    I bought WoW some time ago when I ran a PC. Is there an installer on the same CD's for the OS X edition? Amazon shows the same game for Windows/OSX/etc? I don't see separate retail packages for one platform over another?

    how long has it been this way? If I remember right originally only the Windows version was released and the OS X version came much later?

    World of Warcraft was always this way.

    Older games were a tad different. Some did contain both versions some didn't. WarIII RoC has both Mac (not intel) and Windows installer, my copy of Diablo 2 has both, etc and so forth.

    Alright. I'll check my discs for sure tonight. I could have sworn the OS X edition came out later, thus early WoW adopters only got the Windows edition.

    Bought my copy shortly after the game was released. Blizzard has been doing Mac/Windows installers on the same disk for a while. WoW was/is no different. It was released (and it says on my box) with both installers.

    I played the beta on a Mac. It definitely came out at the same time. ;)
