SimCity Finally Launches for the Mac!

SimCity Finally Launches for the Mac!

It’s been a damn long time coming – but as of this morning, SimCity is finally available for the Mac, several months after the Windows release. EA and Maxis’ new SimCity game has seen mixed success on PCs, after facing server issues that marred the initial launch. The Mac version was delayed numerous times as a result, first from February to June, and then from June back to August in order to prevent similar issues from marring the game’s launch on OS X. But at last, it has finally arrived!
