With Windows still being the preferred platform of choice when talking about PCs in the gaming industry, it's nice to see Mac users getting a little bit of love every so often.
At Gamescom this year, EA showed that it wasn't going to be leaving the Mac platform out in the cold. The publisher announced that Origin, EA's digital distribution service, whether you wanted it to or not, would be coming to Mac, Facebook, Android, and Smart TV. Yes, this means you can anticipate plenty of free-to-play and casual games blitzing Origin, courtesy of EA.
Along with the announcement came a press release announcing that the new SimCity reboot would be launching for Mac in February 2013 with the Windows release. In order for Mac users to buy and play the game, they'll be forced to download and install Origin, which is conveniently going to be available by that time.

dont bare minimum macs with a tower come with a fairly competent gpu?
Infact it might be a good thing, now mac users can complain about origin aswell.
You mean the i7, and the ATI 6970 available in the iMac aren't enough?
I believe we are going to be able to get large cities like before, all they have shown us so far are sandboxed tech demos using Dev builds of the game which they would be perfecting things with first... i hope.
I have been playing sim city since 2000 and hope this will be a brilliant game, although from the pre order selections it does look like they are going to be going heavy on the DLC content which is a letdown, cant we just have a full games worth of content anymore first and then some expansion content after.
6970M where M means.. crap... I mean mobile. And they charge 100€ if you want 2GB of RAM on it XD
I'm sure the 6970 will do just fine. I have to wonder though, why if both Origin and Apple are on your hate list why you bothered to read the article at all?
