Mac version?

Sony is all about creating goods that are both compelling and esthetic. Apple does too.


Sony, you have the talent and intelligence to build a Macintosh version of EQN alongside the PC version.


Please consider it. Thank you.

    You're chances of that happening is a 1000 times better if you posted on their forums, not here.

    If it didn't cost them a huge amount of time/money to do so, I'd say go for it. As it is though, Mac users, especially gamers are not the majority. They've already pre-promised a PS4 version which I doubt we'll see for several years after the PC release.

    If you ask Smed if it will ever be on Gameboy, he'd probably say "That sounds great." =)

    SoE has yet to put any of their games on a Mac going over 15 years of MMOs. I would not hold you breath as I have seen this kinda post many times in SoW forums. Its never gone anywhere. Who knows, maybe that will change but I dont think it will =- I would say your best bet is run a windows emulator on your mac and play it that way or just get a PC.

    if Planetside 2 gets a mac version -- it could happen for other SOE games

    I think they may make a mac version of EQN, as already pointed out here by others.

    However, there is nothing stopping you as a mac user from setting up bootcamp and using that to play any windows PC game you want.

    If you do a 1-1 comparison of a OSX vs Windows game version, on the same hardware, you get better frame rates on the windows version.  It's not drastic, but it is better in most cases.

    On top of this, the library of windows games is vastly larger than the library of Mac games.

    I'm not trying to crap on your mac, as you already bought it and you use it for whatever you think you wanted a mac for.  But you should take advantage of bootcamp.  Get an OEM copy of Win7 64bit or win8.1 64 bit (about $70), use bootcamp and get the most out of your mac that way.

    If you get windows 8.1, there shouldn't be any real need for you to buy another copy for at least 5 years.  Even if you upgrade and buy a new mac, you can transfer the windows software to it and not have to buy another one.  So it's such as small investment, and then you get access to a huge amount of games over a long period of time.

    It's a way better option than posting on game forums begging the devs to release a mac version.  Take matters into your own hands.
