Mac to get more games this year

Good news for Apple users, EA announced they will release a Mac version of Spore and Aspyr says they're working on a Mac version of Call of Duty 4.
Aspyr has said that the Mac OS X version of Call of Duty 4 will be available in May this year and that it'll go at the 'normal asking prices' (Read: $50 or £30, hopefully). However, the release doesn't clear up if the Mac version will be a possibly dodgy port of the PC brilliance, or if it'll be a remade and re-optimised affair.

Electronic Arts has been more specific with the Spore details however, confirming that the PC and Mac versions will both be out later this year. The Mac version will be powered by TransGaming technology which should handle the port flawlessly. EA has also pledged that it'll be only one of several EA games to see side-by-side PC and Mac releases.

"Part of the appeal of the Mac is that it allows you to do creative things very easily. And we think that lines up very closely with what you can do with Spore ... So it just feels like a natural place for Spore to be, and we're thinking about it up front rather than as an afterthought" said EA Maxis VP of marketing Patrick Buechner in a statement.
