The first thing they could do is sell their games at a reasonable price.

SimCity 4 Deluxe for Mac - $60
SimCity 4 Deluxe for PC - $20

If this is the best they can do, I'll be happy to pay for a copy of Windows XP for gaming and use BootCamp

From the article:

Adams told me, a successful Mac game might sell 50,000 units. It physically hurt my head to hear so low a number. My first question after hearing it was, "How do you do this profitably?" Her reply: "It's always been a razor-thin kind of thing."

Sigh. It looks like it *is* the best they can do.


It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
