Electronic Arts Support For Mac On Future Cop
[10: 54 AM] Andrew Brownsword wrote us to let us know exactly how Future Cop made its way to the Mac.

"It is important to note that EA released Future Cop on the Macintosh ONLY because of the efforts of one of the lead engineers. He developed the product on the Mac in parallel with the PC and then convinced EA to put it on the CD and label the box accordingly. It is CRITICAL that ALL Mac users who purchase this product register it with EA and make certain that it is clearly stated that they bought it for the Macintosh version. This will be one step towards EA ever doing future Mac products -- if they don't see any "Mac" sales, they will write the market off completely as a waste of time."

Thanks for informing us about this Andrew.

The Mac Observer Spin: As we said earlier today, support for the Mac has been almost nil during the last two years. Andrew raises one of the most important issues that we as Mac gamers must pay attention to. It is imperative that we register our games and register them as Mac games! While the Hybrid CDs that contain both PC and Mac versions of the same game offer benefits of distribution and pricing, they make it hard for publishers and game developers to know where their sales are coming from. Only by buying and registering the product as a Mac game can we let these companies understand that they can make money in the Mac market.
