The improbable couple: EA and Mac

 Behold — Armageddon draws nigh! Electronic Arts has taken two positive steps in the past two days, so you know something’s afoot. As soon as they make a game that I actually buy, the omniverse is finished. I hope you guys are right with Jesus.

Both Gizmodo and Engadget are at Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference and they’re saying the same thing: that EA is putting its considerable weight behind Mac, that traditionally maligned and forgotten OS that could. Command & Conquer 3, Battlefield 2142, Need for Speed Carbon and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix should be availble in July while EA Sports titles (Tiger Woods ’08 and Madden ’08, for example) will drop, as usual, in the fall. 

I, for one, have to applaud EA for this — the more people that get to play games, the better. And with John Carmack’s new game engine also bringing the love, who knows what will be in store for Mac gamers?
