Well, they were supposed to ship in July. Some other EA titles shipped in August, and now, here in the latter part of October, EA is finally shipping Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 and Madden 08 for Mac according to MacNN.

Both titles require Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later and a 1.83GHz Core Duo Processor, at least 1GB of RAM, a DVD-ROM drive and a Nvidia (7300 or better) or ATI (x1600 or better) graphics processor…Oh, and they are INTEL ONLY. So Power PCs need not apply.

The games also note that they take information to provide online, in-game advertising.

Yeah, you read that right.

Frankly, this online in game advertising (which these games are not the first to do by a long shot) is an immediate deal breaker for me. If you’re going to subject me to advertising, the damn thing better be free. You don’t see us charging a subscription fee around here do you?

If you want them, you can get them at the Apple store.

  1. It really depends how its done, in most cases I’d rather they had real products being advertised in the games, on billboards, posters, ect. It makes it seem more real as thats what it would be like in real life. Only exception I would have to say is GTA, I love their hilarious jokes on real products.

    Yeah, I get the realistic aspect of it – I just refuse to pay $50 to $70 dollars for a video game that is then going to subject me to advertising.

    If they want to keep it real, and throw the ads in, then they can give me the game for free – or at least for a less expensive price.
