SimCity for Mac arriving later this month, hoping for a smoother launch

We knew SimCity for Mac would be arriving at some point when Maxis and Electronic Arts announced the news earlier this year, and finally, after seeing a delay past its initial June launch, Mac gamers will be able to get their grubby little hands on the game starting on August 29, just six or so months after the PC version was released under pretty bad circumstances.

Wii U ZombiU so unprofitable Ubisoft puts Nintendo on notice

Wii U ZombiU so unprofitable Ubisoft puts Nintendo on notice

Dire sales of flagship games for the Wii U have left developers like Ubisoft, Activision, and EA freezing development for Nintendo's console, with launch titles like ZombiU failing to make a profit. The zombie game, one of the featured titles released alongside the Wii U in November 2012, was "not even close" to making a profit, Ubisoft chairman and CEO Yves Guillemot admitted to GamesIndustry, with the studio now having no intention to make a sequel and in fact opting to hedge its bets with cross-platform support on what was initially to be a new Wii U-only game.

EA up against Indian PC gamers in Twitter coup

Electronic Arts hasn't been the most favored game publisher recently. They were crowned the worst company in America for the second year in a row, and their strict DRM policy isn't really popular amongst gamers.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare coming spring 2014

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was unveiled during E3 2013 this week, but unlike the first Plants vs. Zombies and the sequel coming July 18, Garden Warfare will be a third-person shooter themed after the series, which makes sense, seeing how the title of the game is a play on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series.

SimCity for Mac delayed

Bad news for Mac gamers with deity delusions; EA has revealed that it is delaying SimCity for Mac, just days before the game was expected to hit shelves.

EA dumps Online Pass system for used games after player vitriol

EA dumps Online Pass system for used games after player vitriol

EA has begun eliminating its little-loved Online Pass program, the scheme which meant those playing second-hand games would need to pay separately for online access, with no new titles requiring the system and older titles being updated to remove it. The controversial scheme was initially introduced as a way for EA to monetize used games sales, with the Online Pass included in the original box but only being valid for a single account.

Mirror’s Edge 2 leaks again: Tipped for Xbox One E3 2013 reveal

Much-rumored EA game Mirror's Edge 2 seems to have been prematurely given the official nod today, with a listing for the unannounced title spotted at EA's help site. Swiftly pulled - though not before a screencap could be taken - the listing didn't actually have any details of the game, but its existence alone is enough to seemingly confirm that it's in the pipeline, potentially for the Xbox One among other consoles.
