You're probably better off waiting for the Mac version anyway considering all the issues that have been reported with SimCity.

Cool, Good luck
Check the other thread, I think Deranged has a Neowin region if you want to play with other people

Honestly, I want to play with myself, gosh that sounds worse than it is. I like SimCity for the SinglePlayer aspects, if I wanted multiplayer, I'd play SimCity 2000 Network Edition.

They are fixing the game slowly but I would still give them a little more time (despite a few people having fun playing the game). The biggest issue at the moment actually seems to be rollbacks and vanishing cities

Thats also because the sims 3 dvd's shipped with as both windows and mac on one disk, and the download origin grabs is actually the cd image.
I have read that you won't have to pay again to play it on OS X.
I also found that with the Sims 3 attached to my Origin account, I can install and play it on both Windows and OS X without paying extra.
Edit: looking for a solid source about that but I can't find anything despite it being a common question. Even the EA customer service can't give consistent answers.

See the last post on that page.

Your first sentence excited me. Your final sentence made me say, "yup, I'm still waiting."
There IS a solo-play option (which I and others have mentioned) - it's called Sandbox Mode.
The anger isn't over a lack of solo play, but a lack of OFFLINE solo play...

Q: How will users purchase the Mac version?
A: SimCity for Mac will be available as a digital download via Origin. It will be available for pre-purchase on Origin starting April 10th, 2013. If players have already purchased the PC version of the game, then they will receive the Mac version automatically on June 11, with no additional purchase needed.

And here you see my problem, nobody seams to know the correct answer, not even EA. The EA Rep I spoke to Yesterday wasn't even aware that they were releasing a Mac version. Not that he was all that bright honestly.

I wouldn't really call it a 'find' since they announced it on the SimCity Facebook page just now, but you all obviously wanted to know so
Booom!!! SHAKALAKA! Nice find!
Can't wait to be able to remove my Windows Partition again on the 11th, hopefully Maxis properly support the Mac Trackpads with gestures etc.
