Mac gaming used to something of a weird joke (excluding Marathon of course) but now it’s an actual thing. I’ve been playing a fair few games on my MacBook Pro, and I busted Kotaku web designer Ben White playing Portal 2 on his Mac. With the touchpad. Urgh. Anyway — we’ve just heard that Borderlands 2 is heading to the Mac, and will be available on Steam in a couple of weeks.
The system requirements, as provided by Aspyr, are as follows:
CPU Processor: Intel Quad Core
CPU Speed: 2.4 GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Video Memory (VRam): 512MB
*Apple original CPU’s only, CPU upgrades not supported.
The following video chipsets are unsupported…
ATI RADEON HD 2000 series
NVIDIA 9400m, 9600m
It’s interesting that the game has only taken a couple of months to get a Mac release. It seems as though the disparity between these ports is reducing massively. How much longer until all games have a roughly simultaneous PC and Mac release?
