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 8600m 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?
