fifa2012
EA, which owns the hugely popular FIFA soccer video game franchise, has brought the game to the Mac for the first time with FIFA 2012, as noted by The Loop. The game is available via digital download for $39.99 on Gametree Mac.

For the first time ever, the best-selling FIFA Soccer franchise is being made available on the Mac with FIFA Soccer 12!

Chosen Best Sports Game by E3 Game Critics, FIFA Soccer 12 brings to the pitch the game-changing new Player Impact Engine, a physics engine built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Revolutionary gameplay innovations inspired by the real-world game make FIFA Soccer 12 deeper and more engaging. All-new Precision Dribbling creates a higher fidelity of touch on the ball for better control in tight spaces, more time to make decisions on attack, and more control over the pace of the game. Innovations in attack are balanced by a re-designed defending mechanism called Tactical Defending, which fundamentally changes the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling. Plus, CPU players have been infused with Pro Player Intelligence, the next generation of player intelligence and performance.

FIFA is the best-selling sports video game franchise of all time, with more than 100 million units sold worldwide.

FIFA 2012 for Mac requires OS X 10.6.8 or higher, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of RAM, and an ATI HD2600 or NVIDIA GeForce 9400M or greater, with 256MB of VRAM. Most notably, the game won't run on the Intel GMA 950 or X3100 video cards.

Perhaps Swindon Town? After all, despite not having Rooney or Landycakes on their books they have their own bespoke FIFA 12 cover available...



Personally, I'm not a big fan of such games as I'm rubbish at them. Besides, all we Mac-owning, game-playing, football-loving losers know Football Manager is the proper way to wastefully fritter away our evenings. ;)

That notwithstanding though, the FIFA series is hugely popular and the arrival of hugely popular games on the Mac platform can surely only be a good thing. Hopefully it'll be a good port too.

It's EA so it will no doubt suck.

How they ever win awards is beyond me; I swear they have to bribe people. I've played several of their award winning games and have been disappointed every time.

agreed. :D

if not, i'll buy the PS3 version.

what are the differences between the PC/Mac against PS3/XBOX 360?

From what I gathered, it's pretty much the same.. with better resolution and fast loading times ;)

unlike previous version that has big difference in gameplay, 2012 pc's and console's is the same..
