Did you actually install the game on your hard disc?

Explain to them very nicely that you accidently bought the PC version and want to exchange it for the Mac version.  It's worth a shot and they will probably go for it.  If you bought it from a store bring it in with EVERTHING that was in the box.  If you bought it online you'll want to email them and explain it to them before trying to send it in.

If all else fails and you have a compatible Intel Mac then you can run it in Boot Camp.

okay ill ask them. should i just get a refund? because the copy i brought was the only copy they had, and it wasnt in a box =/. i brought it at gamestop so i doubt they have any mac games lol. and i was playing it on my PC version very fun but i dont want it on my windows because the computer is in my parent's room and the computer is very slow =/.

thanks tho i will ask them if they have a mac version

Well, you can always ask, but be prepared to hear "No".  Too many people try to steal games that way so the honest people suffer in the end.  You can still recoup your investment by selling it.

Yeah, by the title of your game, its definitely the PC version. GoGamer for the mac has the best price so far at $34.90

Come on Macgamestore at least match that price. Yours is still listed at $48.95. EEK !!!!!

I worked at a software shop in vienna once, they don't accept any opened software. Ever. But gamestop might buy it back off of you, as second hand. But probably for less or somesuch.

This is a good opportunity to try our Buy & Sell forum, or give eBay a shot.  Try to get some of your money back.  Be more careful next time!  :cool:
