Oni to Have Separate SKUs
12:55 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Dedicated fansite Oni Central is reporting the news that several readers who have pre-ordered this upcoming third-person action title have discovered that it will not be a 'hybrid' Mac/PC release; it will ship as separate Mac and PC versions. Their orders for the hybrid version of Oni from Amazon.com were rescinded and replaced with an order for the Mac boxed version with a separate SKU (product inventory number).
This comes as no surprise, as the publisher for Mac Oni is Gathering of Developers; all of GoD's past Mac titles (including Railroad Tycoon II Gold and RT: The Second Century, Fly! and Fly2) have all had separate boxed Mac versions. GoD's upcoming Mac releases Rune and Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 will also ship as separate Mac SKUs.
Oni Delayed Until January 2001?
This information might be cause for concern among Mac fans, as it opens the door for the possibility that the Mac and PC versions of Oni might not ship at the same time. However, all indications so far are that the Mac, PC and PS2 versions of this game are intended to ship simultaneously. Possible release dates have ranged from January 11, 2001 to March of that year, although a late December release has also been suggested by some sources.
