World Of Warcraft Q&A
10:20 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Slashdot recently posted Blizzard's answers to questions posed by readers of Slashdot about the popular MMORPG World of Warcraft. The questions cover a wide range, even touching on Blizzard's commitment to supporting the Mac platform.

Question-
Blizzard is one of the few companies that distribues Windows and Mac games together on the same media. Going further, WoW allows Windows and Mac users to play together on the same realms, something which isn't done in other MMORPGS. What kind of hurdles did you have to overcome to get both Windows and Mac versions to co-exist and have you had to make any sacrifices because you were only able to do something on one platfrom and not both?

Response -
There was never any question that World of Warcraft would be co-developed for Windows and Mac users. Blizzard has always supported the Mac platform; you'll notice that even as far back as Warcraft II and Diablo we were there supporting Apple. However, with World of Warcraft, we wanted to improve that relationship further and shoot for a simultaneous release on both platforms. All of us are thrilled that we succeeded in that respect, and we're sure Mac users are happy as well. Both games are equal in every respect; there weren't any features in one version that didn't make it into the other.

For the entire Q&A, and a discussion of whether or not the answers were nothing but PR fluff, follow the link below.
