EBWorld Drops Mac Games?
10:31 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Several alert IMG readers have passed along the news that EBgames.com, the online retail site for Electronics Boutique, seems to have dropped the "Macintosh" tab from their tabbed-folder interface on the home page.


Update: after some suggestions from IMG readers and some exploring, it seems that Mac games are indeed still for sale, but require quite a bit more work to find. You can still find Mac titles via the search engine, but specific links to the Mac section seem to have been removed, though the page itself still exists. Interestingly enough, the link for Linux games remains. We've contacted EBgames for an explanation and will bring you their reply.


We're not sure of the significance of this development, as Mac gamers still have plenty of retail outlets to choose from when purchasing games. It may just be a symptom of the general contraction of the online retail industry as razor-thin profit margins and a slowing economy take their toll.


If you miss the EBgames site and are looking for a place to spend your sorrows, may we humbly recommend the IMG online store. Not only do we work directly with publishers to bring you amazing deals, every purchase helps to support IMG and allow us to bring you the latest and most in-depth information on the world of Mac gaming.
