EB on Mac Game Sales
2:41 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

In response to the recent news about the Macintosh section of Electronic Boutique's website EBworld.com disappearing, a MacGamer forum user by the name of "awarlock" posted what appears to be a response from EB in regards to his inquiry about this topic:

Thank you for writing EBgames.com! We are experiencing problems getting shipments in for our mac games, that's why the tab's been taken off the website. We are still selling the mac games we have in stock though. The tab for the mac games will be back up after we start getting games in again.
MacGamer further adds that an "anonymous" phone call made to EB supposedly revealed that Mac games are still available by clicking on the "Advanced Search" tab at their website (as noted in our article on the issue posted Monday), as well as the fact that recent database changes have taken place, which may account for the disappearance of the Macintosh section. However the Macintosh tab for the site didn't just vanish -- it was actually replaced by one labeled Action Figures, and there is no room for it to return. Hopefully EB will get their database and shipment issues resolved shortly.
