Backyard Hockey Mac-bound

Parents may be familiar with the Backyard line of children's sports games. Developed by Infogrames subsidiary Humongous Entertainment, the Backyard titles feature various sports played by mini-versions of real-life players as well as imaginary ones.
An IMG reader recently forwarded us an e-mail he received from Infogrames after inquiring about an ad from CompUSA listing Backyard Hockey as a hybrid Mac/PC after finding only the PC title on store shelves. The response is quite encouraging:
You will be able to purchase the Mac version of this title in December 2002. If you've already purchased the CD, please send your full mailing address as we will exchange your version with the PC/MAC hybrid version as soon as it's available.Though Infogrames' site fails to mention the Mac version, it's great to get confirmation to the contrary from Infogrames, and the offer to exchange the PC-only version for a hybrid disc is even nicer.
For those unfamiliar with Backyard Hockey, this title continues the Backyard trend, featuring customizable uniforms, all 30 NHL teams, and real-life players such as Mike Modano. More information can be found at Infogrames' official site.
