"The Sims" computer game originally launched as Windows compatible software only. If you owned a Mac, you couldn't enjoy "The Sims" on your Macintosh computer. Since the original launch, a patch for "The Sims" has been developed which will make the game compatible with the Mac OS X operating system. Once you install the retail version of the game, you need to download and install "The Sims" for Mac OS X 2.0.1 patch to play the game.
