Real Racing 2 comes to the Mac App Store

The auto racing gold standard on the iPhone and iPad is Eletronic Arts Real Racing and, now, it’s available on the fairer platform and for sale on the mothership’s benchmark software marketplace for the Macintosh, though I think they might be overreaching a bit vis-a-vis the price.

Experience the excitement, competition and glory of authentic championship racing with 30 officially licensed cars, 15 stunning tracks and a comprehensive Career Mode. Featuring visually-stunning graphics and state-of-the-art handling, take control of the wheel with your iPhone or iPad – or use your Mac to steer your way to first place!

Real Racing 2 ($12.99) is available on the Mac App Store and I think that’s three bucks too much. Whereas I have no idea what it cost Electronic Arts to produce this title, the great majority of iOS to Mac ports (if that’s what this is) cost $9.99 or less.

Yes, there are exceptions, but $9.99 is a neat and tidy number. In fact, if you search the Mac App Store for “racing,” you will find the great majority cost less than five bucks.

Another way of thinking about this is Real Racing twice as good as the other racing games available — it’s an easy calculation that invites purchase versus the notion of 13 vs 5 or worse…

What’s your take?
