Hello everyone im new here and since i updated my Macbook Pro im having problems playing my favorite game [The Sims 3] every time i play it freezes like in a min and i need to shut down my mac. Some people told me it has to do with my Graphic card. and im not the only one with this problem either.
13-inch, Mid 2009
Processor 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 2 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7
Will Mac and EA fix it? or i'm basically messed up and i need to buy a new Mac and play Sims there?

Welcome to the Mac Forums.
Looking through the various posts and the Sims forum, it appears that Sims 3 is not compatible with OS X Lion. You'll either have to wait until it's updated or patched. (If ever.) Given the past performance of Electronic Arts and their shaky support of the Mac platform, I wouldn't be surprised if they did nothing.

According to a "Lion Compatibility List"...The Sims 3 (at the current time) "has problems".
