Valve releases Steam for Mac

Apple Online StoreSteam is now available for the Mac.

Until today. Steam had been a service exclusively for Widows PC sufferers since it launched in 2004. Now it’s available for Apple’s superior Mac!

Also, Steam’s Portal is free from today until May 24th.

  1. Downloaded Steam – no Mac demos – limited Mac games. Guess it’s a start. Not really a huge gamer at all. But do see the value in recognition by the gaming world that 26 years later the Mac is being viewed as a viable gaming platform.

    Now where is MIST 2010?!?

  2. Eh, it crashed so I restarted and it seems to be a lot better now. The UI doesn’t seem totally polished, though. But all in all, pretty decent for a first release.

    I’m disappointed that except for portal none of the other Valve titles seem to be available yet…

  3. I downloaded Portal, before the servers got too busy. There are actually several games that I bought on Steam for Windows that I now have “free” Mac versions of, which is fantastic.

    @ Jacob: Valve have said they are going to release one per week, every Wednesday. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />
