Valve Software, whose Steam download services has become a successful content distribution platform for the PC, will expand to the Apple Macintosh, the company said.

I think this might spur some more developers to also port their games to the Mac side of things, however; Windows will still always be the true gaming side of OS's.

I was surprised to see that Valves games are moving to Cider here (steam + apple = cider).

Darn, Foyle beat me to it! At least mine was a pic. I was there the week before last when the dude said that on Sunday.

Parallels still works wonders. Saying that, the only game I play on my MBP is World of Goo. lol.

Am I right in thinking that any game I have already will need to be re-purchased to work on the Mac version of steam?

Any game that will work with this new SteaMac will surely have to be Mac and PC compatible in the first place so this means.. not a lot of choice, unless you fancy playing the very old Ghost Recon Games.

So sorry Mac users... no Nancy Drew for you!

Nancy Drew is a diehard classic, it will surely be ported over by Activision. They would be insane not too! I mean come on Foyle has it. [casanova]

Edit:

It seems Mac users are now going to get L4D1 & 2 now, who would have guessed. [tongue]

I wonder if we can gift Source games to Mac players if we got extra copies laying around from Christmas sale/weekend deals, or if those are PC specific gifts.

Also... would I be able to install Steam on my girlfriends Mac so she can play my Source games (on my account offline) like L4D2, or games I buy for PC have different cd keys than Mac version? Little unclear in article whether "Steam Play" addresses that or if it is something different.

Atleast it was gifted, not bought. [thumbs_up]

@Sparks

Those are very interesting questions, however though, I don't think they would add this ability as its using the CD key for 2 copies, althought they might! We'll have to wait and see.
