Last month, Valve confirmed that its hugely successful Steam downloadable games service would be coming to Macs. That’s pretty big news, especially if you’re a Mac gamer who’s spent years enviously eyeing up the PC’s superior line-up.
The service was supposed to kick off in April, but to everybody’s amazement, Valve has delayed something. Fortunately, we’re not talking Half-Life 2: Episode Three-style delays here: instead, the public release of Steam for the Mac will launch on May 12.
What games will Steam on Mac launch with? Valve’s not saying, though we do know that Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Portal and the Half-Life series will appear at some point.
On a related note, if you played through Portal and didn’t love it more than your own firstborn, then congratulations, you are officially a drooling simpleton of the highest order.
Actually, sorry, that isn’t related at all. But my god, it needed saying.
