Valve Announces Steam for Mac

After weeks of hinting, Developer Valve finally announced today that they will be releasing a version of the subscription-based PC game service Steam for Macintosh computers.  The Mac version, which will debut in April, will bring “Left 4 Dead 2”, the Half-Life series, Team Fortress 2 and Portal right away.  Valve plans to begin simultaneously releasing games on Valve for both Mac and Windows gamers, beginning with their next big hit, “Portal 2”.

The developer made sure to highlight that the Mac version of steam will work exactly the same as the original, with a single addition:  “Steam Play”, the only new feature announced, allows gamers who buy a game on one platform to re-download what they’ve purchased at no additional cost.
