Mark May 12th on your iCalendar: Steam (and Portal and Team Fortress AND HALF LIFE) is coming to Mac!
Filed under: Games, Internet, AppleIn true, Valve style — only a month late! — Steam and Valve's first-party games will be coming to Mac on May 12th. I'm not sure which games will actually be available at launch, but I'm guessing we'll see Portal, Team Fortress 2 and Half Life 2 at least — if we see Left 4 Dead, I may actually sell a kidney and buy a Mac.
Valve aren't simply bringing their games to Mac, though. They're also introducing 'Steam Play', an exciting feature that will let you save your game on a PC, and continue playing on your Mac! Or vice-versa! Also — and this bit is gobsmacking if it's true — both Mac and Windows gamers will exist in the same multiplayer universe: Mac and Windows will have the same lobby and server browser system.
I'll finally be able to kill Mac users in an online game.
May 12th will be a glorious day indeed.
