"Valve Software has announced the public release of its new Mac version of the Steam gaming platform will happen May 12, slightly later than its initial goal of April."
I have used the Steam engine years ago, when I used to have a PC at home, to play some of the first person shooter games and it served it's purpose. However once I picked up an Xbox 360 those days were over. Well, that and the fact that my PC died and I never bought another one. Regardless, glad they are going to offer a Mac version. This will also be considered as a "tier-1 platform" so games will be released simultaneously for Mac/PC/Xbox 360 versions. The Mac and PC users will also be on the same servers and able to play games together as part of the same "multi-player universe." Could this be the first step in the peace process in the PC-Mac war?? Let's give peace a chance!
You can find more about it at the Steam site where they have posted the press release.
