Default steam on mac? maybe in future - 03-04-2010, 02:43 AM

So for all of you who have a hackintosh, Steam might be coming to the Mac.

Valve to Bring Steam, Half-Life, and More to the Mac?

I saw another article from Mashable that confirms that Valve is rewriting some of the most popular games for the Mac

I dont see how that makes much sense. Mac's are not good gaming machines to begin with. MBP's have at best sli 9400m and 9600gt. even the mac pro desktop only has a gt 120....

Steam Brings Portal 2 and Half-Life Series to Mac

I found the article. It refrences that Valve plans to release the popular titles like the entire Half-Life series, Team Fortress 2, Portal and both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. They also plan on releasing Portal 2 on the PC & Mac at the same time.

Also, since Steam is really just the delivery boy, your games you buy will be playable, Mac or PC. No word on if you can play together (ie. macs and pcs together in online play) but I'd assume that's a necessary component.

Maybe with the native versions, and the way the Mac OS was written, they won't need as powerful of graphics to get the same result.

Valve is also releasing some very funny wallpapers. Such as the one that shows a turret from TF2 and a turret from Portal, and under the TF2 turret is says "I'm a PC."
