Steam Officially Available for the Mac, Portal Available for Free

Yes folks, the day all you Mac fans were waiting for has arrived. Steam, Valve’s digital distribution platform is now officially available for the Mac.
After much speculation & teasing and a Beta phase, Steam was finally available today, about a month’s delay from the original intended release date. Although the launch titles are just 3 – namely Torchlight, Portal & Football Manager 2010 – Valve has maintained that they will add new games to the Mac gaming catalog every Wednesday.

And oh, in case you’re wondering, if you’ve already purchased the games for Windows, using Steam Play you can re-download the Mac versions of the games and continue playing your games using the Steam Cloud feature, which sync save games across multiple systems. In case you haven’t purchased any of those, do note that Portal is available for free till the 24th [ yay! ] and Torchlight is at 50% off. So what’re you waiting for ? Go get ’em!

  1. Awesome! Thanks for the news Sathya. I am trying to download Portal now. It looks as if Steams servers are in overload due to this news. I may have to wait some hours before it will download for me.
