Yeah I've been seeing this bit of news flying around the internet, I wonder if Mac Users are going to see ports of the Source engine games or maybe just dedicated Mac Games coming to Steam, I guess we'll all have to wait and see!

I doubt it will have many games on there to start with, no where near the amount available on Windows.

I think all source games will be availiable - Valve stated that they compiled games for PC and Mac at the same time, from the same code, and as it was tested at the same time. Wich means steam games doesn't need alot of porting.

Wonder if Black Mesa Source will work?

Today to my shock, using the beta client l got of a Mac application website, l find today l can install both Portal and Team Fortress 2.

Using the:
Open Browser and access this URL: http://store.steampo...macbeta/welcome
Click "Play Portal Now For Free"

And associate the Application and it will log in using a valid account.


Attached File  pic1.jpg   364.23KB   13 downloads

Attached File  pic2.jpg   358.49KB   11 downloads

After completing the download of portal it gives the play button, but won't launch the game. I guess they are preparing for the release of these games for May 12th.

One can only get even more excited with anticipation.
