Thumbs up Steam Coming To Mac Near You!

Last week, Valve Software generated some excitement among gaming fans who noticed Mac OS X menu components and other items in the most recent release of the company's Steam distribution platform for the PC.

12th May...

What are the chances that the .gcfs we currently have on a windows machine would work on a Mac so there'll be no need to re-download them?

[Hmmm - maybe not according to a wiki article.]

Would be good if you could transfer over CD-keys to the Mac version, save having to rebuy the game... but I can't see that happening.

I'm sure I'd read somewhere that a purchased product is a purchased product, no matter which platform you choose to play it on. Fingers crossed it remains true.

I'm game to try it out, but I'm not paying for them again!

Wiki states this: "Through "Steam Play", the Mac client will allow players who have already purchased compatible products in the Windows version to re-download the Mac versions at no cost, allowing them to continue to play the game on the other platform."

I'm sure we'd have heard more about 360 owners swapping copies of games for ps3 etc.

Installed and running here fine, was quite painless and a lot better experience than when it first came out for the PC...

Excellent. Copied across the .gcf files for Portal from my windows install (along with some other source shared gcfs) and it's working just fine!
