Valve Announces May 12th Debut for Steam on Mac OS X

In a very brief press release, Valve Software today announced that the public launch of Steam for Mac OS X is scheduled for May 12th. Officially announced in early March, Steam will bring a major game distribution platform, including Valve's library of popular games, to the Mac.

Valve today announced the public release of Steam for the Mac is May 12. Please stay tuned for more information.

A closed beta of Steam for Mac has been ongoing with testers initially putting Valve's Portal through its paces. Through Valve's "Steam Play" feature, users will be able to play games on multiple operating systems while only having to purchase each title once.

Valve had initially targeted April for a Steam for Mac release, and the reason for the slight delay beyond the original estimate is currently unknown.
