Mac gets Steam-y on May 12

Valve has just sent over good news for Mac gamers; the public release of Steam for the Mac hits May 12. No further details were given, just the promise that more information is coming soon.

Holding true to their word (well, almost), last month Valve said that the Steam service, as well as the Source engine, would be compatible with Macs by this month. Along with Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Portal, and the Half-Life series hitting Macs, Valve is also introducing Steam Play, which allows customers to play purchased games on either a Mac or Windows PC free of charge.
