Valve could just be looking into the mobile gaming market.
Prime example of Valve tardism and the massive anti-Apple circlejerk.
please just be a business deal to have steam preinstalled on all macs please
woah calm the fuck down everyone, he probably likes Gabe and wanted to talk to him or had some time off and wanted to check the stats of steamplay games or talk about the compatibility of games on the new OSX or talk about a plan to integrate steam iOS to be able to play games like Cogs or Eufloria on iPads or something non-cataclysmic.
It would be a great PR to reveal a certain game in an Apple conference to showoff the capabilities of OSX graphics wise, Or maybe they are just discussing Steam integration with the OSX game center
All Macs will come with Steam. Steam integration into the App store?
Good thing for both companies. More potential consumers for Gabe and Tim can show people that Macs can be for gaming too. Maybe Valve will make Apps for iPhones/iPads?
Christ, you people are a bunch of drama queens.
It's probably because of Steam's support on the Mac and how some of the games are playable. So I'm guessing since Apple's iOS devices are becoming more popular for gaming, Apple wants Valve to have more support on their Mac devices.
or something like that.
It's still nice for Mac users. More gamers to the flock, I suppose.
I'd rather steam for linux over more work on steam for OSX :C
Pixar are making a TF2 movie.
maybe allowing valve to update the fucking steam IOS app? its still buggy as fuck from beta and hasnt been updated since.
This doesn't even mean that Apple wants to buy Valve. It could literally be for any reason.
10 bucks says he's a big Valve fan and probably wanted to look at the headquarters and chat.
Also, Gabe isn't an apple-phobe like a lot of the PC community. A few years back he used to use Apple displays in his set up.
Also, it may have something to do with this.
Could Steam be coming to the mobile platform? Maybe.
Being a long time consumer(and fan) of Valve products, I must say I have lost a great deal of respect for valve after reading this article
free hats with every ipad sold
Apple uses their 100 billion in liquid cash to purchase Valve in its entirety.
Wow I swear to fuck you guys carry on about apple, this isn't a bad thing you know
this is akin to the tabloids in the super-market where it says that Angelina Jolie is having an affair with Sean Penn because they happened to occupy the same dimension.
I just looked at the title and thought "They're here to talk about Steam on Mac." Nothing to panic about guys, but feel free to do so, it's more fun that way.
