Apple: Steam on Mac was just what the doctor ordered

Steam game a much-needed boost to Mac gaming

Apple's chief operating officer Tim Cook has been talking about how Steam's arrival on Mac has affected their home computer platform.

Speaking at their Back to the Mac event in California today Cook had nothing but good things to say about what Valve are doing for the Mac as a gaming platform through Steam.

Although Macs only account for around five percent of the users on Steam, Cook said that the arrival of Steam on the Mac has vastly improved the Mac's standing as a gaming platform.

Cook said: "We have new devs like Valve. They're bringing titles simultaneously to the Mac and PC. Like Half Life. This is great for the Mac, and a great shot in the arm for gaming on Macs."
