Valve Software today announced it has cancelled Steam for the Mac, the company's digital download software program. The company also announced it will be canceling all of its upcoming Mac titles including Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, among others.
"After careful consideration, my personal hate for Macs was just too much to ignore, said Gabe Newell, Founder and President of Valve Software. "Ever since we announced Steam for the Mac, I've had this awful bloated feeling in my stomach..it was either that chili-cheese hot dog I ate the other day or just the fact that all those pompous Mac users will be getting our beloved Steam made my stomach really upset. Whatever the case, Macs still suck....period."
John Cook, Director of Steam Development, expressed his disappointment to Inside Mac Games. "It's too bad Gabe changed his mind...damn those chili-cheese dogs!".
Valve's Director of Marketing, Doug Lombardi, also shared his thoughts, "I'm not surprised...we canceled the port of Half-Life 2 a few years ago so this should really come as no surprise to Mac users. It's too bad...we really wanted to bleed as much cash out of Mac users as possible. Oh well."
Inside Mac Games will be contacting Mac developers to get their reaction on the cancellation of Steam for the Mac. Stay tuned to this developing news story.
