We knew that it was coming, and now it's official. The universal digital distribution platform for downloadable PC games is now available on Apple's operating system.
Publishers from all sides of the PC industry go to Steam to manage digital download products, for its reach among PC consumers and the incorporated digital rights management (DRM).

Companies like Sega, EA, Activision, and of course Valve release their most current PC titles directly through Steam, as a complement to whatever other retail outlets they have.

Now, those same publishers (and new ones) will be able to release Mac titles over the service as well.

The news comes after quashed rumors that Apple was considering creating its own centralized iPhone-like "App Store" for Mac OS X. Apple denied any such plan, and thus the idea of a robust game distribution platform makes total sense.

Mac users can download Steam as of today from Valve's Web site. Team Fortress 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Portal, and Torchlight are just some of the titles available right now.
