As reported by Kotaku, curious users have stumbled upon various OS X-specific graphics, including the open, maximize and minimize jewel icons found in the system’s windows. There were other graphics found within the files, each one leading to a stronger case for the program’s potential addition to Macs.
While Steam is currently Windows-only, it makes sense that Valve would want to take advantage of the underserved portion of the marketplace that’s comprised of Mac gamers who wish to buy Mac copies of titles from companies like EA, Pop Cap, and id Software without having to rely on multiple sources.
While Valve has not publicly supported or denounced these findings, it remains an interesting possibility. If you’re a Mac gamer (or even if you’re not), let us know what you think about this possibility in the comments – do you want Steam, or are you fine purchasing your games elsewhere?
