Steam’s Mac release games

When I first started Mac steam, they hadn’t sorted the store links out yet, so only games I already owned were available to me. On apress release by valve, mentioning only 2 games, seeing 63 was a big surprise (maybe a few of those are packs).

There are a number of indie games and already cross-platform games most being within the family genre, so a lot thats not of great interest, but several I already own.  Wondering how many companies will now decide to invest in mac development.  I don’t think I am going to be moving away from my PS3 for several titles.  Granted console controllers are not necessary the best for FPS games, but after quite a while you get used to it.  At least the choice won’t be automatically be made for me any more, both a good & bad thing.


Sony don’t want to take my money :(

It’s disappointing that it seems sony’s PlayStation 3 store can’t handle the demand of this weeks store updates.  Here I am trying to buy the MW2 Stimulus package and being presented with an unhelpful “An error has occurred (80023103)”.

I, maybe, almost grabbed a free code thanks to GameTrailers on twitter/Facebook.  The codes seem to have gone in under 5 seconds, I even plugged in a keyboard, never mind.

Lets hope this problem gets sorted soon, I really want to spend money on things that seem a little over-priced (old packs were £7.99, new is £10.99), and knowing my luck will decide I don’t want to use.

Update: After closing on 3 hours of trying, its downloading, although there are 7 versions to choose from, each different depending on your Disc ID.
