Question What is SteamPlay?

I see this icon next to some games that I puchase that says "SteamPlay". I'm an avid PC user, so I don't know what it means exactly?

Can someone point me in the right direction, so I can further in detail about it?

Thanks.

Steamplay just means that if you buy that game from the steam store you will receive a copy for both PC and Mac.

It means you can play that game on Mac, too (in the case of Portal 2 - ps3 too). Basically your one license can also be loaded on a mac, and if it's multiplayer, you can play with Mac users if you're on a PC.

It actually means you will be able to play the game on both PC and mac, not that you get 2 copies (you might get 2 virtual content parts with your subscription).

Steam Play allows customers to purchase a game once and play it on all Steam supported platforms.

Also means you get it for windows and mac.

Steam Play allows you to purchase your games once and play anywhere. Whether you have puchased your Steam Play enabled game on a Mac or PC, you will be able to play on the other platform free of charge.

Thanks for all the responses. I don't know why I couldn't find that in the Support section? LOL.

Cheers!
