Steam could be on the train toward iOS and Android - full Steam ahead?

Steam headed to iOS and Android-powered devices?

| Gaming News | Posted: Mar 24, 2011 1:31 pm

Rumor has it that Valve is considering bringing its ever-so-popular gaming download portal, Steam, to iOS and Android-based devices. The rumors started when a meeting between Valve lead Gabe Newell and a steampowered.com forum member.

During this chat he confirmed that Steam will get a video recorder very soon, also he said they were looking into the iOS/Android platform for possible expansions with Steam.

Valve has already broken out of the Windows-only environment and have a Mac version that was released last May. Steam for Mac has bought a world of gaming to the Apple OS which before was not considered a serious gaming platform. If Valve do intend on releasing Steam for iOS/Android it would bring an entire new dimension to smartphones and tablets.

 

The reply of to42366 to the thread pretty much sums it up:

 

HOLY CRAP SO EPIC
