Valve Working On Porting Steam To Android And iOS?

Authored by: Douglas Carter — Mar 24, 2011

Those computer geeks out there will certainly remember the name Valve, makers of popular games such as Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2. A lucky visitor to Valve's headquarters recently reported that while there, he head that Valve is thinking about porting Steam, Valve's online game distribution service, to Android and iOS.

Apparently, the visitor, named Political Gamer, was having a conversation with Gabe Newell from Valve when it was revealed that Valve is "looking into the iOS / Android platform for possible expansions with Steam," which seems logical when one considers how popular Android and iOS devices are these days.

Especially when you consider the imminent launch of the Xperia Play and that Amazon's app store just recently launched. This is good news for Android and iOS in the future, but even if the steam store launched tomorrow, it would not be helpful until there were decent titles to download.

There is no solid confirmation on this rumor, but it does make sense for Valve to be expanding the availability of Steam to mobile devices, seeing as how prevalent they are in modern society. Don't worry though, as I'm sure we'll know more "soon."
