Portal is FREE on Steam for Mac, PC Until May 24

Perhaps to celebrate all the newcomers onto Steam thanks to the new version available for Mac, Valve is making the best first person puzzler ever completely free of charge.

Yes, that's right, from now until May 24, Portal is available on Steam for absolutely nothing more than just a few mouse click.

Regardless whether you're playing on a Mac or PC, there's no excuse not to own Portal – especially since you need to get caught up before the sequel hits later this year.

Get it all here.

    Regardless of the recent deal, making a cheap, popular game free is a very nice way to attract thousands of customers through honest marketing.

    Ironically, the first time I used steam was when I bought Modern Warfare 2 for PC :P
  • wooooooooooooow... is not that they are giving away an average game... portal has to be the most unique FPS shooter in the history...

    Why say "Portal is FREE on Steam for Mac, PC Until May 24" Why not just say. Portal is free on steam? Putting Mac first like that implies that Valve is giving special promotion to apple users.
