Gaming on Mac computers is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Although it's not much of a surprise given the advertisements Valve has been leaking (see above), Valve's VP of developer marketing Doug Lombardi has confirmed that some of their game titles will soon be playable on a Mac.

According to Joystiq, some of the titles that will be ported to Macs in April include Half-Life and Left 4 Dead, and Portal 2 will see a simultaneous launch on PCs and Macs soon.

Mac users will also get access to the Steam cloud-based service, allowing users to play games on multiple computers with the same game and community settings.

We should see some more official news soon, probably during the 2010 Game Developers Conference, starting today until March 13.
