Why is Deus Ex: Human Revolution in Mac App Store but not on Steam?
I paid for this game, which is available for Mac OS X plataform. Why can't I download it from Steam?

He asked a question, you don't need to flaunt your opinions.

I know, that was selfish of me.

Piteru, I have no idea about that (since I dont have a mac)
maybe its because it has windows files?

I don't think so. I mean, there is a version of this game for Mac, but it isn't available on Steam.

Its because Square Enix decided to release the Mac OS X version with out Steam. Not Valve or Steams fault. Will you see an OS X version on Steam? No. Sorry, try and get a refund but you should have seen the Windows symbol when buying it. There was no Mac Symbol on Steam saying it was available.

Have a nice day

wel first of all your problem is that you have a Mac, you wont be able to play it unless you have the mac pro or one with a dedicated graphics card (juss' sayin') no offense to mac users and their overpriced aluminum.
Well, what is it? Dec 2, 2012 @ 2:49pm

None taken, it works just fine on my 4 year old GT120 based iMac. You want to play it on Steam rather than buy it again for Mac? Last I checked a Windows 8 license cost less than Deus Ex on Mac. It's all good. *Sent from my overpriced alluminium that's still got 50% of it's value if sold 2nd hand, how's that working out for you plastic beige brigade?* ;)

The reason is because another developer released the game for EIDOS on the MAC and they will not make any money if the steam version is downloadable, basically.

And on a side note the game runs perfectly on my 3 year old iMac via Windows 7.

I was wondering if this would work in Boot Camp. I am guessing by your post that it shouldn't be a problem. I haven't had any problems running any games in Boot Camp so far, hopefully this works too. Thanks.

♥♥♥♥ this. Now they are also selling the "Director's cut" which is OSX compatible but will not include the OSX version of the regular game to us? Well, off to https://www.humblebundle.com/store where you they have it for $5 with Steam keys included.
