Valve launches its Steam video-game marketplace for Linux and, in typical Valve fashion, is having a huge sale to celebrate.
To celebrate the release, Valve kicked off a week-long sale on 50 available Linux games. The sale offers gamers the chance to save up to 50 percent off of the original price.
Rumors of Steam for Linux have long been discussed. Last July, Valve confirmed that they were working on such a product. By November, Valve began a closed beta and in December, the company opened the beta to the public.
Valve has reportedly been planning a Linux version since Valve chief Gabe Newell became increasingly vocal against Windows 8. According to PCMag.com, Mr. Newell says that Microsoft 8 will be “a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space.”
