PlayOnLinux and Steam

Postby simon04 » Thu Mar 28, 2013 4:15 pm

Can anyone help please?

I wondered if the Steam account is free on PlayOnLinux?

Is it possible to download and use any of the software listed on PlayOnLinux?

Thanks in advance,

Make a steam accoun never cost anything. A few games like "team fortress" are playable for free. A much larger pannel of game are in the range of 2-3 euros.

Playonlinux only gives you the possibility to play a game. It's like on windows, finally. Licences don't change ! You buy your CD legally, or download it illegaly, your choice !
But still, you have no excuse for the price, because things like GOGs allow you to buy all theses old games for a very cheap price.

For more native games, I advice you to follow the humble bundles ; you can give to charity and play a load of fantastic games for... The price you dare to give. (but we all know that linux users are the most generous ! Most of the time.)

If you want to play the last games released, please don't use linux for gaming. There is a few exceptions like Starcraft2, or LoL, but at the end of the day, there will be always 6-10 mounths of "unstable" adaptations barely playable, before getting something worth.
