Valve Not Bothering With PS3, Newell Apologizes to PS3 Owners


Sponsored Links
289w ago - Valve boss Gabe Newell recently had a little chit-chat with host Geoff Keighley on tonight's episode of GTTV, where he stated:

Keighley: Are you guys working on PlayStation 3 here now, trying to understand it, trying to get better at it?

Gabe: Uh, no. Not in any real way.

Newell then followed up by apologizing to PlayStation 3 fans, stating he's "sorry" to PS3 owners, who have a "legitimate beef with" Valve.

Newell is noted for his openly negative view of PS3, but when asked about it he said, to quote:

"If you look at the customers that I feel we've done the worst job at taking care of is the people who bought our product on the PS3 - Orange Box on PS3. Those are the people who I have trouble saying anything to other than 'Yeah, I'm sorry. You have legitimate beef with us."

While this does suck, I think most of their games are best played on a PC.

Gabe... I don't miss anything on my PS3 from Valve. These ugly Ports from HL. I don't understand why they don't want to make games on PS3. More money for them. But we don't need Valve.

Orange Box was the best value-price game i ever bought for ps3. (and i have a lot of games)
I grew up with HL1 and CS, so HL2 was a musthave.
Like CyanCaze mentioned, Portal is the most amazing puzzle game ever made.
I could play team fortress for days. Amazing teamwork experience, 5 uniques class specialties. Brilliant game

Left for dead has amazing atmosphere

But that like all they did in those 3 years. Port games

I disagree, Half life 2 is in my opinion the greatest first person shooter of all time. Portal is in my opinion, one of the best puzzle games of all time if not the best (Though they didn't really make it). Team Fortress sucks in my opinion. Or not very fun to be kind. And Left 4 dead isn't one I have tried.

I really don't like it when developers ignore something. I've heard him say they don't develop on the ps3 because it's too complicated. That makes no sense to me because right now I'm playing Uncharted, GTAIV, Skate 2 and will in the future be playing gran turismo 5 and god of war 3. How is it that all these developers can work with it just fine but the people who made the FPS genre their b!tch with Half-Life 1 & 2 can't cut it?

Yeah, you'd think they would be more inclined to develop games for a platform that isn't hacked yet.

To the hell with Valve and the fatso over there. He don't have to apologize to me, 'cause I hate valve games (specially Half Life) and I've never bought one and never will.
