    Valve Not Bothering With PS3, Newell Apologizes to PS3 Owners

    Sponsored Links
    Valve boss Gabe Newell recently had a little chit-chat with host Geoff Keighley on tonight's episode of [Register or Login to view links], 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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."

    I still see a big fat guy who like doing sexual favours for bill gates.

    yeah the first half life was ok because it ran on quake2 tech.

    and you could write mod's for it ala counterstrike.. but thats the way the cake cuts.

    Haha, sure those other games they've made Half-life, Team Fortress, Portal, and Left 4 Dead are not as popular as Counter Strike, hell you probably never even heard of them. So no big loss to the PS3 boys.

    PS3 owners aren't outraged that they don't have all the valve games. Developers go where the money goes. Unless they are truly so lazy and don't want to put the effort into reaching out to another market. With the fact that piracy is rampant on the xbox 360 why not offer games to a customer base willing to buy games.

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

    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?

    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.

    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
