226w 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."

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?
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.
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.
