181w ago - Gabe Newell announced something at E3 2010 even he didn't expect to ever say, and that is that "Portal 2" will be coming to the PS3.
He jokingly said that "Kevin Butler was introduced to him as the VP of sharpening things." He went on to say "When the PlayStation 3 was introduced, I was the one of the platform's biggest critics," said Newell.
"However, Sony has proved that the PlayStation 3 is the most open platform of all the current generation consoles and has worked extremely hard to make the platform the most desirable for consumers and developers.
"As such, we are delighted to announce Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 and believe the Steamworks support included will make it the best console version of the game." This means that Xbox has lost another exclusive that was once never thought to leave.
225w 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."
