Valve is Working to Build a Talented PS3 Development Team

300°
282w ago - Valve isn't quite as against the idea of developing games for the PS3 as previously thought.

Speaking to Valve's Doug Lombardi at the Left 4 Dead 2 event in London today, JoyStiq (linked above) discovered that the company is still "up on the idea" of developing for the PS3 - it's just waiting until it has hired some decent PS3 coders.

To quote: "If you look at The Orange Box - PC: 96 on Metacritic, 360: 96 on Metacritic, PS3 like... 84 or something. That's not even close to where we are right now with the 360 and PC and the reason is people."

Lombardi went on to say that "we have to get people under our roof who are dedicated, talented PS3 guys and then all bets are off. We can take the same sort of strides and get the quality out of the box and offer the same support post-launch on that platform, as well." Sounds like Valve-developed PS3 games are more a case of "when" than "if," nowadays.

When asked whether Valve is actively seeking to hire PS3 developers, he noted that "Valve is always looking to hire people. So yeah, definitely."
