Why would they sell?Valve is making too much profit.

To those who have disagreed valve has at least doubled profits every year for the past 7 years.

If it was Nexon, I would've burned my computer and thrown it through Valve HQ windows.

I wouldn't have even commented on this if I where a member of Valve, just another b.s. story on the internet.

Company stock prices could suffer if rumors like that are left unchecked.

stock prices normally go up if successful company like Valve is going to sell.

Doubt it would go up if an American company got sold to a Korean company, don't think there would be enough faith.

Valve is a private company. They dont need to report anything.

Valve is a private company
They need not appease anyone but themselves. In 2005, Forbes reported gross revenues of 70 million. Last year, over 1 billion. They make more profit on average than Google, Apple, and MS. Valve is estimated to be worth somewhere between 3-4 billion now so all these rumors of "a billion dollar acquisition from (insert company here)" are laughable.

EDIT: Cold beat me to it so I elaborated a little

Well to add to whats been said, the Korean company was offering less than what EA was offering

Valve is owned by a number of people, and much of the staff would probably leave before their contracts are up.

I don't like Korean games at all, I played a few and its boring, unoriginal, and in the cases of the games I played, its a hassle to progress so they "have" *cough* push *cough* the option to purchase items. They killed justice league when that greedy arse Korean company made a game for it on iPod and look at the reviewers complaining that its impossible to progress without buying items. It's like at 2 stars or 3. So I'm glad valve won't sell to them.

Hit replied to wrong person sorry.

This is true because they are selling to me.

The thought is laughable. NCSoft already crushed City of Heroes like it was nothing (subject for closure in November). Their business decisions are far too unusual for non-Asian developers.

If Valve Software sold, every single gamer out there would seriously HATE them... I would be leading the rage to their office with an AXE in hand wanting Gabe's head (LOL).

Gabe has done an amazing job with Valve. The company started out as a developer... they were doing just great with their library of games. But with the successful development and implementation of Steam, they are their own publisher. Valve Software is a success story that should be left alone to operate.

Gabe will never sell out he is a utter fool if he ever did. I truly believe he is one of the most inspirational people in video game history. Especially for PC gamers.

Valve should just buy Korea.

Gabe: "Which one?"

Choices, choices.... How about both?
