makes sense to say pc/ps3. Most free content made with source will be charged for xbox gamers who pay for online. also ps3 has steamworks so yeah I think we will see ps4/pc games more so than pc/xbox games. Like how it is now.

on topic:
And to think we already know gamers will get to use it for there on games!

PS3 doesn't "really" have Steam-works so that point is moot. One game called Portal 2 which DLC hasn't been rampant on for the PS3.

Nice Gabe...now just get started on Half Life Ep3 so we can see a 2015 release date :)

I am surprised how well Half Life 2 has aged. Released in 2004 (last gen) still think it looks better than most games that are just releasing now.

Agreed. That's art direction for you.

But there will never b a source 3 as written in history.

I'm more concerned about what might happen if i turned the valve on the back of that guy's head.
pandehz  +   625d ago
Thats what they should make their next game about

Somebody accidentally turns the valve and all hell breaks loose

To hell with ep3, ep1 and 2 were 30euro each and when combined offered less then half of the content we got from halflife 2 alone for 50, that episodic bs is almost as bad as the free to play model..
plus valve boasted that with ep content, we would get content more often... yeah right...

Wonder which game will break the '3' barricade. Portal? Left 4 Dead? Half Life 3? Episode 3?

For some reason Left 4 Dead 3 sounds most exciting..
pandehz  +   625d ago
HL3 should be the one.

Half Life 2 made source engine what it is and HL3 should represent it again

@yruudios unfair you get more bubbles than me qq

since they don't want to count to 3, the sequel to Half-Life 2 will be named Black Mesa 2

Yessssss! The best vertical sync engine in history!
Xristo  +   625d ago
Valve MUST introduce the Source 2 engine with a new Half-Life. It's their flagship. This is good news!
turgore  +   625d ago
I can only imagine... I was blown away by half life 2 back when it was released.

today is a good day to do what has to be done and live up to my family name!

As foretold by the Celtic prophecy of ages past. Or something

I could have a wank to this, if my ballsack had'nt exploded... gosh dont ya hate that?

"but haven't had the game to roll it out with yet"

Really? How about that Gordon Freeman game, that would do wonders on Source 2 or Better yet Day of Defeat 2 or Ricochet 2 or Alien Swarm 2 seeing how Valve can't count to 3!

Hurry up Next Gen Consoles so I can get my HL2 ep3! It's pretty obvious that's what we are waiting for!!

About damn time they release a new engine. It had really been holding back their games for a while.

I hope HL3 is the first game shown on the engine
