A key Valve executive who helps manage the Steam business has departed from the company, according to a new report.
Now this is strange
no one saw it coming. really sad
Looks like Gabe has put some amount of money into Steam boxes (all the different variations) and is now worried he may not make the money back. Wonder how much capital has been invested in regards to R&D costs and manufacturing. I know it's not entirely financed by Valve, but it must be part financed by them. No company would create hardware for nothing without a partnership or some form of backing from a software provider.
What is going on? Sure job losses aren't really news, as they happen daily. But it seems something is about to kick off at Valve (or already has).
Wow some crazy stuff is happening at Valve.
and so it begins.
1: Y2K 2: December 21st, 2012 3?! ....
Its an old joke but it fits the situation... We don't count to 3.
What the hell is going on with them? I don't like this. It's like watching a beloved childhood pet go senile and start biting people for no reason. Let's just hope all these layoffs are due to the fact that Half life 3 just went gold and its so good half the employees of the company went insane playing it.
"It's like watching a beloved childhood pet go senile and start biting people for no reason." And the winner of 'best analogy' goes to....
you is good with the words
I blame the Steam Box and Valve leaving Half Life for dead.
Sony should buy Valve.
valve should buy sony
other way around..
Man... It'd be fantastic is Valve bought Sony.
Sony should buy Valve? Yeah, a company currently selling assets to stay afloat should buy a company with some kind of major problem or at least a major talent drain.
Either whatever they were working on is complete thus no extra people needed OR projects have been canned and extra people are let go.
If this was a Sony dev lol this article would have more than 100 comments lol and ppl calling doom and gloom lol I love it!!!!!!
What's goin on at valve?
