If Half-Life 3 Comes, It Won't Be SteamOS Exclusive

IGN:Valve has confirmed that it won’t be making SteamOS exclusives, so if Half-Life 3 comes, you won’t need a Steam Machine to play it. (Industry, Valve)

Valve,would never lock out fans of their franchises by having their games be exclusive to Steam Machines.

Because Valve is smart enough to realise if they did their main consumer, being as fickle as we are, would just shove two fingers up at them and become Valve haters/ do things for free instead of using their service (let's be honest that would happen). If we were more civilised then they would but sadly we (as the collective) are quite a volatile group

I actually quite like the look of Steam Boxes. That said I am glad they would not force me to buy one for HL3.

Valve have sense.It be would sad to make it exclusive to one platform, HL is one of them games everyone needs to enjoy.

Although i think there will be exclusives for the SteamBox by other companies.

read the full article, they say they want their games (and all games) on as many platforms as possible

Very good news! Will happily purchase on PS4.

PS4/PC MP crossplay :P

It was done with Portal 2 so I can't see why they wont do it again.

lol, why so many dislikes?

Pc fanatics dont want hl to come to consoles
PlayStation_4  +   663d ago
Haha... One of the most overrated games of all time in my opinion. Wouldnt be *too* bothered if it didn't come to console, but if it didn't I would just have to but it on PC

I think this goes without saying.. that would be a dumb move to all it's loyal PC fans.

Though i wonder how much longer it will be before a game is announced with Source 2.. it's been in development for 3 years now. Maybe next year will be our lucky year!

Now that will be a nice time to build a new rig.

Well that's ....something. IF we ever resolve the cliffhanger we left you with two generations ago we will do it nicely. Half-life 2 is still my favourite game of all time but at this point I just can't muster the enthusiasm for Half-life 3. When I think of it I just feel angry about how long they left us waiting and how cute they think they're being by keeping us completely in the dark.

It might be a PC/Mac/Linux exclusive though.

It begs the question.

Whats the point of the steam box?
PlayStation_4  +   663d ago
Considering you can get a wireless hdmi transmitter for you PC, there is none. Likely trying to get the uninformed to get one

While it's good that Valve doesn't want to fence off gamers from playing Half-Life 3, they'll need some big incentive for people to care about the SteamOS right now.

That means giving SteamOS users something that the other consoles can't provide, whether it's a game or a feature.
