Valve's Doug Lombardi reiterated the firm's disinterest in developing for PlayStation 3 and Wii, and revealed that there were "new projects in the works" for Xbox 360.
They can keep them, these are the most lazy devs in the industry.
It has nothing to do with being lazy. It costs money to develop for the PS3. It's a lot easier and a lot less money to make games for PC and then bring the over to the 360. Besides, most of Valve's money comes from the PC market. They really don't have to release anything on consoles. Us console gamers sure appreciate it though.
They are pretty lazy though, they have enough money and enough resources to learn the programming code of a new platform they are just.... Lazy.
dont be a spoil brad. just becuz they dont wanna dev for the ps3..u crying uh?
why can they keep them ? your a ps3 owner but still youe saying vavle can keep a xbox exclusive it has on the works strange. @some 1 plays crytek is not making farcry 2 some time si think most sony "fans" on this site are just fake and have no idea of what really going on in the world of gaming .
Nothing advances technology like holding on to last generation.
Disinterest, more like incapability. Valve sucks.
Who cares!!! Oh no the PS3 doesnt get some crap ports from lazy american game developers which dont even have the intelligence to create a game for the ps3. And you all are wrong, they are lazy, creating games on the PC and 360 because they are "easier" is you saying they are lazy, easy is the lazy way out. Its expected of american developers all they can produce is crap anyways, only exception is IW's CoD4 but they wont release any trophies or XMB so yeah theyre lazy too! american game developers like valve are just afraid of a challenge, so what challenge and discipline yield great benefits, you think that their is an easy way to become a doctor or dentist etc?
So I guess this kinda confirms Half-Life 3 exclusive to 360. If it's going to come out on PC first though I'll probably get it on PC instead of 360.
wow if Left 4 Dead = lazy developers. then I want more lazy developers.
Tmac- Is Kojima lazy becuase he will not develop for the 360, No. He prefers the PS3, becuase of his relationship with Sony, like blu-ray, etc, but in someone elses eyes they could see him as lazy for not wanting to developing for the Wii or 360. Companies have there favorites. Nintendo had a simliar problem with devs, becuase of the complexity of developing for the N64, but I know the PS3 won't fail like the N64.

I'm cool with Insomniac. But thanks anyways.
Do you really think that Half Life 3 will be out before the xbox720 is released? HL2: Episode 3 probably will, but there's no chance of HL3 being on the 360. You'll be lucky if it's done within 5 years of Episode 3 (unless they do episodes again).
100 GOTY awards alone in the games that are in the orange box. yep. really lazy there Valve. stop making those great games. when will you whiny brats grow a brain and learn that the ps3 isnt the only gaming system in the world? so Valve doesnt have the money to program for it. that doesnt make them lazy. you all are butt hurt that Gabe doesnt like the ps3. cry some more.
as a ps3 owner i think valve makes great games but i went into it knowing full well that they were not gonna support the ps3 i don't remember them supporting the ps2 maybe the original half life but i could be wrong. ill just have to pony up the dough and get a 360 to play those games and gears 2
You really need to chill out, I really don't care for how you categorizes things with the "American" slant on it, it seems pretty clear to me that you have a blanket problem with Americans. You might want to get that fixed, before someone fixes it for you. I don't know where you are from, but you sound like someone from the medieval days. Chill out with the prejudice slant on your comments. I find it offensive. It really doesn't surprise me that you have been on this site only 53 days and you're already down to 2 bubbles.
Jesus, most people of this site are console fanbabies (luckally there are some console fans that dont wine and cry)... just look at this... these console fanbabies allways wining and crying because games don't go there way... you guys really need to grow up.
I really can't stand when someone comes onto a site specifically designed to promote fanboyism and the defending of one's preferred platform and then they whine and bawl about what is natural on a site like this. Grow up before i throw up. You are complaining and whining about people you say are whining. Do the math.
Valve has never made a bad or even mediocre game. All their releases have been Undeniable AAA, multiple GOTY winning releases. Its amazing that they can call a developer of valves calibre lazy just because they dont want to program for ps3. its like calling blizzard lazy... just doesnt make sense.
Wow, so many bitter Sony fanboys. I wonder what they would be saying if Valve only wanted to make console games for the PS3? I'm thinking it would be a different story then. Still, that's a Sony fanboy for you I guess, such hypocrites... All the people saying their lazy & don't make good games are just jealous. The fact is, Valve learned their lesson with the half life port, just as other devs will testify to how hard & expensive it is to make a decent PS3 games. I guess that explains a lot. The difference is, other devs have no option but to make games for the PS3, they need the money in an increasingly tough market, Valve doesn't, it has a large share in the PC games market already. On top of that it has morals, morals which say, we don;t need to spend months making games on a system that feels like the coding was an after thought. I really don;t blame them, and if your a fanboy then I guess you won't see past your own stupidity as to what valve are saying here. Good for Valve. :) Also, I would just like to add, why are people talking about console sales? The fact is, in the last month or two, Sony has released their only console selling game in the shape of metal gear solid. Let us not forget that the 360 still far out weighs the PS3 in terms of consoles sold, and in the next few months we WILL see the 360 sell more then the PS3. Why? because you tell me what the PS3 has to offer to someone thinking about buying a console, then tell me what the 360 has to offer. That's correct, the 360 has much more in terms of games and content on offer.
Master Chief is enough to do away with Sony, now Microsoft has AAA developer Valve backing them?
8D 360 FTW
Yet..three Halo games later, their *snicker* "perfect storm" from last year, and a simultaneous release of GTA and Sony's still here outselling the 360 by wider margins every month.
This is not a good time to compare console sales due to the way the economy has been. Later this year we will see how things shape up when we get out of this drought. MS still has a chance of turning this around in there favor and I don't think a few thousand consoles here and there is a reason to brag. Both consoles should have a good year and I don't see why it's so important to you guys who sell more then the other.
It's not about comparing consoles per se. It's about showing how idiotic comments like "so-and-so game on the 360 (usually Halo and Gears) will do away with Sony" have no merit when faced with truth that, despite these popular games, Sony's console isn't going anywhere. Also, I have no doubt that the US economy is playing a role in stagnant console sales in the US, however, to ignore the fact that Sony's progress in spite of this, including a near 2:1 margin over the 360 for June and a consistent over sale of tens of thousands of consoles per month only fuels these idiotic posts.
are you going to mention the release in MSG4 in that comment. I mean it only just the biggest game of the year for the PS3. MSG4 is to the PS3 what Halo3 is to the 360. So, let's not forget that that was a HUGE part of the june sells that you so proudly brag about. However rightfully so. Just don't want you to overly simplify it. Your post mentions "idiotic post" yet, it carries a bit of brash(adj.) flavor with it as well.
You don't really think MGS 4 is to Sony as Halo 3 is to MS do you? There is no way in hell MGS 4 is selling over 8 million copies. It won't even sell half of that on the PS3. If that's what Sony is pinning their hopes on, then I wasted a sh!tload of money a PS3. (Thankfully, Sony aren't that stupid)
lol why are Sony fanboys so insane. PS3 doesnt have the games and developer support!!! So then when someones excited about Valve bringing Exlcusive games to the 360 you get 16 disagree's??!? Wow what crap. Sony fanboys, KNOW YOUR ROLE. You cant contorl everything just because Xbox 360 gets all the developer support and PS3 has none. How lame.
I think what kingme was speaking of is, the title itself, and not necessarily the sells. If you look at the PS3 thus far, MSG4 does appear to be its most coveted title. (At least it is to me) I think PS3 fans, although they love their console, they are also more dedicated to specific genres, whereas 360 fans individually appear to like more different genres; which equated to the 360 fan buying more titles weekly. PS3 fans seem to wait for that specific title to come out (the genre they are into)before buying it. Once again, just my view on it. I could be wrong.
It's not like Valve's last game was highly rated or anything
U mean The Orange Box? an the little game called PORTAL?
Good luck surviving in the game industry. After all the PC and 360 are the two most pirated game platforms currently. Good choice valve!
good point fanboi! PC gamers are the reason that the videogame industry is so pirated and in cahoots! Not because of us PS3 owners we respect the videogame industry by actually purchasing games!
torrents keep me happy.
god bless piratebay and clonecd
lol! good luck pirating Valve games for PC!
I thought not LOL. GL pirating valve games buddy
He doesn't care about anything on PS3..not even his own bloody product: http://orangeboxpetition.co...
But this seem console racist.(I say this becasue both are Japanese company that all) Disinterest? Wii and Ps3 that impossible.
Unfortunately you are bud! LOL I thought the same thing
I am, how?
while sony keeps promising games for you, and not delivering,cancelling or delaying these so called promised games to the year 2020, we(xbox 360 owners) get real games from developers. eight days - cancelled home - triple delayed gt5-delayed to atleast 2010 bioshock- 1 year after 360 version mgs4 - movie bioshock 2 - guessing exclusive to xbox 360 for atleast 1 year god of war 3 - only teaser trailer (no gameplay) , after 2-3 years of ps3 launch mag- only teaser , probably 2011 release or cancel later final fantasy 13 - same day release in u.s. and europe(oh my god , no one saw that coming, FINAL FANTASY 13 AND VERSES) ........... and the list goes on , and on , and on................ p.s. i also have a ps3 , but collecting the dust
Don't make things up. Bioshock 2 exclusive for one year. Yeah right. Also it seem like you are fanboy for 360. Doesn't matter if u have both consoles. U favor 360 over Ps3. Lol @ below very true
Weird I could have sworn I was in the GamerZone. :\
It does not bother me, valve to me is nothing. I've never bother with their game in the past, so why should i care now.
Then why are u here?
because like you he has the right to say his opinion
why bother stating your opinion if you've got nothing good to say about it?
Valve is one of the most talented developers in the industry. The Source Engine can still keep up the newer engines of today. It is funny how people can hate them just because they have a bizarre emotional attachment to a piece of plastic. Just buy it on PC like I always here people who don't have 360 claim that they will do. Then go ahead and buy the PC version and get over it. Why should Valve have to learn the architecture of the PS3 when it will be forgotten after the PS3 is gone. It will never be used for PC game development and that is Valve's main focus.
Why bother creating it when the Xbox 360 will be forgotten sooner or later? Why does anyone bother learning new programming? Why do people learn? Why bother evolving and bettering yourself? You gotta whole lotta fail livin' in your brain. They're lazy and they're obviously choosing sides because of the way the company operates.
bloodmask speaks the truth. Just buy the game for the p.c. most of their games don't require a high end p.c.
you dont even have to buy it, there are many ways to get pc games for free.
its old and really good, so an average computer will run half life decent
Bloodmask i do believe you are talking firmly out of your a$$. Source engine keep up with newer engines, don't make me laugh any harder please. It's evolved, but nowhere near enough to contend with games today. I've played all the source engine games and while they are fun, they aint that good, best game valve released was hl1. Nothing has been as good as that from valve. hl2, and the episodes were at best average. I'm a pc fan more then a ps3 fan. But i do smell bs when any valve employee talks. You don't even need a high range pc to run their games. Any of them. Truthfully i hope sony shuns at product they produce for ps3, unless it gets the attention it needs. Piss poor ports don't help sales. and when ps3 is leading xbox360, and that'll be soon what are valve gonna do then.Play beyond? Or just develop for pc, because atm piracy is so rife with pc games, and it's getting worse. by 2010 everyone in the uk alone will be able to get 100mbps broadband.lol It'll be, i'll have that game, that game and i'll d/l that game 2morrow. Kinda like GRID for pc, you can d/l it and play online and check your stats if you want, kinda silly, and hurting sales badly.
wow Tmac. ive seen your posts before and i must say this is the first time ive seen you act like an idiot. i know you are not. PC and 360 are similar tech. you know that. and lazy. haha. right. over 100 GOTY awards alone with the games included in the orange box. you show me another developer that has that many GOTY awards that doesnt own a console. so by your logic Blizzard must be lazy too. no SC2 coming to consoles. D3 more than likely isnt hitting consoles. start up the hate wagon! Blizzard must suck because they dont develop for ps3! oh wait. nevermind. ::smacks forehead:: gabe said he hated the ps3. thats why everyone here dogs Valve. poor babies. cry some more.
Stop telling of how many "GOTY Awards" they've received, tell me this my friend, how many of those game of the year awards are from NON-AMERICAN websites/reviewers.
You lame PS3 fanboys are out of your delusional minds. Seriouslg et a life and go play the games you dont have. So annoying. PS3 is garbage and everyone knows and has known it. Get over and stop ruining EVERY 360 thread. You guys attack EVERYONE.
Portal 2 360 console exclusive? We are already getting Protal: Still Alive. Man, Portal 2 would be excellent along with the new Half-Life EP.
Protal: Still Alive will be great. I still haven't finish The Orange Box. There is tones of games on the xbox360 I love my XBOX360.....&FFXIII.
Yeah.. about Final Fantasy.. you're gonna be waiting awhile.
Japan gets it first then US and Europe get it at the same time on both consoles per SE.
Good news from Valve. They're a great company. @Tmac Xbox Users waiting for FFXIII have plenty of JRPG's to play while they wait, Many from Square Enix themselves.
The 360 has all the good games.
F&%k Valve!!!!! Party on people there is nothing to see here!!!
They only like working with typical PC programming. As everyone knows the 360 uses the same tools as with PC development which makes it extremely easy to develop for.
I hate when people here diss good developers just because their games are not coming to their favorite console..Valve is a great ..end
What has Valve done for me nothing if they choose to develop for the PC and 180 continue but dont make excuses for not making a PS3 version, they know they want a piece of Sony's gaming market share but they can't develop a game for the system instead we get a half baked EA UK version Im F&%kin upset I paid for that game. All i'm saying is stop making excuses and step your game up or shut up............................ .........
the reviews are good and if they say lag is a major factor and also unplayable then dont get it, rent it first
