Aeropause has received a letter from Mike Seedon on Orange Box PS3. Hit the jump to read through this well written text.
It's pretty long, but it really is worth the read.
I think Valve clearly showed its position towards (Orange Box) PS3..they don't care..
Quality, mature letter.
I actually took the time to read that. And he is right, about valves, and EA trying to make a quick buck
I cant read the letter due 2 being at work, but i just got this game the other day for my ps3. i havent played it much but it seems ok so far. im going to enjoy it at the least as i have never played a half life game before.
Because it's really worth it. It's nice to see such quality letters nowadays...especially due to those silly "fanboys" and "console wars"
I played the game too. Found nothing beyond the controls of the boat to complain about. The boat seemed to only want to turn to the right, but only when I wasn't moving forward. Other than that there was nothing that made me wish I hadn't bought the game (except that it was so damn short).
There are multiple issues that should have been patched but haven't.
There are 3 companys I don't like 1. Microsoft 2. Valve 3. EA Valve seem to dislike change and they should watch this. If you can watch it for the 10 minutes you can see how valve fit in to this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Valve= Hem and the rest will fall into place.
1. Sony 2. Hitler 3. Anchovy
Let's make this more positive 3 Things I like 1. Reliability 2. Value 3. God of War =)
1. Fanboyism 2. Ignorance 3. lists
Here's a funny link about working for microsoft http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Then you should really proofread your "mature" letters, as by the time I caught my sixth "i", I was done with any sort of belief that this was not some rant about how blah blah blah.
so why exactly did the ps3 version suck ass , and the 360 version was perfect 60 frames? cause it takes alot longer to develop for ps3. blame sony for making the ps3 so hard to develop for and not the developers with limited time and budget.
It's new technology.
VALVe is to blame. Gabe stated all along that the time and effort needed to program for PS3 was not worth it at the time (no middleware, crap support from Sony, small install base, etc.) But when EA signed on as publisher, THEY made the decision to port Orange Box to PS3.
ive been saying that ever since the hate for Valve started on this site. no one listens, because anything against their lil black box gets instant hate. no use slugg. hell i even got banned from the Gamer Zone for calling them whiners and brats. you are wasting your breath.
but no one wants to listen. Just let it go already people. The game is old, it got a crap port by EA. End of the story. Move on. It's just ONE game. It is playable as I played it on a friend PS3.
valve have disgraced the video game industry, do you see any other publisher or devs doing this crap? no you dont. like the guy said, it isnt the PS3's fault, its valves/EA's
EA/VALVE were pretty damn lazy with The Orange Box, it's a fantastic game on a good PC, where I think if It had stayed it would have saved a lot of hassle for everyone. Source is seriously outdated, the fact I heard the 360 version of the orange box was running 95-98% of the 360's full power is bullshit. I'd stick to playing Valve games on the PC, where they truly shine!
# Comment by Power of Green — July 28, 2008 @ 7:56 pm Ok, I’m going to resume the letter for you droids : BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WW lol please if you want to play a real version of the game that surpases Jesus just play the 360 version and burn that piece of black crap
I don't like the 360 But I don't mind MS much. As for this game Treat it like any other game, if its broken then don't buy it and play somthing else.There is no reason to get upset over it.
People hate MS but hey, it's just a group of people living the American Dream. MS was started in a garage, for christ's sake. You can't tell me you aren't somewhat envious of them. If you could do it, you would, and your company would probably be in the same position MS is in. I don't see why people hate MS. Bill Gates gives millions of dollars to charity, more than a lot of corporations. As for Valve, their games consistantly rank among the highest rated PC games ever. Half Life is f#cking amazing. It is truly a work of art. Valve is a relatively small studio. I can see where they want to focus on PC and 360. Dont' hate them because they don't want to develop for PS3. I don't hate Naughty Dog or NCSoft for developing for PS3
the xbots blame the PS3 for being a pice of crap but in reality its that fat ass Gabe F***ing Newell's, Valve's, and EA's fault. The 360 version of the Orange box is just slightly better then the PS3 version, but still a pice of crap compaired to the PC version.
and all fanboys alike, never cease to amaze me. This is a great letter or whatever because its pro Ps3? Give me a break. This is just another fanboy trying to get some attention. If you don't want EA games or games made by valve then make it clear by not buying the game for the PS3. People buy the game for the PS3, and then what, complain? I am sure EA or valve cares. These companies, MSFT, Sony, or Nintendo, don't care about you. They never will. They all want to make money. 2500 people crying about a game isn't going to do anything when the game sells half a million copies. Please stop thinking that any of these companies actually care about you more than selling the product to you, because they don't. They are all businesses and they want to make money, they don't want to make friends, just money. I know you think, "but they released this new game and supported it" yeah so people will buy the next or pay for the next episode, not because they give a crap about any of us. None of these companies care, they just want you to buy.
May I start with WAHHH fvcking WAhhhh Wahhhhh!!! Petitions? [email protected] you are ......O.K.!!! 2500 petitions? Yeah,that'll make a dent! Lame @ss Sony buttlickers and,Sony itself through these websites....... at it again. Here's the deal, IT TAKES WAYYYYY too long to get results out of the ps3 and the gimped cell tech that's in the POS3....O.K. Sony knows it,and in denial are the so called DROIDS (along with anti American Microsoft scum). Got it? Devs are not lazy.....O.K..........they're being business smart and practical. Everyone has bills to pay,and the Ps3's main focus was designed around BLU RAY......gaming was a second thought,movie format 1st! From what I understand,Sony had to alter their original Ps3 plans just to compete with the 360......and still it was a feeble attempt. Sony is living on Blu Ray and name brand PERIOD! Well this is pretty weak. Look at the multiplats.........OUCH....... ....just like Orange box. 360 pretty much outclasses the PS3 on a whole........regardless of how......................they' re doing it. YOU DON'T SEE 360 OWNERS EVER MAKING PETITIONS!!!!!! WHY?. Because we're not women like Sony fanboys or Sony corp. itself! Grow up Sony girls, and get one of the new Jasper model 360s.....here's a secret......they don't RROD. Yes yes........just jump in and quit being d1ckheads and hard headed foreigners.......basically... .fools.
He really nailed it here! "If Valve wanted its port to be a golden one, they would have handed the job to Sony’s first-party developers, such as the folks at Naughty Dog" "Refusing to develop on other systems because they feel they’re a pain in the arse, personally that’s what i call laziness. Investing in the CELL is more than just pain, but when you do dedicate time and get familiar with the system, the final result will only be crystal. Just have a look at Metal Gear Solid 4…and well, let’s be honest here, MGS4 is only scratching the surface of what the PS3 can achieve"
Ea has deadlines and budgets and the fact that the cell is a pain to program doesn't help. I just hope sony makes there next one easier to work on.
Its all about STEAM...they want everyone, and I mean everyone on STEAM, so they can control the entirety of the cash flow. They can't on the consoles, so maybe if they release HORRIBLE BUGGY products to the consoles, they can convince you to come to the PC and spend your money on STEAM!! They have a HUGE vested interest in the PC now with STEAM, don't forget that. I will NEVER expect a good product from them on the consoles EVER, simply because of STEAM!!
