Valve CEO Calls PS3 A 'Total Disaster' - Likes Wii

Gabe Newell, the co-founder and managing director of Valve, revealed his distaste for the PS3 in the latest issue of Game Informer magazine. He also reveals his love for the Wii.

"The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels, I think It's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted. I'd say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a "do over". Just say, "This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it". The happy story is the Wii. I'm betting that by Christmas of next year, the Wii has a larger installed base than the 360. Other people think I'm crazy. I really like everthing that Nintendo is doing.

If this guy has any saying in valve; there goes any chances of getting Half Life to the PS3 or any other of their games.

This is news biased or not! I didn`t say it, he did! He also picked the wii so why are you mad at the deliverer? You don`t say squat when Juevani, Kingboy, Ps3fan and achira post REAL HATE news on the 360!

Why dont you find some attacks instead of deffensive posts, you posted those comments in the wrong order and one of them is in response to a savage attack from another thread. Thats what you people do is lie and twist. Move along and have a nice day.

Its not that he had his opinion; it's the constant rabbid attacks just because opinions differ or folks saying something you don't want to hear much like what you did in the God of War thread.

As if the order they're posted in would somehow change the fact that they're senseless flames.

Why dont you find some attacks instead of deffensive posts, you posted those comments in the wrong order and one of them is in response to a savage attack from another thread.

If you can explain to me how those tasteless, immature responses constitute as defenses, believe me, I'm all ears. Especially considering that ridiculous PS2 comment was the first post. I'd love to hear how that's a defensive post. You're the type of person who's personally offended when a sports team you don't like wins a game, aren't you? Wouldn't surprise me.

"Its not that he had his opinion; it's the constant rabbid attacks just because opinions differ or folks saying something you don't want to hear much like what you did in the God of War thread."

As if you're in any position to be chastising someone for their attacks. As much as you slander people for their views, what news they post, console of choice etc, you've no right to talk.

Even if you were trying to be some advocate for individual opinions, slandering others in a similar or more brash way will get you nowhere, show at least SOME form of civility, as a post like this:

"You god dam Sony game gollums and your PS-Ring need to chill out and get some mental help"

will not make you look any better than those you are attempting to reach. Haven't you ever heard of the Golden Rule? Or at the very least two wrongs don't make a right? The vast majority of your responses only hold the potential to instigate more mud-slinging, simply because you retaliate with more immature garbage. You would do well to calm down and say what you need to say without the use of name-calling and trolling. By the way, for as much as you use the word rabid, you should probably learn how to spell it, as I've noticed many on this site take on your habit of spelling the word with two b's. R-A-B-I-D.

Since you have no bubbles left in the GoW post, I'll respond here:

"Do you even know what you're talking about. Why do you hardcore fans twist and make up your sub culture meanings of words all gamer means is: "G A M E R"(One who plays games) you guy's are sad and pathetic Sony game trollzz crying because i commented on Old school tech GOW 2 on PS2 and not PS3. lol."

I don't think my reference to the word gamer was completely out of text, but perhaps I should have said open-minded gamer. You can be a fan of a particular console and still be open-minded you know.

Also, you would call me a troll after trolling yourself? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black...So I suppose a nonsensical comment like yours at the beginning of that post wasn't trolling at all huh? Of course not, it was only the PS2 news section, so saying something stupid about the PS2 won't rile anybody up....right? Explain to me what kind of sens it makes to say that PS2 related information shouldn't be posted in a PS2 section? Would you go to a college sports event just to hiss and boo because it wasn't a professional league? I wouldn't be surprised.

Your incessant crying over PS fans "getting riled up" is a ridiculous point. All of your childish remarks in that post prove it, because YOU were the reason the majority of the bitterness was started there, and then you have the nerve to whine about it?

"I don't know what you are tying to say in that mixed up rant but the PS2 is hurting PS3 and this garbage hype of old school tech will be Sony's un-doing."

I must say, I am indeed surprised that you didn't understand my simple comment. Allow me to break it down for you.

Those examples I gave were to get through to you that just because a game isn't on a next-gen console, does not, by any stretch of the imagination make it a bad game. I was simply referencing old and recent games as a testament that a good game is timeless, regardless of era, platform, etc.

The lesson here? You're a hypocritical troll on these boards, but there's always time to change. Like I said, if you really want to defend the opinions of others, do it in a civil manner, as I guarantee you'll get through to people better if you don't slander them, regardless of what they may or may not have said to you. Should you still genuinely not understand, or choose not to understand with your proven thick skulled nature, then no matter, you'll grow up one day. Perhaps you can find comfort in the fact that you're not the only adolescent who thinks that they know everything, if nothing else.

How self righteous of you.

Two days from now, there's going to be the article with Gabe saying he was miss quoted. Blah blah blah and everything will be nice.

...and real news gets pushed off to page 2-3-4.

Whether you like it or not, when a CEO of a major game company says something this powerful against a console, it is certainly news.

specialguest3902d ago

that CEO sounds like he hates PS3 more than Microsoft does. he believes the PS3 is TOTAL crap in ALL levels and should just trash what they got and start over. hahahah damn!
