There has been an idiotic level of press recently regarding some of the statements that Gabe Newell had made over a year ago regarding the PS3. Yes, in a Game Informer article he called the PS3 a "waste of time," and suggested that "they should just cancel it and do a 'do over,'" as well as speaking about "stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it."
He is saying in a less politically correct and tactful fashion what other developers were thinking a mumbling. Remember, that when it first came out there were other complaints of the PS3's difficult architecture. Since then, it seems that the game developers have started to figure it out and even praise it.
