The new issue of the Official Playstation Magazine has Borderlands developer Gearbox's president Randy Pitchford letting Valve have it about their stubbornness about PS3 development, or lack thereof. Pitchford didn't pull any punches here, saying that Valve's position is "weird" (before praising the system as a challenge that reminds them why they are game developers), and calling Doug Lombardi and Gabe Newell fanboys that were making fanboyish comments against the PS3. He also said that the PS3 version of the Orange Box had better visuals. The biggest wound that Pitchford made, though, was saying why Valve didn't update the PS3 Orange Box: "You've supported that, you've added all this content to Team Fortress 2, and you've left us hanging. It's hard to accept that genuinely, because I know the business, I know you guys make half the money on the PS3 version because you've got other fingers in the pie, and other developers getting a cut. It benefits you if nobody buys that, and only buys the PC version, because you make the most money. There's this underlying sleaziness."
Before the usual Valve fanboys come in and try to defend Valve's position on the PS3 as opposed to the PC and 360 (wouldn't that make them 360 and PC fanboys, in that case?), let's just tell you that Gearbox is completely right on all levels, and Valve would do good to listen to Gearbox, because they are the best thing to have happened to Valve in a while.
