Valve is excited to be finally working on PlayStation 3 with Portal 2 - and, despite a patchy history with Sony's system, has told CVG it has a host of devs familiar with the console in its ranks.
Oh really. Where did the expertise come from if I may ask? :p
Prolly stuck on Gabe Newells rolls.
I know ur joking, but you should show some respect. Gabe Newell's the man behind Half Life 1/2...you know the one of the best games ever created. @njr- Yeah, more proof that N4G is dominated by 12 year olds and immature 20 somethings that have no appreciation for this industry. If you have to constantly make fun of someones weight to discredit them, then you must have PLENTY of your own demons to work out...what better place than a site where everyones anoynomous right? I bet my house that none of you would make a fat joke to Gabe Newell's face. George Sears..do you make games? Have I heard of any? How many copies have they sold? Have they gotten any awards or honorable recognition from the media?
Another fat joke, there goes episode 3...
What does my comment have to do with Gabes success? I think you are trying to go a bit to poetic here. If you take life to seriously it's just going to grab you by the balls, hard.
"half life 1/2 are poo" ????? You sir(probably a kid; poo??) are mistaken and i'm gonna disagree with you.
What the hell happened here? Gabe Newell is fat. He is extremely overweight. That isn't respectable. Yes, he has been involved in the creation of a few great games and an awesome PC service. That means you should respect his creativity. But he is still fat. You think it's immature to comment about a person's weight? I think it's irresponsible to allow yourself to gain that much weight. It doesn't matter how many games you've made or how many copies you've sold. Being fat is being fat. If you don't like people calling you fat, or Gabe Newell fat in this case, stop being fat. It's going to kill you in a not so peaceful way. On topic: I hope they do a good job with the game. I doubt I'll be buying it on PS3 though. Certain games are probably best played on PC and this will be one of those games.
They have some people with PS3 knowledge in their dev team. Or maybe they've been practicing for a little while before announcing anything.
well said deadreckoning666 well said. "N4G is dominated by 12 year olds and immature 20 somethings that have no appreciation for this industry" you are 110% correct,there a bunch of 12 year old babies who don't know nothing and the ps3/360 is there first console.stupid whinny little brats who have no respect for any one cause its the "internet" grow up or GTFO! @Biggest you are some peace of work by your logic any one who is fat deserves to be picked on ? wtf kind of bull shit is that...maybe fat people should pick you you for being a tooth pick living in your moms basement with no life.. "If you don't like people calling you fat, or Gabe Newell fat in this case, stop being fat" How the fuck dose some one just "stop being fat" you idiot,it doesn't happen over night but judging by your user name,your probably the Biggest one on this site,crying cause you cant get away from your damn computer to "stop being fat".get a life idiot.Every one deserves respect,but not idiots like you.
Im willing to bet you dont have a six pack yourself. Being overweight is a serious psychological issue for many people, otherwise they would get right up with tons of willpower and lose it all in no time. Youre an ignorant kid i bet, and know nothing about the subject, and it shows. Being overweight has nothing to do with creativity and intelligence, and does not hamper the ability to make a great game.
I would say the expertise came from Sony. Doubtless they have hired new people but with the Sony deal I would say there is a very good chance they have received an unusual amount help from SCEA.
I'll take that bet tell me when I can see him in person here in NYC . BTW does your mom knows you're betting the house? . Valve is a good developers team and for their sake I hope they're ready to work on the PS3 an show us gamers something of higher quality than what we seen so far graphics wise on the 360, gameplay wise they've nothing to worry about.
I really like gabe, have gone from hating him and making fat jokes to really being quite fond of him, ok so i'm a bit fickle....also i played the ps3 version of half life 2 and loved it.
ZING! But really, they can talk about it all they want. All that matters is: can they prove it with the product?
read the article, the have some of dev who worked on other ps3 games
Naughty Dog mostly I believe
Valve picked up a couple of former Naughty Dogs. http://playstationlifestyle...
PS3 expertise. Ok kool, finally. So give us L4D 1-2 on a single blu-ray disc for 45$ and we have a deal.
See, this is what I don't understand. If you can afford a PS3, how do you not have a PC or even an Xbox 360? You would have played these games already and not have worried whether they came to ps3 or not. Same applies to Mass Effect series.
but I dont play any games I can get on a console because just playing on consoles are much much better in my opinion and 360 is a piece of crap that any consumer with some sense knows its not a good investment. Also even with the announcements of me2 coming to ps3 and valve working on the ps3 I wouldnt buy either games since my money has already been put aside for games like socom/kz3/res3/ff13v/twisted metal and w/e other suprises sony has in store for me.
lol maybe one day you can have L4D1-2 on PS3, but till then, I highly suggest you play them on PC if you have a PC capable or running those games. They don't need a powerful PC to be played, but are better for PC since there is waaaaaaay more content on the internet than on LIVE or PSN.
will be most likely be ported over probably will all the stuff that the pc got just wait till ea gives a little nudge to valve just as they did with bioware valve will see it a way to expand there market and in return net much more money
Answer: because a PS3, a 360, AND a gaming PC costs more than just a PS3. Your reasoning makes no sense. That's like saying "you own a Honda Accord, so why can't you also afford a Mustang?". It's called "money". I have all 3 but I can easily see why a person might only opt for one.
When was it socially unaccaptable to be as fat as Gabe? Dont forget the Skinny dudes too. Clearly he doesnt give a f about his weight so I don't see why the hell you guy's have to say sh*t. Ohh yeah I don't like half life It bores me.
i wonder if he is going to lose the weight because the ps3 does everything right, even weight loss???
I think fat people are a disgusting strain on the health system personally. It is irresponsible and should be taxed to care so little about your own health... Where I'm from tax payers have to pay for that triple heart bi-pass, so fuck him.
in a world plagued by overpopulation,starvation and OVERCONSUMPTION I think it is completely irresponsible to think it is your right to be severely obese. We all have to take responsibility for this planet and the ones stuffing their face 24 hrs a day because they have "issues" need to get over it and get with the program.
I actually agree. Only in America do you see grossly obese people and "eating disorders". If I can quit smoking after 16 years, a habit that's said to be harder to quit than heroin, then somebody can put a g-damn cheeseburger down. Why don't obese people ever gorge themselves on fruit, why is it always donuts, doritos and greazy slimy pizza?
*sad admission pending* Australia is now officially the fattest country on the planet. It correlates to our higher standard of living. Gabe earns a lot of money, he can afford to eat well. He has lots a lot of weight recently, like was said above it is a psychological problem one often created by stress, I imagine running THE largest independent developer a digital distribution service in the world would create a $#!+ load of stress...who are we to judge a persons coping mechanism in a position we could not possibly empathize with.
If Gabe worked out, he could keep "over consuming" and he'd be ripped. Would you still have a problem with it, then? Besides, it's not food that anyone else would consume. Our nation disposes of mass quantities of uneaten food. But yes, the man needs to go on a diet...for his own good.
Gabe Fat jokes in this comment thread: 15 Years left until Half-Life 3: 347 Years added: 1.25
good you guys have got people who know there way around a ps3 now , bring on l4d1 and 2 on 1 blu ray disc . thanks
They really are singing a different tune lately.
The potential to make more money really helps open up your mind.
"The potential to make more money really helps open up your mind." Says Mr. Cash lol Dr. Money has a similar opinion, or so I've heard.
Valve makes more than 500 million dollars a year. As a digital distributor and independent developer they have minimal upkeep costs...they make more money than ANY other developer and more than any other publisher save activision and EA..you are deluded if you think they are in need of money. They also make more money on each PC version of a game sold on steam than they would on 5 copies of a console game at retail...and that is even with the cheaper PC game. But by all means, continue to dance in your tutu, who am I to say you look like a fag...
What is your point? You think once you make 500 mil a year there is no need to make more? Lets see $500,000,000.00 or 700,000,000.00? Seriously I feel dumber for having read your comment.
Kaz Fed Gabe with some burgers...
we shall see
Everyone talks about the PS3's 2011 line up, but fail to mention the "best version of Portal 2 on consoles" per Gabe Newell.
There's just so much greatness happening with the PS3 these days man. It's getting tough to remember it all.
we are still in shock that it's finally coming.
Valve are like rats that leave a sinking ship. And I'm not talking about PC. It's cool though that they are a PS3 dev now.
lol you must be oblivious to how bad xbox 360 has been stomping ps3 every since 360 slim was released.
You must be oblivious to that 10 mil gap that's almost closed. 2 months doing well in america is nothing new, because ww sony evens it out or outsells the 360.
Stomping? Lol Here in the Americas maybe by nothing. Do it worldwide kid, see if you sing the same tune. GTFO if youre not going to speak facts.
PS3 is stomping 360 worldwide. Europe is PS3 territory and so is Asia. Heck only JAPAN is enough to beat the 360's American lead. Check it out yourself http://n4g.com/news/587092/... EU is going to go crazy when they drop GT5 later this year. It's gona move some serious number of units in EU alone!!! That remaining 4-5 million gap is going to shrink so fast, M$ wouldn't know what hit them! KINECT is bound to fail. Yeah, the multi-million M$ marketing is gona work but KINECT won't last long without impressive software support and so far, Kinect's software lineup looks pathetic.
you are so ignorant, my god..... both left 4 deads on xbox 360 alone have sold around 5 and half million copies, so you are very mistaken
hard for them to ignore ps3 now especially with a 38 mill userbase and sony dont have huge barriers for psn so steamworks is allowed and stuff
ps3 domination on n4g yay. halo reach what? thats right the ps3 is where its at and has been at since 2008.
I'll play it when i believe it!
Boy Gabe looks like the idiot he really is
Gabe's a genius. Valve as a whole is genius. How do you think he looks like an idiot, anyways?
How many times has Gabe public ally dissed the PS3..Instead of taking the high road like a Ted Price a real professional who knows how to not bash the competition.. Now Valve wants to support the PS3 after Gabe routinely bashed it... Thats how he comes across as an idiot
at E3 2010. & it was truly funny. Plus, it was HIM there. Not some Valve rep. Gabe was there, saying yeaaaaaaahhhhh... PS3. Not so bad. That takes balls. He also said that Valve is making the PS3 version of Portal 2 better than the 360 version. What more do you want? He's still a goddamn genius. He's opinionated, and since his opinions are considered news - especially to fanboys either praising the 360, hating on the PS3, or for PS3 fanboys to band together in hatred against Gabe - it's really not his fault. I don't mind someone not being politically correct, and caring about a company's feelings. It's different.
no shitty ports.
Yeah, it took a lot of balls to do what Gabe did at E3. Not to just admit he was wrong backstage or have Sony show a trailer, to actually come out on stage, acknowledge what he had said and joke about it is a hell of a step and to then call the PS3 version the best on consoles? I don't know how anyone can't respect the man anyway considering what Valve have been behind in the past anyway, but even the most hardened PS3 Fanboys must at least give him the benefit of the doubt there.
How is Gabe courageous just because he admitted he acted like a moron? Even HE admitted he acted like a tool and comes across as an idiot. I understand Valve has some serious fans, but I don't see MW fans defending Bobby Kotick. And besides, Valve isn't exactly a revolutionary developer. Every single game they make is just some form of the Source engine, plus a new, simple gimmick. Don't get me wrong- it works out well and gets some pretty good games out there, but the Half-Life games (with 2 and up) are built around the gravity-gun gimmick, the Portal game(s?) are built around the portal gun gimmick, Counter-Strike is built around the multiplayer gimmick, and Left 4 Dead is built around the co-op gimmick. Like I said- all of them are really good, fun games, but there's nothing revolutionary. It's like giving Mario a different power-up, throwing him in a new setting, and printing money off of it.
Why in the world would anyone defend someone like Bobby Kotick? Did he ever stand up in front of an audience full of gamers to apologize and admit his statements wre BS? Your argument is full of fail, seriously. First of all, about the Valve games. Why fix what is not broken? The Source engine is amazing, it's used in their games because it's optimized, and they can keep upgrading it as much as they want. Second of all, do you know what a gimmick is? seriously. It's something that seems like a special feature, but is irrelevant to the overall game. Portal Gun gimmick? wow, are stupid or what? The Portal Gun is what makes the game. You know... Portal?... CS built around the multiplayer gimmick? The main feature IS multiplayer... The gravity gun... you seriously do not consider the gravity gun revolutionary? Left4Dead... Co-op was the basis of Left4Dead, it's not a special feature for the sake of having a special feature. It's 85% of the games' fun factor. Wow, you are on my list for Top Failures, right there beside Bobby Ko"dick"
Gabe admitted his mistakes and that's fine with me. I now want to see what his team can do with the PS3. His weight is his own business. It didn't get in the way of him working on games.
good,we dont want a orange box situation again now do we
We will see what kind of expertise they have when their games come out for PS3. Will they match up to PS3 first party games?
There's singing it, and then there's bringing it...
Yeah, its going to have to be either error free, near error free or at least have fewer problems than the 360 version.
bring left for dead then
Bring on Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 to the PS3 Valve :)
Those Left 4 Dead games aren't really any good. Bring on episode three motherfuckers. You just going to leave Me, Gordan, and Alex hanging like that?
is amazingly fun, especially with friends. Not saying I don't want episode 3, but you shouldn't diss L4D.
I highly agree.
I agree, left 4 dead 1 and 2 are much better played with friends
