I think they should expand their services on consoles. They should also look to invest in features like OnLive. It's going to be important in the future.

I have to disagree. Valve should not make a console because with a console comes great responsibility such as 1st party developers, online servers, warranty, shipping, etc etc. Not only this but Valve's own games will because exclusive to their console and people will miss out.

They are already making millions with steam and Gabe is the richest person in the video game industry he doesn't need any more money haha.

Fun fact: Write to Gabe via email and he will answer.

Fun fact: He didn't say they should MAKE a console.

Valve don't need to make a console, their Steam service is already on the best platform around, the PC.

I think Valve has a great opportunity for doing some great things on PS3. Sony is Microsofts nemesis, and I can only imagine that since MS has platforms both with the Xbox 360 and Game For Windows Live, which allows them to capture market share both in the console and PC market, that Sony might have plans for doing the same, and the only way I see Sony accessing the PC market is through Steam. I think it would be huge if Steam were able to sell some Sony exclusive games "exclusively" on Steam. There is alot of potential here. There are already games from Sony Online Entertainment on Steam, so they're already doing some business together anyway.

Increasing the PS3 libary would be a very smart move, There is a lot of games on Steam that would be very welcome on the PS3, And it would make them loads of money.

Agreed, I think the first one I think of is 'Super Meat Boy'. Also the Telltale games are already on there so if you could sync those like Portal 2..

Why not all the multi platform games like Call of Duty, Fifa and so on.

I hate having one bubble, I can never reply to anything I have said. I have been getting "well said" but no bubbles? The mods must just hate me.

I see valve expanding in the future especially Next Generation if they allow them to. I only see Sony doing this though and not Microsoft.

Your future detector is probably broken.

AdmiralSnake2547d ago

It might be but my troll detector is working just fine today though.

IMHO, Valve should stick to their software implementations. Make steam a third-party system that other game developers can pay a fee to use for putting their games on any platform and for handling multiplayer, chat, and updates.

Neither, just carry on making excellent and original games.
