Gabe Newell on piracy and Steam’s success in Russia

We’ve already covered Valve co-founder Gabe Newell’s thoughts on Team Fortress 2’s lucrative decision to go free-to-play, but during the same talk Newell also spoke a little bit about the highly lucrative Russian games market. It seems that the country – which is notorious for high levels of piracy – is actually something of a nest (headcrab) egg for Valve.

The story is too old to be commented.
