Videogame website Games-Freaks received a response directly from Valve's Gabe Newell, whom admits that 'PS3 development needs to be done in-house'. Gabe adds that 'it is going to take some time for us to spin up.'
I rather not trust a blogspot source
How many stories, especially leaks, have been revealed by blogs?
Valve can go jump in a lake.
u now think ps3 is profitable area. well i am not surprised.
I think many have moved on from TOB and when I thought that this is over, now this? whatever...I don't care anymore! Valve developed it and EA ported it! that's it and any game with this much problem, is simply unacceptable to begin with! It's not like I'm buying anything from valve but I got TOB as a present last year from my GF and she asked me whether I like it or not! what can I say? I just told her that it's fun but buggy making it less enjoyable and she felt guilty for giving it to me!
so did she do some f***ed up sh** to make up for it? If so The orange box may be the best game ever made ;)
I don't believe Gabe Newell wrote that response. Gabe Newell hatred for the PS3 and everything Sony burn hotter than the core a Blue Giant (a Ginat start that is hundreds of times larger than our Sun, and shine Blue)
What's so funny mate, i'd love to share that moment of laugh with you. Very recently, Valve admitted the PS3 success. I see no reason why this would be a fake. Actually, to be honest, i see STEAM being developed to the PS3 platform. The PS3 start was catastrophic, but finally it is showing that it is the future. And developers, such as Valve for example, have finally realized that.
their just dont this because they know ps3 sales are hot.if i was sony i would tell them no thanks.remember you said i'll hardware suck we need to rebuild it. their nervous
well obviously it wouldnt change his mind , just that the success of the ps3 make it unavoidable .
That is true. But Gabes love of money might burn hotter.
funny i thought his love was for anything that tastes delicious.
You see! If you buy Gabe Newell a few Doughnuts to eat he will do anything!!! ;-D I don't care less really. Valve can go Suck eggs...NO! NOT! YOU! Gabe!!!...Finish your Doughnuts 1st...er erm...oh...you...have...that was Quick!!!... ;) 'Gabe adds that 'it is going to take some time for us to EAT up.' ;-D
wow your pathetic
Says you with a young boy as your avatar ? Kinda creepy
You sound rather...jealous.
Then the real reason's because even gabe knows that PS3 games are selling just as well as 360 games. And all he thinks of after food is $$$$$$$ money.
@David McDougal Militant07 is actually a kid if you can't tell.He likes the 360 because he plays Eternal Sonata hence his avatar.He also happens to love playing Maplestory which baffles me since that game has no challenge. @Shroomy Kutaragi does not care for Newell or Valve.If he did,he would have said something.But he has no interest in playing Orange Box or anything like that and he never will,so he has no reason to be jealous of anything.
LOL ah well then it gets kinda hard 2 tell around here
...Someone said to Gabe(The New Face of PSN's Fat Princess) 'PS3 games are selling like Hot Cakes' ;-D His eyes lit up!!! CAAAAAAAAKES!!! ;-D @Steven Colbert ;) They always think i'm Jealous of games on the xBox 360??? I'm REALLY REALLY not!!! ;-D I have been a PlayStation Owner for over 11 years and i'm not interested in the xBox 360 or games for it at all. I'd rather play games made for PS3;) Even if someone gave me a xBox 360 i would eBay.com it faster than Gabe could eat PIES!!!(And thats super Fast!!!) ;-D It does nothing for me. PlayStation brand excites me!!! ;-P (+i have got a N64!!!So i can like other Consoles) ;)
you've ruined my breakfast with that Gabe Newell egg sucking joke! lol, bubbles for that
Danm, now the game will have to be worse so it can run on fonys hardware. Gangsta- FVCK sony.
Sorry to put you off your Lunch and Dinner to, but that's not the only thing he Likes to Suck on daliy!!! ;-D i.e Bill Gate$ 1" N00B!!! ;-D @I_am_a_gangsta Real Gangstas own a PS3! SONY's Gear is what they aim for. They don't buy Cheap crap!!! ;-D Unless they are Cr*p Gangstas!!! ;-D iiiiiiii4real;)
Sir_Ken_Kutaragi is a dumb muthafuka
The xbot Defense Force is in full swing today again I see.Then lets rumble bots
I mean by the success of the Orange Box, being one of the highest rated games ever, and TF2 being one of the must fun MP games in ages? Sure, Valve don't really care, they drown in money despite the long delays.
ugh these guys...
Could this be the forfeit for losing their match with SOE? /joke I hope Portal will appear on the PSN at some point.
lol bubbles for you
Yeah could have been a side bet. Maybe Gabe has to wear a Sony Home shirt to work one day too.
hell must have froze over and pigs are flying with angel wings rigght now, Gabe newell admitting that he and his team needs to develop for PS3 in house. to little too late but good for your fat ass, maybe now you can sweat and burn more calories on the PS3 than excercise because you certainly dont have the drive to do even that. LOL!!!
This really wouldn't be all that surprising. I mean take into account the PS3 sales figures, its doing quite well, and then take into account the issues with "The Orange Box" for the PS3 from EA(?) The problems with "The Orange Box" have really left Valve without much recourse. No one can really step up and fix the issues due to the way it was done. Say what you will about Gabe, but I get the distinct impression that he takes great pride in his work as he should. So seeing his company's IP look bad is just not sitting well with him. I think that if PS3 sales weren't what they are, then he would be more willing to sweep it under the carpet. The fact of the matter is that he, and any game dev for that matter, likes to see the product of their hard work succeed on as big a scale as possible. In this case the entire world. Especially since the PS3 is doing well everywhere and its success is not mainly in NA. Yeah, I know the 360 is doing well in various regions as well, but when you can damn near double your market penetration, you really need to go after it.
It can no longer be denied. Sure developers love to make a game for a 20 million install base (360), but with another 15 million install base (PS3), it's a clear decision to maximize profits. Now if we go back into time when the PS3 was only at 3-5 million install base, that's where we saw developers like Gabe saying "The PS3 is a waste of time"
Newell just won't do it.Its best to move on
If this is true (kind of doubt it), then I can remove Valve from my **** list and quit with the fat jokes!
Erm, isn't TF2 already out on the PS3...?
It is hard to tell from one little sentence and from a blog, mind you. But I assume this is about the mega 360 patch, new maps, new game modes and other DLC.
I wish someone would send this to Gabe aswell. "Even though your too stupid to figure out how to use the PS3 controller doesn't mean that nobody else can. Now develop left 4 dead to the PS3 while your at it too and make it flawless! PS: I Can't believe how long it takes for some people to figure out that multiplat game + huge hype = Incredible success."
Gabe Newell is the picture of gluttony.
and whilst your at it develop HalfLife 3 for PS3... :)
Acceptance.... ...or is it? Valve, you've admitted the PS3's success and are considering it (must be tired of all the backlash). The best thing about the PS3/Sony loyal: We're fair, and we're good at giving second chances (albeit us being skeptical. Just means you have to do one hell of a convincing speech, which could be good for you to put out the best damn game you can). However, fair or not, we ARE skeptical, and we're not that good at giving THIRD chances. Be serious about this and actually do GOOD at SUPPORTING such.
Its amazing how loud he is when he's got something nasty to say, and how quiet and soft spoken he can be when he's admitting he's wrong. This should have been said ages ago. Ignoring 15million people must have finally bit him on the ass.
Newell said that?? look at how the over-sized tables turn huh? slowly, but surely now do the L4D PS3 port yourself and stop being so lazy not that this blog seems particularly reliable, but then again- most leaks come from blogs and forums since the big sites are sworn to NDA's
Droids don't deserve this game.
Yeah i know we already got a working console dont wana spoil us now
SO TRUE. Gangsta-FVCK SONY.
I hope it flops and Valve loses a sh1tload of cash. They called the PS3 useless, now all of a sudden their inviting Sony to game challenges and are now trying to be buddy buddy with them now? PFFFT Screw Valve a.k.a Poop Shute. Keep your mediocrity on the PC and 360 please. I would never rent let alone purchase a Valve game EVER! BUT...BUT Teh PS3 is to hard to develope for. Valve U Fuggin Idiots. HAHAHAHAHAHA
This is terrible logic. Let them admit their mistakes and fix them. Its not like Valve slept with your girlfriend or punched your dog. I refused to support the EA developed crap they shoveled out previously but if they put in proper research on PS3 then good for them. Let bygones be bygones, and I will support it. A boycott or hope for failure when a company is trying to correct their mistakes is just plain counterproductive.
Good point there. Said everything I was thinking. + Bubbles for you. (Now, PLEASE give ME some). EDIT: Something else I should add. If and when Valve actually makes games for the PS3, and they end up kicking ass, and when they decide "hey, the PS3 cell wasn't that hard to develop for after all, we actually enjoy working with it and can do a ton of things WITH it", it would be a pleasure to hear the 360 fanboys go "OMG, THEY BETRAYED US!!" If for nothing else, to watch them squirm and get fired up while we laugh at THEM for a change. And by the way, I did send my blog at http://www.n4g.com/up/28515... to Gabe Newell (copy and pasted the whole thing into the email). I wonder if he actually took the time to read it. Doubt it, but I got an ego, so....
Hey, I wonder if they can pull a EA and make most of their profits from the PS3?
Valid assesment on your behalf. Still theres a way to do things, its called BUSINESS ETHICS. Valve has been WAAAY too candid about their dislike for the PS3. Not wanting to develope for it is one thing, they have that right, but to call it useless and a waste of time is going to damn far. They are not looking to correct anything if they are indeed plan on making anthing for the PS3. What they are looking to do is cash in on the growing success of the PS3 and I Personally want have a hand in that. I stand behind my comment- Screw Valve!!!
I agree with ProArchy. Instead of seeing this as "OMG go burn in hell Valve, you said this and that!" This is a more positive thing for Sony and the PS3 gamers. Sure they've said their crap, but if you look back in 2006. 90% of the media was saying crap about the PS3 too. Then look at today, you see plenty of articles praising the PS3. More developers and publishers jumping onto the PS3 is just good business as well as good for the gamers.
Did they lose a bet with those guys from SOE or something? Lol that was funny.. SOE guy:Man these guys suck! (valve) at their own game..
But everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people. That is why it is selling well and Valve might just have to waste their time on the piece of sh!t that is the PS3!
What would you say makes a good gaming console ? Reliability? Stuff for free ? Next Gen Technology? Right stupid people ? Enjoy your "dated" 360 bot
That is what makes a good console. PS3 is seriously lacking this way because Sony, in their stupidity, designed a Bluray player first, gaming console second. Enjoy waiting for games and services droids.
good games? *takes a look at games collection and release list* ....check shut up you ignorant dumbass and smell the PS3 line-up the only thing your doing by complaining about Blu-Ray is reminding people that the PS3 has great games AND great media capabilities you fail..
But I don't believe it. He changed his mind completely in 2 weeks? C'mon! I'd love to be wrong, but I don't think that I am. *Gets out knife and fork in hopes of eating my own words* You are a pompous ass Gabe, but you make some decent games.
I have to call bullsh1t on that one. At least as far as Episode 2 is concerned. It was good but the ending ripped off Stardhip Troopers. And not by a little bit. That made me sad.
Just waiting for all the Valve hate comments when they actually do develop alot of amazing games.
and got shafted by Valve and Gabe. Many PS3 owners are out 60 bucks for a broken game. To make matters worse, he is unapologetic about the obvious mishandling of his own IP. He's statements and his additude toward Half-life/TF2 fans on the PS3 is unprofessional. It is one thing for Gabe to dislike the PS3 design or Sony, but it's another thing to punish the PS3 owners for it. There was no way EA's second-hand dev team could have made a decent port of Orange Box. This is obvious even in theory.
Exactly what I've been saying for weeks since Gabe made his childish remarks.
i'm not buying it.. source is not informative or credible and i would say F'U Valve............ but i cant deny that i would love to have Left 4 Dead brought over to the ps3 even if its via valve's first attempt at a ps3 game than by EA
Valve, sorry try again.
to that. Have a Bubble.
I'm waiting Valve. Don't disappoint me. If this is true, us PS3 users should forgive and forget. I want the PS3 to be home to all great developers.
this comment was made on Sunday over the holiday weekend. beers do the talking.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA EVEN FAT GABE KNOWS AMAZING THE PS3 IS BECAUSE MICROSOFT CANT LET THEM BE NICE AND GIVE AWAY FREE. !!!! HAHAHAHAA PS3 YOU HAVE ALL THE OPTIONS!!!! GOODBYE TO YOUR GAMES THEN XBOTS!!!
