Check out some details and screenshots of Steam for PS3.
wow that looks heaps good can't wait
also keep in mind that this steam-overlay consumes some of the PS3 RAM, the 360 version has no steam in-game thus no RAM-loss for the 360 and yet the PS3 is equal to the 360 version(or maybe even better? less blurry on the PS3?). This is a whole other story than the orange box on the PS3, where the lack of instant reload was omitted on the PS3 due to RAM limitations. I think PS3 orange box owners deserve a patch which removes the blur filter, brings real AA, instant reload after dying, constant 60fps, and all the TF2 DLC. This should be a walk in the park for valve. and THEN I will truly forgive valve
valve is the best developer in this world hands down best PC exclusives and now best multiplats (PS3 xbox360 and MAC)
so you guys want to leave your version of TOB as it is? I ain't so forgiving as you guys. Paid goddamn €70 for it.
then that's your fault for being an ignorant consumer, do some research before you buy anything...
yeah.. this is you
lol @ ppl that disagreed with me you guys think that valve is a bad developer ??
@shwiggity Thus I am in fault when I am the victim of phising, because I should do some research first. Like for example do a whois first on the site where you enter your bank-account details. Another example: a girl meets a boy. They go out together. The boy murders the girl. Your logic: the girl was in fault, she should do some research first before going out with that boy. Luckily the police doesn't use your ethics
Ocelot, that's completely irrelevant. The game did no harm to you at all. The fact that you feel like a game needs to be perfect and bugfree means you have a horrible sense of entitlement. You should have done some research first. For a better example, a girl (you) goes on a blind date with a guy (TF2) and she doesn't like him because he isn't very hygienic and lacks manners. She doesn't have anyone else to blame but herself because she thought the person she would randomly go out with would be the best.
the PS3 orange box has the valve logo in front on the box, even tough it ain't developed by valve. Thus I expected a finished quality product. Which I didn't get. Now I don't consider valve as the best of the best anymore, unlike the many who still do. Portal 2 did however raised my respect towards valve again. But I won't forget their sins. Unless...
It's not a sin, not even close. I don't think it was even ported by Valve, in fact. It was another company, if I recall correctly.
Ocelot, PS3 Orange Box came out 3 1/2 years ago, get over it.
It was ported by EA London. Yet it was sold with the valve logo on it.
It also has the EA logo on it. EA just ported it, of course it's gonna have Valve on it they created it.
Ocelot525 Both versions look about the same on both systems the only difference is that the PS3 version has a better use of AA. ANYWAYS Steam on the PS3 looks awesome!
Dude. You are way off. EA ported the Orange Box, not Valve. Although I still dislike Gabe Newell, its not the development team. Most games ported to the PS3 in the beginning were of a lower quality. Even those that were done by the same development team. So you should be pointing the finger at many other developers.
PS3 is equal to 360? Why is it when a ps3 game beats a 360 game hands down you fanboys are quick to say its a draw but your the first here to say when its a draw 360 won biased much? Anyways looks great hope we get some more steam features.
is this an actual interface you get within the game or is this steam using the ps3 browser?
It's the same ingame overlay you get with the PC version of Steam. It's not a seperate windows that gets operated by PS3's browser.
It's probably code within the game itself, so no, not using the PS3's browser.
It's the interface that you get through the game. You can bring it up by pressing select (if the details that I've read previously are correct).
Havent played the PS3 version, but believe this is the in-game interface, which is accessed by pressing 'select', much like the PC 'shift+tab', but of course quite a bit more basic. Edit: LOL I should refresh before rplying if I've had the page open for a while.
this looks cool and the beginning of a good thing. Half life 3 will undoubtedly get this kind of support I am betting.
You wouldn't know that ps3 players & pc players can play together if you only play on pc.. It's not even an option or advertised on steam!! weird!
Makes sense why PS3 Version is selling more than Xbox.
question... if Steam is on the PS3 now, does that mean maybe in the future we can get games like L4D or L4D2??
Don't see why not
no since steam only runs inside of portal 2 for ps3. its by no means part of the XMB bar.
There's nothing saying that Sony and Valve aren't working behind the scenes to deploy steam system-wide. Think about it, it would instantly give Sony a tried and true platform to combat XBL that already features cross game chat/invites/etc. and also comes with the added benefit of cross platform chat/invites/etc., which would leave MS scrambling for ways to convince it's userbase that Live was still worth that $60/yr. PS3 would suddenly gain every feature that XBL users enjoy so much and then some for free. Also, Sony employees have gone on the record saying that since the FW for PS3 is developed in Japan, all features have to clear SCEJ first. And since Japan isn't as in to online gaming as the west, they rarely put network features like cross game chat in their priority list for new features. Licensing Steam would get around that, it's an all in one package that's ready to go. Me thinks Portal 2 is a test run to see how well it works (cross platform, user interest, etc.) before taking bigger steps.
The PS3 could get those games even without Steam, Valve just have to port the games across. Steam on PS3 would be great though, it's so stylish.
agreed. i hope Sony gets into a contract with Valve and let them do a firmware update to integrate Steam with PSN... Steam focus on certain online features and PSN focus on PSStore and products
Ps3 version it is then HA HA HA
Steamworks, not Steam. Get it right next time
>valve is the best developer in this world hands down >best PC exclusives >and now best multiplats (PS3 xbox360 and MAC) Ahahahahahahahahahah im yet to see a good game from valve, well there's L4D but thats it for me..
Half Life 2, Team Fortress, Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, and Portal all say hi. ;P
@Ocelot525 you wont see any source engine games running at 60fps on the current consoles.
Wow, way off. Reply to him directly next time. Even better just ignore him, he's delusional.
This is a big step for gaming. True PC and Console integration. Saving a game and continuing it on any PC, playing with PC gamers... could be a sign of things to come in the future for the Industry. Maybe this is the first step? Anyways, I'm happy either way. We need to see more of this across the Industry.
This is great, just opens the door to even more possibilities!
Got to chapter 3 today... i was stuck on certain levels for a good few minutes and the story is awesome. There are about 15 second loading times between each level. Steam integration looks really fluid. Just hit the select button and it brings up the overlay. havent had the change to play with anyone on steam yet.
