valve can do what they want, its there loss

Let valve do what they want. They have the Talent and Catalog of games for us not to question them. It sucks for PS3 owners but any real gamer will have a gaming PC or a 360 to back it up.

Valve = Best developer of all time so their "arrogance" is completley valid.



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

About time someone called Valve out on their bullshit attitude. If they don't wanna make a PS3 game fine, but don't go slagging the console off calling it shit when nearly every other dev has produced quality on it, or criticising EA for a bad port when they having even tried themselves.

I don't recall them calling the PS3 shit. I remember them saying its more difficult to develop for which is common knowledge. Recall what was said about Bayonetta?

The 360 and PC is the bread and butter for Valve. Also keeping their games exclusive to one console creates hype.



If bioware can produce a better looking version of DA for ps3 compare to 360 in thier first attempt on developing 4 ps3 then I don't see why Valve can't after all I thought they are "very talented" devs......either way I couldn't careless cause I buy their games on PC.

"[The PS3 is] a disaster on many levels ... I'd say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a do over. Just say, 'This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it ,

I think it's just PC....

The 360 ports just get made because they're cheap.

I look at it like this.

Say your a column writer for the New York Post.

You get paid a lot of money to work for them.

Some Newspaper in england offers you a small fee to syndicate your columns because they want to show how different life is in the US then the UK, it's like... a 20th of what you make, but all you need to do is email them a copy of your column along with your editor... and maybe ad a few U's here and there.

A newspaper in France sees the column and really likes the idea, offers you a 30th of what you make... but your expected to translate the language into french.  A Language in which you speak, but it's still a lot more trouble.


Why bother for a 30th of your salary?  Sure you'd be making more money, but it's a LOT more trouble for you.  (Keep in mind Valve is a private company, so such things matter more to them then public companies who need to maxmize all profits and grow to keep multitudes of invsetors happy.)

At the time he was quoted saying that... he really wasn't that off.. I mean, that was what... around Uncharted 1?  That was back when MOST multiplats were still worse on PS3, despite its hardware advantage.



They can do what they want, although personally I think it's more sensible to simply keep quiet on platforms you don't support vs Gabe's somewhat loose tongue.

But hey, I love their games and play them on PC only, so it's not like I'm bothered by their lack of PS3 support and extra money on the side 360 support.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

well I play games on a console and have no interest in valve. I think its a fair tradeoff



I'm not martin luther king. I don't have a dream. I have a plan

Sell a man a fish you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish you just ruined a perfect business opportunity.

We didn't emerge out of the stone age because we ran out of stones. Its time to be proactive not reactive.

i agree with him, We cant Expect Next gen game out of Valve , we can expect upgraded PS2 games.

Cause the PS3 is so much different from the PS2.

I mean look at the controller for instance... so different.

What are you talking about?!

He's saying that you can't expect next generation PS3 type games from valve... instead upgraded PS2 games... (or at least thats what it seems like.)

When in general PS3 games are in fact.... upgraded PS2 games. 

It's like the difference between the NES and the SNES.

 

So what you are saying is the 360 runs upgraded xbox 1 games as well?  See the logic makes no sense, I owned both of the previous generation consoles....and there is nothing out on both of them that looks anything or runs anything like last gen games.  If this is in regards to valve, yes you are correct; left for dead looks alot better on pc then on the 360; the orange box for consoles are just ports from the xbox version of half life 2, so in this you are correct.  But it ends there with valve, every other game developer seems to live and develop in this generation of consoles without exception.

Yes.  I am saying that... 360 does run upgraded valve Xbox 1 games.

graphics done by the source engine do nothing as far as "next generation" goes.

 

Fixed it for you, no problem.

 

 

Hooray, to resulting to an old internet gimic when you can't actually argue anything.

Congradulations on conceding the argument in one of the more immature ways available.
