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.


Can you share some of that Valve kool-aid, or did you drink it all?

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.

 

"[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 ,

 

 

A quote from Valve boss ^^


That's pretty blunt, but lets be honest. It is a disaster financially for Sony and hurt the Playstation brand.

Several years later Sony is still taking huge losses and they can't sell it for as much as they'd like.

And don't forget developers were threatening to pull support if they didn't drop the price. Developers win while Sony continues to lose.



Funny.

"Doug Lombardi (Valve's VP Marketing) had to take a swipe at the PS3 again, and I thought it was foolish. I read it the same way I read fanboys"

It may be foolish, but since you're taking a swipe at Valve, AGAIN (after the Steam comments), aren't you a bit foolish yourself Randy ?

All time is a bit much.  Though they are up their when it comes to highly rated games.

Best First Person Shooter developer of all time though is hard to debate though.

So if FPS is your favorite genre... it's pretty obvious why you would think they were the best.

Me i'd go with someone like Nintedo who has a much wider catalogue... (even though personally there are other devs i like more.)

Nobody should criticize Valve. They should spend some time trying to make their games better. If you are going to criticize Valve about their gaming policy, you better be named Miyamoto, Kojima, or god.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

I don't think Miyamoto could criticize Valve... hes never tried to port anything on to PS3 either.

Like it or not, Valve, ID, Epic and Bungie are the top tier developers for FPS games with Valve being number 1 in my poinion.

Monolith, Gearbox...few others are trying to be like-valve but are never as good so they have no business in criticizing their games. Howeve rthe Gearbox prez is criticizing their lack of PS3 support...Im not sure how to feel about that. He is partly right I guess...

I don't see what's wrong with that comment, I'm sure many people would agree actually.

You gotta love the PS3 folks slagging off on Valve, but hey, these are the same guys who have no problem with Sony/Insomniac lovefest as well as Kojima (up until a few months ago), but hey, when one developer doesn't want to develop for the PS3, shame on those lazy bastards!



themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

Wow I'm loving every person who had either misread or in their fan-boy rage created meanings that were never there. Way to go VGChartz members.
