MS bought exclusive content and advertising for several games. You think its a big deal because Sony did the same for a few titles? Its called competition. Sony also seems to have a relationship with WB so you can expect their PS3 ports to often have some exclusives.
Clearly Valve is making an effort to get in PS3 fans good graces after all the crap they said before. Valve isn't back PS3 over MS. MS simply doesn't want their Steam software and Valve already knows 360 is a better vehicle for moving their games.
Sony lost a lot of support because their console was too expensive, they weren't selling many units, and developers wanted the 360 audience. It had nothing to do with PS3's lack of exclusives, it was lack of audience due to price.
Course I don't think it's a big deal it's still more 3rd party support, and the fact that third parties stopped talking deals from MS (with exception of modernwarefare) is more telling then the deals Sony has gotten, lack of games made the price not worth it, if they had Uncharted and Infamous at launch the console would have done significantly better, course nothing beats a lower price when it comes to consumers
