Valve is worth about 5 billion and Gabe owns the majority of the company. Maybe Gabe wants to sell since he is getting up there in age.

Getting on with age doesn't automtically say that he's going to sell  the entire company to MS.

He doesn't agree with MS at all, so I doubt he'd even sell to them at all.

He loves money.

Well, if anyone needs it, it's Microsoft. Must be a nice change for their developers to look at good code for once.

The savagery!

And Steam earns Valve a lot of money. Your point is moot.

Nothing can compare to a big lump sum of money before retiring.. look at Minecraft.

My opinion it doesnt bother me if MS buy Steam or not, i enjoy both there services alot.

As for the OP, i wonder why MS wanted to buy Github?

So does everyone on this planet. Doesn't automatically mean everyone will be a sellout.

Not selling out when he is closer to death. He still has his dignity.

None of that makes any sense....

Possibly service integration, which helps make their other platforms seem more attractive. (Bing, Outlook and so on.)
