But that's was not what Chazore was saying. He said that Gabe isn't going to sell Valve to MS because he has voiced disagreements against MS in the past.

We know Gabe isn't going to sell to MS, my point is nothing is impossible. Stranger things have happened.

Anything can technically happen, but if that is all what you're arguing, then... well duh.

The chances are still extremely unlikely not just because Gabe has expressed disagreements against Microsoft in the past, but also Valve's updated policies towards game publishing on Steam are too libertarian for Microsoft's tastes. Yes, I know that the link to Microsoft's tastes is not related to game publishing, but it is to show how the fundamental principles between Valve and Microsoft highly contrast with each other.

Despite all this documentation, you know he's likely to come back with another wording for "you never know".

Thank you, I don't have to, you said it for me. Now lets please move on from this debate. I am not here to tell you anything is possible, you already know this.

And it never will

 

Answered it for you.



All ths discussion of Valve and Ms is pointless since you can't buy what is not on sale, no matter how cheap it is.
