but their quick abandonment of Steam Link after I bought it ticked me off,

Why? It still works, doesn't it? They didn't stop supporting that hardware, they just stopped selling the hardware when it came redundant, since a lot of other devices can do the job (iOS, Android, Raspberry Pis and many Smart TVs can run the Steam-Link-App).

Sony allies with Epic and Gabe says Series X is better, i am shocked



Nothing to see here, move along

Not surprising as Gabe generally liked xbox over the years compared to playstation like during the ps3/360 era. I am sure they have a good partnership as well considering how many MS games are coming to steam not that I am suggesting anything nefarious.

Fanboys don't give (Actual) reasons to own a console. That's why they are fanboys. They speak on knowledge they no nothing about aside from trying to convince others based off brand loyalty. Gabe is a neutral customer to both brands and probably could care less out of either of them however this question is more to do with if he had to choose..

His sole focus is PC gaming.

Well Gabe gives no reason at all. Hes obviously not neutral. He hated the PS3 as well at first. Im sure he will come out at a PS5 event looking like a hostage again after a few years when he need Sony to sell his products though. 

Didn't Gabe give the PS2 the best port of Half Life 2 on release? and gave Portal 2 exclusive content on the PS3? He looks after Playstation just as much as he did Xbox. He hated the PS3 because it was a nightmare console to developer for, something western developers admitted, that shouldn't put him in the fanboy bracket for making factual claims, he was just being honest, beside he still ported games to the PS3, he wouldn't of done that otherwise.

That makes sense. Well at least more than "because it is".

No. Half-Life 2 was not on the PS2. The Orange Box was on the PS3, but it wasnt as good as the 360 version from what I heard. It was when they announced Portal 2 on the PS3 that he awkwardly came out on stage at the Sony E3 conference. He didnt just not like the PS3. He talked alot of shit about it and Sony themselves. Not necessary.

Sorry i meant Half Life 1 on the PS2, Quote from the article below

---The most noticeable difference in this port is its improved graphics. The character models are much more detailed, featuring eyes that track movement, facial expressions, and jointed fingers. The levels were also updated and extended based on the work from the Dreamcast port, and most of the bugs were ironed out, making it the most technologically advanced and stable version of the game to date.---

Ok. So he didnt hate them during the PS2 era. Good for him. 

All Im saying is that he should try and sound a bit professional instead of an idiot. 



Of course he prefers it because it makes him a shit load of money, while Playstation costs him.
