Half-Life 2: Episode 3 Set For PS3
Last year's The Orange Box was a package lovingly created for fans of the Half-Life franchise, but Valve isn't quite yet done with Half-Life 2 (the focal point of The Orange Box).
Episode 3 is coming at some point, as evidenced by the first piece of concept art - shown here - that has been circulating throughout the Internet. If you check IntothePixel's website, you'll see it there, and you'll also see something else: the art is labeled as "Half-Life EP3" and the listed platforms are PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Considering Valve's clear aversion to consoles and obvious PC favoritism, we wonder if it might debut first on the PC. But more importantly for PS3 owners, we're wondering if Episode 3 will once again be better on the 360 (Valve palmed off dev duties onto EA for the PS3 version of The Orange Box), thereby annoying us once again.
Well, at the very least, it appears Episode 3 is most certainly coming to the PS3, and we'll just have to hope Valve does a better job with respecting the PS3 userbase this time around.
