Valve Working On PS3? "No, Not In Any Real Way"

The last we heard from Valve, we had reason to be encouraged. We're not the biggest fans of the company or its boss, Gabe Newell, but it appeared that after a few years of ignoring - and taking potshots at - the PlayStation 3, they were starting to come around.

A Valve representative all but admitted they weren't up to snuff on Sony's new hardware, and they actually wanted to bring in some "PS3 guys" so they could really give the console its just due. Then there was talk of seeing Left 4 Dead on the PS3, and the corresponding rumor that the sequel might also come to the PS3. But in a recent GTTV interview with Geoff Keighley, Newell kinda brought the whole thing crashing down again. When asked if Valve was working on the PS3 and "trying to understand it" and "get better at it," Newell responded:

"Uh, no. Not in any real way."

It's absolutely ridiculous to assume that a developer who wants to make money would be biased, but we're starting to run out of options. This returns us to what Valve has said about the PS3 in the past (none of which is complimentary), and if any other major developer agreed in some capacity, we'd honor their opinion. But in the end, they just appear lazy and biased...there's no other way to look at it, is there? And you know what? As we've said before, we don't care. Oh darn; the new L4D and the seventy-third Half-Life iteration won't come our way; oh boo-hoo, Gabe, you made us all cry. Really.

P.S. No, we're not fans of the guy, but there will be no personal flaming or insults in the Comments below. Anything constructive will be fine, but just leave out the name-calling, okay?

If he doesn't want my money, he won't get it. If I REALLY want a valve game, I'll just copy it for PC from one of my friends. His choice, his mistake.

Valve have always been PC guys. They never would have started doing console stuff if Microsoft never paid them the ungodly amount of money they did. Personally, I've played both Orange Box and L4D on both PC and Xbox 360 and clearly the PC versions are superior. Gabe should shut up about consoles in general and just focus on PC.

Seems a stupid rational to me, why miss out on another slice of cake in the games market.

When development is so costly and relativity speaking a little extra outlay for a large return is worth it, you would think Gabe would want all the cake he could get.

I think even Gabe knows its about time to start making PS3 games and get some dedicated developers.

But because he wanted to look like such a badass and talk trash about the PS3 in the early days he doesn't want to look like he was wrong(although that's already obvious), so know instead of being a man about it he is blinded by his own pride. Which is stopping Valve making more money so who is the winner here ?

I don't see how any game company could help themselves by bashing one of the systems. I mean really, they are just closing doors on future opportunities.

The PS3 was not what the 360 was two years ago, but he must have been sure that it would fail as a console. Even if he wanted to make PS3 games now, he would have to get out of a pretty big hole that he dug himself.

I just wish people would stop asking Mr. Newell about making mediocre games for a console now praised for its exclusives.

If Valve isn't smart enough to know there are 24 million more potential customers if they port games over, then I don't want anything they offer.

The only differences I experienced was incredible lag in some moments of the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed and everything in Tony Hawk looked worse than its 360 counterpart.

Mind you, these were in the days when multiplat developers had no idea how to program games for decent performance on a PS3.

It doesn't matter what valve does and doesn't want to do, he doesn't have to support Sony so he won't. He will loose profits so he doesn't care. I'll admit I'm pretty excited for Half Life episode 3 but it won't matter. My respect for Valve has long since depleted, I mean look at the guy. I don't have to say anything.

Look, I couldn't honestly care less about valve making games for the PS3. But I think it is absolutly comical, the excuses that they used in the past to justify their reasoning for not doing so, but at the same time none of us here would have bitched if SquareEnix had said they were not going to do FF XIII for the 360. Let them have their valve/Microsoft love affair and take comfort in knowing neither valve nor Microsoft studios will be able to bring gamers anything close to our exclusive line-up.

Yes, now when the ps3 is excelling; he wants to "give the console it's just due." If it takes him 3 years to finally have faith in a console; why would I want to purchase his crap?

I can understand not flaming and name-calling with other community members, but not doing it to a person in an article? Damn he deserves a good verbal ass-kicking.

But hey, guess I'll just have to edit myself.

Just take one long look at his pic. First thing that comes to mind is a PERSON who is of that size who wants to turn the T.V. on but the location of the remote is 2 feet too far from him. So instead of getting up, he waits 2 hours stairing at a blank screen until grandma comes home and hands him the remote.

We all knew he was lazy...when your "like him" the quickest point from A to B is the fastest and least energy wasting way. (A la developing on a accessible machine like the 360).

For some reason...I keep seeing Porky the Pig in my mind...I don't know what could have made me think of that. SURELY it had nothing to do with anyone in this article...maybe just Deja Vu or sumthin...

Arcade don't have a hard drive so no saved games without a M$ marked up memory stick. Not to mention the $50+ you need for the LIVE subscription. You need to add a headset if you want it.

$200 bucks just became $300 and you haven't left the store yet. Keeping in mind your paying for that LIVE every year so add on that cost too.

I say hit a torrent site and grab yourself a pirated copy of Left 4 Dead, show Mr Newell what being PC dedicated developer gets him. Pirated.

Left 4 Dead is great but so short it would just be a waste of 95% of a Blu-Ray disc anyway. It's a couple gig download at best, well no more than 9 gigs I'm sure ;) lol

LoL, I never thought of it quite that way.

I always thought "what are you guys talking about, I've compared costs and it's roughly the same, especially when you throw in Xbox Live costs and batteries".

That's why my reasoned thinking makes no sense to them, they are just plain nuts. Makes sense now.

I'm a console gamer through and through and so I don't really care that the PS3 won't get any Valve games. They should just stick to the PC or that uber-PC that looks like a tampon that has a fanbase that does consist of some good guys but are more infamous for their gamerscore cheats, insensitive jerks and Ponzi schemers that also game on that machine.

Valve have every right to develop for the systems they choose, just like Insomniac, Sucker Punch, and Kojima. They are, as some have said, PC fanboys and only port to the 360 because it's easy and it allows them to survive.

What they need to learn is to avoid inflammatory statements about other systems, just like Insomniac, Sucker Punch, and Kojima.

Well, Valve is a quality game developer, there's no doubt about that. Saying otherwise is just kind of silly, but so what - just get those games on the PC instead, problem solved!

PS3 + PC really is the ultimate gaming combo, almost all good xbox games are also released for the PC, and 99.9% of them are much better on the PC version anyway.

If you have a PS3 and a PC, there really is no need to get an xbox!

By 'not in any real way', he means, we've been playing Uncharted, MGS4, WipeoutHD, and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and crying to ourselves...wondering why we can't make games that look and play that good. I think when Gabe gets depressed, he eats. Thus, every picture that's taken, well, it's pretty apparent, I don't need to take the joke any further.

Left 4 Dead is pretty damn fun online, but I'll never get it (my pc is weak and I'm not paying for live).

Valve is just too f***ing lazy to learn to develop on the ps3.

Well, that's...just...sad,

Honestly, that's truly pathetic. I was going to put some effort into a analysis of this, but in the end I thought about it and realized that as much as Gabe Newel and Valve think they matter, they really don't matter at all. I mean will anyone die in a ditch over a Valve game of any kind? Will anyone really lose sleep over whether or not Valve ever attempts to build a PS3 game?

So, in the end, all there is left to say is...

Whatever.

you know what? If the 360 players want to keep playing re-releases of halflife 2 every few years then let them, Valve is just another company aptly named for thier leader. Valve isn't just the name of the company secretly it's Gabe getting the news out that he needs a new one.

gabe thats fine.
but for once how about instead of constantly going and talking about "were not making games for the ps3" like seriously how many articles this year have been of him saying the EXACT SAME THINGS!
how about for once you put your head down, and start working on those games you promised us.
half life 2 eppisode 3 was announced how many years ago and we still have jack .... info on it.
at this rate its not going to be out till 2019 and we will have another 150000000000 articles of gabe saying no were still not making games for the ps3.
no games for ps3 FINE how about you make some games for the PC?

To be honest though, would you? Given their resistence to even learning the PS3's internals...you know for a fact that the first game would suck ass. Heck, even the 2nd might. Most multi-plat developers have had to publish at least one garbage port, before actually figuring out something that resembles a decent PS3 game. And if Valve are in any way looking into such developement, well, let's face it...they're the best secret keepers in the world.

i wish valve would scrap the 360 and go back to their roots.
just focus on PC.
valve and ID use to be the kings of PC gaming now theve slackened off and gone to consoles, crytek are following suite.
i have a 3K PC i want to see what it can do, i can upgrade it to 2 nvidia 295GTXs if i need to i want to see what they can do.
if 1 nvidia 9800GTX = crysis i want to see what 2 Nvidia 295GTXs equal.

Why do we even want Valve games on the PS3?
I think the PS3 is doing just fine with Killzone 2, Uncharted, Resistance, MAG, inFamous, Fat Princess, MotorStorm and a lot more! So why do we want to make a good system crap by adding Valve games?
I mean, look at the 360! (No offense, I love the XBOX 360)

The reason why Valve hasn't hired people to program for the PS3 is because they are afraid that they wont make much money on the PS3.. You know what? I agree! From all of the BS Valve has put on us PS3 users over the last few years, I don't think anyone would actually buy games made by Valve!
So if you think about it, not putting games onto the PS3 is sort of a smart move!
I mean, can you honestly say that if Valve puts Half-Life 3 or Left 4 Dead 2 on the PS3, that you would buy it? Honestly?


Oh and don't let my name fool you, I play every console. I actually play the PS3 and X360 more than the Wii!

Oh and one more thing, I am not a fanboy! :)

i think its no problem.

most PS3 owner also have a PC. so just go buy the PC version.

as usual the PC version will look better than the xbox 360. The mouse also give a lot more precission and easier to aim.

you also can chat using keyboard or voice.

Valve has many problems:

1. They take so long to make a game

2. The games they make are no where near the quality of action or FPS games found on PS3.

3. ALL their games are exactly the same!!! It's just half life re-skinned over and over and over and over again.

Left 4 Dead 2 seems to be getting more criticism than praise, and quite frankly, it deserves that criticism.

There's very little that is new with L4D 2. A few melee weapons and turn the lights on. Really Valve? Is that really the best you can do? AND it has Wii looking graphics!!! honestly, when I was watching footage of it on TV, I didn't know if I was looking at House of the Dead on Wii or a PS2 classic!!!

Sorry Valve. Bringing Left 4 Dead or its sequel to the PS3 will not get you my money. Not until you make a game worthy of my time and money. Orange Box on PC is the only thing you did right. You should stick to PC, get off your fat arses and do some work.
You're a game development company!!! What on earth are you doing if you're not making games?!?!?

Top ten things Valve does when not making games;
10, Watch TV.
9, Play Team Fortress 2.
8, Watch Trailer Park Boys.
7, Sleep.
6, Watches Funny Cat videos on YouTube.
5, Makes YouTube remove the videos because Valve didn't laugh.
4, Rants at Sony.
3, Watches 'Family Guy'
2, Plays Hide-n-Seek with the TF2 Scout.
And the number 1 thing that Valve does is;
1, Eat.


PS: I was not doing any 'personal' flaming, nor was I insulting a specific person who works for Valve, I was making fun of Valve in general.


PS,S: I actually think Gabe Newel looks cool! I mean, I always loved Family Guy! (I'm not joking, I actually do think he looks cool)



Oh and Ben, the forum link doesn't appear to be working? It gave me a screen that said '404' and then it told me that the site did not exist.
Am I doing something wrong? Or is the forum down?

the way i see it, you're not exactly a good production/development company when you limit yourself too one piece of tech

it's just lazy and shows you don't really have the skill to compete with other devs, hence why they blatantly don't work on the ps3. Just looking at l4d makes me laugh, such poor basic graphics, like playing a pc game back in 2002

weird,

in my pc Left 4 Dead all max running at 1440x900 60fps constant (i turn on the v-sync :) ) look very good and very fun to play (on multiplayer).

maybe you forget to go to graphic menu and choose high setting :)

btw valve is a PC developer. so why they make X360 ports but not PS3?

1. maybe because porting from PC to xbox 360 is a lot easier than porting from PC to PS3.
2. maybe because MS forced (payed?) valve to make xbox 360 version.

its just my opinion. dont take it so serious ;)

I always prefer the comp version of a shooter over any console's version. Not just Valve's shooters, but any. So I don't think its all that great of a loss that Valve won't be putting much emphasis on its games on this platform.

For the pc, I think Valve is a fantastic company. Great innovator, and lots of consideration for players.

the ps3 is very different to program for in my understanding it uses a complete different language and compiler.
as far as i know the pc and 360 use C++ with the trubo compiler for example.
im pretty sure the language ps3 games are written in is different to C++, hence all the problems of porting it across
