Sony Willing To Help Valve With Future PS3 Projects
Before all of you make the standard Valve and Gabe Newell insults, please bear in mind that we're all gamers; we all want good games, regardless who makes 'em. ...right?
In the past, Valve has freely admitted that they don't have the right team to effectively and successfully produce a game for the PlayStation 3. They even said they were interested in maybe working with the PS3 but they simply don't have the experience; they've said they need "PS3 guys" in the studio. Well, Sony has offered their assistance according to the latest edition of the HipHopGamerShow, and we're wondering if Valve is willing to accept their help. At this point, we'd love it if something like Left 4 Dead showed up on the PS3 in the future, and while we're not as impressed with past Valve projects as other gamers and journalists, we're fully aware of what they're capable of. But let's not forget that Sony has offered their assistance to third-party designers since the start of the generation, primarily because developers would complain about the difficulty of the PS3. So our only question is this: "if Valve wanted help, they could've had it all along...what took them so long to ask and/or accept?"
Look, we're all for ambitious developers looking to make things better for us, but Valve has already obtained a poor reputation amongst the PS3 crowd over the past few years and by now, they're going to have to really work to regain some lost trust and admiration.
