Gabe Newell insists the developer is not trying to break the ice with Sony’s powerhouse
Washington-based indie giants Valve has confirmed it will not be developing for the PS3 in the near future, continuing the company’s long-established disagreement with Sony.
Two years ago Valve co-founder Gabe Newell criticised the PS3, claiming that development investment in the hardware offers “no long-term benefits”.
“You're not going to gain anything except a hatred of the architecture they've created,” he said at the time.
It seems that Newell is persisting with this view. A Kotaku report unearths Newell’s interview with GTTV, in which he is asked whether the developer is trying to make strides with PS3 development.
“No. Not in any real way,” replied Newell.
Back in July, Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2 project lead Tom Leonard explained why the group continues to focus on the PC and Xbox 360:
“The PC and the 360 are just more straightforward,” he said. “We can focus on what we want to do, which is make game experiences, instead of sweating bullets over obscure architectural decisions they make with [Sony’s] platform.”
