[Valve] Valve Brings More Steam to GDC - Page 2

Steam is being ported to Ps3 b/c that's the easiest way for them to update content. They hate programming for the Ps3 so they handed their Ps3 games off to EA for them to program. They were big backers of the 360 but Microsoft's update policy where they only allow 1 free update really hampers devs like Valve and Blizzard from offering new, FREE content, a la L4D2 and TF2. All the updates, re-balances, new maps, new weapons, etc, Valve would have to charge for with the 360.

Over the years, Valve and Blizzard have tried to get MS to change this policy but they weren't having it, so Valve is bringing Steam to Ps3 as a way to fix the above.

Actually doesn't sound like a bad idea. Most of the time when I talk to people about gaming on the PC among the first responses I get is "there's nothing better than a PS3/Xbox 360 on a big HD screen!". If people begin to hook their PC's up to their HDTV's more perhaps it will bring some more money into PC gaming.
Yes I know there is more to it than that but it's still not a bad move.

Valve knows their stuff, they aren't going to do something that is bad for their customer base.

I love how Gabe/Valve were so against their games being on PS3, yet now, there they go, starting with Portal 2.

This honestly sounds very exciting indeed, those who want to live in the past can just avoid everything new.

So I guess hooking up a HDMI cable from your video card to your TV is "too complciated" so now we have "big picture mode." That even sounds dumb

Wow, glad to see Valve is trying to bring in money in from more then one platform, hopefully more better things in the future for the PC as a result. But we all know how it usually goes........

Because people like me would not normally be intrigued in buying a console. This changes things.
