I HATE Valve

Recently Valve has talked a lot of shit on the PS3. 
 
"Right now don't not buy it on the 360 because you think it's coming out on the PS3 - it's not going to," Chet Faliszek said. "Right? It's coming out on the PC and 360. It's going to be exclusive for that." 
  
Faliszek also said that Left 4 Dead 2 is "all about playing with your friends," and that "in hooking up with your friends and the community aspects, I think the Xbox 360 is head and shoulders above the PS3. The 360 and PC are on par, right?"

 
I've had a good time with my PS3, and loads of people are making the turn.:
 
PS3 Tekken 6 is outselling 360, just like BlazBlue did.
The PS3 is outselling the 360 for the past three months.
Uncharted 2 continues the streak for Sony having the highest rated exclusive.
Uncharted 2 SUCCEEDS with making a great multiplayer experience on the PS3 (better than any of Valves multiplayer nerd blow outs). 
 
Now I'm not saying this has relevance to Left 4 Dead 2. But you should get the point. Valve is not being mature on how they talk on the PS3. I don't know if Microsoft paid them an extra buck or two or what, but I don't see intelligence in the comments they have made. They shouldn't be feeling high and mighty enough to bash another company when they are currently hyping a game that looks like last years installment.
 
Faliszek, fuck off. If something doesn't turn out right on the PS3 it's because you aren't good enough at developing.
 
So quit mouthing the best console of this generation and work harder making your rehash sequel look like a fun game. You pandering, monotonous, sycophant.

Developing for the cell processor is costly, face it. It's a new technology that has nothing to do with talent: Valve has to hire folks for R&D, coding, porting, and more. If it isn't necessary (i.e. they make enough money without putting it out on all consoles), then why in the hell would they bother?
 
Its called capitalism.

I just try to ignore this crap. I have owned a 360 in the past, and I think both systems are just as good as the other.

Uncharted hasn't been released for my preferred platform, but I don't hate Naughty Dog. They made a quality game.
 
EDIT: You dipshit.

That's sort of true, but why are you being a hypocrite?

er.... what? I don't even know what this is supposed to mean, but if you're suggesting I love Halo then you should read some of my previous posts including a long one called "why I hate Halo"... 
 
In other news, you make the comment that Sony has the highest rated exclusives.  
 
... What games are you talking about again?  O_o
Posted by Suicrat
@vgmkyle: Sycophants will use the facts that further the argument in support of the thing they worship (in your case, it's the PS3, an admittedly-great console), but you wrote a blog post criticizing a company for criticizing a company you love. That's sycophantic.

I just about raged when I saw the title of this thread.  Valve is arguably the greatest developer of our time...  I can't think of a single game they've made that wasn't totally awesome. 
 
I'm sorry that the 360 got an exclusive, and that the mean man bashed your favorite console.  Are you going to be okay, or do you want some ice cream to make it better?  Valve is in the business of making PC and 360 games, much like Naughty Dog is in the business of making Sony exclusives.  Live with it.

I concur. I too wish that they would release games for the PS3, such as Left 4 Dead 2. I don't exactly hate Valve, but it is annoying with their excuses not to develop for this equally-as-fine-as-the-360 console.

I agree with you with Sony having the highest rated exclusives but saying that it's outselling the 360 at the moment is kind of dumb. It's not outselling yet, it's just catching up and the gap between the two system's sales figures are thinning.
 
Besides, Valve is a PC developer at heart so we're lucky that it comes out on ANY console!

Posted by eroticfishcake

If Valve had the time, money and manpower. I'm pretty sure they'll develop their games for the PS3. Since they' ve been developing for the 360 as it came out before the PS3 did. They just happened to have more experience with that and thus they favour the 360. If you want to play Valve games why not play it on a PC? A majority of their games aren't graphic intensive so they'll run on most PCs these days.

My PC and Valve> Your PS3
 
That's just my "opinion".

I'll try to expand on my last sentence. Valve is NOT going to waste resources developing for a console that is difficult to program for. The problem is that people do not buy Valve games on consoles so Valve don't waste resources on developing for a console where the game will not sell. Get a PC. I know I am.

Kyle, no offense...But posting something this inflammatory on a site like Giantbomb is you basically asking to get your ass handed to you. I've done some dumb things in my life, believe my, but nothing this dumb.

I don't like Valve's video games. I'm not saying this to hate, but their style is grainy and boring to me.
 
That's why I don't think they should be talking crap about PS3. If I was in the business I would NEVER be like that.

Then why do you give a shit? They can say whatever the hell they want, its a free world. I've heard way more insulting slander from developers towards other systems/games.
 
Oh and the only reason you say you don't like Valve games is because they insulted your precious PS3. Grow up kid. Valve is one of the best developers of all time.

Nothing to do with talent,huh? Developing for the PS3 is reward for hard work and worth it for whoever HAS THE TALENT TO GET IT DONE PROPERLY....Damn,is that really too hard for anyone to understand? Valve has no talent at making games anyway,only low life nerds can actually call Alex from Half Life 2 an attractive woman.But back to my point,Valve isn't developing L4D2 on the PS3 because they don't have the talent and/or they are way too lazy to actually put some effort into their games.The reason Left 4 Dead is played more on the 360 is because lame gamers with low standards easily satisfied by Halo are the ones who actually enjoy the game. 
 
Accusing the PS3 of having inferior online play is just Valve's way of saying fuck you because they're voluntarily Microsoft's bitches.I play on PSN all the time and it's the same online experience as when I play on Xboxlive,aside from the differences of the 360 and PS3 themselves...and we know people are playing games on the PS3 cause the games AND the console is selling right off the shelves to the hardcore gamer that Valve clearly doesn't contribute the time or effort into developing for.Also,since when is a video game's online service there for "the community aspects" ? It's about competing against humans instead of just AI,most of us don't want all the flame wars over the headset that usually comes with xboxlive...whether we are just listening to it or directly in the middle of it.

None of those relate to his main reason for Left 4 Dead 2 not coming to the Playstation 3.  The Playstation Network is just not on par with Xbox Live's community aspect, yet.   
 
Something as simple as a unified friends list greatly improves things.

Erhm, not to be a dick but maybe you should grow up? 
I don't really care that much about Valve games in general, because they all get boring pretty fast in my opinion. 
So I don't think that they're "the best developers of all time".  
And sure they insulted the PS3 and yadayada blabla fanboynonsense, but who honestly fucking cares? 
So if me not liking Valve and their games, also makes me a kid and means that I should grow up too then you're a pathetic fanboy, right? 
 
I mean, I'm only asking you if you are, but you seem like it with statements like that. 
Did his commentary towards Valve make you angry?

No, the reason L4D is played on the 360 more is because we ENJOY it.  I love Valve for all of their games.  I hate Bungie for the ruining of Halo 3.  Does that mean i am some blur-minded fanboy?  And when you say they don't have talent, i say, look at their sales charts
