I think it's pathetic that they are working on a MAC based support for videogames, when they don't even release games on the PS3.

I don't get the option of them staying the same?  I don't own a Mac or a PS3... and I like Valve so I do not wish them to burn in hell. :/

So you're saying the 360 isn't an 'actual console'? I'm amazed and glad they work with any consoles at all. 
 
I want them to update the 360 version of TF2, but I doubt its ever going to happen.

#6 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

Fuck Mac support, people who can afford one of the Macs' that doesn't have a shitty inbuilt GPU can obviously afford to buy a decent Windows PC.

I am saying mac isn't a console, and it isn't specifically designed for gamers.

Well, keep doing what there doing pc and 360 games.

I agree. It doesn't make much sense to suddenly support mac if they aren't even supporting the PS3, there must be some negotiations behind this stuff.

I want them to stay the same and keep making games for PC and 360.

 Valve Software's chief Gabe Newell has unleashed a stinging attack on PS3, saying Sony should cancel the console and start all over again.

"The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels, I think It's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted," Newell reportedly said in an interview with Game Informer. 

He continued: "I'd say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a do over. Just say, 'This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it'."

It's a different story with Nintendo, however, Newell revealing he really likes "everything that Nintendo is doing." 

"The happy story is the Wii," he said. "I'm betting that by Christmas of next year, the Wii has a larger installed base than the 360. Other people think I'm crazy."

    Sweet guy.

Let's just hope he's being satirical.

Episode 3 is never coming, even if it does it can only be a let down now.

They promised they would too, those bastards.  I love that game, but got tired of the same stuff, and low player count + glitching.

I'd like to see them develop Bioware's games for them.  Let the BW crew stick to writing scripts.

He's obviously joking! How could one even take such a statement seriously when Sony is so far ahead in the console race?
 
right guys

They don't work on PS3 because of the complete lack of help & support from Sony when they were working on The Orange Box for PS3.

While I'm most concerned about where my episode 3 is right now it seems a bit harsh to tell Valve to burn in hell, in fact now I think about it I guess it's not really even my episode 3 but it would be nice to have some details on it or even information on what's caused the hold-up. I don't have a PS3 or a Mac myself so those aren't particularly major concerns for me.

This thread made me realize that I never liked a Valve game before. Weird..

Screw the PS3 (in this instance), where's my Half Life sequel? It's been years. I'm suffering withdrawal over here!

or when EA was working on it....
 
I just want Episode 3 and Portal 2 to be on the PS3.

GabeN is an idiot. The man doesn't even have a neck for God's sake.

#31 Posted by Binman88 (3684 posts) -

I would prefer they worked on HL3. It is too late for episode 3, or at least too late for another game with the same Source engine. They need to bring back Half Life and create as big an impact as they did when they first released HL2.

So their holding a grudge? Though I do admit Sony has a ''go fuck yourself'' attitude in certain aspects, which can get annoying.

I love Macs but where the fuck is Episode 3?

#34 Posted by Addfwyn (1917 posts) -

Wow, I've never seen somebody so scared of another platform getting their precious games.  Mac users being able to play games without having to have a separate hard-drive partition will not be the end of the world, I assure you. 
 
Also, you know what else?  The people who are making the mac ports obviously are not the same people that would be working on a new game.  Companies have different people working on different things.  People in charge of porting Steam to the Mac are not gonna be the same people making a new game, or even the people that make console ports.   So even if they are working on PS3 ports, it'd be totally different staffmembers working on it, most likely. 
 
Also, just to throw it out there, the days that Macs were overpriced are long since past.  Price an iMac next to a comparable Dell or somesuch someday.  You'll be surprised.

Remember Half-Life 2?

we all want episode 3, but at this point im used to waiting (and kinda lost hope) 
i am looking foward to portal 2, it being a full length game

Half Life: 4  
 
skipping 3 will really advance the story

#38 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

They're PC developers to the core. 
Source Engine isn't optimized for the PS3.
And I don't care what game they choose to do next, it's still gonna be great.  Hey, I atleast have patience. 
 
So, Valve can keep doing what they do, personally.

I want them to just skip the rest of 2, and all of 3. Then in 4 have the characters re minis about past events that you never got to play.

"That guy" is responsible for everything Valve. He created Steam and Half Life. I don't understand the Mac move, either, though.

D. Stop releasing games for the 360 and focus on making Steam for Windows and Mac better, as well as getting EP 3 done. :)

Gabe Newell hates ps3 the same way Nomura hates the 360. 

#46 Posted by august (3827 posts) -

Also keep in mind Gabe was talking smack about the PS3 back in '07 when it was a lot worse off than it is now.
