I say Bull****, Newell is constantly full of **** as of late. TF2 has recieved tons of updates that the X360 version did not (games are completly different now) so why is L4D any different? It's not like theres crossplatform play...

Hell wheres the PS3 support he talked about? Originally he hated the PS3 and then admited that valve needs to support it... yet still not support for PS3 gamers.

The fat tub of lard needs to go back to his bowl of chicken...

From E3, they dont seem too keen on the PS3 still.

I snuck in a bit asking why Valve won’t develop for the PS3. It’s not because they’re a small studio, it’s because the PS3 is too complex. Game designer Tom Leonard had this to say:
Quote:
The PC and the 360 are just more straightforward. 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 their platform. [...] I didn’t come into this business in the 90s because of some technical fetish. I came in because I wanted to give people experiences that made them have fun.

That's what I saw... yet Newell in the past said they were going to shift to PS3 development because they couldn't overlook that market anymore.

If we were going for the Wii we'd have to go for a whole new game that's designed for that platform. That's an expensive proposition and riskier than just getting some good PS3 developers on board.
It's something that we're still evaluating, but certainly the install base is the thing that rules all. If there's an opportunity there you've got to take it seriously.
The PS3 is not that complicated that they couldnt shift focus of some of their team to port. Sony has developed many tools to make the transition from PC to PS3 easy...

Sounds like theyre done evaluating then, and chose to not bother with it.

I don't know, maybe their agreement with EA forces them to treat both versions equal, or maybe there is very few people playing TF2 on the 360, but there are much more playing L4D that deserve updates too.

They are a business, they are not stupid and they want money. I'm sure if PS3 development would be profitable for Valve they would have adopted it.

If that means delays and quality compromises for PC and 360 versions, then thanks, but no thanks. That development tools that Sony has created may be good to create games from scratch, but not to port an engine that is several years old and is heavily optimized for DirectX architecture with no cross platform in mind.
