Yeah I saw some people talking about this. It's weird considering Gabe is praising the Wii and talking so much crap about the PS3, when HL2 is being developed for the PS3, yet Valve has nothing planned for the Wii.

BTW I see no source... just a poster quoting him from an interview thats no where to be found... and no its not in the latest issue since I get them. It's also funny if this were true considering that Valve will be releasing multiple titles for the PS3.... so either its fake or Gabe is an idiot when it comes to business and wants to waste money on a console thats a "disaster".

Watch the interview http://valve.1up.com/flat/Themeweek/Valve/video6.html

The horrible thing about it is that he isn't the only major developer saying Sony lost focus, John C has done the same.

That doesnt confirm this article or answer kaltek's question. That was taped back in 2005 IIRC, before the PS3/360/Wii even launched. Gabe has always been scared of multicore processors. So it wouldnt be any surprise if hes still preaching it.

Don't get me wrong, this isnt hate on Gabe. Hes done great things for PC gaming I'd say; even if HL2 was a little overrated imo. But none the less the guy can deliver some good games. That said, he hasnt done crap for the console scene besides quick port overs. PC rooted developers will probably hate the 360/PS3 processors but obviously they will choose the lesser of two evils. While other developers who have been in console gaming for a while adjust accordingly to the change in console hardware with minor complaining. Ubisoft, EA, Sony, Microsoft, Kojima, bungie, and many other big 3rd party console developers have all praised the new changing architecture.

Yeah but it did show me that the man is quite capable of making such comments. Hadn't seen that interview before, the man speaks his mind.

True, Gabe never said in that interview that the PS3 is a total disaster. He does however go at length to why the PS3 is a difficult platform to develop for.

While Gabe is a really large guy, he is also very bright. He used to work for Microsoft and funded the original half life completely with his own money. He as built valve up to be the company that it is. But it is true, he has not developed really anything significant for any console, it is basically all PC based.
