As most of you know by now, we aren't the biggest fans of Valve Software…primarily because they have egos the size of Montana and have offered lame excuses as to why they won't develop for the PlayStation 3.

And in all honesty, we don't really care if they do; it's not like they pump out 25 games a year; somehow, we'll find a way to survive without Left 4 Dead and the next Half-Life installment. That being said, however, it seems Valve may be coming around to the idea of PS3 development: according to Joystiq , Valve's Doug Lombardi said the studio was "up on the idea" of designing games for Sony's new machine; they just want to wait until they've hired a few decent PS3 coders. He made this statement at the recent Left 4 Dead 2 event in London yesterday, which, by the way, celebrates a game that isn't coming to the PS3. Lombardi cited the Metacritic scores of The Orange Box and how the PS3 version clearly wasn't up to snuff and added:

"…we have to get people under our roof who are dedicated, talented PS3 guys and then all bets are off. We can take the same sort of strides and get the quality out of the box and offer the same support post-launch on that platform, as well."

This is a good sign that Valve may soon announce a project that is destined for the PS3, and this should satisfy fans of the developer. On the other hand, and we hate to beat a dead horse here, but we have to bring your attention to the last Valve statement concerning the PS3. Essentially, they said the PS3 was just "too complex," which we immediately countered with the belief that they didn't have the talent in the studio to handle the intricate machine. Die-hard fans laughed at the idea, but uh…I think we're vindicated now.

not talanted enough?
so how did they make the best FPS shooter ever.
and one of the most popular games online still today after how many years.
im talking about half life and counter strike.
still to this day decades after half life was out we STILL dont have a game that had as much impact as that.
and i can only think of 1 game that had a deeper story MGS4 thats it.
they may be lazy pathetic wankers, but that dont mean they have no talent.
develop for the ps3 i couldent care less, as long as half life stays as a PC exclusive.
a watered down copy of crysis 2 is bad enough.

Smart move in their part.Now they wouldn't have to waste their so-called precious valuable time learning the PS3 and maybe make some ps3 owners happy by making a PS3 Left4dead,Half-life or whatever else they make(not that I care).

Not interested in the crap they have to offer. They should stay with the 360 and PC because ps3 owners won't buy any of their games.

Those "talented PS3 guys" were snapped up by Sony way back when Valve was complaining. I hope they can settle for second rate now that they've come around.

What do they develop besides FPS? Anything worthwhile that we could possibly say has potential?

I think Valve realized how much money they are missing out by dismissing the PS3 platform. It's a business just like Metal Gear opening to all platforms.

If they really do find some talented PS3 developers, then i see no reason not to give some support. Although i dont like Valve much as of late, there is no reason to ignore talented developers… that would simply be a waste imo.

Ben has never once threatened to ban my IP address. So you're just lying with that comment. I'm not going to deny there have been several articles in the past Ben and I have differed in opinion on but I do believe this site is open to multiple viewpoints and freedom of expression. Not to mention any friction between Ben and I has nothing to do with your comments towards me.

Oh and you still haven't given one invalid point I've made. I guess you're just smoke and mirrors when you throw out accusations at people.

constructive comments are something that is rare for you and don't disagree or lie because you know that as well…

Ah I see you'll take the time to falsely accuse me of things and go off subject by personally attacking me but you're unable to take the time to recall one intense to back up your comments, how convenient. I'd ask what trouble you speak of but you've already demonstrated you're nothing more than a moot point.

You may like to continue to believe you speak for everyone else but you most definitely do not speak for me so I suggest you stop trying to tell me what to do.

SarahPalinMILF

"don't have the time to recall one intense to back up your comments, how convenient"…

Little boy, i think the word you are looking for is incident, not intense…point a, you're stupid.

And the only way to go back and find an exact moment of you're guilt, which is what you're asking me to do, would be to individually go through each and every article since the time you first posted. Why won't I do that…because I really don't give a f*ck about a little immature flamer such as yourself…All that matters is that I have seen Ben warn you…even earlier on in this article you hypocrite, and as for saying I'm speaking for everyone…I never said that…you did. although I'm sure at this point most would agree with me you ignorant f*cking prick…

"Little boy, i think the word you are looking for is incident, not intense…point a, you're stupid."

Actually the word I meant to type was "instance", so you're wrong. Way to point out a simple typing mistake and try to use it as a benchmark for my intelligence.

"And the only way to go back and find an exact moment of you're guilt, which is what you're asking me to do, would be to individually go through each and every article since the time you first posted. "

Again you're refusing back up your accusation with evidence.

"Why won't I do that…because I really don't give a f*ck about a little immature flamer such as yourself"

You clearly cared enough to single me out in a particular posting.

"All that matters is that I have seen Ben warn you"

That is correct Ben did warn me. I've never denied that Ben and I have had our differences. However it's been about the amount of postings, not the actual content. So you're still wrong about the validity of my comments. That is unless you have evidence but you've continuously refused to back up your claims.

"as for saying I'm speaking for everyone…I never said that…you did"

Actually your own words were "LimitedVertigo…no one cares what you think" you're clearly speaking for everyone with that comment.

See how easy it is to find evidence to support a claim? Now I suggest you do the same or end this idiotic conversation. I simply continue to remind you of your faults and you refuse to accept them. Thank you for the explicit words you choose to direct towards me and happy 4th of July.

"See how easy it is to find evidence to support a claim?"

Congragulations you searched for a whole three seconds by looking at the post above you…because thats exactly the same as going through every article every posted for the last three months and looking for a comment…you really are a retard…I almost find it hard to believe that you are so belligerent and ignorant…

And now I'm telling you…watch closely…NO ONE GIVES A SH*T ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY…NOT ONE PERSON ON THIS WEBSITE…GO AHEAD PROVE ME WRONG…SOMEONE COME TO YOUR DEFENSE…

If you're going to cuss someone out and accuse them of a very specific wrong than the least you can do is offer some proof to your claims. Basic logic explains the burden is on the accuser to offer some form of evidence which supports their argument. You not only refuse to do so but continue to go off on me with no basis than your own personal bias.

In regards to your last paragraph I see you've decided to retract your earlier comment about not talking for others since you've gone ahead and done that again.

I don't care if anyone likes or dislikes what I write in an online forum devoted to videogames. I'm simply here to enjoy the latest news concerning PS3 products and read what others have to say. You clearly have a problem with me and instead of ignoring me like any mature person would you've continued to attack me with profanity laced comments.

My repeated stance is merely a byproduct of your refusal to offer one valid point in favor of your argument. It's one thing to refuse to explain yourself but now you have the nerve to criticize my comments which are nothing more than my continued explanation in the face of your hollow claims.

I will gladly admit my faults if you would offer an example. You've yet to do this and I continue to explain it to you.

I'd like to point out this entire argument between us started with your decision to personally attack me after I offered nothing more than my opinion on two games.

Using your logic you've decided to throw at me at the end of your post I'd guess you're the type of person that labels people not based on fact but on blind reason.

If you continue to post a dozen more comments which:

-falsely accuse me
-lack any valid proof to support your claims
-contain false logic
-have no purpose other than to insult me
-side step any questions I have in counter to your comments

then I will reiterate my stance since you're either too ignorant or stubborn to acknowledge and address it.

I keep asking you to explain yourself and offer at least one example in favor of your argument while you continue to refuse. Who has the idiotic point?

Again you've decided you speak for everyone else and now you consider your opinion of me to be a fact.

You're not telling me anything that is fact. Unlike you I've had the decency to respond to your comments with explanations. You just continue the same pattern. You complain about my refusal to accept your empty accusations and follow that up with profanity and name calling.

Only a fool starts an argument with someone then refuses to explain his side. And again I'd like to point out this all began because you decided to cuss me out for simply offering my opinion on two games.

Ben has never threatened to ban my ip address. Nor have I ever "flamed". I've commented quite a bit on several articles and for that I've apologized. I am not in the wrong here. This fool continues to harass me and I simply counter his comments as anyone else would when they believe they have been wronged.

I agree it's getting ridiculous, this joke of a poster does nothing but cuss me out and complain because I refuse to accept his empty claims. Every single reply of mine has been respectful and had a point. Don't fault me for attempting to have someone explain themselves.
