Valve's Gabe Newell has been pretty open about his displeasure with the PS3 in the past, and it's clear from a recent interview that time has not softened him, calling the system "a waste of everyone's time" in Edge magazine last week. Newell continued, saying, "Investing in the Cell, investing in the SPE gives you no long-term benefits. There's nothing there that you're going to apply to anything else. You're not going to gain anything except a hatred of the architecture they've created. I don't think they're going to make money off their box. I don't think it's a good solution."
Though Newell is one of the few developers in a position to speak out on the system (we would too if our game was rocking a 98
on Metacritic), a slew of PS3 game delays
have us wondering: Is he speaking the minds of more than we know?
