In a recent interview
with 1Up.com Valve's co-founder and resident PS3 hater, Gabe Newell, has stated that the company needs to start thinking about development for the PS3. "I think we need to do a good job with supporting the PS3 with the Source engine," he says. Previously, Newell has been vocally anti-PS3
, but is now saying that "we'll, over time, be directly more and more supporting the PS3 as our bandwidth allows us to."
So does that mean we can expect to see a PS3 version of Zombie-pocalyse-em-up Left 4 Dead
? Newell states that Valve doesn't "have the bandwidth. For The Orange Box
, EA did the PS3 version. They're interested in getting a PS3 version done. We just have to figure out where the resources can come from." Probably not until after the 360 and PC versions, then. Still, it's great that Valve is going to be looking into PS3 development at some
point in the future. We're just hoping it's sooner, rather than later.
