    Wow. I never expected it no matter how much I wanted it. Let's see how the licensing will work, if at all.

    He shot down the rumor of an announcement not of an acquisition.

    In my opinion the man hours will just move into some other part of the process. I very much doubt the budgets will come down, it might not go up as much but I doubt it will go down.

    yea I considered this as well. It would require several generations to moved to dynamic lighting anyway, it wouldn't happen in 1

    lol.
    wow. i'm a little surprised by that I guess. But their relationship with steam I suppose does MS favours here.

    Which is better?
    xbox.
    why?
    cause it is.

    Then proceeds to express it's a personal preference not a technical one.

    This is beneath the threshold of insightful discussions.

    Think he preferred Xbox historically because it was closer to a PC development wise

    Valve's Gabe Newell: PS3 is 'A Waste of Everyone's Time'
    https://www.wired.com/2007/10/valves-gabe-new/

    Not sure why he feels the same now.

    Why won't scruffy Santa give us Half-Life 3?

    Gabe Newell also worked at Microsoft for thirteen years, he worked on the earlier versions of Windows before leaving to found Valve in 1996.

    some weird love there. MS as a company to work at has only appealed to me after Satya took over.

    Just to clarify, I'm not saying that he's some irrational Microsoft fanboy but that the 360 OS was probably more immediately familiar to him than Sony's bonkers PS3 hardware and BSD-derived OS.

    Gabe Newell's opinion hasn't been relevant for a very long time, and has rarely ever seemed all that well thought out.
    Gabe doesn't have any particular loyalty for MS in the abstract; he was one of the people freaking out to conspiracy theory levels about Windows getting a built in store when Windows 8 came out.

    Saw the snippet, his response seemed a bit like "lol I dunno maybe xbox? I don't care either way, I'm a PC guy duh".

    Maybe his response is influenced by all the difficulties Valve had to make the Orange Box work (or rather drag) on the PS3.

    Or maybe he thinks the Xbox is better, since that's actually what he said. :)

    I like his comment “We’re PC so obviously don’t have a stake in this *blushes* but yeah Xbox”
