Valve: PS3 Is Incredibly Important To Us

Valve, makers of the upcoming Portal 2 and a plethora of other popular games, have been known for making rather nasty remarks about Sony and their little baby, the PlayStation 3. In an interesting turn of events, Valve Software is now saying the the PlayStation 3 is "incredibly important" to the company.

Speaking with CVG, Project Manager Erik Johnson discussed their current stand on the platform, saying that they have mistreated PS3 users in times past with The Orange Box and its horrible port that was plagued with bugs and shoddy frame rates.

"PS3 is incredibly important to us," he said. "We don't feel that the PS3 users had the Valve experience that we like to deliver.

"So it that case it's incredibly important to us; we kind of fix everything wrong in the products that we delivered before for the PS3, which we thought were good but weren't quite the Valve experience."

Valve also revealed on GTTV that Steam will be heading towards the PlayStation 3 soon, all is well on the "business side" and all that's needed is to make it work.

"We're looking forward to solving that and having Steam on that platform also is incredibly valuable to us," he said.

"In a lot of ways that is the way we define a customer having a good experience because it's the way that we keep talking to that customer over time."
