Valve Randomly Slams the PS3

January 15th, 2007 . by jb

ValveIn what I'd file under the "should keep to yourself" category, the chief of software over a Valve has decided to unleash a verbal barrage on the PS3.

With such dandies like:

        "The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels"

        "I think It's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted."

        "…they should just cancel it and do a do over"

The same person then goes on to say that Nintendo is doing everything right and that they are the true success story.

Now I have my own criticisms of both consoles, but going as far as calling a "do over" Sony is a rather dumb statement.  Sony would go so much further under if they just stopped supporting a $600 piece of equipment months after it's launch.

And to say Nintendo is doing everything right is just the opposite extreme taken.  Nintendo is far from doing everything right.  With the usual post-launch game drought coming up, Nintendo looks like they haven't learned at all from the N64 or the Gamecube.  Not to mention that online play is completely nonexistent at this point.

For this guy's sake, I hope he was drunk, as his credibility in the gaming industry just got hit for massive damage.
