Valve still not interested in the PS3

Don’t expect Valve Corporation to take Left 4 Dead 2 to Sony’s  videogame console. In a recent interview with GTTV, Valve managing director Gabe Newell dismissed any and all PS3-related rumors when asked by host Geoff Keighley if the studio was trying to understand or learn how to tackle the shiny black hardware.

“Uh, no. Not in any real way,” Newell says.

At least once a month we hear someone from Valve dismissing the hardware. Painted as hard to develop for, Valve has consistently said it isn’t interested in fiddling with its innards. There’s nothing new here. Valve hates the PS3 and any respectable clown wears a red nose and huge shoes; confirmed. Well, until next month (or a week, whatever) it will remain so. Like a good clown, Valve is constantly entertaining. Pie flinging never gets old, but the custard can get ratty from time to time.
