Valve: PS3 Is Like A GameCube

I've seen the PlayStation 3 compared to a lot of things in my lifetime, from a grill to a brick and everything in between. But a GameCube? That's new.

In an interview with 5BY5, Valve boss Gabe Newell has spoken of his company's decision to release online gaming platform Steam for the Mac, and why that makes sense, but releasing games for the PS3 does not.

This hate-hate relationship has gone beyond mere entertainment for the fanboys in the peanut gallery. It's getting more useful just as a guide to how much money Valve makes, when it can afford to not just abandon a platform to the wind, but delight publicly in doing so.
