Compounding Valve’s recent launch of Mac and company President continuing distaste for the PS3, a recent interview with 5BY5 came with some interesting advice for Sony’s home console. Valve President Gabe Newell recommends the black box be “…more open like a Mac…” rather than what it currently is, which Newell describes as “…closed like a Gamecube.”
“Platform investments, like the Mac, are difficult because you have to be aware of what direction that platform is moving. We need to target platforms that do a better job of looking like where we want to be in a few years,” said Newell. “We would love to see the PS3 be more open like a Mac than more closed like a Gamecube. It makes it easier to justify those investments if that were the case.”
