Gabe Newell who owns more than 50% of Valve is worth more than $1.5 billion, according to Forbes. Valve is worth $3 billion, so you can probably come to the conclusion yourself.

Valve was founded in 1996 by Gabe Newell, and has come a long way after having recently shipped Portal 2. Valve’s Steam, a digital distribution platform is very successful and is the reason behind these profits.

Newell was already a millionaire after he left Microsoft, and now he’s worth billions. Talk about a transformation.

    Good for Gabe! He’s one of nicer people in this world, who actually cares for his customers. If Gabe decides to make his “GabeCube”…??? I’m in… (bye, bye, Microsoft!)

    Gabe is really starting to resemble Santa Claus… 😕

    Gabe really represents what a good game company / entity should be. If he/Valve expands on the PSN / Steam mashup, they could really give MS a run for their money.
