Gabe Newell: PS3 owners to see the benefits of Steamworks integration in September
Gabe Newell had a lot to say about the PS3 version of Portal 2. For starters, we know he is happy that Sony allowed Valve to use Steamworks with PS3, which is a big deal since consoles are supposed to be closed platforms.
He said that Portal 2 DLC will be released on September and PS3 owners will see the benefits of Steamworks integration. Newell was displeased with the XBox 360 situation but wanted Steamworks on the platform to support Xbox 360 gamers.
“We certainly can deliver a lot of value to customers to the degree to which we have those capabilities. With the PS3 obviously we made a lot more progress with that. The PS3 customers of Portal 2 are going to start to see the benefits of that with Portal 2 DLC coming out in September. So we’d really like to be able to do that for Xbox customers as well,” he said in an interview with EuroGamer.
