Gabe Newell – Portal 2 sold more on the PC

Posted By | On 30th, Aug. 2011

Compared to Left4Dead which sold a lot more on Xbox 360 than the PC, exactly the reverse happened with Portal 2. The game sold a lot more on PC than PS3 and Xbox 360 revealed Valve boss, Gabe Newell.

It’s not confirmed whether the PC version included the free game that was provided along with the PS3 version but still, it’s an impressive achievement nonetheless.

“Portal 2 did better on the PC than it did on the consoles; Left 4 Dead did better on the consoles than it did on the PC. So you know we don’t try to guess, because we’re not sure what value there is to guessing. We’ve never had a situation where we said, ‘We really, really want to build something that is more popular for the console guys’,” said Newell.

“Because usually we have a bunch of other higher priority problems we want to solve. So we’re glad that people want to play our games wherever they want to play.”

Portal 2 released earlier this year to great critical success and is widely regarded as one of the best games ever.
