Valve boss Gabe Newell thinks that the PC is the “center of innovation of everything that is going on” in gaming, reports Develop. While Valve has extended its development to the home consoles as well, Newell says he is still “tremendously excited about the future of PC gaming.”
“We see the PC as the center of innovation of everything that’s going on, whether it’s microtransactions, MMOs, free-to-play, or something like CityVille which – after its first month – has 84 million people playing,” says Newell.
“To us, this is just an indication of why open platforms are where innovations are going to occur,” he concludes.
Valve’s latest game, Portal 2, is just around the corner. Stay tuned to see how we like it.
