If anyone had any doubt about the commitment of Valve for Linux, here is the answer, a warning to Microsoft and its latest Windows 8. The company has announced the exclusive launch of Half Life 3 for Linux .
This was announced during the Ubuntu Developer Summit by Drew Bliss, an employee of the company, later confirmed by Gabe Newell, head of Valve, who consolidates the position which I already had announced a few months ago, Valve commitment Linux expense of Windows 8.

I doubt it until I see it in Valve's own words on their site. And even then there's no smart reason they'd shoot themselves in the foot.

i don't think they have even offically annocuned half-life 3 yet , and if they did i doubt they would alienate their windows users like that.

What, will they have 1000-2000 players at a time, instead of millions? :\ Get over yourself Valve.

...that is possibly the worst attempt at passing Engrish off as an "official statement."

Besides the absurdity of, oh I don't know, neglecting the many existing Windows Vista/7 users with this move. (Oh and OS X, can't forget those guys too)

Foot? More like a bazooka in the face. I don't care what operating system you love, deliberately cutting yourself off of hundreds of millions of potential sales just for spite is an absolutely retarded decision from a financial standpoint. If they want to go Linux exclusive that's their right of course, just like its my right to toss Steam into the garbage.. I won't do business with a company that'll arbitrarily drop support for an entire range of an OS at the drop of a hat just because he has some inane outrage. Linux as an option sure, by all means, but exclusive? Highly doubtful.

This x1000. Would not happen in a million years.
Yes, Gabe has made his disdain for the new Windows publicly known, but all that means if they will not be developing games for the Windows Store.
Steam itself still runs perfectly normal as a stand-alone app on Windows 8, so would they really not release it through Steam just because they dislike the Windows Store?
Absolutely not. This article is a classic example of someone purposely writing fiction in order to get some page views. Nothing more.

With that logic, Portal 2, Counter-strike Global Offensive, and Dota 2 would've been Mac exclusives if their disdain of Windows was that high.

They're doing this to punish Windows 8. All those games were released when Windows 7 was king.

Demanding the use of common sense is now considered personal attack. I guess you were [url=http://i.imgur.com/EX5v4.jpg]offended[/url]? :rolleyes:

You are asking for a source? The comments against your own source say that this is a hoax. Do you seriously think that if this was confirmed news (or even a realistic rumour), that this wouldn't be plastered all over every tech website in existence?

Wow, this thread managed to quickly build up more BS than the topic itself. Bravo! :laugh:

Anyway, I can't see this happening, though it is cool to consider the possibility, but I doubt Gabe has testicles of that magnitude.
