Valve Needs Better Coders

Remember Valve, the extremely talented developers who said that coding for the PlayStation 3 was too hard so they werent going to bother?

Well, apparently theyve seen the value of putting their tremendously successful titles out on the platform. Joystiq have mentioned that, in a chat with Doug Lombardi (VP – Marketing), theyve uncovered a newfound desire from the company to start developing for the PlayStation 3.


we have to get people under our roof who are dedicated, talented PS3 guys and then all bets are off. We can take the same sort of strides and get the quality out of the box and offer the same support post-launch on that platform, as well.

Lombardi also stated that the reason for Valves previous lack of faith in the PS3 was the fact that they just didnt have the right personnel to develop for the system. This is an issue which they are seemingly keen to address, inviting people to contact them for jobs if they have the talent to help the company onto the PlayStation platform.

With a few notable redundancies from big talented studios there should be no shortage of applicants and hopefully this means that, as well as some of those talented devs finding new employment, we will get some of Valves future creative genius.
