Valve will begin shipping games again, has been jealous of Nintendo

With Valve's new expertise in software and hardware development, it will be interesting to see how the company plans to take a leaf out of Nintendo's book, hopefully, the wait won't be too long.

Valve's Gabe Newell has revealed in a recent press briefing that he's very jealous of Nintendo and their work ethic when it comes to video games and consoles.

Last year in a Reddit AMA, Newell did confirm that Valve is working on at least one fully single-player games, in addition to confirming three VR games later in the year.

Talking about the investment Valve has made in hardware and technology, Newell said that there was a "big hole" left in the market after the release of DOTA 2 that PUBG stepped in to fill.

This is the first time we are hearing about the game's lifetime Steam revenue in comparison to other games on the platform.

Pitt Fires Head Coach Kevin Stallings After Disastrous Season
If Tubby Smith is fired at Memphis, the list of high-major men's basketball coaches fired just two seasons in would add one more. There's a culture and history of winning basketball at Pitt that certainly should help make it an attractive position.

It's important to note that Newell said games, so that should mean Valve will be shipping something after Artifact. He can introduce new capabilities like motion input because he controls both of those things. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

It's impossible for Valve to take about software with fans immediately jumping to Half-Life 3. "So that is something we've been jealous of, and that's something that you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently". That is something which most of us were already expecting.

Valve or Newell did not say anything about Half-Life 3 at any point during the presentation. Now that's all out of the way, Valve feels it's in a space where it can flex its creative muscles once more and now has the hardware knowledge to create experiences that are rich and interactive "Now there's pretty much no project in the hardware space that we wouldn't be comfortable taking on", Newell explained.

Valve isn't done with hardware though, but now it'll go "hand-in-hand with software design", meaning you should really keep an eye on what Valve is up to in the coming months.
