Valve president Gabe Newell hints at more games for consoles

More Valve games may be coming to consoles, company co-founder and president Gabe Newell seems to have hinted. Newell was asked if ‘Steam games’ will be coming to consoles during a question-and-answers session while speaking at a public school in New Zealand. The exchange went as follows: Will Steam be putting any games on consoles, or will it just say on PC? Gabe Newell: “You will… uh… get a better idea of that by the end of this year.” While the question was phrased in reference to Steam—which is a platform—Newell was likely answering in regards to Valve’s own titles such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Portal, and Team Fortress. The last game Valve released for consoles was Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which came to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 alongside PC in August 2012.

Git Gud with Knighton – A Gaming Show By The Youth And For The Youth

Video games have boomed in India during the past few years, thanks to the accessibility of network and hardware.

So when it came to promoting a positive and inclusive gaming environment, we were supposed to take the logical steps to raise awareness, make a petition and yada yada. But did the opposite. We got a bunch of our favourite influencers and video game newbies and pitched them against  Iduex Gundyr, the first boss of Dark Souls 3.  The goal is to survive as long as they can to claim the title and ‘Git Gud’, a play at ‘Get Good’.
