Valve’s Newell: PC ‘the centre of innovation’

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell has hailed the PC platform as the centre of innovation for the rest of the game development industry.

Newell said his company is tremendously excited about the future of PC gaming despite the firms widened remit of console and Mac game development.

His studio, renowned for its Steam distribution service and award-winning game series such as Half-Life, portrayed the PC platform as the fountainhead to which innovation spills into other games platforms.

We see [the PC] as the centre of innovation of everything thats going on, whether its microtransactions, MMOs, free-to-play, or something like CityVille which after its first month has 84 million people playing, he said.

To us, this is just an indication of why open platforms are where innovations are going to occur, he added.
