A lot of hardcore developers said they had big plans in store for the Wii U at E3. Perhaps one of the most interesting developers to join the party has come a little late. Valve, the studio that brought you Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, and Portal, seems to be enamored with the Wii U, and may in fact be bringing its games to the platform sometime in the future.
Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve, said that he was impressed by the Wii U’s power, stating: “it seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation.” He then went on to say that the Wii U itself meshes with Valve’s “scalability model.” What that means, we aren’t sure, but we really hope that he was talking about Valve’s continuous ability to provide post-release support for their games. Knowing that the Wii U would support downloadable content would make the system that much cooler.
