Admission: “We Messed Up On PS3″ Says Valve

Valve admitted it could have done a way better job on PS3 and that the next time around, they would like to give PS3 owners the “best possible experience.”

The Orange Box was a huge success on Xbox 360, a game developed by Valve, but when the time came to port the title over to PS3, Valve outsourced that job to EA, which to this day many criticize.

Hence, the game received low marks from reviewers, citing incessant frame rate issues.

“We thought the Orange Box didn’t put our best foot forward with the PS3 community,” Chet Faliszek, Valve writer told CVG. “We don’t want to do something like that again on the PS3. We want to give PS3 owners the best possible experience.

Some of that will come from us learning and getting better. Before we can go onto the PS3 again, we want to make sure we’re better at developing for it.”

Well, you know what the say, confession is the best medicine.
