Valve Would Love To See Sony’s PS3 Be “Open Like A Mac” Not “Closed Like A Game Cube”

Is the PS3 a “closed” platform not allowing developers the freedom to be creative? Valve boss Gabe Newell surely feels that way. He said he’d like to see the PS3 more open, even “like a Mac” and not shut dead like a “Gamecube”.

“Platform investments, like the Mac, are difficult because you have to be aware of what direction that platform is moving. We need to target platforms that do a better job of looking like where we want to be in a few years,” he said in a recent interview with 5BY5 (via Scrawlfx).

“We would love to see the PS3 be more open like a Mac than more closed like a Gamecube. It makes it easier to justify those investments if that were the case.”

And the PS3 hate from Valve continues. Shame, since recently the developer said that surely, down the road they’d develop games for the PS3. That’s a little less likely now isn’t it?
