Is Valve Corporation Shifting From PC To Wii U Games?

Washington based game developer Valve Corporation has recently shifted its priorities from PC based games to those running on new generation gaming consoles.

Considering this gradually increasing inclination towards console-based games, there have been a lot of speculations lately if the company, responsible for making massively popular titles such a Half Life, Counter Strike Series, and Left 4 Dead series, just to name a few, is indeed planning to join forces with Nintendo which recently unveiled its latest Wii U console at the E3, 2011.

Though there is yet to be an official confirmation from the company on the issue, but basing on what the gaming and technology website Joystiq (opens in new tab) claims, there is fair bit of possibilities of Valve Corp. being seen on board with the Japan based console giant pretty soon.

Joystiq recently asked Gabe Newell, the managing director of Valve about his opinion on Nintendo’s latest efforts. Needless to say, Mr. Newell’s response was fairly on the positive side.

"It sort of fits better into the scalability in terms of graphics performance and CPU performance, so I think it'll be a lot easier for us to fit it into our scalability model," Newell said.

"Now it's a lot easier to look at Wii U and have it fit within that framework," he added.
