Don't mean today to be pick on PS3 day but Gabe Newell has called out the PlayStation 3 saying it's a total disaster and that Sony should just do it over. He does gush over the Wii. This is one of the stronger opinions against the PS3 from a developer that I have seen.
"The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels, I think It's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers and what developers wanted. I'd say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a "do over". Just say, "This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it". The happy story is the Wii. I'm betting that by Christmas of next year, the Wii has a larger installed base than the 360. Other people think I'm crazy. I really like evertyhing that Nintendo is doing."
