Valve Boss Now a Billionaire

It seems Valve, the company that owns digital platform Steam and makers of hit games such as: Portal, Left 4 Dead and Half-Life is quite successful. Just how successful? Try $3 billion worth!

In Forbes’ latest list of the world’s richest people, they estimate that Valve is worth at the very least a cool $3 billion.

Seeing as Valve’s co-founder Gabe Newell owns more than 50 percent of the corporation, Forbes has pegged his net worth to be around $1.5 billion dollars! This places him at 854th out of 1,226 global billionaires…not bad, no?

Do you know what this means? It means that one of the most affluent people in the planet amassed his fortune by working on videogames! Tell that to your friends or family the next time they tell you that you’re wasting your time.

I think a congrats to Mr. Newell are in order, no?
