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?
