Gabe Newell Debunks “Apple Visits Valve” Rumor
Remember when we told you that Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Valve? Well, as it turns out, this rumor is entirely untrue and the person who debunked it is none other than Valve CEO Gabe Newell himself.
In a podcast interview with Seven Day Cooldown, The Valve boss squashes the rumor — though he admits he wishes it was true.
We actually, we all sent mail to each other, going, “Who’s Tim Cook meeting with? Is he meeting with you? I’m not meeting with Tim Cook.” So we’re… it’s one of those rumors that was stated so factually that we were actually confused.
No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were! We have a long list of things we’d love to see Apple do to support games and gaming better. But no, we didn’t meet with Tim Cook. He seems like a smart guy, but I’ve never actually met him.
Well, there you have it. So there’s not going to be an Apple/Valve console…at least not yet anyway. Of course, this doesn’t mean they can’t meet in the future, right?
Do you want Valve to team up with Apple to develop the “ultimate” console or would you rather Valve do it themselves so the platform can be as “open” as they want it to be?
