Ok Andy...I'm down with the words but really...

"relax a little and get comfortable first.", "down with the idea", "Microsoft get comfortable with it and let us do it.", "We'd love to see those relaxed.", "Microsoft to unclench a bit ", "tear down the walls of Xbox"

...Am I the only one seeing this??

Hehe, buttsex.

Anyway, I'm not that fussed. Valve games is what I have my PC for, and I've never really felt I needed Steam on my Xbox.

I hope to play TF2 with everyone. If Steamworks on the Xbox ever happens, it should coincide with a console re-release with the updates.

for as much as one may want, i dont know if tf2 would run on a console in its current state and still give some decent frames

and TF2 is on the 10GB mark now, 9.something.

And I don't think Xbox playing with PC players in TF2 would work tbh...you reach much faster with mouse and keyboard combo in that game. I've tried with gamepad, just horrible.

OT: It would be cool if they got steam on the xbox...and had same offer as with Portal 2 on PS3, buy console version and get PC version for free on steam :p

How long until Valve puts them both out of business with its own console? Four, five years tops.

That's not the craziest idea I've ever heard, not by a long shot.

i speedread it.
i have the superpower of a dirty mind.
but it would seem that Gabe wants to assfuck XBL.
this is going to go badly...
also you forgot:
"more open approach" and "make customers happy"
OT: but does this mean i can get my steam games on my xbox.
because i want to play my old Fallout 3 GOTY saves.

(Warning, bad story telling below)

As the peasants of Xboxia begged for TF2 updates, all the evil Lord Microsoft ever told them...

You shall never recieve such wealth, get back to work!

Then Valve spoke out...

"All these people, all they do is praise and love Xboxia each and every day, defending it with everything they have. You deny the very people that made your land a success! You deny them what they want, no, they need. Updates for Team Fortress 2!"

This however, only enraged Lord Microsoft even more, he sent his most loyal guards to find and kill whoever spoke out against the kingdom. Although Valve however had fled from the kingdom, taking whoever he could find that stood against Microsoft with him, they formed a rebellion, the villagers of Xboxia had hope!

Now we see where this tale of bravery will go.

Microsoft is full of idiots. I don't understand why would anyone want to pay to play online and still have the most restrictive online service known to man? It makes me wonder if Xbox live users even care that they're being ass-raped by Microsoft. I mean, they don't care about their customers. If they did, they'd let Valve update their games.

Yeah that'll totally happen! About the same time they allow mods for skyrim on xbox i.e. Never :(

Who the hell buys PC games as soon as they come out anyway? The prices usually tank within a month. Unless it's Starcraft II.

Ok, I love valve and all, but isn't it a little hypocritical that they want to be able to use their proprietary service to deliver goods within another companies proprietary service (steamworks in xbl) but they wont let other companies do the same thing in steam (origin in steam).

They do let other companies do it. Which is why you can buy games that require Games for Windows Live through Steam, for instance.

We don't know the full story of why certain EA games were pulled from Steam. Valve has been mostly quiet, except to say they hoped EA would return one day, while EA tried to make it sound like Valve was being unreasonable.

However, since Valve does allow other companies to do this, we can only assume that the case with Origin is not how EA is making it out to be, and there's more going on.

Origin is going into direct competition, and trying to put out enough exclusive content to make it seem worthwhile, while also cutting out the middle man so it can keep more of the money.

Which is exactly what Microsoft tried to do on one of their many attempts to "save" PC gaming. But still, GFWL on Steam.

Seems to be more how EA is refusing to even sell DLC or put updates for games through Steam at all.

Steamworks is the name of a notorious gay sauna in Melbourne. I can't help but laugh every time I see that name mentioned on the forums.

Hey Microsoft, take it from me. I hate Steam but he's got a point. Play a little more loose with Live and people will like you more.

I have trouble avoiding spoilers for some games.

Valve didn't pull the games out, EA did.
