Will Valve ever release a game for a Nintendo platform? There has been Portal-themed content in third party games on Nintendo platforms, but that's about as good as it gets. It's clear Valve has a fondness for Nintendo, as we've covered many of their statements in the past. Now today, we have Valve's Gabe Newell saying he's jealous of Nintendo in certain ways.
"We've always been a little bit jealous of companies like Nintendo. When Miyamoto is sitting down and thinking about the next version of Zelda or Mario, he's thinking what is the controller going to look like, what sort of graphics and other capabilities. He can introduce new capabilities like motion input because he controls both of those things. And he can make the hardware look as good as possible because he's designing the software at the same time that's really going to take advantage of it. So that is something we've been jealous of, and that's something that you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently."
