Valve still hopes for Steam on Xbox 360

PC games kingpin Valve believes there is still hope for its digital portal Steam to launch on Microsoft’s Xbox system.

Chet Faliszek, a writer at the Washington studio, told Develop that the final decision was Microsoft’s to make – suggesting that Valve’s existing deal to incorporate Steam on PS3 is not binding to any exclusivity.

Asked by Develop whether Steam arrive on Microsoft’s living-room console, Faliszek replied: Maybe, we’ll see. That’s something Microsoft will has to decide. There’s some things going on with Portal 2 right now, but we’ll see”.

Valve’s oft-cited ‘games as a service’ initiative has in the past clashed with Microsoft’s own Xbox philosophy.
