Gabe Newell wants PS3 to be 'open': Video

Valve boss gives view on Sony's console, Mac and more

Valve's Gabe Newell has given his perspective on PS3 in a new, hour-long video interview, which you can watch right here.

The Valve boss - who has made some close-to-the-bone comments about Sony's system in the past - told 5BY5 that the PS3 needs to become "open like a Mac" rather than "more closed like a Gamecube".

However, he added that he found the crossover between the number of Steam customers who owned a PS3 was "interesting", commenting: "The fact that our customers are interested in the PS3 is probably the single biggest determinate in how we think about the console."

He also gives his extensive view on bringing Valve's Steam service to Mac - and his thoughts on the future of Apple's baby.

EA boss David Demartini told CVG last week that developing the PS3 version of Valve's The Orange Box was a "challenge situation" for the publisher.
