Valve not interested in portables, phones

"We're about people sitting on their couches or at their desks," says Valve's Chet Faliszek

We may have two emerging, powerful handhelds and the phenomenon of smart phone gaming under the spotlight right now, but legendary PC developer Valve is turning a blind eye.

When asked if gaming on the small screen tickles the Portal-maker's fancy, write Chet Faliszek told Kotaku: "We're about people sitting on their couches or at their desks."

The message is clear - Valve does PC and console games. That's it. But Faliszek went on to clarify anyway: "We haven't forayed into that space," he said of handheld gaming.

"It's just not a space our engine has been looked at or optimized for," he added.

So no hopes of Portal (and Steam) on Vita then. Soz.

It's okay though because Vita has been dominating headlines at this week's Tokyo Game Show anyway.
