Portal 2 Sells 3 Million

Gabe Newell says Portal 2 has sold more than three million copies since the puzzle/platformer sequel was released, reports Joystiq, saying Valve's managing director stated this at the Games For Change conference here in the big apple. Which platforms this comprises and whether this figure counts Steam sales are not clear.

At least consider working on stuff that your customers want, instead of stuff thats interesting to you.

You know, Dev, you're right. Developers should do what customers want, not what's interesting to them. After all, doing what customers want gave us a billion soulless Call of Duties, right?

And isn't that what "marketing suits" demand, that studios make artistic concessions and work not on what they'd enjoy but what customers want and therefore will sell? Customers want goofy sidekicks, quick, someone bring back Superfly Johnson!
