He already said he has NO INTEREST in selling the company.

No, what he said was, he would let the company die before being sold to "some giant company that wants to cash us out and wait two or three years to have our employment agreements terminate." That is carefully worded to allow for many things, such as mergers on his terms. It's an important distinction to be made, although I still do an "lolwut" in reaction to this particular news tidbit.

In that same interview he also said that there was a better chance that Valve would disintegrate with it's independent-minded workers scattering than there was that the company would ever be sold.

I can't see Valve ever being sold or merging with any other company. They are worth billions, have a very different corporate culture than any other company around and have no incentive at all to go down that road. There is quite literally no upside for them in any merger or acquisition. I suspect Valve will be independent until the day Gabe Newell dies at which point it will "disintegrate" just as he predicted.
