Korean Valve Bid?

"Will Asian online game publishers Nexon and NCsoft buy blockbuster publisher Valve?" asks VentureBeat in an article based on a rumor in a "major" Korean publication. Joongang News reports Nexon and Valve met in Hawaii yesterday to discuss a possible merger. Nexon was also involved in acquisition rumors earlier this year when reports emerged it was bidding on EA. Valve's Gabe Newell has expressed no interest in selling the company when previous such rumors have emerged, but neither company has commented on this report yet.

Remember this very important thing:

Gabe is obsessed with employee health. (his word not mine)


Would selling the company affect employee health in a negative way? Yes.

So it won't happen. End of story. No other factors matter (post #7 has other reasons why this won't happen)

Valve could still buyout other companies, but so far they've shown no desire to do so, and I don't think they'd start with this one.
