Valve on Piracy and Episode 3

We ask Gabe Newell about piracy, DRM and Episode Three on PC Gamer interviews the Valve boss along with Erik Johnson and Doug Lombardi. They discuss the upsides of the Steam service in smoothing out customer relations issues and preventing piracy to the extent that they don't give it much thought. They also ask about Half-Life 2: Episode 3, the long-lost final chapter in the Half-Life 2 series. Gabe responds with silence when asked about it twice, and when pressed says: "I understand, and I have to not say anything."

It's the lack of consistency with Valve that I find annoying, if they were the type of company that kept quiet about every release than I could understand the lack of communication regarding the HL series.

With other IP's they seem to have no problem spilling the beans, look at portal 2 for instance, I'm deliberately avoiding any info about the game now as they are in danger of spoiling it for me.
