Valve Denies Nexon Rumor

There's a Valve interview on VG247 talking with Valve's Chet Faliszek about life at Valve, and what they are up to, including a discussion of VR tech. On a related note, GamesIndustry International has a response from Chet to yesterday's rumor that Nexon was bidding to acquire Valve, to which he responds: "There's no thoughts about that - everyone likes working there, we like working together we like the culture we have and the way it works because of all the parts of it. We're not changing any of that, we're pretty happy. We're doing OK." When asked if he could explicitly deny the rumor, he responded: "Yeah!"

I don't think Valve is "above" selling...I just think it is going to have to wait until Gabe and the other core people are bored with what they are doing and decide to go do something else. At this point in the careers, and after this much success, they strike me as people who wouldn't want to work for a bunch of executives and stockholders.

Yes they are. It has nothing to do with boredom, it has to do with gabe's obsession with employee health.

And why the heck would you be bored in a company where every employee can do wtf ever interests and/or amuses them? Where gabe says "oh thats all?" when someone talks about how it will cost a million to buy a new lab setup for someone.
