Gaben made a good choice getting out of the game development business and going into sales. He also made a good choice never selling out Valve.

Hes still a greedy bastard, this just shows how his over charging developers 30 percent to host their games on steam. is way to much if hes raking in that kind of profit.

It's not necessarily profit. Gabe doesn't have $55B cash, he has the majority ownership of a company that's worth $55B (the majority ownership, not the company, which I believe Microsoft offered $1B for like 10 years ago but is now clearly somewhere around $100B.)

Years ago, before Steam and Digital Distribution, a 30% cut from revenue was nothing more than a wet dream for developers. Publishers took nearly everything. And if you were a selfpublished dev like Looking Glass, you had to deal with traditional distribution channels, which took nearly three quarters of your revenue.

But hey, Gabe is a greedy bastard, because he is only offering the biggest digital distribution channel of the world with 1.5 million new users every month and a robust content distribution, patch and multiplayer infrastructure. 30% is NOTHING!

Did he? Personally he could have become way more richer years ago by selling Valve.

But i guess he already has enough money for ten lifetimes and he just has no interest in selling Valve, because he still has too much fun running his own company.
