    iD Software, Crytek, Activision, Sega, Ubisoft & erm that other one that does Unreal engine games...you know the ones...they just do shooters now but used to do Jill of the Jungle...yeah Epic Games. Forget those, Valve are interested in Wii U!

    Holy $%^&*($^@. I'd love to see Valve games on a Nintendo console/portable!
    Love almost all of their games, except for Team Fortress 2. It just doesn't do it for me.

    I wouldn't call being 50% more powerful than 4.5 year old hardware being significantly more powerful and closer to the CPU and graphics performance that they would want. Being a PC developer (having been? They seem undecided on where they are headed), I still don't think this is gonna be enough for them.

    Regardless, neat news. I wouldn't be surprised to see Portal 1 and 2 get ported to the Wii U, along with a port of the Orange Box.

    Cool. Nintendo may have the pleasure of having Half Life 3 when it comes out in 2053

    I'm not convinced; back in 2006 they said they were interested in the Wii as well, but my Orange Box Wii port still hasn't been released...

    This time around, Nintendo has a better chance though. When the Wii U releases it's the most powerful console around - even though it probably won't be for more than a few years. If developement is easy enough, I don't see why Valve wouldn't invest in porting their games to it.

    On the other hand, it might take a couple of years before the next Valve game for console (Dota 2 will be PC only), and the Wii U might be slightly dated by then. We'll have to wait and see.

    You made a typo. You wrote "2053" when you clearly meant "2153". Duh.

    I really hope the Wii U is good for Nintendo. I don't care that it isn't really a "Next Gen" console, but as long as they release good games, I don't care what they look like. I still play N64 and Gamecube games for godsakes.

    Agree - WHERE IS EPISODE 3 ?????

    & can you imagine playing 3-way Co-op Portal (2 using the 6" screen, while another using the main screen ??)

    Pretty sure that good 'ol two person co-op is as good as it is ever going to get for Portal. Otherwise, they would have to add another Portal gun, three person co-op to every other version, and it would just be a mess.

    A total Half Life Collection with 1 & 2, Episode 1-2, Opposing Force and Blue Shift would be lovely. I guess they backed out of Wii when 3rd party games weren't doing that great just like when they did Half Life for Dreamcast.

    Playing these games on the consoles is just so damn rigid, Portal is fine seeing its a slow paced game but I hate playing FPS with twin sticks. With a Wiimote it'll be second to mouse.

    Maybe Dota 2 will come out first, though at the moment its PC & Mac only. Only just found out that L4D1 or 2 hasn't even made PS3 so to me its a big thing to see them come out to say that they're interested.

    Also Episode 3 is the new Duke Nukem Forever...only if it comes out it'll be good and will actually be akin to the other games in the series rather than a bad cover version resembling nothing of the original games.

    Hooray~
    perhaps ol' Valve will release the Orange Box on the WiiU? Highly doubt that though..
    Would be nice to play TF2 on a console where it isn't completely gimped.

    the title is so unfair... its like saying, everyone sucks or their opinions dont matter ... except valve
    ya okay they make amazing games but others do deserve respect. anyways
    valve = unique games
    wii u = unique controls

    valve + wii u = Uniquity at its maxim
