During a keynote speech at the New York Games for Change conference happening right now, Joystiq asked
Valve's Gabe Newell about his thoughts on the recently unveiled Nintendo Wii U.
"Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation," he responded. "It sort of fits better into the scalability in terms of graphics performance and CPU performance, so I think it'll be a lot easier for us to fit it into our scalability model. We've always loved Nintendo."
While most of the world still scratches their head at Wii U, knowing there are progressive studios like Valve looking at it gives us hope we may see some cool stuff from it yet.
"Now it's a lot easier to look at Wii U and have it fit within [our] framework," he added.
