While Valve has always admired Nintendo, the company remains distant from the Wii for an obvious reason, the lack of power under the hood. Has the recent Wii U announcement piqued Valve’s interest? You betcha.
Speaking to Joystiq at the Games For Change event in NYC, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell says the Wii U may be a good fit within the company’s development framework, referencing improvements on the graphics and CPU side:
Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation. 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.
Now it’s a lot easier to look at Wii U and have it fit within that framework.
