EA sought to buy Valve for $1 billion – Report
Valve has always marched to the bear of their own drum. It really doesn’t come as a surprise to me that they would eschew any outside offer of purchase, even ones with $1,000,000,000 price tags from the likes of EA. Valve is, by almost all accounts, an amazing place to work, remaining somehow both independent from the industry in development, but fully tied to in a marketing and selling sense thanks to Steam. I don’t see it changing. Full (but brief) article with comments at the above link.
