Brett posted up yesterday about the rumour that Google may be preparing to take over Valve. While Brett (and a lot of the world) feel that Google entering the gaming market is a good thing I am one of the few who disagree.
I think Google are excellent at creating online applications and are miles ahead of most of the other companies out there, however if you have ever used any of Google’s desktop app’s you will quickly see they are just not very good in that department.
The only thing that will come out of Google owning a games publisher is a game filled to the brim with inane spam adverts and get rich quick schemes.
So it is with great happiness that I can announce that Google is not currently in negotiations to buy Valve, or any other company that we know about.
If Larry or Serge are reading this then please disregard everything above and feel free to hire me to start up your gaming department.
