I wonder if Valve will be tempted to cash in on their success at some point and list on the stock market.

Just Steam that is, the industry grew from $13 billion to $18 billion.
Carefully now, don't go confusing units sold with revenue growth, I notice they don't post financial data, I'd wager a large part of that unit growth is down to the massive sales they have rather than new titles, there will be next to fuck all margin on those sale items

Like I said, Steam only, but the PC market in general is still growing.

You will concede that PC gaming is far from dead for Valve though yes?

I suspect they have big plans tbh, they will be moving into tablet gaming soon IMHO, and they've been experimenting with free to play gaming with micro-transactions, who knows what they are planning in truth but they won't rest on their laurels.

also i wonder how much boom is down to faster internet speeds, shops not selling games and STEAM and publishers, pricing games at astronomical prices

you could get brand new games for 15-20 at GAME now they are like 30+ on STEAM but PC GAMING IS booming

its a kansas city shuffle

also I bet the boom in sales is from the daily deals and Christmas sale, more sales in that period than the rest of the year

Absolutely, they own pc gaming, but if consoles are a bigger market with significantly higher margins & there are 3 new consoles on the way within 18 months does anyone seriously believe there focus is not turned in that direction now ?

They don't need to do much any more to keep their market share on pc, distribution model etc is up & running so I would expect them to simply port next gen console titles onto steam for the pc guys, I seriously doubt they will ignore consoles again as much as they did this gen

Challenge they face of course is steam v xbox live, those two systems can't be integrated but as ex MS guys you can bet valve are working with ms on how to do it

I bet if they were a public company their shareholders would have demanded they release games more often, like Half Life. I suppose the risk is that the quality would suffer, although plenty of good games have come from Activision / EA etc. so it isn't necessarily so.

How much have they ignored consoles? I dunno? I thought they'd released all their games on Xbox and PS3 for the some years now.
