Gabe Newell favored Xbox Series X
One of the presenters questioned Newell about the console he would buy later this year. The Valve executive was clear and assured without hesitation that, if he had to choose, he would choose Xbox Series X.
Newell did not elaborate on his answer, simply stating that Microsoft’s proposal seems better to him. Later, the manager clarified that he and his projects have nothing to do with the console career for now.
« I have no participation in that race. Obviously we do most of our development on personal computers, but of the 2 it would definitely go with Xbox, » Newell stressed.
