The lights are on
Take a minute and imagine what the games industry would look like if Valve partners with Apple.
According to a report by Apple Insider, CEO Tim Cook visited Valve's headquarters in Bellevue, Wash. today, raising speculation the two companies could be collaborating on a project down the road.
Assuming the report is true, Cook and Valve president Gabe Newell could be talking about a number of things, including the rumored Valve Steam Box, integrating Steam into iOS and Apple TV, or maybe something else.
Of course, this meeting may in fact never happened.
It was discovered recently Valve is looking to hire hardware engineers, suggesting a type of game platform is in the works.

god i hope they dont partner with apple apple sucks! lol
Please don't join forces with Apple.. ugh I can just hear it now.. the iConsole.. Gabe Newell, don't do it for the love of god.. dont do anything with Apple!!!!!!
it's the end of the world... now is for real
I'm sure it's just a meeting to improve functionality of Steam in OS X.
I don't know why people are so fearful of the possibility of a collaboration between Valve and Apple. If anything it will just be a Steam app on the ipad. I'm kind of surprised that doesn't already exist actually, what with the app business being so insanely huge and profitable.
Please don't be true. This would be many people and I's worst nightmare to see Apple partner with Valve. Gabe Newell better have kicked Apple out of their office.
I'm really excited about this. My two favorite companies sharing common interests sounds really good!
However, the only thing I care from Valve today is WHEN THE F**K THEY PLAN TO UNVEIL THE NEXT HALF LIFE?
Oh jeeze... seems like Apple and Google are both going to control the world! Look out!
I imagine more Chinese kids in factories signing contracts not to kill themselves.
Valve doesn't need them but I could see something come from that would change games and some games need changing
You guys need to be open to new ideas! Just imagine Apple developing the console and Valve supporting Steam on it! Amazingggggggg. And maybe Valve can add some sort of achievement/trophy system to Steam! :DDDDDDD
if Valve was allowed to be Valve then this could be great...but with Jobs gone I fear this would turn into just another free iphone app...with a lot of users potentially downloading it and that is just boo
I think we might get a real portal gun out of this. lol
nope. nope. nope. apple screws everything up. let valve stay as valve
What will they make? a console that you have to buy each year? and one that plays games that are good for 5 minutes of killing time?
Please Valve,leave Apple in the world they created,the one that suckers people out of their money for minimal upgrades,and gives them the feeling that they are better then anyone else cause their high tech fashion accessory has a cute little apple on it
ahaha I jokely commented on Apple joining up with Valve to my family and friends or with nintendo , but this is very interesting.
That's cool to know. I wonder if he is gonna work on Portal 3...
