Saw this a few days ago. First thing I thought - "Wow, he's lost weight".

But yeah, Valve/Steam are doing crazy well.

Considering he's 6'4" and still pretty beefy, I wouldn't call him little.

Just from reading the top... so Valve dominate Online Game Sales more than Google dominate Search... Interesting... (google have about 66% global share iirc)

Probably not a fair comparison - there probably isn't much market for digital downloads in China (that, or they're firewalled) and Google looses a lot of market share there.

I think he means the Orange Box was on PS3, and they're saying P2 is the first game Valve are releasing on PS3.

Hmm, I suppose the PS3 port was actually EA, whereas this time EA are just doing the disks.
