GameDailyBiz has an article with Valve’s Gabe Newell where he complains:
There are incredibly few programmers who can safely write code in the PlayStation 3 environment. And I totally see why Sony wants people to write code that runs on seven SPEs and a central processing unit, because that code is never going to run well anywhere else.
Give me a friggin break. Every console made since the dawn of time was a proprietary, complex, hard to program system that programmers had a love/hate relationship with. PS3 is no different.
Some programmers just want the world handed to them on a silver spoon!
