Valve is interested in the Wii U

Valve are known for their awesome multiplatform hits like the Half-Life and Portal series. They’re all about great games, so the news that they’re looking into the Wii U is probably going to be welcomed by just about everyone who reads this blog.

Speaking to Joystiq, Gabe Newell (the head of Valve) had the following to say when asked about his thoughts on the Wii U:

Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation. It sort of fits better into the scalability in terms of graphics performance and CPU performance, so I think it’ll be a lot easier for us to fit it into our scalability model.

We’ve always loved Nintendo. Now it’s a lot easier to look at Wii U and have it fit within that framework.

They haven’t announced that they’re working on anything, but we might as well start speculating. Portal on a gyro-equipped touchscreen controller, anyone?
