I’m taking this rumor with the smallest possible grain of salt. After all, what business would Google have buying gaming company Valve? Sure, the Steam distribution platform is hot and Google would love to have said technology in it’s paws but what good is that going to do for the rest of Valve’s assets? I’m sure Portal and Half-Life aren’t going to go to good use under Google’s rule. Would we even see a new Half-Life title if Google purchased Valve? Who knows. Let’s sit back and pray the rumors aren’t true.
