your reaction: MS sells Xbox brand to Valve

What would you guys think of this? Personally I've had nothing but good experiences with the exception of the Steam beta with Valve. They seem to really appreciate their fanbase and even encouraging modding on their game engines. They would be their own best developer of first party titles and you would likely see digital game prices much closer to what we have on Steam.

You're delusional...Valve isn't going anywhere thanks to the success of steam and their own franchises.

I would have thought XB fans would want better first party games

It would cost valve 8 billion to buy the xbrand. They don't have the dough.

Valve does not have enough money to buy the Xbox brand, but if they did it would be fantastic. The only that has ever kept me from buying an Xbox product is Microsoft, and the brands focus on boring, unoriginal dudebro titles. That would not be an issue if Valve was in charge.

Since they don't submit financial statements its pretty hard to say for sure.

Frankly I could see Valve bringing the XB to new levels of greatness. They treat their customers much better than MS. I would like the XB to be more popular but I don't see MS as the company to do it.
