Valve Co-Founder Says Tim Cook Did Not Visit Valve HQ
Earlier this week, we reported that Apple CEO Tim Cook had visited the headquarters of video-games make, Valve. This sparked the speculations that Apple and Valve maybe collaborating and some iOS exclusive or Mac OS X exclusive games might be coming soon.
However, at the moment, these speculations do not seem to be true.
According to Valve co-founder Gabe Newell, Tim Cook did not visit the headquarters . The rumor of Cook’s visit was squashed by Newell in a podcast interview.
Video game website Kotaku had a preview of the podcast from Seven Day Cooldown that included this quote:
We actually, we all sent mail to each other, going, “Who’s Tim Cook meeting with? Is he meeting with you? I’m not meeting with Tim Cook.” So we’re… it’s one of those rumors that was stated so factually that we were actually confused. ??
No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were! We have a long list of things we’d love to see Apple do to support games and gaming better. But no, we didn’t meet with Tim Cook. He seems like a smart guy, but I’ve never actually met him.
With the report of the meeting between Cook and Valve executives setting off endless speculations about partnerships between the companies, there were rumors of Valve’s Steam service integrating with the App Store or an Apple television.
