Nej, någon ny Source-motor blir det inte, säger Valves starkeman Gabe Newell i en intervju med Develop. Däremot vill man jobba med nya sätt att ta betalt för spel av folk. För prismodellen som finns nu gillar han inte alls, och Newell kallar den rent av för "buggig".

"The industry has this broken model, which is one price for everyone. That's actually a bug, and it's something that we want to solve through our philosophy of how we create entertainment products", säger Newell.

Istället borde man ta fram en modell som är mer optimal för var och en, menar han: "An example is - and this is something as an industry we should be doing better - is charging customers based on how much fun they are to play with. Some people, when they join a server, a ton of people will run with them. Other people, when they join a server, will cause others to leave. We should have a way of capturing that. We should have a way of rewarding the people who are good for our community."

"So, in practice, a really likable person in our community should get Dota 2 for free, because of past behaviour in Team Fortress 2. Now, a real jerk that annoys everyone, they can still play, but a game is full price and they have to pay an extra hundred dollars if they want voice.", avslutar Gabe.

Bra eller anus? Ska oförskämda taskmörtar som inte kan bete sig online få betala mer för sina spel än andra?
