Valve interested in Wii U “scalability”

Valve gave several keynote addresses at New York’s Games for Change Festival yesterda, and after all was said and done, Valve head and founder Gabe Newell sat down with Joystiq to talk about the Wii U.

“Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation,” he said. “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.”

Though a Valve game has never seen a release on a Nintendo console, Newell states that Valve has “always loved Nintendo,” and after these comments, it appears that a partnership looms on the horizon.

And in other Valve news, Newell casually announced that Portal 2 has sold 3 million copies across platforms. No big deal.
