Valve Interested in the Wii U

According to Joystiq, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell is very interested in the Nintendo Wii U.

During a handful of keynote speeches at this week’s Games for Change Festival in New  York, Newell acknowledged that the Wii U is a more powerful console than the Wii.

“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,” Newell told Joystiq.

Though Valve has yet to release a game on a Nintendo console, Newell seems much more open to making that happen with the Wii U.  Newell added that the Wii U would “fit within that framework.”

Perhaps not a direct confirmation that Valve will develop a game for the Nintendo Wii U, but there’s certainly some positive feelings from the company about the new console.
