That's exactly what it is by the sound of it. No optical drive console running linux that gets all its content direct from Steam. Cuts out distribution of media and all the associated nonsense and puts all the profits right in their pocket.

Its a woman, so its easy to write it off that way if you wanna be sexist. However, this wasn't some dumb hooker off the streets...

Honestly it seems like she had an idea, thought it was really good, but ultimately didn't get the interest from others she needed in order to facilitate development. Sounds like she couldn't let it go and Valve ended up cutting her and some others. I believe most companies were downsizing at the time (GFC), and if she was one employee stomping her foot over something, then she probably labelled herself as replaceable.

no wonder they cant deliver shit on time

im fine with valve. They deliver shit when its good and ready, and bug free, and stable, and complete (no day 1 dlc crap, or dlc crap in general for that matter). They can take all the time they need.

Have they ever had a significant flop?
