Chet Faliszek has said Valve is still holding out hope that Steam will be made available on Xbox 360 in the future.

Speaking with Develop in an interview, Faliszek reiterated comments made by Valve head Gabe Newell last month, that the decision to not include the service on the console was made by Microsoft and not through any exclusivity deal with Sony.

Faliszek said that there’s “some things going on with Portal 2 right now,” in regards to the firm’s plans on the console but as far as Steam integration was concerned, “we’ll see.”

While Valve has said in the past Sony should be commended for allowing Steam on its system, Faliszek said the firm still has to go through Sony’s approval process in order to update games through the service.

“There’s some big changes that still need to go through, so we’ll have to see,” he said when asked if Steam could provide incremental updates to PS3 games. “We’re open to that and it’d be cool idea but we’re just going to have to wait.”
