In this article by the New York Times, EA was aggressively pursuing Valve in hopes of acquiring them for a supposed sum of $1 billion dollars at the time. Now estimated at nearly $2.5 billion, Gabe has made it quite clear that Valve likes where they are at, and has no intention of becoming part of a corporate entity.
