One of the most important (and shocking) parts of Nintendo's E3 press conference this year was the sheer amount of third-party support the Wii U was receiving right out of the gate, and at least a year before the hardware had even been finalized. Everyone from Epic Games to Ubisoft, EA/DICE and Rocksteady Studios have sung their praises of Nintendo's upcoming hardware, quite the turn of events considering the company's previous history with other developers.

Now, it's Valve's turn to pledge support for the next-gen console. Company head Gabe Newell has apparently "always loved Nintendo" from afar, but until now the House of Half-Life (except for Episode 3) has never made a game for a Nintendo platform...yet. "Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation," Newell said in an interview with Joystiq. "It sort of fits better into the scalability [sic] in terms of graphics performance and CPU performance." Unfortunately, no Wii U titles from Valve have been announced just yet.

Valve has been slowly moving into the console market as of late, first by handling the Xbox 360 port of The Orange Box themselves, and then by making the PlayStation 3 the definitive platform for Portal 2, as well as porting Steam over to Sony's machine.
