Half-Life 2 creator and Source game engine maker Valve Software, which also runs the Steam 'content delivery system' for Windows PCs, has issued a short statement indicating that it is working on multiple games for Microsoft's Xbox 360 console. These Source-powered titles, which will also be compatible with Xbox Live on the Xbox 360, are due to be announced in the near future. A version of Half-Life 2 for the original Xbox shipped last holiday season to reportedly disappointing sales. In addition, it seems likely, though not explicitly stated, that the Xbox 360 is being targeted for console versions of existing third-party PC Source Engine titles such as those being sold through Steam, since it's noted in the release that multiple genres are all possible using Source and the X360. Titles possibly available for Xbox 360 versions under these circumstances would include Ritual's SiN Episodes, Arkane's Dark Messiah Of Might & Magic, and even Warren Spector's forthcoming Source Engine title, though none of these have been confirmed thus far. Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve commented of the announcement: "The combination of Source and the 360 provides game designers the chance to create powerful entertainment experiences. Whether developing a traditional FPS, RTS, RPG or delving into new genres, the Xbox 360 is a great platform for expanding Source and our game experiences."
