Valve Corporation’s Doug Lombardi has said that the company remains undecided in regards to when it will offer updated content for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Team Fortress 2.
Speaking to CVG, Lombardi stated, "We haven't yet announced what's coming to consoles - nor when, how or for how much, etc.”
His comments come following the PC iteration of the game receiving its "largest update" yet, which went live yesterday and included an updated version of the original Team Fortress map ‘Badlands’, in addition to new instalments in the Dustbowl, Granary and CTF_Well map series.
Team Fortress 2 is part of Valve's Orange Box complication, which also includes Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two and Portal.

Valve has a very poor attitude about the PS3. I don't think i'll buy anything from them until they get that fatty Gabe Newell to leave. He's already stated he doesn't like the PS3 and we get a crappy product because of his personal opinion. Anyone who lets bias get in the way of their products should be removed from their position.

I opened a PORTAL on Gabe Newell's a** and then tossed in my copy of Orange Box! Now his head has company!

Yeah right, no updates for the 360, they already released an update for that version if I'm not mistaken, although not sure what was for. That Gabe Newell already said it, he hates the PS3, so our version is the one that's gonna left behind, and come to think of it, he worked for M$ years ago....interesting... Anyway, just thinking out loud. If up to now, they have ignored hundreds of pleas for a PS3 update, they'll keep ignoring them, they don't give a rat's a** about it. Too bad that if an update would be released on the PS3 version, it would've been better than the 360 version, AND THEY DON'T WANT THAT!!
And another thing, saying that the Cell is too complex to program is just an sad excuse. I can't believe Gabe calls himself a programmer, what does he expect? To be handed everything on a gold plate??

I am most likely in the minority on this one, but I think Team Fortress 2 is just a bad game. There is nothing new about it besides the graphics when compared to Team Fortress Classic.
I will let Episode 2 slide because of the fact the story is continuing on. Other then that, Valve is nothing, I wouldn't miss them if they got bought out or something. They never push the boundries on video games. I don't even think they put in 100% effort into the games. If you decide to give those dumb devs a special video game that runs on multiple cores, that team is going to have one heck of a nightmare on their hands.
I mean come on, there are other crap developers out there that can actually fix these issues. He is not putting anything new on the table, it's all the same ol crap.

Pick the PC version, its the only cure for waiting.

Well, since Valve doesn't care about us, the console gamers, could somebody please spam their forums with a plea for the PS3 update!! I mean, we've been playing nice with them all along on their forums (if u don't believe me go check) saying our suggestions for fixes, additions and stuff, and now they're saying they're still undecided?!! WTF!!! WE ARE PAYING CUSTOMERS AND THEY TREAT US LIKE THIS, WHILE THE PC VERSION GETS MORE CONTENT!! Are these guys braindead or what!?!
That might sound immature, but we've been patient, and not one word from them!! or even their progress on the update, NOTHING!! They should have slogan that says: "VALVe, we make games, but we don't care about them"
