Valve’s The Orange Box was one of 2007’s best gaming events, offering up a trifecta of great games for fans to enjoy. Particularly wonderful was the PC’s version of Team Fortress 2 (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) which has received updates and new content every so often to keep the quality of gaming at optimum levels.

For the most part, this has worked well for Valve and its PC fans. However, a clamor has been steadily growing from Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 fans who want to see improvements on their own turf as as well.

Fortunately, Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi was on hand recently to respond to this issue. He said that console users need not worry because the cavalry is on its way. At least, that is, for the Xbox 360 side.

“What we’ve been waiting for is until we had a critical mass of new content to put out,” said Lombardi to Shacknews. “So we feel like we’re kind of there now.”

“We’ll probably be making some announcements pretty soon on what will happen with the 360 stuff,” he added, but immediately broke some troubling news for the PS3. “I don’t know that – unfortunately I don’t know that any of that will make it to the PS3.”

Going into specifics, Lombardi said that Valve intends to bring the Goldrush update and some new achievements to the Xbox 360 for Team Fortress 2. For the PS3, some moves may be undertaken with its developer EA UK to try and see what could be done. We’ll keep you posted for more.
