Come on now, that's a BS arguement you know it.

If we were to ever see Value's bookkeeping I would bet everything I own that the majority of their money comes from selling third party games, not their own.

If anything, I would argue that Valve only develop games as a means to an end. They just want as many people as possible to install Steam. Take TF2 for example, that game alone has probably lost Valve a fortune. Nobody in their right mind would release 120 free updates for a game with no ongoing fees or expansion packs.

You can't say to developers "Hey want to make money? Create a fantastic distribution service and sell other people's games", eventually somebody has to actually make those games.
