There's nothing in the way of official confirmation at the moment, but tech website the Inquirer reports that "well-placed sources" are telling them that Google will be purchasing Valve "any second now." As the site points out, Google is likely less motivated by Valve's game development than their nigh-ubiquitous content distribution platform, Steam.

We, again, have no idea if this is on the money, but there have been a couple of indicators that lend a sort of credence. You may remember early last month when Valve said they were happy to talk about acquisitions, and just a little over a week ago Forbes' Chris Morris posited that Google could be going into game publishing.

That was would be a big splash for Google's entrance into the industry.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Their source is The Inquirer. Nuff said.
