Videogaming247: Following confirmation from GDC that there were no plans in place to bring zombie shooter Left 4 Dead to PS3, Valve's Doug Lombardi has said that no fat lady's sung on a Sony port yet.
Noob Developers make me sickkkkkkkk !
These A##holes need to spend some money, learn something instead of porting games. They embarras me as a human. All they want is $
Did this you just call Valve a noob developer?
they might as well not even bother
I remember when Gabe Newell bashed the PS3 and 360, praising his Source Engine, only to have his engine butt ****ed by Epic's Unreal E. 3.0 when companies started buying it like hot cakes, and pretty much by ever other graphical engine out there.
After seeing L4D, it should be a great title for the N64.
bring it if you want. As is it won't be anything but a rental on my 360 when it comes out. Unless offcourse it runs around with 9's and 10's lol. Then i will reconsider
Want evidence that N4G is a worthless hole of idiot fanboys?
This comment has 10 Agrees & 5 Disagrees.
A) Valve is not "newb" in any sense.
B) "learning something instead of porting games" is retarded. You would have to learn to use the PS3 development environment, and program for it, in order to DO THE PORT.
C) "All they want is $" *EVERY* Company in the gaming industry is in it for the money.
D) "They embarras[sic] me as a human." Really - I think you're doing a bang-up job of that yourself.
well considering that source is already 4 years old, its time they refreshed it anyways. but its not like UE3 hasn't been having any problems either. a good share of people are complaining as well.
Source Engine 2007 was a huge update. The Antlion Caves with the dynamic- and self-shadowing is one of the most graphically impressive things I've ever seen, especially with 16xQ CSAA, 16x AF, and every other setting maxed out at 1920x1200.
some people are soooo hypocrite. They say "Anyways I'll get the superior version on the PC" If the pc is so superior than console versions , that means 360 and ps3 (DONT tell me pc is superior to 360 but not ps3) why didnt you guys buy Unreal tournament on PC instead ?
Why didnt you wait for GTA4 and DMC4 on PC , since its the "superior" version ?
Dont tell me its because of the wait.You people wait 1 year to play Geow on PC and anyways most 360 ports to pc come out months later so waiting isnt a problem.
So why dont you get those games for PC instead ?
It is the superior version right ? But you still get those games for your PS3 instead.
Wheres the logic ?
yeah i guess those noobs at valve with their AAAAAAA+ half life 1,2 and the most played multiplayer game ever Counter strike plus the most fun multilayer last year TF2 and the most original game last year in portal need to go back to drawing boards. fanboyism of this level makes me sick. Take your crap to the gamer zone. Valve hasn't made a crap game yet and i agree LAchance the hypocrisy on this site is amazing. every time a 360 multi plat goes PC its off to PC for the superior version. Everyone complains about the cost of gaming pcs in one thread seemingly has a ultra rig at home to play any mulitplats on their "superior format" But Ut3 was fine on consoles right?
This game looks horrible graphically.
please no port it already looks like a ps2 port
Ha. Really. Dont bother, if you must, please take it ->
What do you mean "ha really"? Have you not seen the gameplay vids?!!! The game looks like it will be a blast to play but the graphics look pretty bad. They look even more outdated than Half Life's!!! The game will probably be fun... but with Resistance, Gears, & KZ all on the way, this is a game I will probably be passing on.
instead of him taking his non flaming comments to the open zone, you can take all of your flaming crap and shove it right back up your...(i won't finish this comment; i am in the gamer zone after all :D)
..but as it appears to be another possible port I say NO WAY ...you will not get my hard earned cash on your last minute, extra profit, full of bugs and framerate issues port....... ..... .. ...."The JOEY has Spoken"
Did you even play the game? I don't know about Team Fortress(I don't play online so I never touched it), but I didn't even notice any problems in half-life and portal, besides slightly longer than normal loading times. I only gave it a rental, but playing Portal and Half-life 2 with minor glitches is way better than not playing it at all. Those games are sweet! Not to mention that the game IS GETTING FIXED by the end of March anyway. Valve is just stubbon, by the end of 2008, they'll change their minds about the PS3.
a port by a third party...NO!!!!!!!!!!!! The only way this would ever turn out ok is if Insomniac did the port, and we know that will never happen. Nope
why? sure it would be behind 360 and PC versions, but it would still be a game and it would still be fun Orange Box had a few extra framerate dips on the PS3 because it was handled by another studio- it was still pretty damn amazing of course it would rock if Valve did the PS3 port themselves- but i would pretty satisfied with an external port as well
I agree with all of you guys, they must take us gamers as jokes that will buy anything that they put out. Not to pick at EA, but that is the same trick that they are trying to pull gamers to buy the same recycled material. The only reason people buy these games are because they are misinformed and are used to see these products heavily advertised every year. For example, Friend 1 would have a played these type of games would give their opinion, and then friend 2 would be jealous because, friend 1 is having so much fun, then they would be sucked up in the trap. So in essence it is heavy advertising, but word of mouth is how these games are sold, until peoples opinions change, it will continue to sell. Sorry about all the commas I had to type this in a hurry and make it sound write.
just saw the latest GTTV they interviewed fat boy Gabe Newell and he said that is very possible that left4dead gets ported to the PS3, all i could say was "who ate all the pies" "who ate all the pies" "you ate all the pies" hope he can drag his blubber out of bed an port the game to the PS3
Valve can F off. If they don't think the PS3 is worth their time, then don't even bother porting it.
Sounded like a thought and a smartass remark.
Wonder if PS3 can even run such a complex game designed for PC and 360.
PoG are you just that blind, or is it that you feel that anything working on the competition is a threat to your way of life?
Yes the PS3 can run it - the question really should be whether a port would be a good idea or not.
Generally not a good idea if it wasn't design for Asymmetric Multiprocessing to begin with.
Symmetric to Asymmetric redesign is complicated but the reverse is much easier.
A bad port is worse then not having the game at all. My feelings are that if you can't do a good job then don't do it.
You think the PS3 needs to be justified? And the 360 doesn't? You are kidding me, right? A product as faulty as the 360 should never have made it to market. It's a disgrace, especailly when you look at how much work Nintendo has put into thewir consoles over the years to ensure that they are practically indestructible up until the point you smash them with a sledgehammer. To this day I've never heard of an original gameboy being broken.
I'd like to see how Power of Green defines the word "justified". Can you honestly call the 360 justified? I know a guy who's gone through 12 Xbox 360's failing on him. Twelve! 2 of them were from the new Falcon line. Another friend of mine got his 360 replaced with another refurbished one, just to have the same thing happen to him a month later. Some people should realize that the 18 or so million 360's sold to date DO NOT represent the install base. It's safe to assume that AT LEAST 1/3 of the total sold were to people whose previous 360's RROD'd on them and who went out of their way to buy another. That's ridiculous. Noone should have to put up with that. And after 08, noone will want to.
Tallyboy = troll
mark my words left 4 dead will come out on the ps3. when? who knows but EA might step in again and do the port cause i'm pretty sure they don't want to miss out on some more money and it will be good for ps3 owners. me? i'll be playing the BEST version...pc one
It was coming to PS3 then they scrapped it now its coming to PS3 again?. I wouldn't buy to much into what was said. lol
I knew PS3 fans were envyous of this title. lol
yeah orange box wasn't gonna come out on the ps3 because valve doesn't like the ps3 and whatever...wow guess what it came out. why? more money. it will come out, and tbh i don't give a crap about the console versions, if u can play it on the pc, then play on the best platform, only lame ppl play multiplatform fps's on gamepads
i can play it wherever it comes out, i'm a ps3wii60pc owner. my opinion about the 3 consoles? i'm up for the ps3. i just posted to give my two cents about the "omg ps3 won't have left 4 dead" comments. IF it was the first time (like the Orange box) (i thought that one wasn't gonna happen on the ps3 tbh) i could say "yeah it probably won't come out valve doesn't like the ps3" but we did see ps3 orange even though valve doesn't like the machine. so what is the logical deduction of this? valve doesn't like the ps3...EA did the port for Orange Box...valve still doesn't like the ps3...but says that even though they're not working on it they don't rule out the possibility of someone doing that job...my logical deduction is this : left 4 dead WILL come out on the ps3. perhaps we will only see it like fall, christmas...who knows? but yes ppl it will come out it doesn't take a genius to figure it out, heck i don't even need surfer girl to tell me that
Have you guys seen the trailers? Resident evil for the ps looks more fun than this,, cmon guys, get your heads out of you @sses. I wouldnt buy this game even if it wasnt a port. Just go to game trailers.com and look at the vids,, this game is freaking retarded.
If they wanna do a PS3 version from scratch, then sure, nice addition to the PS3 games library. If they're just considering porting the 360 version to the PS3 then don't even bother, cause its gonna be crap. The mentality of some of these devs needs to change. Of course your not gonna get the two versions of the game running identically if you are just developing one version and then porting it to other console. The two consoles have different hardware specs, so its obvious you'll have to make two independent versions of the game, from the ground up: one to each console. Port = Lazy Devs Two independent versions of the game = Good devs Its as simple as that.
"nice addition to the PS3 games library."
Right. Because uhm, the PS3 Library is so terrific at this point. The PS3 "library" is still a list of promises.
And, your "port = lazy, two independant-games = good" is LOL stupid. What do *YOU* know about the finances of modern video-game development?
I cant understand how you, wageslave, is still allowed to post on this zone.
The PS3 library is just fine... Uncharted, COD4, Ninja Gaiden, Heavenly Sword, Resistance, etc... In my humble opinion it is as good as the, also great, xbox library. I love both librarys. I like the xbox library so much that I will get most of it for the PC when I gather enough money.
Anyone can see you belong somewhere else.
Look at the sales of their hyped games, the ones that are supposed to make people want the console. They sell under 500K...some not even that! PS3 owners are not gamers, they're people who wanted a cheap blu-ray player, simple as that. Please don't waste any effort in such an inferior machine Valve.
yeah for sure because the 2 million people who bought AC, and the 2 mil who bought COD4, and the 1mil who bought Uncharted im guessing they're all videophiles right being a fanboy is one thing- posting stupid an ignorant things with no validation is another your parents wasted their time
As EXPECTED,Xbots have now resorted to ILLEGAL MEANS of convincing themselves their White BRICK is STILL RELEVANT and has a CHANCE of making a COMEBACK. Valve/MicroBots in disguise can KEEP Left 4 Dead,the visuals are HORRENDOUS and the gameplay REEKS of repetitiveness.PERFECT for the Xbot3fixme. Jump OUT and Play B3YOND
there not lazy, there not "n00b devs" they make Half Life one of the best games ever.
they are just arrogant
i guess metacritic must be wrong half life series isnt one of the best games ever.
As soon as a game is announced exclusive it suddenly becomes a big deal. Tell me, who in 2007 gave an S about Dead Rising 4? I'd never even seen 1-3.
Why is everyone ragging on Valve? They have their differences with the ps3, but still are letting their games get ported over anyway, letting as many gamers as possible play their games. And by the way... their games are really good. I don't know why everyone is so ticked about the port, it wasn't really that bad, I don't play TF, but Portal and Half Life were just fine, and I loved 'em. Long load times, but that's my only issue. Not to mention that its getting fixed. I'd far rather get good games on the ps3 like this than not.
I'd far rather not get a crappy port, then get a port and have the entire internet saying games look worse on PS3.
Let it go and move on...
no way! there are enough good games available in 2008. time changed!
"there are enough good games available in 2008."
Really? There are enough *YOU HOPE* good games available in 2008. As of 01.03.08, there havent been any in 08 have there.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. You should worry about getting one in the hand before you start bragging.
First of all L4D looks kinda meh, and second, I'm so tired of these shooters, wtf is up with all the shooters. Please, some developer make something exciting for once.
oh lol, I totally thought it was a different game. I've never even heard of Left 4 Dead. I thought it was Dead Rising.
That the game we are talking about? Stubbs the Zombie on original Xbox like more fun. (I loved that game)
It's so them.
exclusive, optimized multiplatform or crappy port.. nop.
My money is saved for better games this year...
this game was never nothing more than a rental for me. I seriously don't understand why this particular title is being used for flamewars with RE5, Alone in the Dark, Condemned 2, etc.. coming out.
It looks like a neat game but not a OMG I just got to have this title. Did anyone seriously watch the videos on this game? I know it's still a bit early but it looks like a PC game with choppy frame rate. The only thing I dig about this title is it's co op and the zombies can run. That will definitely add a little intensity but not a purchase with ALL the huge titles coming out for both platforms.
I am going to be broke enough owning both systems with out throwing money out the window on this title. And before the I get crucified by the 360 brethren and you guys take away all of my bubbles away. I doubt I will do more than rent Condemned 2 (the 1st one was awesome and still I only rented it), RE5 and Alone in the Dark. To me most games like that are rentals. I only spend money on games that have a lot of replay value like FPS, TPS, Sports and Racers.
Looks like developers are leaving the Xbox 360 for dead! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
Their games are fun. I mean they only focus on multiplayer.
but when I compare games like COD4, Uncharted, MGS4 to vavle games, I feel Valve SUCKS butt so much !
a PORT, meaning a shyt version, a sloppy second port of the 360 version
meaning the 360 has the best games, you get the sloppy seconds on ur ps3 lol :D
I fear it would be a lost cause porting it to PS3 when no one held PS3's hand through out the entire development process. I can see it chugging along all choppy not being able to handle all the AI and enemies all at once not being able handle the polish that will be added, will third parties invest in servers for a game no ones even sure would sell on PS3.
PS3's RAM would cripple something like this, who's going to do it? a EA team? lol.
You see only huge games folks know will be successful will invest in PS3.
"in this day and age Valve is going be left in the dust"
A PC company will be left in the dust? because they develope for hardware more like a PC and the the other?, because they have on foot in the console market when they're actually a PC company?. lol
Wot a d1ckhead, yeah i forked out 500 quid 4 a ps3 2 watch blue ray movies, keep ya crappy unoriginal game, seen it all b4, ill be spending my money on killzone 2, gtaiv, metal gear solid, spaz
ill be enjoying 360's DLC for GTAIV, will you? LOLOLOLL :D
many devs are seeing that if they just take the bull by the horns they'll get control. no wild animal is not tamable, and programing for PS3 is impossible. this is why Devs like Insomniac, ND, capcom, Konami, epic, Koei and many others are puckering up and releasing their games. when everyone has everything stable and completely out performing the lesser, when the xbox 720 comes out and has parrallel processing on a Asymetric multicore processor simiar to PS3, Valve and the others who wish the take the Pu$$y route and Dev for the easier will be left behind. Games will start to get more complex. I can guarantee parrallel processing will be the industry leading form of coding for consoles with PS3 xbox 720 and PS4. lazy devs will have to fall out and work for EA
Gabe blew it for valve. I will never give valve or e.a. a dime of my money. You don't insult gamers and think they will forget. Keep your comments to yourself. Gamers can make up their own minds as to what is good and what isn't. Companies develope games not determine what i like or don't like for a console.Valve has been doing pc games for years and all of a sudden think they understand the complexity of the consoles.Yes some are harder to develope for but comsoles aren't always going to be set up the way you want. If valve wants to make a console go for it. I won't buy it and i own every console ever made!!
I just don't see any bad in it coming to the ps3. None whatsoever. More AAA titles? Sounds good to me. Plus, the port may not end up crappy, you never know.
I don't mind a port as long as its not half-assed like the Orange Box was.
Did you ever play that port? Clearly not. It was absolutely fine. I'd be happy to have another EA port, though I'd rather another company because I don't like buying any EA games for obvious ethical reasons.
Yeah, that's exactly what I've been saying. I get a feeling half the people complaining haven't actually played the game.
I definitely want a controller for this one. It looks like a game that's about movement, so I don't want to be using a clunky keyboard to move around. So if they don't let me use my 360 controller on the PC version, I'm gonna want it out on PS3.
....don't want the game. Then im sorry but i wouldnt waste my time on it. Let PC and 360 fans enjoy it. All PS3 fans seem to care about is graphics, its just lame. This game in my opinion looks great, but the gameplay is where its at, looks like great fun. Why is it Sony fans would rather not have a game than have it?!makes no sense?!its like the small minority think their voice and opinions are the opinions of all sony fans. I mean if it does come to ps3 then wtf is bad about that?!no ones forcing you personally to get it. Maybe, just maybe there are PS3 fans out there other than the sony fans on this site who may actually really want to get this game but can't because they dont own a 360 but own a PS3. And to say it looks like a Ps2 game....get real, seriously.
you know, most of us can play it on our PCs. It's a source engine game, so you don't exactly need a 8800GTS.
Valve are no0bs to console gaming. As are the majority of PC devs. I dont like Valve simply because they are stubborn. Learn the PS3 tech, its not going to hurt. 360 and PCs are so close tech wise, where as the PS3 is a different beast. They simply would rather work on PC type tech.
And to Valve I say keep your PC games on PC.
*not a fan of any of thier overhyped games*
To be fair there no reason why the port could be that bad, i mean EA didn't do that bad of a job for the Ps3 version of the orange box, its playable and still fun to enjoy. I'd rather the Ps3 got a port of a previous 360 exclusive than not get it at all However saying that i personally don't think this game looks worth the time or effort anyway
There's money to be made on a PS3 port, so I think it will happen...and I think it would sell...as long as they don't do a [email protected]
