Oh hells yeah! Left 4 Dead has to be the most fun I have had this whole generation. I am really hoping for some more paths and more objectives.

I hope this is really true.

first of all, it's going to be on PC no matter what, so it would never be exclusive to an Xbox console. second, what makes you think it won't come to PS3/4? Valve publishes the game, and they've been working with Sony lately. i really can't see L4D3 (if/when it comes out) being on Xbox and not Playstation, or vice versa.

I doubt L4D this time around on console will be exclusive to the Xbox Platform.

Hopefully mod support will come to the console platform this time.

It will release on Pc aswell so its best to say microsoft exclusive although mac and linux was able to play it also
Crazay  +   844d ago
I really and truly hope you're right but somehow, and I've said this for AGES now, I see Left 4 Dead 3 hitting PS4 exclusively for a set period of time. Just a gut feeling I have after Gabe came out sheepishly a few years ago at E3 at the Sony presser. I see Steam coming to PS4 and L4D3 being at the forefront of that...

It won't be, but even still, what's so good about exclusives?

Do you derive pleasure from knowing that millions of other gamers who bought a near-identical console from a different brand will be miserable as a result of being denied the ability to play games which you can?

Honestly, I hope they do more things like portal, for competitive play cross pc/console isnt right, but for co-op had a blast on portal 2 playing with console buddies. Its an awesome idea, and I know Sony is more open to this kind of stuff over Microsoft, so I hope we see more!

Was the same with how Epic added community mods to Unreal Tourny on ps3, unfortunately it wasnt that popular, hope it happens again and catches fire, because there are a lot of great things the console is missing! Honestly if it wasnt for Sony's first party stable I wouldnt even own a console.

IF so, it'll be yet another TIMED EXCLUSIVE.
That's all it's good for.
Wizziokid  +   844d ago
Most likely this will be multiform, L4D was only exclusive because at that point Valve didn't like the PS3.
DeadlyFire  +   844d ago
Exclusive? Highly unlikely.

Was only exclusive to X360 due to developers not wanting to touch the PS3. EA had to outsource development on Orange box to someone else to get PS3 version in there.

This time around PS4/X1, and PC have the same code. Porting to either of those should be seemless experience with smaller issues between the playforms.
mikeslemonade  +   844d ago
Finally it took them like 10 years for them to make an entirely new engine.
edgeofsins  +   844d ago
Valve said Portal 2 on Playstation 3 was the best version of Portal on consoles. They even included Portal 2 for steam with the PS3 version via a code. Live restricted them too much just to update their games so they decided PSN was a better method for developers to express themselves.

This game will suck on console anyway. The mods on PC were so good. The weapons mods, the counterstike like buy system mod that was put it. The custom maps, characters, hell they modded in all the maps from Left 4 dead one. Custom missions and multiplayer maps someone even made a hord mode mod. There also was a leveling system that was modded in. I loved playing multiplayer and being on the infected team. And saving up my points to spawn a tank or hord to send after the survivors it was so much fun lol.

HugoDrax  +   844d ago

"Seriously, who brings up a Xbox when talking about Valve? Valve is first and foremost a PC gaming company."

Well I'll be happy to answer your question. Being that both Mike Harrington and Gabe Newell, founder/co founder of Valve worked for Microsoft for 14 years, it's understandable that Xbox could be brought up in a Valve article referring to a franchise that was only released for Microsofts console, PC + MAC. From my understanding they both founded Valve in the 90's after leaving Microsoft.

So with that being said, it's understandable why Left 4 Dead was previously released on XBOX and not PS3. Does that mean that it won't arrive on PS4 this time around? No it doesn't, but it's a good chance it could remain only on Microsoft's console instead of Sony's platform. I personally enjoyed playing the game more on PC/MAC, but I'm sure it will be just as fun if its released for both XB1/PS4. Which I'll own both so I'm not concerned about exclusivity, I'm just concerned with finding time to enjoy all the games I currently own and the next gen titles releasing soon.

Anyhow, we will see what the future holds for this franchise, as Valve needs to hurry up with releasing Half Life 3 instead lol.

Kryptix  +   844d ago

He means that Valve are now happy to be working with Sony in general. If Left 4 Dead 3 is coming to consoles, it will be on both, the PS4 and Xbox One. And knowing them, they'll love to utilize the cross platform feature just like you could play Portal 2 on the PS3 with PC players.

well now that Sony and MS are using virtually the same hardware, I see no reason why it wouldn't be on both.

im thinkin the whole direct x thing makin it easier to move between pc and xbox as opposed to ps using open gl. it could lead to xbox having timed exclusivity until valve makes the linux version of the game if its not ready at launch... maybe

I preordered a PS4, but even I can admit that this might very well be an Xbox exclusive... I hope not, but that's how it was for the first 2 Left 4 Deads.

TheFallenAngel  +   844d ago
You're not missing out on much.
Neixus  +   844d ago
why do you seem so sure about that? The last game from valve on consoles, is Portal 2. Which had miles better support than Xbox version.
Heck, they gave you an extra code that you could give to a friend on PC and play together, cross platform. And they even updated it to work with ps move.
Rivitur  +   844d ago
Last game was CSGO not an exclusive either. Only MS exclusive for Valve was l4d and l4d2 but that's because of Gabe hating PS3 after the patch up they released Portal 2 and have no problems with Sony.
JunioRS101  +   844d ago
Dude, when people say 'exclusive' they're talking about CONSOLE exclusives (usually).

I'm saying it might not come to PS4.

Personally, I don't really care if it comes to PC because my friends play on consoles, which is where I also play most of the time.

Yes, this may be an unfortunate situation for only me, but that's kind of what I was trying to get at with my original comment. Sorry.

UnHoly_One  +   844d ago
lol, thanks for your concern, but I've always said that and I stand by it.

Half Life is a mediocre shooter at best, L4D is amazing. It's no contest.

Of course that is all my opinion, but I just fail to see anything about Half Life that makes it stand above the hundreds of other run of the mill shooters out there.
Pintheshadows  +   844d ago
My opinion of your opinion UhHoly is that it sucks thoroughly for you to have that opinion.

If you have actually played through Half Life, Half Life 2 and both their additions you'd know why it stands out above the other 'run of the mill shooters'.

It isn't 'a run of the mill shooter'. What other series can you think of that offers the Gravity Gun?

And as much as I like L4D calling Half Life run of the mill and not L4D is insanely hypocritical. After all, how diluted has the industry been this gen with games that feature zombies as the antagonists?

Trying to play down Half Life is like trying to play down Deus Ex. You just don't do it. Certainly not in public.
UnHoly_One  +   844d ago
lol, well I appreciate your counter-opinion.

I'm sorry, I tried Half Life, I thought it was generic and bland. I never tried Half Life 2 because even if it was better I wouldn't have wanted to pick up the story in the middle.

Saying L4D is run of the mill just because it has zombies in it is an oversimplification, however. Yes there are tons of Zombie games out there, but lots of them are very very different experiences.

I could say Halo sucks because there are a ton of games where you fight aliens, or Uncharted sucks because there are a bunch of games where you shoot people, but that obviously doesn't make any sense because they are all very different games.

L4D is great because it was something different and unique. The randomization of the levels was something that was new and added a ton of replayability. And the Vs. multiplayer was unique and different than anything else out there.
CommonSense  +   843d ago
Half Life 2 is hardly a mediocre shooter. If it's not good, everything else is garbage.

Crazay  +   844d ago
My friends and I are comping at the bit to get more L4D goodness...It's actually THE ONLY game to hold our atention for more than a few months. We still play it every Sunday on XBL and I gotta say, the game is buggier than Timmon and Poombah's crap these days. It's laggy, the game crashes to valve load screen, you can get stuck in odd locations before you spawn in as Special infected and I've even been the tank that spawned over the creek in Swamp fever in the last few days.

I just hope that whatever console it hits, they support it better with more maps, real deadlines and community driven maps.

This game would actually do better on PS3/PS4 than on any M$box because of keyboard + mouse control, mods, and free online. I remember when Valve was pissed at Sony for making the system expensive and hard to make games for but then they saw the light and then got pissed at M$. PSN is slowly turning into Steam for consoles so I hope they work together. Great minds should think alike. Oh and Xbots? Don't get your hopes up. You can't claim a game as exclusive if its on PC.
christocolus  +   844d ago
about it being xbox one exclusive i highly doubt that except ms is able to strike a very good deal with valve,but with regards to your comment the game actually did well on the xbox 360 without the keyboard and mouse and it was a CONSOLE exclusive for xbox 360 except you consider pcs to be a gaming consoles.
