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.

ANOTHER Xbox exclusive to be announced at Gamesom!

mattdillahunty1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

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.

zeal0us1629d ago

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.

B-radical1629d ago

It will release on Pc aswell so its best to say microsoft exclusive although mac and linux was able to play it also

Crazay1629d 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...

FlameHawk1629d ago

Lol I love how george is always going on about Sony trolls and he is one of the biggest trolls here.
Valve and Sony have a WAAAAY better relationship than Valve and Microsoft.

spartanlemur1629d ago

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.

SpideySpeakz1628d ago

IF so, it'll be yet another TIMED EXCLUSIVE.
That's all it's good for.

Wizziokid1628d ago

Most likely this will be multiform, L4D was only exclusive because at that point Valve didn't like the PS3.

DeadlyFire1628d 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.

mikeslemonade1628d ago

Finally it took them like 10 years for them to make an entirely new engine.

edgeofsins1628d 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.

grimmweisse1628d ago

One bubble george, man I missed you! You must of been trolling elsewhere!

BlaqMagiq241628d ago

You're an idiot if you think its going to be an Xbox One exclusive.

gaffyh1628d ago

@grimm - He was off creating a million alternative accounts which seem to have been banned.

HugoDrax1628d ago

Damn you got 177 disagrees lol. Next time say "Another Sony exclusive" and those odds will be in your favor. Still I wonder why the disagrees when Left 4 Dead has always been released on Microsoft platforms?

Only time will tell....Will MS fork over millions to secure exclusivity? "Tune in tomorrow, same Bat-Time, same Bat-channel!"

LogicStomper1628d ago

I really don't see why people care that one console gets it and the other doesn't. Sure it gives another reason to get said console, but isn't it better if everyone can enjoy it?

awi59511628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

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.

Enemy1628d ago

Here comes multiplatform Left 4 Dead 3. Tears will flow.

The_HarryEtTubMan1628d ago

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

HugoDrax1628d 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.

A 3? Is Valve trying to destroy the world?

Heisenburger1629d ago

Well it would destroy at least.... half...

mep691628d ago

In before you get a dislike. Must be a record to see someone on here with 28 agrees and 0 disagrees :O

Linsolv1628d ago

And it's not Half Life... >_>

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1629d ago

i never really liked the shooting in this game feels weird or am i the only one? jw

Spinal1628d ago

Your the only one.

The shooting is the same as most shooters difference is this game is more fun lol. And it's probably one of the best co op experiences of all games.

@Matt What do you mean Valve has been working with Sony lately? Don't have a problem with it just link you're source, curious what they have been working on.

Kryptix1628d 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.

Doctor_Freeman1628d ago

"Xbox exclusive"

This is Valve we're talking about.

They let everyone enjoy their games(most of them).

valve CAN count to 3...

edgeofsins1628d ago

They should Release Portal 3, Half Life 3, and Left4Dead3 together. The "3 Bundle" and when they announce it they say, "Yes. We can count to 3".

MsMcClever1628d ago

@edgeofsins They can release a bundle and call if Orange Box 2.

pacostacos1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

noyce... so now we can speculate will this come to consoles like L4d1 and l4d2!? and if so will it just be xbox like last gen or Ps as well or just Ps!? im guessing everybody get the game this time

CommonSense1629d ago

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

pacostacos1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

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

Mkai281628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

I see it as well, they sold 3.30mil for left 4 dead and 3.64mil for left 4 dead 2.. I think they could use the sales on all platforms.. It's just CommonSense..

Rivitur1628d ago

Valve- Portal 2 360 and PS3
Valve- CSGO 360 and PS3

There is 0 % chance this will be an exclusive.

Also l4d2 title update coming for 360 for anyone interested.

MrTrololo1629d ago

YES !! Finally valve can count to 3 already

pandehz1628d ago


Delayed indefinitely

chrispseuphoria1629d ago

Hopefully this is coming to PS4...
