Split-screen to be added to PC Left 4 Dead as "unsupported bonus feature"

Yahn Bernier, a Valve employee, on the SteamPowered forums writes,
"So splitscreen was always something we only wanted to officially support on the x360 due to the controller issues. However, we are planning on making some of the functionality work on the PC as an "unsupported" bonus feature. We turned it off for the demo because we didn't want to have to deal with any additional bug reports etc. about it interfering with the demo experience, but the current plan is to re-enable it after we launch the full product."

Split-screen is coming to the PC version of Left 4 Dead, but as an "unsupported bonus feature." The optimal configuration will be two joysticks, but one keyboard and mouse and one joystick will be possible; two keyboard and mouses will likely not be supported.

They know how to support a gaming community. Splitscreen is awesome and very rare on PC!

Valve sure do earn their position as a top tier developer.

Top tier that cant program for PS3 and uses a 10 year old engine.

It's not that they can't; the fact is, they don't give a fk about the PS3, they aren't even trying.

They can only make Windows violent games. Guns, killing and more guns and killing.

The only developers I truly respect are Naughty Dog, Insomniac, Guerilla Games, Evolution Studio, Polyphony Studio and Kojima Productions because they constantly push the envelope and find ways to exceed their own expectations.

Where does it mention sharing a single keyboard? :-|
