Well there you go folks, either it was a bad secret or just a simple mistake.

EDIT: Although i'm suprised they typo'd the L4D boxart onto a PS3 case. ;p

As with any timed exclusivity contract, they have to carefully word their denials.

Bioshock says hi.

@ Cthulhu: Yeah, it's called Windows.

MisterNiwa3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

A PC isnt Microsoft Platform, just the OS is, lol.

EDIT: I read what they wrote. Typo, eh... ? I wouldve thought of a "we would never do a game for the ps3" or such...

I rather play it on PC than 360.

silvacrest3072d ago

its a valve game so a medium end PC will do

gintoki7773072d ago

best 3rd party developer valve psshh dont make me laugh
they are good but not the best I dont even like l4d

The_Beast3072d ago

The way Valve treats PS3 owners they can keep this game. I have a 360 and still won't pick it up, do to the way they just give us the finger over and over. They walk around thinking they are big man on campus.

Tito Jackson3072d ago

although we have official word from VALVE, I expect there to be 7-8 more articles on this subject by the end of business day.

Dragun6193072d ago

Obviously, Left 4 Dead 2 is an exclusive to Xbox360 and PC as it was just announced in E3. Wait 6 months after Left 4 Dead 2 is released and we might see a port just like Bioshock, Orange Box, Command and Conquer, Tales of Vesperia, and Ninja Gaiden 2.

really duh3072d ago

I was wondering if he mentioned the PC when he said get a Microsoft platform if you wan't to play the game. Anyways I'm sure he knows you need the 360 or windows to play the game.

On topic... bu bu bu teh bioshock

solar3072d ago

this site keeps getting worse...and worse. this is news?

Timesplitter143072d ago

"s there really someone who wants to play L4D on consoles? That's just complete nonsense. I know absolutely NO ONE who plays L4D on their 360, and there's a good reason for that. It's like playing Starcraft on a cellphone."

What a pant load. Left 4 Dead is one of the top 5 most games played on Live and I know many people including myself who bought the 360 version and enjoy it just as much as any PC gamer is enjoying it.

I can't believe you are comparing L4D PC vs 360 to Starcraft on a cell phone. You obviously have never played the game on the 360 if you think there is that much of a difference.

If its made by Valve I would never buy it on anything but the PC. Mods are the life blood of their games. It keeps me coming back to play it more. Without mod support I would never think about buying it on anything else.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3072d ago

But you cant play any of these games without "Windows" which is a MS platform... opps I didn't spoil your hopes and dreams did I?

"L4D is better on 360 because of XBL. " hmmm i doubt that was serious considering you can do everything live can do and more on pc for free...

not to mention i got the pc version for £13 and the 360 version is still £25 :D

+ i could laugh at my mate who bought L4D on 360 rather than pc (despite being a much bigger pc gamer than me) cus he was expecting L4D to be 4 player co-op split, unfortunatly it's only 2 which sucks tbh

really duh3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Holy crap the mod deleted my comment because I said L4D is better on the 360 because of XBL?

Also my other comment that was deleted was in response to #1.12 telling him how this *is news* coming from the devs clearing up speculation and rumors and it got deleted? GTFO.

@1.25 no one cares where you think the game should be played.

peeps3072d ago

"@1.25 no one cares where you think the game should be played. "

where i think the game should be played? where did i say where the game should be played lol take of your goggles and read again please. and you wonder why your posts get deleted by mods

really duh3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Why would you laugh at your "mate" ?

This article is about rumors of the PS3 version I don't get your talk about the PC or your obsession with it.

" you seem to presume anything negative must be a fanboy comment lol just looking for arguments tbh"

^^ You're the one replying to me seemingly offended LMAO

Jaces3072d ago

Buy it used from gamestop. ;D

peeps3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

"Why would you laugh at your mate? " cus he pretty much just pc games but got L4D on 360 and paid way more cus he pressumed it would be 4 player split so he could play with his mates at uni. shudda read the box i guess lol

he would have been better off spending half as much, playing for free online on the pc and getting any mods that came out. obv if it had of had 4 player split then buying it for 360 would have been the better option (in his scenario)

you seem to presume anything negative must be a fanboy comment lol just looking for arguments tbh

Prototype3072d ago

Usually on the box itself it says "Only on Xbox and Windows" however I do remember the whole Bioshock incident which was later ported to the PS3 (good game on both systems by the way).

I don't care either way, there's way other games I can enjoy and classics I can replay

GrandTheftZamboni3072d ago

'exclusively on Xbox 360 and PC.' = Public Beta

Xbox Avatars Shoe3072d ago

I sold my 360 last year and never got a chance to play L4D. I've always been interested so I'd play it. I'm not gonna go buy another 360 for L4D though.

SinnedNogara3072d ago

This is like the MW2 on Wii situation. You want it, but it is very unlikely to actually happen despite the fact there is potential.

likedamaster3072d ago (Edited 3072d ago )

Last time I checked L4D sold way more on 360 than pc, so there you go. By Doug Lombardi himself.

Stop the L4D hate seriously, if you want to play that much get a 360.

mebob3072d ago

"Last time I checked L4D sold way more on 360 than pc, so there you go. By Doug Lombardi himself. "

And sales improve your gaming experience how? last i checked L4d PC has better graphics, gameplay and mods.

"Stop the L4D hate seriously, if you want to play that much get a 360. "

Or get a pc :D. seriously i don't get why so many 360 fanboys claim exclusivity for games that are also relase on PC. So what it its a "Games for windows title" Its still not "360 Exclusive game for windows".

If i can play the same game without a 360 or any other game without having to purchase "x" console, then it shouldn't be considered an exclusive.

Marquis_de_Sade3071d ago (Edited 3071d ago )

While I wouldn't mind seeing L4D on the PS3, I don't see why people think Valve should go out of their way to learn to programme for the PS3 when they are primarily PC developers, it's just lucky (or unlucky if you look at lack of graphical advancement shown since Gears of War 1) that the 360 has such a simple architecture.

By the way, why are you even allowed to comment in the Gamer Zone timesplitter? Please take your fanboy drivel over to the Open Zone.

DeadlyFire3071d ago

PS3 is very likely to get Left 4 Dead 2. Constructed by EA though more than likely and also likely to be timed released 3-9 months later than PC/X360 version.

IdleLeeSiuLung3071d ago (Edited 3071d ago )

I dont' understand why the hate towards Valve for not making L4D2 for PS3. I mean there are countless other developers that develop exclusively for the PS3, but we don't b!tch at them (such as Sucker Punch).

So what is up with the double standard? Or is it just the immense jealousy from PS3 fanboys for this game? If you want it that much, get a 360, it's only $200 and you get to enjoy best that both consoles offer!

Anon19743071d ago

You don't see Insomniac or Sucker Punch developing for the PS3 and then slagging every single other console, yet that's what Valve does. And they're notorious for it. Just look at what they did with HalfLife 2 on the PC. While other developers were happily making their games run fine on Nvidia cards, Valve (who had a partnership with ATI) instead didn't bother to develop their game to use the Nvidia cards properly, and then complained about the cards themselves. Sound familiar?

EA's port of Orange Box to the PS3 was fine. The excellent reviewer scores it saw are evidence of that and EA has come a long way in that time in terms of the quality of their PS3 development. There's no reason why Valve wouldn't let them port L4D and L4D2 to the PS3 - with the exception of perhaps the fact that they all made their millions when they worked at Microsoft and still have strong ties there.

If they just shut up and made games, there probably wouldn't be an issue.

For those too lazy to make the jump.
They've upheld exclusivity with the original L4D I have no reason to believe otherwise that this will make its way to the PS3 based on past actions.
