Go Valve!
This is, basically, how to make games. I've yet to even buy L4D, but I will now.

L4D Boycott "Doin Work"

take a note console fanboys.

No... this just proves it's the same exact game. It's a smart move but it really just shows that it's the biggest rehash in existence for this to work.

So all my L4D stuff will work with the second!!?? So why buy the second if its nothing new?

Where's the love for the XBox version.

Not necessarily. The PS2 plays PS1 games but the PS1 won't play PS2 games.

See?

i like the fact LFD content will work with LFD2. it'll save me buying LFD since I haven't yet.
sonarus  +   2219d ago
Just thought i would point out that user created is for PC and not for 360. So this should be in PC section instead of 360
I did not murder him  +   2219d ago
whoops!

I guess the only solid excuse the "supposed" angry L4D fans had to back up the petition is not valid now.

Value?

Valve?

Stupid Bot?
Pandamobile  +   2220d ago
David, stop with the trolling. Valve is leading the way with digital distribution. Their games have some of the best replay value around.
xxxKilAxxx  +   2220d ago
uuuummmmmm
does this mean you could play as zoey nude in l4d 2
Pandamobile  +   2220d ago
Within 10 minutes of L4D2 being unlocked on Steam, someone will port the original survivors with their sounds and everything into L4D2.
DavidMacDougall  +   2220d ago
And i'll use it! Like 6 months after the games out and its half price.
mrv321  +   2220d ago
I'd rather it be the otherway around that would be funny.
DeepInterludium  +   2220d ago
So this is basically confirming that L4D2 is slight upgrade to the original engine. And that L4D2 should be a discounted expansion pack for L4D2 instead of a full price game...
Pandamobile  +   2220d ago
Valve games are always cheaper than other games. That's why Valve has so many fans. They'll hold 50% off sales on their newest game and it will sell more during that weekend sale than the first week of its release. Valve are marketing geniuses and have the software to back it up.

Edit:

LEFT 4 DEAD 2 CAN NOT POSSIBLE BE DLC.

It's larger than the first game. If you have an Xbox, do you honestly expect to download a 10 GB DLC package off of Live? The size for an update is 800 MB.

Yeah , I hope L4D2 will turn out to be DLC too.
I just hate the new heroes casts , how unrecognizable looks for them....
leeger  +   2219d ago
@5.1
so L4D2 will be on two disc because it's 10gb?
GIJeff  +   2219d ago
panda
the size of the second is large because its the first game, plus whatever they did to mod it to call it "2". The first game is close to 5 gigabytes. so, this new one only adds a few gigs. so the dlc would only be ~3-4 gigs. so, yeah, this is valve ripping people off some more.
Cerberus_Hunter  +   2220d ago
see
I wonder if this and the other stuff they have talk about since e3 was planned before the boycott.
leeger  +   2219d ago
oops wrong post

It will be about 10 GB on PC. They have to compress the textures and cut some sound files to get it on the 8 GB DVD.
DarkBlood  +   2219d ago
so a pc dvd has a larger gb size or is it some kind of compression that holds that much then once on the hardrive it expands right? if im making any sense that is
Pandamobile  +   2219d ago
PC games don't run off of discs. You just install it to your computer and then you don't need it any more.

Valve games don't need discs at all considering you can just download it off of Steam. Orange Box on PC was two DVDs, but on 360 it was one because they cut a lot of sounds and took some texture detail out in order to fit the 8 GB size budget.
DarkBlood  +   2219d ago
oh ok except for needing the disc in there just to play the game thats already on the computer
Pandamobile  +   2219d ago
Very few games need the game to start. There's fixes you can get so that you don't need to have the disc in there, and with Steam, you don't even need the disc to install the game.
leeger  +   2219d ago
so basically if you have a 360 you don't need 10gb of space to download the game, you probably need around 8gb or less.
GamingNexus  +   2219d ago
This was confirmed at E3
We did an interview with Doug at E3 on June 4th and he said this along with the mention of increasing the size of the L4D 1 team... if you wanted another source of confirmation

As I've said before I'm looking forward to L4D 2. My only problem is that I don't like the new survivors at all. I liked the originals a lot better.
