That's very good and so much for L4D2 being a rushed game. That statement got tossed out the window once the game came out. Congrats Valve.

Port this game to the PS3 half decent and you've got another sale right here.

I bought it for the PC and love it but have to admit, you could expect at least another million in sales if they released a PS3 version. Especially one that works well with the PSN.

van-essa2959d ago

PS3 owners all game gaming PCs, so if they really wanted the game they'd get the PC ("superior) version.

TheBand1t2959d ago

lol, really any PC released nowadays can play a Valve game.

"So much for the boycott. lol "

you didn't really follow the boycott did you? Most of the major issues boycotters had were addressed by Valve with the promise the Valve would support Left 4 Dead instead of trying to milk it. They flew out the boycott group leaders so that they could try out l4d2 before it launched...

You really need to follow this stuff for the next time before you make yourself look like a fool, lol.

What the hell is wrong with some of you. "Oh noes! He want's to play it on his console of choice! That's blasphemy!"

I don't have a gaming PC. I don't use XBL on my 360. If Left 4 Dead 2 were ported to the PS3 I would play it.

What's there to disagree with? Are you saying I wouldn't play it if it were on the PS3? I can't believe that 12 people above felt it necessary to jam the disagree button because I want to play Left 4 Dead. Are you the Taliban and you think I shouldn't be allowed to play games?

This is a site for gamers. If you disagree with someone because he wants to play Left 4 Dead in and article about Left 4 Dead, I think you're visiting the wrong site.

Wonder what the % of those sales are for PC & 360. PC40% & 360 60%? That sounds kinda about right don't you think?

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat2959d ago

Wow, evrfighter, why so touchy?

It sounds to me like you might be one of the hypocrites that cried boycott and then bought the game anyway. lol

Sorry if I touched a nerve.

And still an $82 million loss for EA.

Great news Left 4 Dead 2 is a great game I'm glad it will do good almost at 3 million which it should easily do. Scavenger mode is just awesome.

Halo3 MLG Pro2959d ago

Well deserved. Such an awesome franchise.

MajestieBeast2959d ago

Its just a mod turned turned into a franchise.

kwyjibo2959d ago

And so was Team Fortress, and so was Counter-Strike.

No one cares when they're AAA.

"Its just a mod turned turned into a franchise. "

I never have seen one on my bud list play the new game and my bud list is almost maxed out on Live. Quite a few are old L4D1 players like me

sack_boi2959d ago

But I thought your X360 had been collecting dust since Gears 2?
