Left 4 Dead Proves the Most Promising at PAX 2008

Labor Day has come and gone and with it, the hordes of gamers that descended on Seattle for Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) 2008. The annual gaming convention started by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik draws thousands of die-hard gamers each year, but this year, a record-shattering 58,000 attendees flooded the floor. Game producers also had an unprecedented presence at PAX, offering up a veritable cornucopia of twitchy delights ranging from precious to petrifying.

Among the frightful wares available for play at PAX were Microsoft's post-apocalyptic sequel Gears of War 2, the endlessly anticipated Fallout 3 from Bethesda, EA's Dead Space, and Left 4 Dead by Seattle's own Valve Studios.

Left 4 Dead Proves the Most Promising at PAX 2008

Somebody didn't do their research before submitting this; as of now it's only on 360.

Personally I am hoping for a PS3 version, complete with the multiplayer and Trophies and hopefully DLC support.

Apparently you didn't click on the full article as it covers games other than Left 4 Dead.

Edit: no problem, I have had my share of those moments to.

I expected it to be just Left 4 Dead, so I didn't click it. I apologize, my mistake.

for XBOX 360, pretty strong lineup for Microsoft like usual.The best exclusvies. Gears of War 2, Left 4 Dead, Fable 2, and every major multi platform game.

The console has the best price by far now.

I don't even know what the battle is, it's a clean sweep for Microsoft again.

PS3 still trails 360's userbase by 3 to 1 in North America, and it's Microsoft being aggressive with price cuts. It looks like PS3 is only gonna fall further behind in North American this holiday.

There is no battle here, it's a no contest for XBOX 360. Sony shot themselves in the foot from the opening gates, and Microsoft won't let go of Sony's throat.

who knows maybe L4D could be heading to the PS3 as well.

I highly doubt it, unless they pull the BioShock affect and port this game a year later.

I might buy this game, nothing better than fast paced Zombies, survivors, guns. Its like they took my fantasy of a horror movie and made it into a game. I don't care much for the graphics but the frame rate is amazing as well as the AI.
