Valve marketing boss Doug Lombardi has extinguished hopes of seeing a PlayStation 3 version of Left 4 Dead out before the year's end, stating there is "zero chance" of seeing a port this year.
Next year, then.
PS3 has WAY to many games this year. Even if it WAS done already, they aren`t stupid enough to release it around R2,LBP,KZ2.
Killzone2 > L4D I don't even want it to come to the ps3
So their strategy: If it sells well, then port it But they FORGOT the fact: Porting the game means no sales especially for valve. And the most important fact of ALL: Ps3 owners will have lots of games to play by the time left 4 dead gets ported.
Well if they do they better make sure it's a good port.
Past Headline: "Left 4 Dead coming to PS3, ported by EA" HighDefinition - 66 days 9 hours ago PM Track Ignore1.8 - EA Like mostly everyone else is beginning to LOVE the PS3 so, I wouldn`t worry about this port. BTW, this game looks amazing, and had me reconsidering getting another 360, but I don`t wanta pay for XBL again. So I REALLY hope it comes to the PS3. http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... Now Fast Foward>>>>>> Todays Headline Reads>>>>> "Valve: "Zero chance" of Left 4 Dead PS3 this year" HighDefinition - 3 hours ago PM Track Ignore1.1 - NEXT year it is....... PS3 has WAY to many games this year. Even if it WAS done already, they aren`t stupid enough to release it around R2,LBP,KZ2. Wow, I guess suddenly it doesn't look "amazing" anymore, ha ha I own both consoles but you would think a normal ps3 owner would like to see as many games released on the ps3 as possible, sure exclusives are what diffirentiate the consoles and sure games like LBP have been talked about alot and will be available just like Uncharted recieved alot of praise by ps3 owners yet COD4 which launched in the same time frame(a week apart I think) has easily outsold it on the ps3 alone. (yep, a great multiplat game, who would 'a guessed) Remember outside of n4g there are ps3 owners who actually like multiplatform games and amazingly they might want to play L4D the same date its released on PC/360....nah, it can't be, lmfao. JOY
What are you trying to imply? Cause I have ALWAYS liked the idea of this game. I don`t deny that...... I`m happy it`s coming to PS3 especially in 2009 so I actually WILL play it, and I don`t have to pay to play it on PSN!! So......your point is? BTW, the ONLY games that make me miss my 360 are...... 1.MassEffect 2.Viva Pinata 3.Left for Dead
Zero chance I'll be buying ANY Valve game.....EVER
Yeah, I don't see what you're trying to say. HD never contradicted himself, so that whole rant you just typed out was basically pointless. I'm glad L4D is coming to the PS3, I just hope its a decent port. The game looks great, and I really enjoy co-op experiences so I'll probably get it as long as its playable. I try to hate Valve, but I fudgin love Half Life so much. The PC is usually the best choice, but I'd go for L4D on the PS3. And HD is right. If they had released it in 2008 the timing would have been bad. There are a lot of exclusive games coming for the PS3 in these last few months. The sales would definitley be better during a dryer period in 2009. Anyway, has it even been 100% confirmed that this game is coming for the PS3? I'm so confused. They keep changing their minds.
but if you can't see the point I'm making then its only because you have blinders on....when the news is positive about the game coming over to the ps3, his comment sounds excited about the game, but as soon as the news leaves the games release on the ps3 in doubt, his comment basicly discredit the game by implying it won't do well with "too many" sony exclusives coming to the ps3...come on its so transparent....and a predictable pattern seen on n4g,(look around predictably all the known sony loyalists don't care about L4D, ha ha) and again it just goes against what we see in reality because COD4 proved any multiplat that turns out to be a great game will hold its own on any console no matter what exclusives are available. JOY
interesting :) might wait for the ps3 version then.. if its a crappy port, will buy PC.. otherwise ps3 :)
OK...... If you don`t see what I`m saying YOU have blinders on, I want the game (L4D) but, I wouldn`t buy it over LBP, KZ2 or R2. Can you wrap your little brain around that?
I see in one post, HD says he like the idea of the game and it interests him then in another post he claims it would silly of them to ship a port of the game this year when there are already tons of other games coming in a similar genre. Looks to me like you are tossing out flame bait. Sorry, but no takers here.
Poor Xbots Poor Xbots, of course we don't want this flop. Poor Xbots, this game is 6-8 hrs long, no cutscenes, and outdated graphics. Poor Xbots, if it even came to the PS3, the graphics will be uncompressed and we will have the superior version. Poor Xbots
Er couldn't care less Valve!!! The Videos i have seen of it look SH*T!!! The Zombie Level in 'TimeSplitters:Future Perfect' on PS2 Looks better than that CR*P!!! +COMING SOON ON PSN... Fat Princess[Gabe Newell] ONLY on PS3 ;-D
i dont buy Valve games anyways.
Thank goodness I have way to many games to get this year anyway.
I was worried about they may decide to release the game this year. Anyway between now and rest of the year a lot wallets are going to very sad. There is just way to many good games coming.
“There’s zero chance of it happening this year,” This year? That's a funny way to finish the sentence when talking about an exclusive isn't it. Basically means a port will come in 09 surely? Dependent of success of course. Releasing so close to Gears doesn't seem like the best move. Should do well through Steam.
VALVe never ran around saying it was an exclusive; they just didn't want anything to do with the PS3.
^^^ "VALVe never ran around saying it was an exclusive; they just didn't want anything to do with the PS3." 100% agree P.S: To the People who don't own a xbox 360 stop Whining Get the PC Version.
...So what? I'm too happy about exclusive games right now.
"Valve: "Zero chance" of Left 4 Dead PS3 this year" This year? So this means that we will have this pos game by next year? Please no. Spare yourselves time and money Valve, we don't want this 6 hr sh!t game.
Well of course seeing as it would take more than 2 months to port a game over to the PS3. TGSI
EDIT Sorry posted comment in the wrong place
has a zero chance of getting my money this year if ever. Just to piss everyone i will proably pirate it on x360 or PC when it comes out but then again i am not really into these sort of games.
Have fun playing playing your pirated L4D by yourself.
hate ta break it to ya but cracked 360's can still play online sure your taking a chance but lots of guys run em... not me but then again i lost interest in live or anything 360 after my second rrod
I can't wait to play L4D. I like the looks of the game and it seems intense as hell. As for Valve and the PS3, how many times can you burn a gamer with a bad port? Probably more than I think. They could just get a 360 instead of throwing money at stuff like Half Life.
The game is far from matching up to anything this winter. RFOM 2, LBP, Gears 2... So seriously i do not care there is other better games.
Thank God then. I'm already buying 10 more games before the end of the year. This would just be over-kill lol.
well i think its a big lost for them if they not going to do games on the ps3. but the fact that they getting pushed to do games on the ps3 due of the console market thats making me sick. i know its business but for me its not right.
between r2,lbp, and others I would have very limited time to play this. anyways, if this does come to ps3 I would only buy if valve was handling the port.
I echo the sentiments of others in that there are way too many good games first party and third party already coming out for the PS3 within the next 3 months. Not only that but unless Valve does the port in house and supports it, unlike Orange Crap, I would have absolutely no interest in it. What Valve failed to realize when they snubbed the PS3 is that PS3 owners are a very nasty bunch. If you snub us we will almost definately write you off for any future purchases.
was gonna get this on my pc anyways.. my low end pc can run this i have resistance with 8 player coop to look foward too anyways :)
old news. already knew this http://www.n4g.com/industry... but since now its the headline the hate will come again. jealousy is a b!tch.
There is a word for someone who buys a Valve game on a console: NOOB!
I tried Half-Life 1 on the PS2 and it was HORRIBLE. VALVe's products have and always will be best on the PC.
This one isn't developed by Valve. And a different team consisting of one of the head online guys for Halo 2 and 3 is developing port. As long as they keep their promise with the content the 360 version will be great. The 360 version also has voice chat while the PC version doesn't.
@ 13.2: What the hell are you talking about? The game is being developed by VALVe (particularly former employees of Turtle Rock Studios). And the PC version will have the same voice chat functionality that every other Source game to date has.
Why does everyone care so much? I'm sure most people who game have PCs powerful enough to run this, and a PC is where L4D (or any Valve game) will shine.
Do we want it? thats a big no for me.
Remember PS3 fandroids PS3 still has no zombie game... THats sh!tty for zombie game fans It also has allmost no (J)RPG's out It also lacks (exclusive) titles in the racing genre. Actually the PS3 is gimped in many genres.
Honestly doesn't look that great to me. I don't think I would buy it anyway over the insane amount of good games coming out this year. Plus Valve hates us PS3 owners...
They don't hate the owners; they hate the console architecture. VALVe is a PC developer and you have to admit that the PS3 doesn't have anywhere near the same architecture that a PC does.
Yes the PS3 definitely does not have similar architecture to a PC I understand that. If you want to be technical, than YES Valve doesn't hate US console owners, but they hate our consoles so its all the same to me. Anyway, I'm pretty sure you knew what I meant...
To be honest I can care less about Left 4 Dead.
There's alot of bitterness in these comments.
If it looks like Bio Shock, keep it.
oh but system shock is better right cause it was on playstation? lol wtf
The game will be cool but Meh! Kinda sick of the ol' 360 hand me downs anyways. Oh wait I own both systems...
Sucks for you guys. Stop pretending you don't care. Game Informer ranked Left 4 Dead number 1 game at E3. For comparison, LBP got #8 while Resistance 2 got #21. Left 4 Dead is getting rave previews from everybody that comes across it. A lot of excitement is starting to build for Left 4 Dead. You guys are missing out.
valve makes good games but hopeully if they do port it will come out good and i will probably buy it regardles when tax time comes i will be getting a 360 and a nice big tv happy gamming
Great game but it had too many problems on PS3. Who wants to go through that again....? Anyone? Yeah, so I don't think some people are pretending they don't care about this game coming to PS3 or not when the port could be trash.
I dont think its gonna be a big seller...
Just stea....I mean pick up the PC version. Chances are, if your PC was made anytime during the past 25-30 years, you can run this game just fine. I wonder when we'll get to see more of the Source engine's successor.
Have fun playing your pirated L4D alone.
Being a bit too serious aren't you? Plus, you could burn a 360 game and play on Live just like everyone else if you wanted.
So get it on the PC then, I don't see what the big deal is. The Source Engine WILL NOT kill your PC; it isn't Crysis and a modest system would run the game fine. That and you won't have to pay $10 for a freaking console update that was free for PC users, *cough* TF2 360 *cough*. And don't give me that BS about "having" to charge users. Burnout content is large as hell and still comes out for FREE.
i think it's supposed to upset ps3 owners like: "see, you naughty 'elite' kids won't have our 'joe 6 pack' candy!" gee, like we care about their crappy PC ports, lol
booooooooooo??? You made me JUMP then!!! ;-D It's true we PS3 owners don't give a Flying-F**K about this game!!! ;-D LBP FTW!!!;-P
LBP is pure gaming genius! bubble for ya
Bubbles 4u;) Yeah i saw you playing it;) If thats just the beta!!!!!!!!!!! ;-P WOW!!!;) Full game out in a few weeks time!!! OMG!!! ;-P
Can't wait to pick this up for my PC, looks like an awesome game.
Please allow me to be the first.. OWNED.
so what the 360 version in transferred from the PC version so the pc one well be a tad better. plus it can run on a 600 dollar PC so everyone including ps3 and 360 owners are going to get it on the PC. their for they well never transfer it because everyone with a ps3 that wants it well already have it and valve would loss a boatload of money.
I honestly can't see where the hype is coming from for this game bar the fact it's being made by "Valve", even though it's not actually being made by "Valve", it's by Turtle Rock Studios who have, so far, made nothing of note (unless you count an XBox port of CounterStrike and maps for CS:S as being of note). Game will get mediocre scores, because it really doesn't look like it has the gameplay or graphics to back up the hype. If this wasn't currently a 360 exclusive (which it blantantly isn't anymore), you know for a fact you wouldn't remotely care.
Turtle Rock Studios is Valve South. Valve has been working on the game from the beginning.
The fact that most 360 exclusives if not all 360 exclusives can be bought for the PC makes the decision on which next gen system to get easy. Multiplatforms come to both systems. PS3 exclusives mostly only available on PS3 while 360 exclusives are available for PC. Besides PS3 exclusives are better quality wise and quantity wise.
