TVGB: "Valve's zombie apocalypse continues, aka Left 4 Dead 2, exceeded publisher EA's sales expectations last year, CEO John Riccitello said today during a conference call detailing the company's Q3 fiscal 2010 earnings."
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.
So much for the boycott. lol
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.
PS3 owners all game gaming PCs, so if they really wanted the game they'd get the PC ("superior) version.
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?
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.
Well deserved. Such an awesome franchise.
Its just a mod turned turned into a franchise.
And so was Team Fortress, and so was Counter-Strike. No one cares when they're AAA.
Like Counter Strike? fail
"Its just a mod turned turned into a franchise. " I don't think even captain picards facepalm will do this comment justice. lol
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
But I thought your X360 had been collecting dust since Gears 2?
If they ported the game over to the PS3 the sales would double I admit I would play the Ps3 version to see how well it ran on the console. But no one at Valve has the drive to even take the challange to develop for the PS3 what a shame.
I just don't feel like this game is a real "next-gen" experience. It feels very cheap and that bothers me when Valve is behind it. Besides Half-Life, valve really doesn't do any other games at that level. I don't think game deserves the sales and am quite baffled as to why the teenager 'xbox' generation actually puts their money into this 1/2 a$$ crap, but a dollar spent is a vote. SO if this is the kinda game you want, then keep buying it. I personally wont.
It is a great game..playing the versus as one of the infected is very fun lol.
Apparently this doesn't include steam sales. That's pretty good going.
Bet Steam did around 6 million for L4D 2
So that is 2.9 million dumbass console gamers. Valve = PC. Besides this game with run on pretty much any PC < 3 years.
If this was on PS3 and PC then 2.9 million in 4 months across 2 platforms would be a flop.
This IP is the only reason I own my 360. Best Coop game ever made!
I want L4D on PS3. =(
