Valve Confirms Left 4 Dead 2 is Not Coming to PlayStation 3
Over the http://www.joystiq.com/2009/06/20/ea-offiical-site-lists-ps3-version-of-left-4-dead-2/ the http://www.ea.com/games/left-4-dead-2 had a Left 4 Dead 2 PS3 version listed (pictured below) in the "Coming Soon" section, with their 'games' page showing a placeholder box art for the title as well.
Since then, the EA Web site has been updated and no longer includes the PS3 listing... however, Valve's Doug Lombardi had this to say:
"That's a typo. Check the trailer - 'exclusively on Xbox 360 and PC.'
So there you have it... no Left 4 Dead 2 on the PS3, at least for the time being anyway.
Lol left 4 dead 2 wont port to ps3 for the time being?? and definitely sure! left 4 dead (1st game) is still on time being! lmao! Im done with left 4 deads valves game its time to move on! im just waiting for a lot of games in my ps3 in 2010!
what does this company have against sony? i think they'd sell more copies on the ps3 seeing since u cant hack the ps3 yet i hate valve with a passion
Their reasons are given that the PS3 is too difficult to develop for. They "just want to make games" not spend all their time figuring out an obscure SDK. I'm not saying anything bad about PS3 (I own one) just paraphrasing what was said in an article not very long ago.
I'm sick and tired of hearing how "developers" are not making the transition to PS3. It comes down to money not time or effort. Microsoft is paying developers to make games only for their system, and is stopping game developers from making games for their competition! simply put, Microsoft does not want competition.
This is sickening, I will for now on boycott any developer that only wants to play with MS, I will refuse to purchase any game that only wants to develop for MS and no other. I suggest that everyone that agrees with me do the same.
