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.'

-Cheers"

Left 4 Dead Creation Tools Coming Next Week

50°
274w ago - While the campaigns that shipped with Left 4 Dead were all pretty good, you do get sick of them after a while. Which is where custom, user-generated campaigns come in.

Next week, Valve will be updating Left 4 Dead so that these custom missions - like the Resident Evil 3 mod we showed you earlier in the day - are both more prominent within the userbase and are easier to download and play.

To quote: Firstly, with this update map creators will be able to package their content into a single file (a .VPK). This will make displaying, downloading and installing the campaigns a cinch for other users.

The game's matchmaking system will also be updated to reflect this, with "extensive support for custom add-on campaigns". Valve explains:

"When creating or searching for a lobby, a new option named "Add-on campaign" will let you select from among the add-on campaigns that you have installed. You can then find games or lobbies as well as create a lobby for that campaign.

You can invite your friends, too. If they do not have the campaign installed, they will automatically be offered and an option to download it."

This is all going to be made possible via the release of the game's SDK (authoring tools), which after a stint in beta are going to be officially rolled out...
