Where is Left 4 Dead on PS3?

2 min read


While chatting with Valve and getting some hands on time with Left 4 Dead on Xbox 360, the folks from Kotaku report that the 360 version is looking and playing almost precisely the same as the PC version.

While the game sounds really great on both PC and Xbox 360, Kotaku raised a very valid question. Where is the PS3 version?

Chet Faliszek of Valve told them that the main reason is development time. While he says that porting the game over to the Xbox 360 is “almost like pushing an A button”. He then goes on to explain that the PS3 version essentially needs to be built up from scratch.

What this means is that the game definitely will be coming out for PS3 but it could be a while. In my opinion I think that it isn’t great that PS3 owners need to wait but I think it will be worth it if it means that Valve can produce a top quality port of the game for PS3 owners to enjoy.

There is no indication on when the PS3 version might be available so we will have to wait for word from Valve.

    Gee, no real surprise here, i mean take a look at Valve’s position with The Orange Box. They have no love for the PS3 but at least we got to play Portal.

    I wonder if they’ll palm the port over to another company to do again.

    I so want this to be good. Time to dust of dead rising for some fun in the meantime
