Rumor: Left 4 Dead Headed To PS3
We've probably made it clear in the past that we're not the biggest fans of Valve here at PSXE, but that doesn't mean they're not a talented development team. A game like Left 4 Dead looks great, and if it really does come to the PlayStation 3, we'd be very interested to learn more about it...
Currently, the Valve/EA zombie slasher production is only scheduled for the Xbox 360 and PC, but according to the latest "Bonus Round" episode over at GameTrailers, it's obvious that the game is also listed for the PlayStation 3. Earlier, EA did say it's very possible that Left 4 Dead might pop up for Sony's platform in "winter 2008," and Valve chimed in by saying a PS3 version was definitely "possible." (source- PSBeyond) Based on everything we've seen and heard about the game thus far, this is one title that could turn out to be a fantastic addition to the PS3's library. Alone in the Dark doesn't appear to be the spectacular survival/horror game we were hoping for - based on 360 reviews - so maybe instead of trying that one later this year, we can go for Left 4 Dead! Of course, it may have to compete with Capcom's blockbuster, Resident Evil 5, but, well...we all have our little obstacles to conquer.
As one final note, we really hope that if it does come to the PS3, Valve and EA actually decide to provide PS3 owners with a worthy version. By now, it really shouldn't be that difficult.
