Left 4 Dead came out last year on PC and Xbox 360. But not on PS3. Now, retailer GAME’s Australian website reckons it’s finally coming to Sony’s system.
Before the game launched, Valve’s Chet Faliszek said there’d be no PS3 version because, while porting from PC to Xbox 360 was a piece of cake, making a PS3 version would require starting from scratch.
Then a few weeks later, GAME’s UK website advertised a PS3 version. Back then, Valve once again denied its existence.
But the following day, Valve did admit publisher EA were interested in a PS3 version.
Between now and then, Left 4 Dead actually got released – only on PC and 360 – and all that chatter of a PS3 version seems to have died down. Except GAME still reckons it’s coming, as a new listing on the retailer’s Australian website indicates.
Typically we’d suggest you take such retailer misinformation with a grain of salt. However, the solitary user “review” that accompanies the listing gives us pause for thought:
Dude this game is awesome! I just got the PS3 version and I must say it is sooooooooooooooo much better than the Xbox 360 one. Included are the DLC that are not even available on the other versions yet plus there are extra zombies and campaigns. An extra exclusive zombie is the KRATOS zombie based on the hit game series “God of War”. He only appears sometimes and its random when a player is allocated to him 😀 Multiplayer has been expanded to 32 players per game! And all this and more are exclusive to the PS3 version and you would be nuts not to get this one! Go now! Order it now or you will regret it!
Pause for thought… and then uproarious laughter.
Left 4 Dead (PS3) [GAME, thanks Nicholas!]
