Official Playstation Magazine's latest edition says that Left 4 Dead, Valve's forthcoming survival-horror title, will indeed be coming to Playstation 3. Electronic Arts will be in charge of the port. "Valve's survival horror game Left 4 Dead is coming to PS3, but EA will be taking on development duties in-house," says OPM, in an item noticed by many. (We saw it through N4G thanks to a tip from reader Nick T., and found the image at PlayStation Beyond). N4G mentions the PS3 Orange Box fiasco, also a collaboration between Valve and EA, and wonders if the bad will created there will keep PS3 players away from this, too. It's a fair question. As for that other item - Rockstar is working on a "cool" license? I am absolutely one billion percent certain that it's a game adaptation of The Ice Pirates. Space herpes?! On this ship?! Left 4 Dead Coming to PS3, Ported by EA [N4G.com] Picture
I don't have a high-end PC or a 360, and though I can't say I'm particularly interested in L4D, I'm interested to see what people say about EA's next Vale port.
Personally, I love my PS3 copy of The Orange Box. Aside from TF2, it runs great and I finally got to see what all the Half Life fuss was about. Fine, PS3 may be the 'worst version' of Half Life 2, but a bad port of a great game is still a great game.
Take the original Metal Gear, ported to the NES without the imput of Kojima or his team. My brother and I spent countless hours in that game, and we loved it. Years later I find out that was the worst version you could get. Fine, fair enough, maybe it was the worst version, but it was still a great game.
Porting a great game is like sex or pizza. Even if it's not great, it's still pretty damn good.
