We can't say we didn't see it coming, but to hear, straight from the mouths of Valve's Doug Lombardi and Gabe Newell, that PlayStation 3 owners are going to get the shit end of the Team Fortress 2 stick still hurts. I *have* that version! I also have the Steam and Xbox 360 versions, but still... ouch. 1UP confirmed with Gabe and Doug that the updates PC users are currently enjoying, which are coming to the 360 later this year won't be hitting the PS3. Why? Valve simply has no PS3 manpower to speak of. And EA is "not doing ongoing development on The Orange Box" on Sony's box. It's simple really, if you don't have the people, you can't do the work. The balls is in Electronic Arts' court, as it's responsible for the PlayStation version. We just hope that the boys and girls at EA do right by the few of us who opted for the PS3 SKU — and will think about this kind of stuff in the future. Team Fortress 2 Updates Not Coming For PlayStation 3 [1UP]
You know what? Forget Valve. I was even going to go so far as to rebuy TF2 for my laptop just to play online. But if they're going to completely abandon one of the releases?
I dunno, this irrtates me more than an exclusive would. With an exclusive we don't get the game. With this, we wasted money as we're not getting what everyone else gets. I call bullshit.
