It's no secret that Valve's Gabe Newell isn't a staunch supporter of the PlayStation 3 -- well, that's putting it lightly. The Half-Life
creator actually referred to the system as "a waste of everyone's time"
. PS3 owners were likely disappointed (though not surprised) to learn that Turtle Rock Studios' (a recent addition to the Valve family
) upcoming zombocalypse survival sim Left 4 Dead
would be console exclusive to the Xbox 360
-- though a recent blurb in the latest issue of Official Playstation Magazine contradicts this oft-repeated claim
.The one-sentence newsbrief reads
, "Valve's survival horror game Left 4 Dead
is coming to PS3, but EA will be taking on development duties in-house." That's it -- no attribution for the report or timetable for the title's release. We expect that EA will soon deliver more info about the project
-- until then, we wait with bated breath, hoping that we don't have another Orange Box fiasco
on our hands.
