It loooks like another zombie based ‘360 exclusive’ could be making it’s way to PS3. A forum poster on N4G.com has gotten himself a ‘pre-order card’ (seen here) from American retailer Best Buy for the game on PS3. Of course this isn’t confirmation, but with the ammount of rumor (and demand) for the game how can this not be being made or in Valve’s plans? Come on Valve ship it out to EA and have done with it, us PS3 owners NEED this game.

Best Buy was seen advertising Final Fantasy VII on PS3 though, so I wouldn’t hold my breath.

For those who are still in love with the charicatured antics of Valve’s Team Fortress 2, this is gonna come as a bit of kick in the crotch. It has been revealed today that neither Valve or EA have plans to release downloadable content or class updates for the PS3 version of the popular shooter.

The updates to the heavy, pyro and medic, as well as the new maps, are already available on the PC and have been announced for the Xbox 360, but ther are no plans to release them to PS3 owners. Although Gabe Newell want’s Valve to support the PS3 in the future he obviously didn’t mean this near a future.

In a recent interview with 1Up.com, Valve’s co-founder and resident PS3 hater, Gabe Newell said something nice about the PS3 (sort of). He said that he thinks Valve should make an effort to support the PlayStation 3 more. Hit the jump for the quote and more. Continue reading

Left 4 Dead Coming To PS3? by Anthony Barlow

A few months ago we reported that Left 4 Dead, valve’s new zombie shooter, would be coming to PS3 via EA. Valve swiftly denied these claims but now Play.com are stirring things again. The image above is a ‘temporary packshot’ for the game on UK online retailer Play.com. The same thing has also been seen at GAME.co.uk

They state that the game is coming to PS3 this year on November 7th. Of course this could be retailers jumping on what was said in OPM but it seems unlikely.

Kotaku have contacted Valve and Doug Lombardi responded with this:

“Currently, there is no PS3 version of L4D in production”.

With just under a month for the game to be released, it’s unlikely the game is coming out. Unless Doug’s lying that is.

No, Gabe Newell has not had a sudden change of heart, but it seems Valve’s Doug Lombardi has. Gabe Newell has said in the past that the PS3 is “a waste of time” and wouldn’t even develop the PS3 version of ‘The Orange Box’.Well it looks like Newell is about to get a bite on the arse by the PS3 (not perfect, but it’ll do).

The PS3 is going from strength to strength worldwide and it now looks like Valve have sat up and taken notice of Sony’s chrome and black juggernaut. Doug Lombadi spoke to CVG, hit the jump to see what he had to say.

Left 4 Dead Coming To PS3 – Whoot! by Anthony Barlow

Now I was really pissed that Valve’s ‘Left 4 Dead’ was only coming to PC and Xbox 360, then I remembered the stuff with ‘The Orange Box’ and how EA ended up developing it. I was really hoping that this would be the case with this game too and it looks like I was right.

According to the Official PlayStation Magazine the game IS coming to the PS3 and will be developed by EA. Below you’ll find what the mag had to say.

“Valve’s survival horror game Left 4 Dead is coming to PS3, but EA will be taking on development duties in-house,”

You can see said quote in the image at the top of the post.

Also mentioned is that Rockstar are working on a “cool lisence”. I wonder what it is. It seems to have been confirmed but i’m still waiting for this to be officially confirmed so it’s still rumor for now.

Portal On PSN – Nope by Anthony Barlow

Another one outta the rumor mill here. It had been rumored that the supposed Xbox 360 exclusive Portal: Still Alive was to eventually come to PSN, whoot! Well no whoot because that rumor has been squashed by Valve themeselves.

Valve told CVG that no the game would not be making it’s way onto the PlayStation Network. It does seem stupid for Valve to throw money away like this but it’s a well known fact that Gabe Newell hates the PS3 with a vengence, which sorta hurts it’s chances. Hey there’s still hope, The Orange Box made it out didn’t it.
