PS3 Left 4 Dead has a “50-50 chance”

The whole Left 4 Dead PS3 thing is so messed up by now that I kind of wish they  would leave it for dead. But a game this great needs to be multi-console, so we’ll continue to hope for a PS3 port.

The latest on a PS3 version comes from Valve’s Doug Lombardi, who told CVG that a PS3 version is possible… in the most half-assed way ever.

“We’re always evaluating what’s happening in the marketplace and certainly something that’s happening in the last couple of months is that Sony’s managed to sell some boxes,” said Lombardi.

“So whether or not you like developing for that platform, if they’ve got millions of people connected to that platform and buying their games you have to take it seriously.” 

The PS3 odds? “50-50 right now,” said Lombardi.

“There’s zero chance of it happening this year. It’s something that’s being talked about right now as the game is gaining popularity and looking like it’s going to be a hit.”

It’s so funny how they don’t acknowledge the PS3 at all! But, hey, multiplatform is always good, and Valve is smart. We’ll remain hopeful.
