Sony really missed out this generation with Valve skipping these two games over the PS3. However, now that Gabe is apparently friendly with Sony (seems that way), do you think Valve should port these two titles to PS3 or PS4? Seems like he's missing out on a goldmine not releasing those titles on PS3. I understand why he didn't in the first place but I feel sorry for people who want those games but game exclusively on PS3.

Do you think with the PS4 with PC architecture that now Valve will someday release those two titles on PSN? I think they should. Just release them for $19.99 each and watch the money flow.

Note: Just to clarify, I own the PC versions of both games. I'm more saying this because I know some people that only game on PS3 that want it.

Nope. PS would get Left 4 Dead 3, if Valve could count to 3.

Just buy the damn game on PC, it goes on sale for 5 dollars like every other month.   And it's a source engine game, so it will run on a toaster

Maybe a collection for the PS3 if Left 4 Dead 3 was ever announced, but I doubt that'll ever happen.

hope L4D3 is on the way, the other 2 games are so awesome

Maybe on Ps4 since it follows PC architecture.

I think it was because Left4Dead was released when Valve still hated the PS3. It wasn't until Portal 2 that Valve started to like the PS3.

Orange Box port was nasty and Gabe disliked Sony for a while.

I figured it had something to do with The Orange Box. I heard it wasn't so hot on the PS3.

Maybe someday it'll come. Better late than never, I say.

I have both games on Steam. I just feel sorry for people who only game on PS3 (some of my friends).

it'd be easier to just get it on PC, which also has steam workshop integrated

Yeah, l4d2 is really fun with friends. Though I can't imagine trying to play it with a controller especially in versus

Yeah, EA ported The Orange Box to PS3 and it was garbage. Screen tearing and framerate drops galore while playing Portal. Blegh. Picked up the PC version on Steam when I grabbed the Valve Pack during Christmas sale and was amazed how much better Portal played on PC.

I watched an interview once with Gabe Newell explaining why he disliked the PS3 and he makes plenty of good points. However. ever since Portal 2, he's been pretty friendly with Sony so I just think Valve would make a crapload of more money releasing the two games on PS3 or PS4. There's definitely a demand for them from people who never played them.

Given that Valve has already distanced themselves from Win8, I highly doubt that.

Windows 7 is apart of the MS family and will be welcome. As well the Windows Phone version :D

This. Its funny because PS3 version of Portal 2 is better than the 360 version. So at first Valve was talking crap then on a newer game they pump out the best console version on PS3. its funny.

yup, back then Valve used to bash the PS3 anytime they could. The were mad that their own game, Orange Box, came out crappy on the PS3 port, but instead of admitting that it was hard for them to port the PS3, they just bashed the PS3.

No because they would have to create the game again from the ground up. If they just tried to port it (which was still be a pain in the @ss) it would take awhile and would not play or look that great. I don't Valve wants to spend money on a older title like that, just to make it for the PS3. If anything, they will make Left 4 Dead 3 for the PS4 and XBox Infinity.

Well they weren't talking crap. It WAS a lame system and weird architecure to get used to. Some devs adapted, like Valve, and some never did, like Bethesda.

TheFadeForever
That would suck. I wouldn't buy a Steambox just to play that game. PC gamers would hate Valve is they did that, so it probably won't happen that way.

I don't care if they do or not. Not interested in a zombie horde game.

That would be a pretty freaking bold move if they went Steambox exclusive, but after the initial fanboy hate was over it could pay off big for them.  Especially if they a full lineup to go with it (Portal 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Team Fortress 3 that's more MMO based) and a huge sale on it's current software lineup for new buyers of the Steambox.

#40 Posted by PAL360 (26717 posts) -

Probably too late for PS3, but i would love a Source 2.0 Left 4 Dead 3, for next gen platforms. After all these years, L4D still has the best coop formula in gaming!

They must be trolling, I spent like 3 hours just in one session playing with the family on LAN.  The laughs went on for hours after the line came up "In Memory of Louis" who tragically died while the rest of us escaped on a boat!

Left 4 Dead 3, sure, if it actually comes out some day. But if they were gonna release the first two on a Sony platform they'd have done it by now

Seriously? Did EA have to create the original Mass Effect from the ground up when they ported that to the PS3?

I'm not being cynical when I ask that question. I'm being serious. If it's that's difficult then understood but I'd be surprised if it was.

Who cares I have both for PC and barely even played them, as cool as they were they felt like mods.

I don't think Valve is much concerned about developing anything anymore, all they have to do is relax and let Steam revenues roll in it's a pretty good deal if you ask me.

I agree. L4D and Portal were not even ideas from Valve.
