Blizzard dont insult another console.

Blizzard dont use bullshit excuses for why they wont dev on a certain console.

And yet, there is crying out for Valve's games on the PS3.  One would think the hatred would settle it, but it isn't.  It seems like the absurd notion that a console owner feels rejected by a developer.  Go figure.

By whom?

Do I need to find threads about people wanting Left 4 Dead on the PS3?

Please find thread where people are wanting it.

Not threads about some random rumor from Amazon or something.

Please do.

Threads that say that Valve is stupid to not port Left 4 Dead to the PS3, because they LOSE money if they don't.  Well, people need to WANT a game on a console for it to sell, right? 

By the way, it isn't good to ask for some threads for something like this.  One can find people over the Internet who want anything.  Well, unless maybe it is the game Africa.  There isn't a big demand for the 360 to get that game.

Just to clarify though. Me personally, I don't care at all if valve don't want to make ps3 games. They don't have to go multiplatform. It's their choice. I just think they are a bunch of pricks for taking so many unecassary jabs at the ps3. I think it's kind of funny that they actually cite their laziness to learn the architecture as a reason they wont make a ps3 game. Lazy newbs. lol

Personally though, valve have really fallen in my eyes. Regardless of where L4D2 comes out I won't be getting it after playing the demo. Is it just me or have their games not evolved much since the days of counterstrike. It's like I'm playing the same games from them over and over and they are even too lazy to add a new coat of paint. It's the same engine they used last gen and it's finally gotten to the point where it's showed it's age to me and I'm going to turn it away for some fresher meat.

Valve didn't develop Counter-Strike.  The community around Half-Life did.  They just published it.  I will say Portal and Team Fortress 2 are good though.



Blizzard games are not designed for console and you can see when playing them that significant changes would be required for them to work on console.

Valve has been making fps like a dozen other companies but somehow they don't bring their games to some console while their competitors manage it ( IW, Guerilla, ...) and then they give bs excuses of why they do not...

And please stop comparing both, Blizzard is a much bigger company/successfull company than Valve...
Wow alone is probably worth 4-5 times what the whole Valve company is worth.....

Personnaly I don't really care and were they to start developing for the PS3 I woudn't buy their shit anyway. There are enough other developers that make good enough games...( lets not forget than for all the noise Left4 Dead got, it got outsold handilly by CoD:WaW on the 360..)



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

Come on Op man, dah, when has blizzard done anything but pc. And Activision handles consles being muli-plat. I swear some people ask obvious questions all the time in the thread/forums.

http://games.ign.com/objects/025/025125.html

Blizzard started off as a third-party developer for DOS, Mac, Genesis and SNES platforms, creating games like The Lost Vikings, Rock n' Roll Racing, Blackthorne and The Death and Return of Superman.  There was also an SNES version of Starcraft done. 

Blizzard just doesn't to develop games for consoles now.

Well i truly thank you for the info, I still think most people are like I was ignorant of this and therefore dont care. They assume blizzard always made pc games and thats it.

When you hit it big on a given platform, the past tends to get ignored.  In the case of Blizzard, I just wish they would do console stuff.  I am not about to drop money on a gaming PC at this point.  PCs have too few games, and the cost of the rigs are too much.



Dude let the thread die this is the reason why people dont like valve like cgi and others are saying.

So, every time Valve says yet another thing about the PS3, we will get more threads like this on here?

maybe valve just does not have the talent, most good developers look for the challenge, when the game is done and its a great one, as a developer you feel very good, valve just does not have the talent to develop for the ps3, instead of being real about it, they use bull shit excusses and insult a console and the people playing on it, for me valve does not make anything i have to have , lsft for dead is good but many many better shooters out there, so screw em

Portol was AMAZING. Something new and fresh. Team Fortress 2 was also incredible. Half life even today is one of the greats. Although I don't think they did anything amazing or new with half life since half life 2. Left 4 dead though, was a title that made me feel ripped off. Yes, it was fun. A good deal of fun actually. But there wasn't enough content for the purchase price which was made worse by the fact that they didn't support it like they said they would. I played the Left 4 Dead 2 demo though and me and my girlfreind agreed that it just wasn't very good. In a years time, we changed out minds. Too many incredible games have come out to play a lazy game. And that's what valve's games are too me now. And I realized it just a couple nights ago playing the demo and is the reason they won't make a ps3 game. They are lazy. They are using the same engine from last gen and not doing as much as I think they should or can to push out an amazing, incredible game that pushes the boundries. I know they can do better and I expect it. If they want to go the easy route all the time, I won't buy. They should get off their lazy assess and do the best job they can to actually push boundaries and make incredible games.

The op in that thread was laughably bad. But I hope you don't think that some awful blogs and stupid people actually make the rediculous comments Valve has made ok. This just in, Osama Ben Ladin blowing up the twin towers was ok, because we went to Iraq.
