There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned console bashing from a developer to fan the eternal platform flame war. Today’s flame-baiting comment comes courtesy of Valve’s Chet Faliszek. In an interview with CVG, Faliszek says that the Xbox 360 community is “head and shoulders above the PS3.”
“Right now for Left 4 Dead 2 we’re looking at PC and 360 because the community aspects really fit the game – it’s all about playing with your friends,” Faliszek said. “But that’s the short term. What we’re looking at for the long term… if it works out, it works out. Right now don’t not buy it on the 360 because you think it’s coming out on the PS3 – it’s not going to. Right? It’s coming out on the PC and 360. It’s going to be exclusive for that.”
Faliszek has provided some more ammunition for the PC and 360 camps, leaving the PS3 camp scrambling to retaliate. The pieces have been set. The comment section below is the battlefield. Have at it.
