EA Russia mentions Left 4 Dead 2 for PS3 [Update]

Update: Listing has been taken down. It’s now a Xbox 360 only game again.

Update 2: EA insist both listings for Mass Effect 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 were posted in “error“.

Original Story: The EA Russia website has listed a PlayStation 3 version of Left 4 Dead 2.

Previously, Valve has categorically said before they aren’t working on the PS3, so either this is a massive fuck-up or EA Russia is doing the jump on everyone. It’s the former, almost certainly.

Ex-KGB will be called in to kill whoever put up the listings, accidental or not.

We’ll leave an email with Valve. For fun, like.

Earlier, the same site also listed a PS3 version of Mass Effect 2.

    It is sounding more and more like a generic 360/PS3 listing rather than actual PS3 versions, why wouldn’t they get people pumped for the PS3 versions if they actually existed…

    I would have believed Mass Effect 2 for the PS3, but Left for Dead 2 makes all this look just like a screw up by EA Russia.

    You should bear in mind that Valve’s stance on the PS3 is “we don’t want to retrain people to work on it,” they don’t have an ethical problem with their games appearing on it so long as they’re of good quality.

    EA’s port of The Orange Box isn’t nearly as bad as people make out, and given the technical improvements of the company’s PS3 titles — and the fact that they’ve actually been earning substantially more on the PS3 than the 360 lately — I wouldn’t be too surprised if we saw them taking porting duties into their own hands.

    That said I’m not taking a website listing as confirmation of anything as it could so easily be a screw up. All I’m saying is that PS3 version is well within the realms of possibility, albeit further down the line.

    I don’t see a PS3 listing there.
