    Heh people have gone berserk on the steam forums over this announcement.

    It does seem quite ridiculous considering the price that people initally paid for a game many considered to be "incomplete".

    To be fair it's easy to understand people's anger. Why pay £30-£40 for new game when you already have a good one that lacks the content you expected it would get.

    I don't understand it. If you don't think the current game is worth the money then you wouldn't be playing it surely? Likewise if you don't think the new game is worth £30 then you don't have to play that either.

    What I'm saying is I bought the game at full price in anticipation of extra content. Perhaps a little naive of me to expect a company to give me something for free, but I was hopeful. The reason I'm slightly annoyed that they're bringing out a new one so soon is the because this means that there will certainly be no DLC in the future, and I'll effectively have to cough up another £30-£40 if I want to continue playing the game.

    What bothers me is the Xbox360 exclusivity. Well, good job MS for securing it, but I still think this is a game that's well suited for PC. Was this game not a commercial hit on the PC end (even taking into account pirated copies)?

    exactly. i never bought LFD has i thought it wasnt worth £30. it was more of a hl2 mod then anything else imo.

    Valve seem to be very good at realising half finished games these days, and then saying that they will add to them and never do it.

    Valve just use their name to sell games. There was once a time when they would make top class polished titles now they just throw them out and hope for the best. One day it will come back to bite them on the ass.

    Its jointly done by EA, that says it all really?. Console gamers dont generally complain about dlc like pc gamers do so they can screw the pc market and release another source mod for a great price again. I enjoyed l4d but it was unfinished and way to short, so far im prefering killing floor as it has a bit of rpg to it but they all get boring.

    What was Portal then?

    As for L4D granted I picked it up for £20 not £40 but if you're into online shooters it's one of the few that gives COD4 a run for its money currently especially when you get a good team going.

    Has anyone seen the small clips of gameplay from E3?
    It is virtually identical to the original, except for the map and weapons.
