Doug Lombardi: No demo of Left 4 Dead before release

Left 4 Dead - Image 1Can’t wait to get your hands on Valve Corporation‘s Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360, PC)? Well, you’re going to have to wait till the full version of the game is out because a demo won’t be released before that time. To find out more, be sure to check out the full article.

Left 4 Dead - Image 1Valve’s vice president of marketing Doug Lombardi revealed that there will be no demo for the upcoming survival-horror video game Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360, PC) before the game is released.

While this may be a bit of a bummer to gamers who were looking to get their hands on this zombie-riffic multiplayer game, Lombardi explained that they’re focusing on just getting the game out on the launch date and don’t want to compromise the schedule to release a demo. He explained this further:

It is something you have to schedule and it is another release, so you have to make the choice there between completing the game by a certain date and getting it out to folks who want the full game or trying to create more demand by doing a demo.

We’re not really sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. On one hand, the game making its deadline would be really awesome. However, a demo would allow gamers to see what they are going to spend their hard earned money on. What do you guys think?
