Is this from Gamestop? Anyway, it's already confirmed that it's a conspiracy.

PC games are always cheaper anyway, even if they are exclusives.

Way too much for an online-only game.

Odd, 54 bucks? Why not just 55? :S Or even 50 lol.

I hate prices in games that are not ending with a 0 or 5, lol.

god spoke to gabe newell in the form of a bacon and egg mcmuffin and it said 'yea gabe, the path to salvation lies in the pricing of left 4 dead.  go ye forth and sell this game for $53.99 u.s. dollars'

and gabe saw that this was good.

Jeez, I thought they'd go with 20 bucks like counter-strike source, dod: source, etc.

I mean, unless Valve has yet to announe its super-secret single player campaign yet, I feel like I'm getting ripped off.

Indeed. Wouldn't explain the 45 dollar price for PC though... well then it was probably MS's idea, you know they're slick like that.

Not really related to this topic, but why isn't this coming to PS3, is it because of the problems they had with the orange box?

They said no but it could happen later down the line, but its a big if really. This game look cool and I am going to buy it either way, but its most likely because of Vavle hating the PS3, lmao.

Which is SO sad IMO. One of the best PC developers out there and they are lazy to even try to take advantage of something so much more powerful. Imagine if they took the time with Sony to tap into he console, what a developer like Valve could achieve.

It looks like they discounted it 10%.  10% of $59.99 is roughly 6.00, 10% of $49.99 is roughly $5.00.  I'm not sure what's so odd about a 10% drop in price.
