While Valve has never released a Left 4 Dead game on any Sony gaming platform, that doesn't mean it'll never happen. It seems YouTube user digitalarts001 managed to do just that as he has the zombie FPS running on the PlayStation Vita!
What's even more impressive is the game seems to be running in a playable form — complete with motion controls to control the camera, too!
Give it a watch and salivate at how awesome to play this on the go and with friends.
Impressive, no? So, how did he do this little bit of videogame magic? As it turns out, he has written his own app using PlayStation Mobile. It then connects to a remote version of Windows and plays L4D via steam over on a local network.
If you didn't know, PlayStation Mobile (formerly called PlayStation Suite), is a program used to create PlayStation-certified content available on supporting platforms. You can click here if you want to know more about it.
Digitalarts001 doesn't stop with Left 4 Dead, in his Youtube page, you can see him using the PS Vita to run FInal Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid and even Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. 3 on it.
Will Sony put an end to things like this? They might possibly so because of the legal ramifications it could entail, but I don't doubt this would help drive up PS Vita sales…and I'm sure Sony won't mind a little help in that area.
Where do you want to see this little project headed? Should Sony support it officailly so the PS Vita will automatically have a whole catalog of triple A games?
