Let me establish something for those that haven't figured it out yet. Left 4 Dead is popular everywhere, not just in the US, it's just that in Europe the PC version is much more popular. If you count in the PC version, L4D sold just as much in Europe as it did in the US.

Well halo 3 sold more in Australia then it did in Japan I believe. Despite the fact that we've sold less hardware here.

So it would definetely be in Valves best interest to release laft 4 dead in Australia.

@ NicholasCage
I was being sarcastic. From what I've read a less violent release has been submitted.

Australia only has a userbase of 780K. But from what I can tell shooters seem to do pretty well in Australia. Which is probably why they care enough to release a censored version.

wow this is way undertracked valve said a few months ago that it had already reached the 2 million mark a few months ago. Also valve recently said last week that this game has since sold 2.5 million units. Its a definitely must if you have a 360 and have xbox live its just so much fun ive probably played this game over 100 hours on xbox live. It just never gets old.

@dbot, 1.34 million is actually pretty high for a new IP that's essentially multiplayer-only. For instance Chromehounds and Battlefield 2 didn't even sell half that amount.

This game will probably have long legs too if Valve supports it with new content like they claim, similar to Burnout Paradise.

Also take into account that being a Valve game, it probably has sold double that if they included how many people bought it on PC.
