Left 4 Dead 2Doug Lombardi’s announced the envitable: there will be a demo for Left 4 Dead 2 shortly before released.

Valve’s PR head said to Joystiq there will be a demo coming, via pre-orders, in selected retailers for the Xbox 360 version with the demo for the PC version coming for pre-orders on Steam. However, if you dont pre-order, not to panic. The demo will be out for all prior to release.

We’ve asked EA to see when L4D2 is coming to the UK. So far, nothing yet.

But it is due on November 17th in the US for 360, so we’re gonna assume it’s November 20th in the UK.

pes-2010Fed up of Konami ID’s? Well, be fed up no more, the ID’s are gone, starting with the release of Pro Evolution Soccer 2010.

Konami state that it is too late to do anything in past games released, biggest example would be Metal Gear Online. However, speaking to French gaming site , Konami say that they will get rid of the system with this year’s annual PES release for PS3 and 360.

Although, as far as we know, the 360 doesnt really use ID’s for Konami games, just Xbox Live where as the PS3 does, but we’ve only seen it in MGO. But anyways, its gone, and now, there will be only PSN’s and XBL GT’s to use for Metal Gear Solid: Rising’s online (if there is online for Rising)
