    Why is the hand mirrored in the image?

    Meaning on one case it's the left hand on the other one it's right hand...

    Why not get it thru steam?

    But, honestly I wouldn't get L4D now that L4D2 is coming out in the next few months.Unless you're not planning on buying L4D2, like me.

    I'm sure you can search "Google Images" and find something 'sicker' than the L4D cover. Not too mention it's free. :puke2:

    The original (pre-release) cover had the right hand on the front. Valve had a brain melt and didn't see the Left 4 Dead part of it, but someone apparently suggested it at a show/email so it got released with a left hand image (left hand, 4 fingers, it's dead).


    The problem you might have is that the key is the only really important bit. The DVD/box you get might be legit, but without a valid key it's just a pretty box. The box I have doesn't look like the PC one posted since that one is out of date. If you look around on sites that sell the game I'm sure the boxart would turn up.

    The key is on a slip of slightly shiny, thicker than 'normal' paper (but not too thick), which has the key (should be 5 sets of 5 letters/numbers) at the bottom of it. On the back it has the controls in a red box in the centre, with 2 contact/information websites above it.

    Image of the slip (off google images, the actual link was down):
    [​IMG]

    As for the DVD, the only noteworthy thing is that the bright parts of the hands (the fingers) should be slightly glittery/noisy at some angles. Nothing like a full on 'authentic' sticker would be, but it isn't completely matte.



    Buying off Steam (and waiting to see what happens with L4D2) would be the easiest and safest way though.

    I'm at work, not home. I don't have access to the legit DVD here bud. I thought you were looking for the contents etc. I supplied alternative looking DVD boxes as well.

    EDIT: I see, my middle picture is missing with the box contents. Oh well.

    thats the reason im buying it

    1. it will help me kill time till L4D2 comes

    2. valve WILL CRACK and either make L4D2 a cheap expansion of L4D or make it cheap for current L4D customers

    3. its fun as hell =P

    That's funny, but did you notice, that on German cover the hand has a thumb:D

    Guess that's all due to the censure they got going there:rolleyes:
