Valve may not ever release sales figures for any games that sell on Steam, but that doesn't mean the company doesn't like to boast about sales from other sources - especially when games sell as well as Valve's Left 4 Dead.

Speaking at the Game Developers Conference in America today, Valve revealed that the four player co-op zombie shooter Left 4 Dead had sold more than 2.5 million retail alone.

In other words, that's not counting the sales that come from Valve's own Steam platform, so the real sales figures are going to be much, much higher than that. Like really big; just remember how much Steam sales can jump when a discount hits and then bear in mind the recent Left 4 Dead sale.

The figures do cover both PC and Xbox 360 releases, according to ShackNews, but the developer hasn't broken down how the sales divide between platforms.

Sales for the zombie-slayer are set to jump again next month when the Left 4 Dead survival addon gets freely released.

If you've not played Left 4 Dead yet then rest assured that you're missing out on one of the best games of last year. Check our full Left 4 Dead review for more details, or skim your eyes over our guide on how to play Left 4 Dead properly.
