Windows 7 pre-beta has been released to developers, and ZDnet have posted their impressions. Is it a major release or just a revamped Windows Vista? That’s the big question surrounding Windows 7, which made its public debut in a keynote address by Steven Sinofsky today at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles.

Valve released the Left 4 Dead introduction on Halloween. The over four-minute, entirely in-engine movie was created by the same internal Valve team that produced the acclaimed Team Fortress 2 "Meet the" videos. Not quite in time for Halloween, Left 4 Dead will hit Xbox 360 and PC on November 18. The demo will be released on November 11, or November 6 for pre-order customers.

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto 4 has been postponed. With all the exciting new games storming PCs and consoles lately—Fable 2, Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and Mirror's Edge, to name a few—a console port getting postponed isn't exactly the end of the world. Nonetheless, IGN reports that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV now won't make it to stores until December 2. As we reported in August, Rockstar originally planned to have the PC port out on November 18 in North America.
