Valve's first big announcement of E3 2010 is out and it's great news for PlayStation fans - Portal 2 will be winging its way to the PlayStation 3. Not only that, but it will be the only console to have integrated Steamworks support:
On the PlayStation 3 Portal 2 will be supported by Steamworks, a complete suite of game features and services including auto updates, community features, downloadable content, and more. Previously deployed on the PC and the Mac, Valve's Steamworks development platform will make it possible to deliver the higher level of service gamers have come to expect.
The full press release has a little more information.

A teaser trailer is now out, setting the scene and showing a glimpse of the gameplay. Download or stream, or watch below.

Really? I bet he just can't wait to get back to the dumptruck full of money (or was it cheeseburgers) that Sony parked outside his house.

Haha, that teaser is awesome. Don't really care that its on ps3, this is one game I'm absolutely getting on PC, but the teaser is awesome. I mean, I don't mind playing games on console, and even at times I play fps on consoles (like Halo), but some of the puzzles in Portal 1 required so much precision and split second timing, I can't imagine even attempting it on a console, would be mega frustrating.

would you use the same account as pc? Imagine if all compatible games bought for pc were transferable over to the ps3

"The Best Version, on any console"


Hah, does he do the ever slightest little smirk at the end of the phrase as if to say in his head, "But the PC Version will be better!"
