    Or maybe they just wanted a cool looking cover that advertises the major aspects of a new game.

    ... or is this what is meant by the latest BBS images that mention "cooperative" testing, that Portal 2 is in fact multiplayer despite Kim Swift's comments to the contrary? Are we going to work with a friendly android Cave Johnson in early levels, only to have him become an enemy as did GlaDOS in P1?

    For most of the first half of Portal 1, you are not in control the secondary portal.

    No. Absolutely not. That is one portal system. Look at the god damn vine.

    WHA-! Just for portal 2 alone?

    I do find the cover art amusing though, having one portal at the back and at the front of the cover

    I still hope there is a single-player option without a partner as well. I don't want it to be like L4D campaigns...

    But yeah... ***k YES!!!!

    It says that there are single and co-op modes so I'm sure you wont have to play co-op, although it might be a seperate campaign.

    Can someone post what the Gamestop page says/said because when I look at the page there's no mention of game modes?

    I don't see how co op is confirmed. If they mean the plural of 'player' into 'players', I read that as meaning 'everyone who plays Portal 2' rather than 'the two players of Portal 2'.

    That's what I see as well so I guess they must have realized they dropped the ball and removed some info.

    Well. Silly Gamestop.

    And yeah, I hope it's not forced co op with AI or otherwise. I tend to play puzzle games alone.

    Hmmm $50 so this is a stand alone product yes and will be longer obviously? I gotta admit part of me expected an orange box 2.

    K as much as I love this news, really what DID happen to Ep3?

    Well, it seems I stand corrected. This is great news, though. Portal was fun and had a lot of unique challenges that no other game has had, so I'm excited to see what they're going to include in this next one.
