"Deploying surprise in 3... 2... 1..."
The much anticipated surprise for Portal 2 has been revealed, folks. On stage in front of a jam-packed mega theater, Gabe Newell announced today at the E3 2010 Sony press briefing that Portal 2 will be on the Playstaion 3. Portal 2 will then be on the PC, MAC, PS3, and X360, and the game will be released simultaneously on all four platforms some-Valve-time in 2011. And because the Playstation 3 version will support Steamworks, it will "make it the best console version of the game." Take that, Xbox! Here's what Gabe had to say:
Steamworks will give gamers the access to a suite of services such as Steam Cloud, auto-updating, DLC, and Steam community features. Previously deployed on the PC and the Mac, Valve's Steamworks development platform will deliver content to PS3 owners by utilizing services that gamers have come to expect. Wooo!
