Video: Gabe Newell Reveals at E3 2010 Portal 2 is Coming to PS3
Gabe Newell announced something at E3 2010 even he didn't expect to ever say, and that is that "Portal 2" will be coming to the PS3.
He jokingly said that "Kevin Butler was introduced to him as the VP of sharpening things." He went on to say "When the PlayStation 3 was introduced, I was the one of the platform's biggest critics," said Newell.
"However, Sony has proved that the PlayStation 3 is the most open platform of all the current generation consoles and has worked extremely hard to make the platform the most desirable for consumers and developers.
"As such, we are delighted to announce Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 and believe the Steamworks support included will make it the best console version of the game." This means that Xbox has lost another exclusive that was once never thought to leave.
More PlayStation 3 News...
This was one of those moments in gaming you'll remember for a long time.
When I suddenly heard Glados, I was stunned.
Meh... makes no difference to me TBH, tried the first one and thought it was pants...
this is absolutely incredible news, but I don't know if you understand what he meant by steamworks support.
it means that it will update JUST LIKE the PC version. And unlike left 4 dead 1 & 2 for 360 you won't need to go to the store to get content packs, they will all be updated on your PS3 like normal steam games on your computer.
I'm betting my life we'll have left 4 dead on PS3 sometime soon too.
how do you mean exclusive? Portal 1 was also available in the Orangebox on de PS3...
This I do not understand at all. Didn't Gabe unwillingly state that the PS3 was a piece of crap to develop for in the past? Now he's bringing steam service and even the sequel to Portal to the PS3. tsk tsk tsk... Hypocrites..
