    Portal 2

    Platforms: PS3, 360, PC, Mac

    Thought it might be fitting to have a discussion thread for this.

    So some videos have been released from E3, a trailer along with a few demo playthroughs. It's gonna be released in 2011 on PS3, 360, PC and Mac.

    Some other bits of info:
    • Will take place hundreds of years after Portal 1
    • Glados is back (so is Chell)
    • New NPC's called Personality Spheres that you can pick up and interact with.
    • A lot of new gameplay elements, including special paint that can make you run fast, or bounce really high. Also shown was a levitation beam. The paint mechanic was taken from a student-made game called TAG. Valve bought the rights and hired the devs (like they did with Narbacular Drop).
    • Possibly running on a new engine.

    Demo gameplay:

    Looks awesome, I have still yet to meet one person who hasn't enjoyed Portal after playing it. Second one looks like it'll be a much more fledged out experience, which will definitely be worth a purchase.

    The first portal was awesome, great game.
    Can't wait for this game. Really excited, should be fun.

    Only sad thing is we gotta wait til next year :(

    ITS ON PS3!!!!!!

    im very happy! not only is it on ps3, but it sounds like it is going to be getting pc style rolling updates via steamworks, AND is done by valve and not that shit sandwich known as EA.

    Huh, PS3 support. Didn't see that coming. Especially after Valve pretty much denounced the thing.

    EDIT: AND powered by Steam. Nice.

    I've never been less excited for a sequel to a game I adored. I just don't feel like this game is really needed. This feels like a cash in. I know valve doesn't do that, but still, that's what it feels like.

    Watched a few demo videos, I really am liking what I'm seeing.

    It's a shame it's still a year away.

    I'm going to gamescom in Germany just to see if I can hands-on this game... I want to play it even if just for 5min.

    I'm probably not going to watch any gameplay vids of this one.

    I think the reason we all enjoyed the first one so much was because it blindsided us. I certainly didn't get The Orange Box for Portal, but it was the highlight of the package hands down.

    Three definite videos that show a LOT more than the trailer.

    Warning for Abe, shows a lot of gameplay and gameplay mechanics.




    Cannot freaking wait for it now. Reckon it's a definite Day 1 purchase for me.

    I am truly amazed that Valve are bringing this to PS3, and I hope that this means that Valve will be bringing more of their games to PS3 in the future. L4D and TF2 Updates please?

    I'm not to sure. Steam support is definatley a step in the right direction, allowing Valve to bypass PSN altogether (hopefully the XBOX gets the same treatment).

    I don't know if the PS3 can expect free content updates, but updates should add value to the title.

    This game's a day-1 purchase for me as well.

    well, the game's been apparently leaked for 360/ps3, as for an early release, if their is one, i can only see it being for pc steam pre-orders, i doubt if it was to include retail, their would have been a leak somewhere with informing all the different retail chains

    Yeah I would say early release for Steam customers. The leaks are out there for consoles, but PS3 version won't run at this time, so they don't really have to worry about that for now at least.

    Play a game and unlock Portal 2 early. Strange idea but interesting.

    Are the numbers on the website not changing for anyone else?
