Portal 2 to Feature Complete PlayStation Move Support

Update: As new details have come to light, read our updated post Apparently Portal 2 Does not Have Full Move Support.

Original post follows.

Upcoming first-person teleportation puzzler Portal 2 will receive complete PlayStation Move support, according to Eurogamer.

Valve's Chet Faliszek described the feature as an apology for the lack of Left 4 Dead on PlayStation 3, as well as the relatively lower quality of the company's Orange Box when translated to PlayStation 3.

We made a mistake back then and gave the Orange Box console versions to an external team. They did a good job, but didn't quite achieve the same quality level that we have at Valve. Now everything happens in-house, we created a special console department just for that. So the move to the PlayStation 3 comes late - we're sorry for that. As a small compensation we have PS3-exclusive cloud saving, a free code for PC and complete PlayStation Move support.

The PS3 version of Portal 2 will also support cross-platform play with PC owners, so it makes sense for console gamers to receive PlayStation Move support.

Ya, it looks like this isn't the case, but it still will have cross-platform ability and a free PC copy!

That will sell it for me for sure as I wasn't planning on buying the PS3 version as my buddies will all be playing it on PC. Now I can play it on either one

Awesome! Can't wait to play this with my friend who will be getting it on Steam.

I wouldn't dismiss this just yet! I think Valve will issue a official statement themselves really soon. If Move isn't implemented already, I think the current attention this has caused will become the eventuality of seeing Move in Portal 2.

I think Portal 2 will indeed see Move support!
