In what turned out to be one of the biggest megatons of E3 so far, Gabe Newell announced that Portal 2 is coming to PlayStation 3 and will be enhanced by SteamWorks, making it the "best version of the game available on consoles." Get this — Gabe Newell, on stage, at a PlayStation press conference. Massive.
When the PlayStation 3 was introduced, I was the one of the platforms biggest critics, Newell revealed. 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.
SteamWorks will allow the game to auto-update, and will bring community features into the title.
Portal 2's due in 2011, and will launch day-and-date on the PlayStation 3.
