Portal – and its imaginatively titled sequel Portal 2 – remain two of the most critically acclaimed games from last generation. With the recent rumour regarding a LEGO Dimensions pack themed around the popular franchise, you'd be forgiven for wanting to revisit Aperture Laboratories.
But if you can't be bothered fishing out the old disc – or you have no interest in LEGO – you'll be glad to hear that Zen Pinball 2 will soon be receiving a Portal-themed table. Indeed, the DLC will land on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita on 26th May in North America and 27th May in Europe. Perhaps we'll finally be able to have our cake and eat it too.

This has the potential to be very cool.
I'm very excited for this table, I just bought the original star wars pinball tables, the star wars rebels table, the age of ultron table and the venom table and I'm liking them so far.
@get2sammyb ever considered reviewing the individual zen tables?
This is more fantastic news, as Zen Pinball is one of my favorite Vita games. It's one that I can always go back to in times of boredom.
Bring it on! New tables are always welcome!!
Really weird since Valve is so anti-console.
I like Zen Studios but with all the hate Valve showed the PS3 has me in the position of not wanting to have anything to do them. If it was not for Electronic Arts there would not be any Valve software on the PlayStation 3. Except for two Counter-Strike Global Offensive and Portal 2.
Doesn't anyone remember Portal 2 on the PS3? That game had the built-in function called Steamworks that allowed players to be able to get the game for free on PC in addition to being able to actually play with PC users! I may be a bit presumptuous but I think Valve did absolutely everything right with Portal 2 on PS3. Xbox didn't even get the whole steamworks deal.
Plus there's The Orange Box, which had Half Life 2 in it's entirety, the original Portal and Team Fortress 2 (Which actually is an inferior version, but still had enough content to make it worthwhile).
@Azikira The Orange Box was brought to the PlayStation 3 by Electronic Arts. Valve's founder Gabe Newell has explicitly stated in the past calling the PlayStation 3 a "a waste of everybody's time" and "The PS3 is a disaster on many levels... I'd say, even at this late date, they should just cancel it and do a do over. Just say, 'This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it ," Valve's Tom Leonard said "The PC and the 360 are just more straightforward. We can focus on what we want to do, which is make game experiences, instead of sweating bullets over obscure architectural decisions they make with their platform." simply put the system is too complex to work with.
Valve did give in later to develop and publish on the PS3 to bring Counter-Strike Global Offensive and Portal 2.
I didn't realize EA brought The Orange Box, but at the very least the games were released on PS3. Maybe Gabe just had a really bad time with Customer Service and decided PS3 wasn't worth his time- I have a similar feeling about Microsoft's Xbox. Pretty ironic now though, that PS4 is the king of New Gen consoles and Xbone is struggling to gain the same traction.
