“We made a promise to gamers at E3 that Portal 2 for PS3 would be the best console version of the product,” said Valve president and co-founder Gabe Newell.
“Working with Sony we have identified a set of features we believe are very compelling to gamers. We hope to expand upon the foundation being laid in Portal 2 with more Steam features and functionality in DLC and future content releases.”
Portal 2 project lead Josh Weier added: “PS3 gamers will be able to simply drop the Blu-ray disc into the PS3 and link to their Steam account from inside the game. All their Steam friends on PC and Mac will be visible and accessible for chat and game invites.”
