  • “When the PlayStation 3 was introduced, I was the one of the platform’s biggest critics,” said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. “However, Sony Computer Entertainment 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.”

    Portal 2 is the sequel to the title named “Game of the Year” 2007 by over 30 publications around the world. Portal 2 promises to break new ground in next generation gaming by expanding the award-winning recipe of innovative gameplay, immersive story, and creative inclusion of music while also introducing multiplayer co-op game modes.

    On the PlayStation 3 Portal 2 will be supported by Steamworks, a complete suite of game features and services including auto updates, community features (Steam Achievements?), downloadable content, and more. Previously deployed on the PC and the Mac, Valve’s Steamworks development platform will make it possible to deliver the higher level of service gamers have come to expect.

    “Valve is one of the industry’s leading studios and Portal is one of the most innovative properties launched in the past 10 years,” said Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America. “Valve’s decision to bring Portal 2 to the PlayStation 3 with Steamworks support is incredible validation of the power and openness and momentum of PlayStation 3.”

    Portal 2 is targeted for launch in 2011 on the PlayStation 3, PC, Mac and Xbox 360 platforms.

    Here is the announcement from Gabe Newell and a trailer of the game from the Sony E3 2010 Press Conference.
