Default Portal 2 PS3 Details

Quote:
Today Valve released news for the PS3 version of Portal 2 and its linking to Steam. This will be the first Playstation 3 game to incorporate the PC distribution and community service. Steam is a program that allows you to purchase games and connect with friends, clans, and other groups. The games you purchase through Steam are tied to your account but with that, your friends can see what you are playing, how much you played a certain game, or even talk to you in chat while your in game.

The PS3 version of Steam will allow all of this in Portal 2. This will also allow you to play cross platform with the PS3 as well. So you got the PC version of Portal 2 and your best friend got the PS3 version. SO WHAT? With Steam on PS3, you can still chat in game with each other or even play the co-op mode with each other. This is actually a really cool feature that they should have incorporated a long long time ago.

Kind of annoyed it's not on the 360 :P I had expected to be able to play with my non-PC-gaming friends (who all own 360s).

It's brilliant that it's not on the 360. That would lead to a load of kids who act like Steam is a new invention and there discovery that they can all be proud about.
Valve obviously realised Xbox is a kiddies console with no decent games coming out in the future... so they went with the sophisticated console

Hardly flame bait when it is a fact. If people can't cope with facts, that's just sad.

@Kman

That was flame bait and a totally unnecessary post. It doesn't even make sense...
