PS3 to get Valve after all

Newell confirms Portal 2 coming to PS3

In news that is sure to rock the Xbox and PC community, developer Valve has announced that Steamworks-enabled Portal 2 will be coming to the PlayStation 3. This means that no longer will the developer be developing for just the Microsoft Xbox 360 and PC platforms.

The bigger news shocker might be that Game Newell confirmed at Sony’s E3 press conference that Portal 2 will be available on the PlayStation 3 the same day that it arrives for the Xbox 360 and PC. The PlayStation 3 version will be Steamworks-enabled to allow cross-platform gaming and messaging between Steamworks-enabled platforms.

The news from Newell came with the promise that the PlayStation 3 version of Portal 2 will be the best version on any console due in part to the Steamworks integration. Our sources tell us that the decision by Sony to get Valve onboard was helped by a large check, but we can’t yet confirm that this is true. We guess Valve wanted to shock the world, and they have done a pretty good job with this news. No release date was offered, beyond saying that it would arrive in 2011; and there is no word yet on what titles might be coming to the PS3 as part of this move.
