CVG: Valve has confirmed that Portal 2 will be released on 9 February 2011
Can't wait. Even tho I'm going to be broke for 5 more months than I originally budgeted, it's a worthy sacrifice. I just love gaming :)
Shenanigans with Valve. If it was wasn't for Portal being so great i'd be bashing them right now. Lets see if Portal 2 can live up with that outdated source engine.
I need more money now. lol
Wow. Seems like late winter instead of Christmas is going to be when all the good stuff comes out.
too many games in February and march of next year.... this is crazyness!!!!
Dead Space 2 late Jan. This early Feb. Deus Ex late Feb. Crysis 2 late March. Brink spring 2011 The list goes on...
Killzone 3 February 2011, too!
Killzone 3 in Feb Socom 4 in March Ghost Recon in March Crysis 2 in Feb Portal 2 in Feb Brink is looking good and so is Deus Ex. I'm not sure how I'm going to go about buying these games. I like spending alot of time on a game before getting into another.
It will be overshadowed by Killzone 3. I guess I'll pick up Portal 2 after a price drop.
You're joking right? You think Killzone 3 is going to overshadow Portal 2? ROFLMFAO Sorry man, but get a grip, Portal 2 is going to be huge, having a fanbase on 3 platforms and being a game by the immortal developers Valve. On another note, pretty damn cool Stephen Merchant is going to be doing some of the voice work, I really liked him in the Ricky Gervais Show.
Karl Pilkington has a head like a f*cking orange. On topic, Feb 09th! Not too far past my birthday. :)
but it will be okay...killzone and portal are kinda different and most gamers dont choose one or the other they get both or get one later also i dont like portal so i dont care... overrated and boring
Lmao... even if it did overshadow it (which it won't), the PC Valve fanbase is massive to the point where it wouldn't matter if nobody bought it on PS3 or 360.
I think DNAgent has a point. On the PS3 I think that Killzone 3 will cast a bit of a shadow on Portal 2. The other platforms however will not have that problem. It also depends on how bad people want STEAM on their PS3s. It is BETTER than xboxlive in terms of matchmaking, server browsing, and in-game/chat features. This could be a BIG deal that changes the landscape of the PS3 permanently. And for the better! @STONEY4 - too true man! At any given moment there are more people logged into STEAM than there are people online for BOTH consoles combined. If you don't believe me just visit steampowered.com and look at the community activity on the middle right side of the screen.
Another title I must get for my PC! Less love towards my consoles this year. Portal 1 was amazing! 2 can only be better
Wow Portal 2 and Killzone 3 in the same month huh? Q1 is the new Q4 all of a sudden. I need like a grand to get through the gaming year. And lets not do that please, Killzone 3 and Portal 2, same month. Gaming takeover (again) that's what matters. Really, come on.
WOOOO PORTAL 2 :D :D
I hate all valve games, not one of there games every had me like omg. All there games are TRASH and there's way to many better games then l4d and portal last time I checked. I don't know if it's just me but All there games feel like arcade games. L4d to me it's a game that should of been 15$ on psn and Live.
Q1, the new Q4.
So I haven't read much about Portal 2 but I liked the first one that was included with the Orange Box. As a packaged-in game, it was a great short diversion. How will they make it into a standalone game worth $60? Can people in the know enlighten me (save me some searching\reading time)? Will it be much longer, have more story, new elements added? Thanks in advance.
"How will they make it into a standalone game worth $60?" Just like rest of the stuff sold on hardware marketed as next gen. The superior PC version will be much cheaper thats a given. 8800gtx
the first portal alone was worth the price, on PC of course and I'm not referring to graphics, at the time I had a weak macbook which ran portal on bootcamp... portal was all about user-created maps, watching the ingenious maps designs of other modders was amazing. anyway, portal 2 seems to be far better than the previous one - and that's saying a lot just look at some videos on youtube :)
What a perfect 21st birthday, that will by. Go get a drink and play Portal 2 that night. Ahh, Feb 09, I love you every year, but this year more than others!!!
How did I get a disagree?
Portal is the game that sucked me in like Bioshock. I know it's not the same genre but the 'unknown' feeling is awwesome. Valve did a amazing job with Portal 1 and can't wait to play Portal 2, after seeing those demo video's: It has to be brilliant.
my birthday is the 19th so this is a great present!
