You would have to be a complete idiot to think that Valve would launch a game early, not when they've invested tons of money into advertising the fact that their game will be available on a certain day.

On top of that, when was the last time a game launched on Friday?

Jesus, I question the intelligence of the person who even thought this was worth posting. Show a little common sense for a change.

Haven't they been in charge of their own advertising this time around? Also, Valve is always known for their surprises and such so I wouldn't completely rule it out.

I could see it happening on Steam but not on consoles but I won't complain if true. I'm getting the PS3 version because it comes with the PC version too. I'm just wondering if I play on PS3 and later on PC if my save will carry over. BTW, if anyone hasn't checked out the IGN co-op play through they should. Game looks fantastic.

This would great :)

Anyway a little off topic here but I can never find a straight answer but In the co-op mode with Portal 2 is there an AI bot...you know how you could play L4D with the AI controling the other team mates. ?

I just find it abit stupid if you can't because I'm not the type of person to go do a game like this with strangers I usualy do it with friends but their getting the 360 version.

I mean there has to be some way, I'd only be able to play half the game if it was just human controled.

From what I understand about Portal 2, the single player and co op stories are completely separate. So I believe in the single player you will be playing solo without a second character because you will have the flying robot (not sure his name) helping you out. Whereas in the coop you will have a second character being necessary to help you out that will always be played by a player.

The little personality core that helps you is named Wheatley, and he doesn't fly.

The main character in the story of both Portal 1 and 2 is Chell.

Ah, the gameplay videos of Portal 2 threw me off with Wheatley because he is always seen in the air, didn't noticed that he was always attached to something.

that would be the pc version only.
