Maybe they could try releasing a good game from the get-go next time, eh?

It's never too little too late with a new IP for the simple reason you have lost anything, a year ago no one knew the game, today no one remember the game.

I do suggest that they should have added a multiplayer mode, and look I honestly don't believe all games should have a multiplayer. Because most don't, but when doing a downloadable game it can be a big game changer when it comes to reviewers. I'd like to see how water could change the multiplayer situation. ALSO imagine a portal based multiplayer game with your character dual wielding the portal gun AND a AK-47 for example, imagine the speed of that game, I'd love it. it's be such a anti-camping game, if you could should a portal under a guy and then the other portal outside of the map boundries causing insta death or one portal under someone and the other on a wall, disorientating the guy.

Nice to see that the development team listens to the community...

I smell a PS3 port coming soon. They changed the name, they revamped some engine stuff and ironed out some bugs. Big enough to rebrand the IP and get away from exclusivity. And putting it on the PSN would allow for and extra 44 million users to have the chance to buy it. That's nearly 90 million possible sales.

Yes, this game will be on the PSN before the end of the year.

I am getting it. Anyone else doing the same? Only 800MS Points, Pretty good deal. Better than buying Limbo for 1200ms points..
