Real men play FPS games with CameraMouse...

... well, either that or a steering wheel. =/

The audio in that Portal2 clip is something though.

definitely going PC, but excited to see how steam will integrate with Portal 2...

PC all the way. Sandy Bridge is amazing for gaming.


to see Portal 2 using Playstation Move and the sphere turning orange when shooting an orange portal, blue when shooting a blue portal and red when getting hit with vibrations alongside with the precise 3D control.
This looks more atmospheric! :p

I love Gabe and anything that Valve touches, but this must be said...does he only own Polo shirts...?

Cant wait for the sandy bridge cpus time to upgrade my E8400 its showing its age and i just got the 6870HD. So a new cpu and mobo is the next step. Also great new footage.

iamgoatman3858d ago

Same here, have a E8400 as well and although it's been a great CPU, it's now bottlenecking my GPU quite badly. Probably going to wait to see AMDs offering before upgrading. Also plan on Crossfiring my 5850, should be nice for everything coming out next year.

Gabe Newell is not the skinniest of people, so why did he decide to stand in front of the screen?

"Because its a secret!?"

Now seriously... we have to stop these jokes the man doesnt deserve it.

WhiteNoise3858d ago

Portal 2 is the most overhyped game this generation.

The first game was a basic puzzle game that was extremely short and had 12 year old humour that made me silently snigger for all of 0.002 seconds.

It was basically a free game with the orange box and was then released for free to everyone on PC and mac...yet console gamers will pay $59 for the sequel :S:S:S

If anyone wants to get it they should pay no more than $10 at a steam sale.

But when people are used to paying $29.99 for a $5 game on PSN...complacency is to be expected.

thebudgetgamer3858d ago

the only games on psn that are 29.99 are full games like infamous.

it was an ingenious puzzle game that was highly entertaining made by one of the best developers out there. The humour was fine, it entertained, not all humour needs sexual/adult references. We don't know how big portal 2 is going to be so we can't jump the gun on pricing. It should have more hype than what it's getting when compared to the hype kinect/cod/halo gets.

True that, I could never get through more than 10 min. of portal without becoming extremely bored....and it was free!!

Portal 2 will be bought by me for $5.79 in the summer maddness sale
