@XG247: We look at all the information about the possible Portal 2 early launch and put it in one handy post!
I'm thinking if it is released early, it's probably just going to be the PC version.
Most likely just the steam version. Retail versions would be too hard to pull off as the games would have to be posted by now to get here by Friday.
Aye that's what I meant. Non-physical copies only I'd assume.
Actually they are already shipped out and on the way to retailers. My store gets the shipments a 1-3 weeks early
works for me :)... already pre-loaded it on steam..
It is released on a bad week for me. Next week the game is getting released on a Thursday in Europe due to Good Friday. No post will be sorted during that time. Monday is also a bank holiday so it will be the that friday before I get this game.
Didnt know it was out thursday, being in UK that is going to make this game hard to get, its thursday or not at all that week really
this is impossible, we are talking about Valve here guys.
Not really. If you pre-order on steam it is now available to download and all they have to do is flip a switch and it is playable.
ok, it was a little joke, Valve love to take their sweet time in releasing games.
I suppose it's only fair. I mean Valve has more fans on PC than they do on one single console. Sucks that i'd still have to wait until my 360 and then my PS3 version (to play steam version with) but I can wait...... ..... NO I CANT WAIT :'(
I'm in the same boat bud. I'm picking up both console versions but likewise I'd be waiting until Tuesday to pick them up. :( can't wait though!!!!
my fine co-op partner informed me that the Steam versions are being released on the 18th worldwide, while the retail copies will ve on the 19th and 21st.
Yes I read that on Steam forums also.
Well, each one of the games from the potato sack seem to be getting portal tie-in updates. My guess is, get through all of those new tie-ins, and you get portal2 unlocked early as a reward. Yay?
That's a nice thought, it does seem that the Potato games and Portal 2 are linked in more ways than one.
Releasing the game early for only one platform would put everyone else at extreme risk of spoilers, which Valve certainly does not want.
The offer also did not state the intended release date of 19 April 2011. It only stated "offer ends when Portal 2 releases", which means it might be released early (:
