That’s right folks, if you own a Playstation 3, might as well just get a copy of that, even if you have no plans on playing the PS3 version. Why? Because if you do, you’ll get a free download off Steam to play Portal 2 on the PC. Then you can give your weak PS3 copy to a friend so they can widdle through the game like an ape while you enjoy the promise of long awaited bliss as it was meant, with a mouse and keyboard. Or, if you’re feeling really wild, you can pick up a set of Razer Hydra’s for some special Portal 2 features not available anywhere else.
This is pretty much the best thing to happen for the PS3…ever. Not only are we actually getting cross-platform play, albeit PS3 to PC, but a free Steam copy with a regular $60 purchase for the PS3? I swear, I thought Valve couldn’t make me love them any more. I was horribly, horribly wrong.
Portal 2 will release this April.
