    Valve recently announced that Portal 2 will be hitting the Playstation 3 at the same time that it is released on the XBox360.  On the Playstation 3 Portal 2 will be supported by Steamworks, a complete suite of game features and services including auto updates, community features, downloadable content, and more.

    “When the Playstation 3 was introduced, I was one of the platform’s biggest critics,” said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve.  “However, Sony Computer Entertainment has proved that the Playstation 3 is the most open platform of all the current generation consoles and has worked extremely hard to make the platform the most desirable for consumers and developers.  As such, we are delighted to announce Portal 2 for the Playstation 3 and believe the Steamworks support included will make it the best console version of the game.”

    “Valve is one of the industry’s leading studios and Portal is one of the most innovative properties launched in the past 10 years,” said Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America.  “Valve’s decision to bring Portal 2 to the Playstation 3 with Steamworks support is incredible validation of the power and openness and momentum of Playstation 3.”

    Portal is currently slated to be released on the Playstation 3 and XBox360 in 2011.
