Watch the Portal 2 Trailer and Real Gameplay

She's back.

Gabe Newell shared Sony's stage at the PlayStation press conference yesterday that Portal 2 will be Valve's first in-house PlayStation 3 project and that it'll have the "best version of Portal 2 for console," basically already ruling the Xbox 360 version as sub-par.

The reason for this is that the openness of the PlayStation 3 has allowed Valve to integrate Portal 2 for PS3 with Steamworks, which means "auto updates, community features, downloadable content, and more."

Regardless of which platform you'll be playing it on, Portal 2 should be great. Check the new trailer and gameplay demo (from IGN) below.

    Looks a lot better than Portal ever did! Funnier than Portal too. To say I'm excited would be an understatement.

    Can't wait!!!

    Animation looks on par with a Dreamworks movie. Lighting looks INSANE.

    Cant wait to play this. Preferably on PC. But I have to say, it looks like Valve finally leveled up their PS3 skill. :p

    Holy crap! Portal 2 looks even more amazing than I would have thought! Valve never disappoints (excluding EP3).

    So... was this the big announcement?

    I would assume this is their big announcement, And actually they haven't made anything for ps3. "Valve's first in-house PlayStation 3 project"

    Im kinda pissed actually. How much you want to bet that this is the reason Portal 2 got pushed back. So they could make a ps3 version. I dont want to wait for the pc version, just so they could make a craptastic ps3 version.
