Portal 2 Move Support Confirmed

Keeping their promise that Portal 2 on the PS3 will be the best console version available, Valve has confirmed that the PS3 edition will be fully PlayStation Move compatible. The developer has already confirmed cloud-based game saving, cross-PC gaming support, while the PlayStation 3 version even comes with a free – yes, you read that right, free – Steam code for the PC version of the game.

Valve’s Chet Faliszek explains the love:

We made a mistake back then and gave the Orange Box console versions to an external team. They did a good job, but didn’t quite achieve the same quality level that we have at Valve. Now everything happens in-house, we created a special console department just for that.

So the move to the PlayStation 3 comes late – we’re sorry for that. As a small compensation we have PS3-exclusive cloud saving, a free code for PC and complete PlayStation Move support.

Look at it as a compensation for Left 4 Dead.

  1. Never played Portal, but I’ve heard very good things about it! So, I’m looking forward to this, and with Move support too. Bloody lovely!

  2. Had been hoping for Move support, nice one Valve

  3. Cool. I’ll bring out the move once more.

  4. I cant wait for this portal was brilliant loved every second of it move support is what I was hoping for :)

  5. Awesome, thoroughly enjoyed the first game, it’s simply a masterpiece. Looking forward to this more than anything else on the cards this year.
    Incidentally, I recieved my very own (papercraft) Weighted Companion Cube on valentines day, which was sweet.

  6. Might just have to get Move for this (and KZ3)!

    @nofi – it will be amazing!!!! :-p

  7. Awesome. Move would suite this game perfectly.

  8. Fantastic news. This could be great with the Move and I’ll get a copy for my PC as well! Remembering some of the crazy spinning moves I had to do with my mouse and keyboard this could well be very intense with the Move.

  10. Move support? Excellent! I don’t even care that it will come late. Looks like when old Gabe said the PS3 version would be the best he wan’t kidding. So nice to see such a turn around in Valve’s attitude!

    • Maybe that change in Valve’s attitude was because of a certain VP of Sharpening Things…
