Citing a case of ‘lost in translation’ Valve have just issued a statement regarding the earlier news that the PS3 version of Portal 2 will support Move.
The original story came from an interview with Chet Faliszek on the German PlayStation blog and when the text was translated in to English someone, somewhere, got a bit confused. Valve have sent an email out which reads:
There’s a story making the rounds regarding Portal 2 support for PS3 Move.
Unfortunately this quote was “lost in translation” — Portal 2 does not include support for Sony’s motion controller.
A shame, especially when the PC version will have support for motion control. Eurogamer are claiming that no mistranslation occurred and I’ve just run the text through Google Translate and it reads:
But as a small remedial measures for it’s PS3 exclusive cloud storage stands, free code for PC and Playstation-Move full support.
A little later on Chet says Move is ‘completely new’ to Valve and not fully implemented yet.
