Portal 2: Cross Platform Support for PS3 & PC

Well look what we have here. It looks like Vaulve has forgotten about their past predjudices about the PlayStation 3 platform and gone full-steam-ahead into making “Portal 2 on the PS3, the best experience out of all the platforms.” Perhaps integrating Steam features as well as Cross Platform support with PC, will definably fulfill that statement.

“Head to head or co-op cross pollination” say developers

Though Steamworks isn’t being allowed anywhere near the 360, for the time being, PC and PS3 owners will at least get to play together – or fight with each other in Portal 2.

Valve has been trying to finalise netcode to enable steamworks to effectively cross pollinate online game play between console and PC. This is no new idea, but if all goes well it will be one of the first games to use the feauture. It looks like it may join the ranks of DC Universe Online, The Agency, and Free Realms, inĀ  Cross Platform gaming.

Thoughts?

    Although Portal isn’t my first choice for gaming, including cross-platform support for P2 is a great idea! This is definitely a first step into cross-platform gaming for the PS3.
