This could be a huge step ahead for PS3 and opens up a whole new realm for game developers.


Valve Reveals Portal 2 for PlayStation 3: Steam Details
Posted by Doug Lombardi // VP of Marketing, Valve

A few months back, Valve announced some initial details of Steamís debut in the PS3 version of Portal 2. While people were excited to hear about the PS3 gameís inclusion of Steam access to Portal 2 on any PC or Mac, they also had a bunch of questions.

So, hereís a bit more info about Steam on the PS3.


Portal 2 for PlayStation 3 is the first title to support Steam on a console. Specifically, that means it offers cross-platform matchmaking, gameplay, friends, chat, and achievements, all powered by Steam. Steam on the PS3 also saves co-op game progress and single player saved games to the Steam Cloud, enabling players to pick up where they left off on any PlayStation 3.

Steam makes its appearance on the PS3 as an overlay within Portal 2. Here, the Steam overlay provides access to Steam Friends, displaying their in-game or online status and providing a quick pathway to text chats, player profiles, friend requests, and game invites. Steam Achievements are earned in lockstep with PSN Trophies and are also accessible within the Steam overlay.

Steam on the PS3 provides access to all of these features once the player has linked their PlayStation Network account with a Steam account, which is done right within the game. A Steam user can login to an existing account, and anyone new to Steam can create an account with the click of a button.

With all these features, Portal 2 on the PS3 is the best console version of the game, just as it was suggested it would be back at E3 last year. If youíre still hungry for more details, head over to steampowered.com and learn more about Portal 2 for PS3.

Wow! The possibilities of gaming with friends on PC would be cool. Wonder if xbox will follow suit. I'd love to game on my PS3 for free while my friends on xbox would have to pay for the same privilege. Haha
