 - Portal 2, Valve, PC, PS3, Play together

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 have been beavering away trying to finalise netcode to enable steamworks to effectively cross pollinate online game play between console and PC. It's not a new idea, but it's never quite worked as smoothly as it could in past endeavours.

Exciting stuff. Wonder if the PS3 version will have mouse and keyboard support though...

Also at VG247. Should also point out that it's PC, PS3 and of course Mac owners too.

Be careful what you wish for!

You might be right in that there's no VS mode as such but I'd read somewhere else that there will be competitive elements to some of the challenges, where a quicker eye / trigger finger will still count.

Plus - let's face it, your friend is on a platform over some lava and you're armed with a portal gun...whatyagonnado :)
