Alot of people have been claiming that the PS3 version of Portal 2 will be better on Sony’s console. Well thank god for Chet Faliszek stepping up and setting the record straight on this subject. Faliszek one of the developers over at Valve clarified that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Portal 2 “will be identical”. Sure there might be feature here or there that is different and the incorporation of Steamworks with the PS3 is a bonus, but it won’t change the gameplay on any console.
“If you bought the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions and put them side by side you can see they’re identical games. The actual content is the same too across all platforms.” With the PS3 we can update more often, we don’t have to have someone else gate that ability. We can play between the PC and PS3 players because we can update more frequently. “That’s our thing, we don’t want to hurt [either PS3 and PC users playing cross-platform] and now that we can update more frequently it’s easier for us to avoid that.”
Rest assured Xbox 360 fans you will be getting a great version of Portal 2 as well.
