Buy Portal 2 once for PS3, play on PC and Mac for free

Valve gave the anti-PS3 brigade a lot of ammo back in Dec 2007 when they delivered the flakiest version of Orange Box on PS3. Portal was the highlight, but anyone with half a decent PC had a hard time justifying time spent on the PS3 version(s).

Well, times change and the PS3 version of Portal 2 looks set to make amends - a commitment from Valve boss Gabe Newell that it'll be the best version, along with keys to allow play on PC and Mac - all included in the price of the PS3 game.

Not only this, but the game is to feature “persistent cloud-based storage of PS3 saved games” as well as cross-platform chat on PS3, PC and Mac.

I see this a a really impressive technical hurdle to jump, fair play. Really looking forward to Portal 2 now, roll on April 22nd.
