PS3’s Portal 2 Includes Cross-Platform Play

Looks like Gabe Newell wasn’t just kidding around when he mentioned Steamworks on PS3. It’s official, PS3 gamers will get the best version of the game. Not only will buying the PS3 copy net you the puzzler on Blu-ray, but included are also free copies for both PC and Mac. Access to cross-platform play will be a snap as well, as explained by Valve’s Josh Weier:

“PS3 gamers will be able to simply drop the Blu-Ray disc in the PS3, link to their Steam account from inside the game, and all their Steam friends will be visible and accessible for chat and game invites,”

Not too shabby Valve.
