Would they do that to us? She didn't sound the same.

I think she might have sounded a little bit more busted/high pitch but Valve loves working with Ellen, I'm sure she's still voicing Glados.

I haven't seen the demo, but I remember her voice being slightly different near the end than it was near the beginning of Portal 1... I need to see some gameplay.

Little known fact- That was actually the voice of Gabe Newell in the Portal 2 trailer. Seriously though I'm pretty certain that was still Ellen in the trailer they showed at E3 and I very much doubt Valve would try to pull any deliberate changes for their GLaDOS voice actress.

I heard Michael Ironside was actually voicing Glados in this game.

Yeah they changed the voice actress to the same one who did the announcer's voice on TF2.

Same voice actress, most probably.  She won't have the same tone as in the beginning of Portal 1, obviously, because of what happens in the end and how her voice changes there.

It sounds different, but it's probably due to differeny techniques used during recordoing. I think it's still the same, though, and even if it wasnt, it sounds very similar. So I'm happy.

It might be herself but she might sound like the voice on the last boss on Portal 1
