The better graphics and pc connectivity that the PS3 version was tempting for sure.... but at the end of the day I had more friends I wanted to play with online with the 360.


And, with the PSN network down for over a week now... looks like I made the right decision.  I bet Valve might be a little pissed for deciding that "Playstation is the superior platform".  But I'm sure they also got paid big time for that as well.

This is just about the only thing you said that doesn't make you look like a complete idiot.

Hardware wise it is superior but I am sure they are a bit annoyed with the PSN business. If I had a PS3 I would have bought it on there but the 360 version is still Portal 2 and its awesome. All the PSN stuff was a bonus but not having it in no way reduces the experience on 360

Yeah the money exchanged in that deal wasn't cloud based.

Is there Move support in the PS3 version? That seems like something that could of been really cool, if the light on the wand changed colour depending on which portal you shot last or something.

Oh for sure, and I didn't mean it was related.  I just felt that Valve really loves to keep its customers connected constantly to the Steam experience, and this was their first experiment onto another medium besides pc/mac.  Idk, I would be frustrated with Sony if the network failed like this so soon after releasing my product.

it's never failed like this before and they've already said they would work to make it more secure, so I honestly doubt valve is going to be angry about this.

In all seriousness, that would have made the topic at least interesting.

Hmm, I'm currently trying to decide between the two versions right now. There is split screen right? Me and my gf are more comfortable playing on our 360s because we each have a  system and it''s our primary, but the PS3 has steam connectivity...hmm...

Yeah, there is split-screen. Honestly it seems like the only way to play co-op in my opinion.

I'm pretty pleased with my PS3 purchase. I still have it for Steam and I've been playing it with my friends this whole time, in the same room, because they don't live halfway across the country yet.

So we're still doing this? Throwing in underhanded jabs at PSN? After a week of countless threads, Youtube videos, and podcasts from people failing to be funny, I think we can say this topic has been run into the ground in record speed...

On a side note, can we puh-lease get back that post requirement before users are able to start their own threads again?

If you want to discuss which version of the game is better then that's fine, but I fail to see how valves comments about the Playstation 3 being "superior" factor into that discussion and this thread is consequently being locked as trolling.
