Update: A press release from Valve has revealed that the Playstation 3 version of Portal 2 will not actually feature any form of Playstation Move support. According to a statement from Doug Lombardi, Chet Faliszek’s comments were “lost in translation.”
To reiterate: Portal 2 does not support the Playstation Move. Original post follows.
As if you need any more evidence that the Playstation 3 version of Portal 2 was going to be far and away the best (especially since you get the PC version along with it) Valve has announced that the game will also feature “complete” support for the Playstation Move.
Valve’s Chet Faliszek took to the German Playstation Blog to reveal the news:
“We made a mistake back then and gave the Orange Box console versions to an external team. They did a good job, but didn’t quite achieve the same quality level that we have at Valve. Now everything happens in-house, we created a special console department just for that.”
“So the move to the PlayStation 3 comes late – we’re sorry for that. As a small compensation we have PS3-exclusive cloud saving, a free code for PC and complete PlayStation Move support.
“Look at it as a compensation for Left 4 Dead.”
Move support now joins a frankly ridiculous list of features that have been bundled into the Playstation 3 version. Features include cross-platform play between Playstation 3 and PC users, cloud based saving of saved games, day and date updates with the PC, and, last but not least, a fully functioning PC version with every purchase of the Playstation 3′s.
