Portal trailer

Portal trailer

Valve just released this first trailer of Portal, their very experimental first person puzzle game announced with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Half Life 2/Team Fortress 2. Clearly Prey gave the Valve developers some very nice ideas about how use this cool technology.

Commented on 2006-07-18 20:43:23
I don't think the game will actually look like that though, I'ts too good to be true...

Looks kinda boring to me, but as long as it comes with HL2 im fine with it.

Great, a new genre has arrived: FPP (first person puzzling)
Possibilities seem to be endless, I hope there will be a regular flow of new puzzling content. (for free, I hope)
O man, I love it already!

Heh heh thats some weird stuff. This could become something truly amazing.
Is it confirmed 100% to come with the console versions or only PC ?

Prey has some real good puzzles as well, give that a shot some time.

I'm not totally sure, but since it was announced at the same time as the 360/PS3 versions of HL2 E2 I assume it will also be included with them. I could be wrong of course.

I stand corrected? Maybe?

Wow! That was so impressive. I was at first thinking it would be a cheesy biting off the Prey game just to add more to the game, but they really have something here.

I'm sure those aren't actual in game graphics, they may be toned down a little. But by just seeing the release date we can figure out whether it is or not.

I'm really into this game now, so much that can be done.

Think, if on Xbox Live or PS3Live(whatever) people can make their own challenges and post them up. Wow!

Or you have contest against 3 other people, who can finish their challenge first, or better yet work together to complete one.

This game has so much potential.

Looks great to me. The lighting, textures, animation, motion blur, puzzles. At first it looked like a straight up Prey rip off, but it's got me interested. Is this a separate game, or is it bundled with HL2? I'm confused.
Commented on 2006-07-18 20:55:44
I just looked it up and it seems they are shipping it with HL2 :E2 for the pc, so hopefully it will come with the 360 version as well.
Commented on 2006-07-18 20:59:14
Sounds great! I just hope this bundle doesn't cost as much as the PS3 :-/. They're probably offering so much because HL2 is an ooolllddd game. But I couldn't care less. It's a classic imo.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Valve HL2 game coming to Xbox 360 has Half Life 2, Episode 1 & 2, Team Fortress, and in speculation, Portal? Just making sure.

Looks immense.

Pretty amazing physics.

I'm a little scared of some of the puzzles though, that player must know the levels well, because it looks pretty damn confusing on some bits.

What are you talking about? There is not much to the graphics, there are no huge well detailed buildings, no NPCs, not alot of enemys, its just a simple physics game, besides, Table Tennis looks just as good if not better.
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:04:55
OMG! Amazing! This is a defo buy just for this game! :D Cant wait!!
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:25:48
that looks like it's a LOT of fun to play. also great to see a next-gen puzzler really taking advantage of the hardware
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:29:30
Amazing!!! I was only hopping for HL2 on PS3 or Xbox360 because I didn't played on the PC, this pack is a gift from heaven ;-)

Gamespot says:
"This package deal contains Half Life 2, and HL2: Episodes 1 & 2, as well as their extras such as Team Fortress 2 and Portal."

The package Gamespot is talking about is for the PS3 and Xbox360 versions.

i love it! i hope they throw in some kind of multiplayer where u have to make ppl fall to their deaths.. :)
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:46:49
I'd like to see some multiplayer co-op puzzles with this. Where you can only solve them by working together.

Create your own puzzles would be nice also, provided like Chu Chu Rocket they cannot be uploaded unless they were possible to complete

Garr Valve pee me off, they have been great developers but with the launch of steam they seem to be taking money whereever they can.

using TF2 as an incentive to buy Epi2.

And the whole selling mods is just outrageous.

Oh well, this thing looks cool, can anyone say Prey?
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:52:11
wow, this looks like lots of fun. AND we finaly can say, that fps arent bad/ 4 adults. ;)
Commented on 2006-07-18 21:58:57
Blim, that statement is false. The idea for this was NOT taken from prey. Valve already had this planned. There was a small indie company that did narbacular drop that involved this concept before prey. Valve bought that company a while ago, and apparently it was for this game.
