Valve's Portal 2

If you didn't know, Portal 2 should be coming out in April of 2011. So with this, EA and Valve have announced a retail distribution agreement for Portal 2. Valve generally only sells games through Steam, which their online store/method of distribution. To get things on retail shelves in the past, Valve has used EA as their physical distributor, while keeping digital distribution through Steam. If you haven't played the original Portal, you're really missing out. Right now Steam has it for half off (regularly $14.99, now $7.49). Really, check it out if you haven't. It's well worth under $10, even if it is a short game. Portal 2 will be out for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac (natively on Mac, too!).
