So who's getting Portal 2? I hadn't planned on getting it, because I ordered the Socom 4 bundle the same week, but I couldn't pass up the $5 off and $20 credit from Amazon. So I'll have both waiting from me when I get home Tuesday.

I pre-ordered it for PS3 since it comes with a free PC/Mac copy. Figure if I ever get around to building a HTPC, I'll be able to play this on it.

The net $35 cost is what sold me too. I'm sure it's one of those games you'll be able to find cheap a few months after release.

I've been waiting for it since the first mention of a sequel. Pre-ordered months back. Amazon claims they will honor all pre-orders, with the $5 off and $20 future credit... we'll see.

The only bad thing: I didn't anticipate liking Crysis2 so much, Portal will be competing for my time!

I've got some stuff.

Yeah, PS3 version here. Also, there is some crazy Portal ARG with multiple game tie-ins going on right now on Steam. For example, The Ball just got a seven level pack of free Portal themed DLC.

wasn't going to get it... but for ~$35 it's hard to pass up.

Thanks for the heads up on the Amazon deal. I'll be ordering the PS3 version (for cross-platform play with PC).

Looks like it's getting rave reviews. IGN gave it a 9.5. Has a 95/100 so far on metacritic out of 13 pro reviews.

Take some dramamine and tough it out. It's worth it.

I checked the status this morning. Apparently, Amazon tacked on another $5 Credit. So with the discount and credits, this is effectively a $30 purchase for those that got this deal. Mine is will be delivered today, again no extra charge from Amazon Prime for same-day.

I'll play it while the wife watches Glee...

I've got some stuff.

I also got an extra $5 credit for pre-ordering.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

i have preordered under the $20 credit, but the MSRP was $54.99.... did you order when the game was $59.99? Is your total coming out to $34.99, or $30?

I didn't expect it... I got the lowest price for pre-ordering, which was $54.99, and I got the $20 credit email, plus a separate, additional email with a $5 credit "for pre-ordering Portal 2". Check your amazon emails to see if both emails are grouped together (Gmail does that).

I pre-ordered on Feb. 3rd, if that's any clue.

Pre-ordered my 360 copy as well.. Can't wait for this, the first one was incredible, and for me was the most impressive part of the Orange Box. It re-invented the First-Person shooter, because you didn't actually shoot anyone. To make a puzzle game from that perspective, with a gun that shoots a entry and exit portal was inspired, not to mention GLADOS was the funniest and scariest villain I have seen in a long time. I actually have the Still Alive song on my MP3 player and love it. I want my Cake...

Thank You
