Did you notice in Portal (one of the games in The Orange Box) when you are in areas beyond/behind the test areas that there are a bunch of white and orange devices that look a lot like the 360?


I can't remember if this is in the "live fire" level where you first encounter the killbots, or later on. But somewhere in Portal there is a part where you get to crawl into a "behind the scenes" area where someone/thing had lived. One of those 360 looking devices is on a crate, and it's top cover has been removed. There is a frying pan sitting on top - suggesting that the heat generated by the device/console was hot enough to cook on.


A small jab at overheating 360s? Or am I reading too much into this? I thought it was funny...

I think those are the computers that are scattered all over throughout the later levels. You could say they resemble a 360 vaguely though...

That's funny, and I know what area you're talking about, but didn't make the connection when I played through it. I definitely think you're onto something.


I've been meaning to play through the commentary, so maybe I'll do that tonight.

Is it the level where you have get the power balls down the long tunnels to raise the platforms? There is a section of wall that pops out and you can crawl behind it.

There's a few places where you can get behind the scenes. There's one there, and one on the first level with the robots/guns. I think there's another also, but can't remember where it's at.


I'm not sure which one the frying pan in question is in though.

I checked again tonight. It is in the 16th training room - the one where you first meet the "live fire" robots.
