So I figure the map edititor, SDK, is for PC only, and there will not be something similar for the console gamers.

Assuming this, will console gamers be able to dowload maps onto their console?

Or will I need to get Portal 2 for steam?

I think valve said that you can get the pc maps for the consoles, at least for the ps3.

PS3 users will most likely be able to download the maps for free. 360 users will most likely have to pay.

Pay for each map that is made or pay for valve made maps?

I thought Valve had said this would be the case, Some where along the way. I would prefer it was cross platform so at least PC and Mac. For Level Building.

Well if user made maps were going to be put on the 360, Valve would most likely select a few of the best ones and put them in a pack, and then have it as DLC to the 360 users. Microsoft doesn't like free content.

Probably yes, and good choice. I mean, look at L4D2. There are an ungodly amount of user made maps for the PC, that you can download any time you want. The 360 version however, is just now getting one of the maps, which they'll have to pay for.
