So the Perpetual Testing Initiative wont be on 260 or ps3 after all?

but they said it would Q . Q Not everyone can have an expensive gaming computer, Mine can barely run t2 :u. but as i was saying, what could possible be the snag? Maybe the developers to make it work for consoles got promoted to work on episode 3, and thats why nothing got done.

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the free Portal 2 DLC titled "Perpetual Testing Initiative" will be available for the PC and Mac on May 8th.
No mention of 360 and/or PS3, but they just might release it in the future.

Please stop all those myths about expensive pc gaming, they are completely false.

You can run Portal 2 with a 200 dollar PC, on high settings, which is 50 bucks cheaper than a 360 if I recall well the prices.

Of course there are super expensive computers, like everything else, but with those you could run like 20 Portal 2 games at the same time with everything maxed out and on huge screens.

And, I don't think Microsoft would allow free content, they LOVE to charge for everything, and with the PS3 version, well, every copy comes with a copy of Portal 2 for PC, so there should be no problem there.

You don't need an expensive gaming PC to run Portal 2. My specs, as lifted directly from xfire:

Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs) <- [Erroneous, there's only 1 core]
Memory: 2558MB RAM
Video Card: Radeon X1950 Pro

This machine happily runs Portal 2 in triple figure fps...except when fluid dynamics kick in. Even then, it sits at around 30, which is still eminently playable.

My TEN ing years old PC runs Portal 2 fine. Not at the highest, but not bad quality and still good frame-rate.

Incredible how nicely Source scales.
