February 2011's Portal 2 is now April 2011's Portal 2, according to publisher Valve. The PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sequel will now be out the week of April 18.

Valve calls this "the shortest delay in Valve's proud tradition of delays" but tries to cheer us up with this: "t represents the approaching convergence of Valve Time and Real Time. Though this convergence spells doom for humanity, it will not affect the new Portal 2 release date."

So apparently a "bridging the gap" digital comic book is going be released starting tomorrow by Valve...if it's anything like the L4D comics leading up to the release of The Sacrifice DLC...it's gonna be awesome.

Just paid for the pre-order today! Although I'm thinking of waiting a few days until after release before I log back into Steam... wondering how slammed the servers will be on release day?

Nice comic.  Pre-ordered the PS3 version from Amazon.  Comes with a free PC copy, is $5 off and Amazon is giving a $20 gift card on top of that.

With any luck I can trade in the PS3 version somewhere.

Interview that explains more clearly how the Free PC/Mac copy with PS3 version works. 

http://www.gamerzines.com/ps3/previews/valve-portal-2-interview.html

excerpt:
Quote
GZ: And it also provides PS3 players with a copy of the PC/Mac version for free. How does that process work? Is there a Steam key included in the box to download the PC version, or is a copy gifted to you once you link your Steam account in the PS3 game?

JB: We're going to send out some more details on that, but when you buy the PS3 version there'll be a key code in the box , and when you first bring up Steamworks in the PS3 game, that allows you to link your Steam account with your PSN account. That's where you punch in the code, and once you've used that code it's spent. With that link, you automatically own the game for PC and you can download it on any PC or Mac that you have. If you don't have a Steam account you can instantly create one through a quick sign up, and then you can activate that later as a full Steam account on your PC.

GZ: Do you need the code to access co-op in the PS3 version, or can you simply play through PSN without touching Steam?

JB: You have to create a Steam account, which again can be via that quick create where all you're doing is clicking a button saying 'hey, I wanna play'. You don't need to input the code. You don't even need to have a full Steam account.

GZ: So someone buying a second hand copy of the PS3 version would still have access to the co-op even if the code has already been redeemed?

JB: Yes, they would.

GZ: Does that leave the system open to abuse? Let's say I want to pick up the PC version. Are there any measures stopping me from buying the PS3 version, linking the code to my Steam account, immediately selling back the PS3 game to a store and effectively getting a PC copy for next to nothing?

JB: No, I don't think there's anything that would prevent that. We're willing to take the risk that someone might jump through all those hoops to create what we think is a really compelling feature that people are going to like.

Wait, so can you use the Steam code without a PS3? Because I only have my Mac, so I was just going to order directly on Steam, but the Amazon gift card is making me consider buying the PS3 version for the Mac version. But if I can't access said Mac version without a PS3, that could be frustrating. :P

Hmm, it only talks about working with linked Steam/PSN accounts. Since I have no PSN account, I should probably just play it safe and buy directly from Steam...
