Portal 2 Early?

The core concept behind Portal involves bending the space/time continuum, but is Aperture Laboratories actually capable of reversing Valve Time? Possibly, as Kotaku points to clues from the Valve PotatoFoolsDay ARG suggesting Portal 2 may be released on Friday, rather than next week (thanks nin). On a semi-related note, Portal 2 pre-loads are now available through Steam. Also, on the topic of Valve Time, Brad Wardell tells IndustryGamers he thinks operating Steam is contributing to delays of Valve's internally developed games, saying: "you look at before Steam and after Steam, it's definitely had an effect." Of course Half-Life, the poster child for Valve Time, was released years before Steam was a gleam in Valve's eye, but he's entitled to his opinion. Finally, there's more on this ARG on the Dejobaan Website (where they offer this mash-up) and the Lazy 8 Website.

Wouldn't it be better for your friends to buy it on PC? That way, everyone can play the best version of the game.

Some of us don't have Windows PCs (or Macs), or rigs beefy enough to be suitable for gaming on... Unless Valve is also going to surprise anounce Linux steam and Portal 2, my only viable choice for playing is Xbox360... (Even then, I'm not sure my old Linux PC would be up to the challenge of handling a modern game like that, anyway... Its main use is as a workstation; I write Linux/Unix code for a living...)

Yeah, his PC is old and decrepit. I think the last PC gaming he did was Civ IV. Not Civ V, Civ IV. I'll just suck it up and use a damn controller.
