It very very much is a console port

You keep using that word, but I do not think it means what you think it means.

Here's an accepted definition of console port for reference:

"Console Port" is a term specifically used to describe a game that was originally made for a console (such as PS3 or Xbox 360) before an identical version is created which can be played on a personal computer. This term has been widely used by the gaming community, primarily in a negative way due to the higher levels of performance that computers had during that generation of gaming.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porting

Portal 2 was first developed, written, and designed on a PC. If it was "ported" to anything, it was ported to a console.

Now you might be able to successfully argue that its user interface and gameplay style was designed to work for multiple platforms, but that *does NOT* make it a console port.
