Portal 2 Store

An unexpected store is present in the co-op area of Portal 2, where players can purchase items to customize Atlas and P-body, the pair of robot protagonists for the co-op campaign in Valve's just-launched puzzle sequel. You must have in-game access to the Steam community enabled in order to access the store, where you will be able to use real money to buy virtual customizations for the otherwise generic 'bots. And yes, hats are included.

Charging for levels fragments the community. I can not believe that anyone would actually argue in favor of paying for them.. Especially when Valve has taken the stance that levels and game play changing items should never be paid items precisely because it fragments the community.

Thats why all you see are vanity items. They give you no advantage, and don't fragment the community. Think before you argue in favor of what MS has done to the console world...

Fair points but if I am going to give the industry money for something I'd rather it be content than meaningless filler. Paying for hats encourages them to make more frivolous shit that takes less work to develop. Paying for levels may fragment the so called community but most MP games are largely transitory anyway and quite a few fragment themselves already with mods and etc.

I mean hey if Valve wants to give me levels for free I won't argue with them or something. At the same time though I'd rather keep the development incentive on more meaningful content instead of...hats In the meantime we will ignore the silly hat type crap and let other people support my free levels with their silly hat purchases
