Dear Subject Name Here,

Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.

If you'd like to ask fruitless questions about the E3 Portal 2 surprise or, more fruitfully, schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's Special Envoy to Surprises, Doug Lombardi.

Thank you for [RECORD SCRATCH!!!]

PS: The surprising record scratch is also not the surprise.
Damn it Valve.

Sounds like they were planning it all along... I doubt this is a real "cancellation", looks more like typical valve marketing....

Yeah, the "damn it valve" was just my fustration. I love and hate their marketing at the same time.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
My hopes for EP3 have gone slightly up. My hopes will probably destroyed again. But a guy can hope right?

If I were you I wouldn't get your hopes up for Episode 3.

Sounds like it's a surprise that's Portal 2 related judging by that sentence.

My guess for EP3 is that it's going to be renamed HL3 and released in 2012.

Surprise! Portal 2 coming to the PS3.

This news was well worth the wait...
roll

Also steamworks support.

On the PlayStation 3 Portal 2 will be supported by Steamworks, which means auto updates, community features, downloadable content, and more are all possible.

I thought Valve hated the PS3 and said they'd never support it?

Holy shit, more awesome. That orange acceleration stuff (forgot the name already) looks like fun.

Also, it looks like this could get really really tricky to complete. awsm

At 2:40 in this video Doug Lombardi (Valves Vice President of marketing) says Portal 2 is twice as long as the original.
