Portal 2 Early Release

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Buy it

Portal 2 will be released early if you feed the greedy Valve Corporation more money. Go waste $38 on this Crap and maybe they will release the game early. I know I contributed by not buying it, but advertising it instead so other people can buy it :D Like all Valve updates, a trip to the steam forums must be made to see what is up.

    First: I was right Second: I believe this is actually quite a brilliant marketing campaign, the whole ARG and what not. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it is the indie game devs that get the potato sack money
    Well, maybe the bread. Maybe.

    I don't quite understand the 'rage'. From what I can tell, the more people collect potatoes, the earlier portal 2 will be released right? So if no one gave a crap, the game would be released as normal. I don't think anything is wrong with that.

    Actually, if I understand right, it's not the potatoes just playing the games (this is unverified, so I'm not sure)

    It's a refreshing marketing way but personally I don't like it because it's too obvious and I'm not really affected of it.

    Just gonna point out: Even without people playing that sack games its STILL ONLY 90 HOURS. An early release on that isn't that much. Second they are asking for players for Indie games, they get a cut of money but still they're more after the publicity. You just have to play the games to contribute to early release. I mean we should be celebrating, its only once in a century that Valve time comes ahead of world time, I fear I may not live to see this day again

    I totally forgot to say that: despite that this release date is delayed, this will be the first time a Valve game comes out early Also: http://www.gamingmasters.co.uk/portal/ We are 16 hours ahead with the completion of the WEOTW bar

    I wonder actually if Valve have the servers to support all the people who'll be downloading Portal 2 at release.

    yeah pre-load<3 although its annoying as hell to think about the fact that you do infact have the whole game on your computer but can't play until 19th
    Common sense is not so common
