Buy Portal 2 for the PS3, Xbox 360 or PC? Gamers Dilemma.

Well firstly there is an easy answer to that question - Buy the version for which you own the console! I know it's obvious but if you buy Xbox 360 version for the PS3 it simply won't run. 

A truly awesome game.

But here's a problem, what if you're one of those gamers that has both consoles and isn't too sure? Well basically there is a simple answer to that, buy the PS3 version, not because I am a fan of the PS3 and certainly not because I said so! Well lets see what does each version have:

PC version - The "hardcore version" I say it is but it really isn't original Portal came out on, all of those gamers that might simply get this game to remember your good days in PC gaming because even original Portal is still an Amazing game!
A little side note: its good to check if your PC has the specs to run this a good website for this is - http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/ So check it out if you're interested.

Xbox 360 Version - This version is just the console version of PC game, due to the good graphics engine on Portal 2 the game shouldn't be buggy or jumpy so this version is just a good standard version of the game which if you don't have a PS3 I recommend to get!

PlayStation 3 Version - Why is this version so good? Well let me tell you this version is crème de la crème in gaming especially for the fans. If you have an Xbox and have an Old PS3 laying around I honestly do recommend getting this Version!
Anyway to the point  the reason why I am encouraging you guys to get this version is because with the PS3 version of the game you get a Free Version of the Game on PC through Steam! How awesome is that?! So you basically get two games for price of one, I mean I know you're still buying the game and its the same game but hey we're gamers we don't complain about free stuff and we leap on an opportunity of it!

So let's say we have this scenario, I have an Xbox which I play on most because my friends do, but I do have a brother with a PS3 or you own one yourself and use it as a Blu-ray player? Oh and also own a good PC than can run this... (I mean I know I'm pushing this, Personally I only own the PS3 and an ok PC...) You buy the game on PS3, you register it with Steam with your free voucher code and than BAM you can trade it in the next day and get 90-95% of your money back  yet you still own a version on PC forever which you can play, what does this result in? Portal 2 for PC for a fiver. (I am in NO WAY encouraging this and if you do this you do this at YOUR OWN ACCORD, I am just playing out a scenario here! No hatin'!)

The Only reason the PS3 version is at a Drawback at the moment is because PSN is STILL DOWN! But on the bright side you can play Online again on Sunday when a HUGE update is arriving for the PS3, but I say the single player campaign is long enough to keep you entertained for a day or two and than it's off for one of the funnest Co-ops made!



STILL FAILING *insert rage of Sparta*
