Also, VALVe are making so much $$$$ from PC i don't see why they would stop it noaw
A good reason would be because the now Generic Call of Duty games keep racking in the Billions every years. What CoD game is coming out this year? Call of Duty: Generic Game 3? Thats why a company like Valve would do that.

I know I am going to get alot of hate for this but really what is so great about valve?

I will admit steam is a godsend, and valve gets extreme props for its creation, however I talking about their abilities as developers.

Recently their games have been low par; im thinking l4d and l4d2; sure kinda fun but I would never pay more the the 6$ I got for it. Portal was awesome but way too short, then there are games like TF2 which I really dont see the appeal in, especially now with the item store. Also I tried playing HL2, even with the cinematic mod it felt dated in both gfx and gameplay. While the story was awesome, the gameplay was just too boring for me to get through.

Well HL2 is well over half a decade old. When it came out everyone and their mom was orgasming through 15 layers of clothing and cooking the neighbors pig as a celebration. The reason people like tf2 is because of the -mostly- casual gameplay. It's one of the best if not -the- best community out there. Bunch of cool people kicking back and having a good time. But I believe the hats and stuff ruined the community a little bit Maybe you're just not a fan of the steam engine, I know not everyone is.

I stopped playing tf2 because of the item drop feature use to be one of my favorite games

It's not going to be a console port, but it will look very similar to the console version, as Orange Box showed the 360 could cope with Source quite well. It isn't about graphics, as Valve has never made games based on incredible graphics.

Valve has a vested interest in making the PC version incredible. When you buy Portal 2 on the PS3 you also get in on PC. Valve is doing this to bring more people to PC, where they have a higher profit margin due to publishing their own games.

Don't worry, Valve's got your back. And they will be paid handsomely for it, as they should.

oh really? i think their source engine is still directX 9 and only dual-core aware

i think they're going to use the same engine for portal 2 too.

Few things.

1) The value of Portal is the gameplay, not the graphics.
2) The controls are already similar to a console.
3) Valve is bringing a unified and novel co-op experience (PS3 & PC).
4) No one's expecting the next Crysis (cause C2 is not the next Crysis by any means) out of Portal 2.
