Valve’s hugely anticipated first-person puzzle game Portal 2 has launched on Steam and is currently retailing at a price of £29.99. The game doesn’t launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Europe until April 21st, although it is currently available on all three platforms in North America. This is also the first of Valve’s games to launch simultaneously on Windows and Mac using the SteamPlay cross-compatibility functionality.
