It could be a marriage ordained by the gods themselves. Some details have emerged concerning aspects of Steam on the PS3.
Many PlayStation owners were delighted with the news that Valve planned on implementing their games-distrubution technology across the PlayStation network. Now we can get a glimpse of what is to come.
Portal 2 is going to be the first game to test the waters and see if this is something PS3 owners are going to warm to. The follow-up to 2007′s Portal on the PS3 will have all the niceties of the PC version; friends, chat, achievements etc. You can even save your game on Steam Cloud and continue from another PS3, much like PC users can currently do.
In order to set up Steam on the PS3 your Steam account must be linked to your PlayStation account. After that you’ll have an overlay in Portal 2, giving you access to your friends-list, achievements and all that good stuff. You don’t need to have an existing Steam account, you can simply create a new one if you’ve never used Steam before.
If you don’t mind spoilers you can head over to Giant Bomb to see the first 20 minutes of single-player and co-op.
Portal 2 will be hitting store shelves and download slots on the 19th of April (NA) and will be available on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and the Mac.
