Big news for cross-platform fanatics.  Portal 2 has been confirmed to be a cross-platform multiplayer title.  Due to the new Steamworks integration to debut in the PS3 version of the game, PS3 owners will be able to link up with PC owners and play multiplayer games through Valve’s Steam Network.

Anyone who purchases a copy of Portal 2 for the Playstation 3 will get a free copy of Portal 2 for the PC simply for linking your Steam account to your PSN account.  So you PS3 owners, get to setting up those Steam accounts now, you never know what games might find your way if you do!  And if you’re a Mac owner, fear not, Steam’s Mac client will also support Portal 2 when it comes out.

Portal 2 is coming April 21st, 2011 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.  The Xbox 360 version will not support cross platform multiplayer.

Nintendo’s highly anticipated next handheld, the 3DS, finally has a definite release date and a retail price.  It will be released March 27th, 2011 for $249 US.  The handheld’s major innovation is in its glasses-free 3D screen.  It will also have an analog stick, tilt sensors, 3D camera, and a built-in pedometer.

Two colors will be at launch, aqua blue and cosmo black.  They will also come with a 2GB SD card for memory.  It will also be compatible with SDHC cards (which you can buy separately).

The system will be backwards compatible with DS and DSi games.  Also, the system will be able to connect to an online store where you’ll be able to purchase downloadable versions of classic Game Boy and Game Boy Color games (something I’ve wanted them to bring to the Wii Shop Channel for a while now).  For those of you who already have DS or DSi software, system transfer of your data will be supported after launch.
