Portal 2 DLC Announced, Free on All Platforms April 29, 2011

Valve Software has announced that the first DLC pack (dubbed DLC #1) will be released this summer for Portal 2.  The DLC will include new test chambers, challenge modes, and multiplayer leaderboards.

The DLC is expected for PC, Xbox 360, Mac and PS3 and will be free on all platforms.

I’m curious how these new features are going to be integrated into the core game.  The multiplayer and singleplayer components of the game are pretty self-contained, there would be no way to expand them with new test chambers.  My guess is they’re going to have to update the game in some way to add menus to access the new content, which is probably going to be self-contained.

Sony Sending Out Playstation Rewards Gifts April 29, 2011

I got an envelope today with the Sony Playstation logo as the return address.  I figured it was probably some kind of long catalog or binder.  When I opened it up, there was an extra-large black t-shirt with Japanese lettering on it that spelled out Playstation.

Enclosed with the t-shirt was a thank you from Sony for participating in the Playstation Rewards Beta Test.  Because I had tiered during the Rewards test, I had gotten the shirt.

For those of you who were also beta testers for the Playstation Rewards program, you will probably be getting your goodies soon as well.  I don’t know what higher tiered users will be getting, but I was the lowest tier and I got this shirt, so if you were on a low tier, you’ll probably get that.

Sony did announce they’re not following through with fully launching the Playstation Rewards program just now.  It’s likely that they decided it just wasn’t worth it when they made that decision, so unfortunatly if you weren’t part of the Rewards beta, I don’t think they’re going to do another one just now.

If anyone else got something different from Sony since you got a higher tier, please post a comment!
