Portal 2 on sale...
Portal 2 is on a random 75% off sale... could this be a sign that it will soon be released to Linux?
I noticed previous games were in the sale before being released.. like Metro:LL

Let's keep our fingers crossed. :)

Right, I noticed that, too (which is kind of strange because instead of celebrating the Linux port with a sale, they sell it for the normal price and go on sale before even announcing the port).

However, on a website where they had a Steam Machine prototype, they said they had some games running on it and on that list was Portal 2. I'm not sure if they meant that they tried the game native or via game streaming, but let's keep our fingers crossed that it was native and that the port will be ready very soon :)

No, it's the sign of HL4 being released next week.

Total War: Rome II - 25% ;)

... but don't buy now if you want to support Linux gaming.

You would figure Portal 2 would be available for the 300 beta testers for the Steam Machines. So maybe Portal 2 will be on Linux at the same time the 300 machines go out

I'll just wait and see. I took a gamble buying the Orange Box before it was officially released for Linux... and got it. :3 The problem is that you never know if it can already be installed or not, despite it's listed availability, or lack thereof.

I picked it up in April for 75% off because it will eventually be released. I was hoping that it would have already been released by now.

I did that for the Orange Box, and that worked out. Sadly, Portal 2 is not the same case... I hope that it's released in Januarry with the Steam Machines.

WOO HL4!!!

Yeah, it's possible but unlikely, I think it will be released with Steam Machines particularly since they are using it as a demo for their new controller.
