Default Portal 2 Comes Out Tomorrow At 9 AM (PST) (April 15, 2011)

... And the main surprise has already been spoiled for me, by some douchebag on Youtube (I was watching a trailer and accidentally looked down)

http://www.aperturescience.com/a/b/c/d/g/h/abcdgh/

There is the countdown link.

It's a ploy to get us to buy the potato sack in the hopes that it will release Portal 2 early!

The link you linked it different now.

Yup, sorry guys, false alarm.

GLaDOS@Home distributed computational grid status

No matter what or how hard people try to get it released early, a Tuesday release is inevitable.

Well judging by the numbers currently, enthusiasm is sure dying down...
We are looking at a possible 12 hour early release at most.

Just pre-ordered, downloading it right now. This game and BF3 are the ONLY games I will be buying this year, and maybe brink. Everything else is shit.


PS. anyone need a code for portal 1? I got one that I can gift, but I already have it.
