There seem to be three different things available: Portal 1, 2 and Companion Edition. What's the Companion Edition? How is it different from just 1 and 2?

The Companion is 2.7 gigs and Portal 2 is 7 gigs. How can that be?

Not sure how they did it, but that’s what they did:

e: might be just additional content that they didn’t ship with the Companion Edition.

”Portal is 2.6GB in size while Portal 2 is 7.3GB. You can download them separately and there are achievements, the developer commentary, and the Still Alive content, as well as all bonus maps, with added gyro controls.”

I installed the Companion Edition, but only Portal 1 appears to be there. Do you have to download 2 separately? That would explain the small file size.

The dumps are two separate nsps, so I would expect two separate downloads.

This looks to be exactly correct:

so the answer to OP is…well…it’s not really any different to Portal and Portal2. It’s literally downloading two games.
