    Do yourself a favour and buy Portal 2 afterwards. Awesome game.

    Seriously, Valve? Stop being so awesome; it's starting to hurt.

    Now if only I had a computer that could run Portal...

    EDIT: Hey, it seems this news has coincided with the creation of my new avatar. Sweet.

    I'll try again when I wake up.

    Hm, this could be a mistake on Valve's part on making it free. We'll see if it's still free in the morning [​IMG]

    Dreamland.
    It probably got overloaded from the amount of people downloading their free copy.

    Just wait till tomorrow.

    They're trying to increase Portal 2 sales. Sensible move that will also please the Steam community, Good idea, Valve.

    Wow your right. After downloading portal 1 I have the strange feeling that I must download the second one. Valve you are smart.

    look like the sale may of been a mistake, its back to 19.99, luckily i got it added to my account, its downloading still

    or maybe it was limited to a certain amount of downloaders, not sure
