Default Portal 2 On Sale for $30 at Amazon

In a surprise move by Amazon, Portal 2 is on sale for $30 right now. For a game that was just launched two weeks ago (read our review), this is surprising. Especially so considering the overwhelming positive reception it has received from players and critics alike - if the Metacritic score of 95 wasn’t enough to go by. If you were waiting to save a few bucks before buying the game, then this may be your best chance for a while, as we expect this deal will be hard to beat for some time.


Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!

Fantastic deal. I'm surprised that this is STILL the price at Amazon, over a week later.

Agreed! That price is almost ridiculous. I wonder what the story is behind this, because it's a little unusual to see a good game discounted so fast.
