The lights are on
[UPDATE] Valve just sent out a statement dashing rumors of any Move support for Portal 2.
The statement reads:
"Hi,There's a story making the rounds regarding Portal 2 support for PS3 Move. Unfortunately this quote was 'lost in translation' -- Portal 2 does not include support for Sony's motion controller. Thanks"
Original Story (February 17 2011 08:51 AM)
Valve has promised to make the PS3 version of Portal 2 the best console version of the game. Does this include Move support?
According to the German PlayStation Blog's interview with Chet Faliszek, a writer at Valve, the PS3 version of Portal 2 will have "volle PlayStation Move Unterstützung," which translates to "full PlayStation Move support." Given the FPS camera and gameplay nature of the game, Move support seems like an easy and excellent choice. On the other hand, Valve Faliszek says that Portal 2 on the PS3 doesn't utilize Sony's other new initiative – 3D – since he doesn't think it would mesh with the gameplay, and Valve would have had to put it in from the beginning.
Would Portal 2 support of Move make you consider getting the peripheral?

This makes the game so much better, but i'm still not gonna shell out the money for Move. Still plan on getting the game, though... eventually.
Definitely would probably make me want one even more after KZ3 and the sharp shooter got such good reviews. SO HARD TO RESIST!
Dang, Portal 2 would be awesome with Move support, but I'm not sure it's worth the cash I'd have to drop for it...I'll chalk this up as a maybe. I'd be more likely to do this if there was a discounted Move bundle with Portal 2, which Sony should really consider anyway since it's bound to move some units.
I'll be one of the first in line to get portal 2, and probably download the PC version soon after but.…
noooo, I'm not going rush out and get move just for that. That seems silly, I'll just take that money and buy other games instead.
def geting portal2 but wouldnt pick up move if they were giving it away
Personally I doubt this is true. I feel like Valve would have announced it already if they were doing it.
awesome.. I already own the move.. and now portal 2 it's a must have.. even more that I could play also on my mac :P
Wow! So you can open portals in the walls of your house!!!
You can't? Oh. Bah, cool anyway.
Already own move, but this makes it more likely that I'll get Portal 2 for the PS3 instead of Xbox.
oh oh oh OH! this would be crazy cool! i've got the Move already, i'm just holding out for more great games with Move support, and Portal 2 will undoubtedly be a great game. PLEASE let this be true!
