New Portal 2 DLC Uses PS Move

New Portal 2 DLC Uses PS Move

The In Motion DLC pack will make use of Sony's motion controller.

You may recall that when Portal 2 had been out for a few months, you could buy some rather expensive DLC for it. While the In Motion pack was technically free, the Razer Hydra peripheral necessary to play it on a PC cost $140. The days of plunking down the cost of a Wii for Portal 2's most elusive DLC content are finally over, as next week, PSN will acquire the In Motion pack that's compatible with its own Move controller.

Like Opposing Force or Blue Shift for Half-Life before it, In Motion was a product of an outside company instead of Valve. Sixense Studios designed 20 new test chambers for the game and added a few new motion-controlled features, such as rotating and scaling objects. The release of the DLC pack coincides with Portal 2 coming out as a downloadable PSN title, as well as a patch that allows PS3 players to use Move controllers with existing copies of the game. In other words, Portal 2 players on the Xbox 360 will soon be the only ones who have to control Chell's latest adventure with a traditional controller.

In Motion will retail for $9.99 and hit PSN on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 (just in time for Election Day!) in the United States. Unfortunately, there's no word on a European release date yet, but it seems reasonable that In Motion will show up in the Old World sooner rather than later. We hear that portals make getting from place to place much easier than it used to be.

Finally! A GOOD GAME that uses the PS Move! If they keep this up people will eventually feel vindicated for shelling out money on a new control system as they replay year old games in a new way!

Interesting... Is this DLC a co-op one or a single player one...? it's just that, to this day, I've never found anyone to play through the first dlc, 'Peer Pressure', with. My bro keeps saying he will, but he never gets round to it. (don't wanna play with randoms) If this is co-op too, I may not be able to play it. I'd like to though. I have Move.

Sooooo....can i play this without the Move?

Really wish we'd get some dlc on Xbox 360.

Blame Microsoft not wanting to support Steam on their console and forcing VALVe to pay up for everything that it can release at no added cost to them via steam on the PC and PS3.

Peer Review is available on all consoles. ...for free.

Suddenly Im glad they only had a move bundle when I bought my PS3.

No. There's no way to manipulate the size of the objects.

Really looking forward to this and the general Move patch. I'm pretty sure that my wife will have an easier time with the Move than with the standard controller.
Analog sticks are certainly not optimal to orientate yourself in a 3D world, if you were not raised with them.

Kudos to Valve there

No. There's no way to manipulate the size of the objects.

Makes it all the more challenging!

Oh my God! I almost forgot the PS Move existed!
Sounds interesting but can you go raiding the multiverse to find the moneyverse with Cave Johnson and Cave Johnson Prime? chariots.
