20 FPS version incoming.
Was the orange box PS3 really that bad? I remember kotaku and others saying it was 100% unplayable which was far from the truth, but still 20FPS is pretty bad.

But yeah it might be an EA team porting it, or a mistake, don't know.

No, it's no where near that bad. It's pretty much the same as the 360 one, just with patches of dodgy framerate and some AA. It looks nicer than the 360 version.

Orange Box on the PS3 was really only 50% unplayable.

Clearly Valve wasn't happy milking only the Xbox and PC audience.

Valve greed is good for PS3 gamers.

That site has PC listed twice, so it's more likely to be a typo of some sort. It'd be nice, but I'm also more used to the mindset of playing a Valve game on a PC so I wouldn't get this anyway unless I had a serious gaming rig.

PC is listed twice since "PC Download" is implying Steam in addition to the retail copy.

Sue me for not catching the little word in the corner for each tab. Kinda strange though especially after the reveal of it being exclusive to Microsoft platforms. Anybody know the specific studio that covered the Source engine PS3 ver.?

Would buy.
Would rather play it on my console in 20-30FPS in HD than on my PC in 800x600 getting the same FPS.

Bollocks! Half-Life 2 plus episodes were great aside from a few frame rate hiccups and Portal was as good as the PC version. The only part that suffered was TF2, and even that wasn't too bad.
I can back this. 100% my exp. with the game

Aren't the Orange Box PS3 port problems pretty easily avoidable at this point in time? Many first gen games for any platform have been worse.
