Valve Has a Surpise for Us?
Valve sent a rather odd email to Toms Hardware the other day. It announced that it would be ditching it’s big Portal 2 announcement at this years E3 event. Instead it plans to announce something much bigger. The mysterious email they received is here:
“Dear Subject Name Here,
Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word “surprise”, of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.
If you’d like to ask fruitless questions about the E3 Portal 2 surprise or, more fruitfully, schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve’s Special Envoy to Surprises.
Thank you for <<RECORD SCRATCH!!!>>
PS: The surprising record scratch is also not the surprise.”
Does this mean that we will finally be getting the Half Life: Episode 3 everoyne has been waiting for? Or perhaps will we be seeing the announcement of Half-Life 3 or CounterStrike 2? We will see during E3. What do you guys think it is?
