    As you may or may not know there was recently a little package released on the 360 called the orange box, it included Half Life/Episode 1/2 that's a total of 3 games, 3 very good games but it doesn't end there as owners of this package also got a tasty treat in team fortress 2 an on ine team based multiplayer which was a cult hit in its previous release. Now the 5th game is known as 'Portal' a mind bending puzzle game, you need to shoot portals on ceilings/floors/walls/angles and transport yourself and inanimate objects around areas, it was is a hit as far as popularity goes. It was fairly short yet rumours were going round recently of a full retail version was to be made, motion controls to go with a game which could benefit and it could go with the Wii's target audience casual yet it appeals to the hardcore gamer.

    However...

    They have told us that it's not in production but it is an interesting prospect and they didn't completely rule it out.

    keep one eye open in the future.

    The Portal game itself is kind of like a test really it's not a 'full' game however the rest of the orange box itself is pretty awesome, Half Life /Ep 1/2 + team fortress:yesnod:

    The Wii can't support the graphics of Half-Life 2 or Portal for that matter. There is no way this is going down.

    There is a very small chance but it is very unlikely.

    Why port the engine and tone it down when you are trying to focus on other consoles.

    actually the Portal game is very small, short,m and simple but complex,

    i mean the game layout is simple, but the levels to play are complex,

    anyhow, if they were to port just portal, then the wii could easily handle it as its a short game, and the wii could focus miuch of its power on graphics aswell,

    i mean look at SMG graphics on that are superb and thats a huge game, so why not portal?

    if it were half life though, then hell yeah no chance could Wii deal withh all that and graphics,

    and even worse if it were the whole orange box

    God Portal is too clever for me.

    A friend bought it and he brought it over the boyfriend house one day and I just could not get around it. As soon as I understood how to do one thing, they introduced something else which totally spun me out.

    For some reason I can imagine a wii version of this being even more complicated.

    Think I'll casually avoid this one and save myself the embarrassment :lol:

    Those are amazing news, i have played the game a bit and it will definitely work nicely on the Wii. Also for me at least all the other games in the orange box are crap as for half life they just put random things in their maps so that players will be using the physics gun and saying wow cool game! The physics engine of the game is amazing but unfortunately the games themselves luck in a lot of ways including gameplay and i really cant see the big fuss about them! I mean would you play halo, gears of war, metroid or the crapy half life? I wont buy the game since the only decent game is portal and i am more than happy now that there is a possibility that they will release a portal game on the Wii that hopefully will be longer that the original. This will also give the chance to people like myself to pay 20 pounds to buy a nice game (portal only) and not pay 45 to buy a bunch of old releases including a small short update that is also not really good!

    I hope it will eventually come to the Wii, the 3D puzzling genre is completely dead, so it's good to see this game as a positive breath of fresh air.

    Portal is an amazing game, but it's totally not really meant for the Wii.
    Never heard any rumors of it, anyway. Lol.

    Care to back up your statement?

    --

    Also about Portal, I heard that they (Valve) recently hired some new developers and they were set on a project (Portal) it is basically just a small project but in future you may find a full retail version.

    That whole game package is probably the best deal in gaming to date, and I would definitely buy Portal for Wii, since I'm assuming they would add more levels and such.

    I also played the original Team Fortress for over a year when it was a free mod for Quake... good times.

    I played through portal on the PC.. got 100% achievments and I still go back and play somtimes :)


    I never really though about it but I think portal would be GREAT for the wii.. You have to play the game and do some of the time challenges and such to know exactly how great it would be.

    Imagine lvl 18 time trial using the wiimote!!! that would be exciting.
