    Portal used to cost money. Until May 24th, it's free. End of story.

    Well, technically speaking, there are some strings attached. Fortunately, they're entirely decorative. We just like the way they look, swaying in the gentle breeze created by a million people simultanously fainting from shock at the news that Portal is free. Now you have no reason not to try Portal.

    "I have a reason," some of you are probably typing into an angry email. "You see, sir, I own a Mac."

    Well guess what: For the first time ever, Portal is also available for the Mac.

    "Capitol news! But the excellent puzzle adventure Portal won over 40 Game of the Year awards; Surely it must cost at least five or six hundred dollars."

    You'd think that, especially since it actually won over 70 Game of the Year Awards. But, like we keep saying, Portal is free. Free on the Mac. Free on the PC. But only until May 24th. So you only have a few days to decide if your free copy of Portal is worth the price we're currently charging - which is you ever-so-slightly moving your index finger just barely enough to click the big red "download" button right there to the left.

    Wow, this is great. It's not even a "Free Weekend" kind of thing where you lose access after the 24th. If you install it prior to the 24th, it's yours forever.

    Yeah it's not a "try" thing. It's free forever if you download before May 24th.

    Sssweeet, I've been going back and forth on whether or not to just pay full price for this game for so long, and now it's free!! What luck. :D

    Is it actually free permanently if you download it now? From the description it sounds like a free trial until the 24th.

    Even if it is a free trial, it's a 5 hour long game, why would you buy it after completing it?

    From what i gather it's free without stipulations. I just downloaded it & there's no sign of an end date.

    I love me Portal. If you're a PC gamer and haven't played it yet you owe yourself to download it now. No excuses!

    I didn't like the demo, but who can complain if it's free? Hopefully the full game changes my mind about Portal.

    is this the same game as the one that comes with nVIDIA card owners on steam? (portal first slice) I never bothered to install as HL2 based games make me dizzy (dunno why too)

    Portal:
    A one hour tutorial: all the levels in the game before the twist in the final level.
    A one hour game afterwards: the final level after the twist.

    But those two hours are tasty and are better than padding the damned thing out to 6 hours.
