Default [Free!] VALVe opens up Portal for 12 Days

For those of you that have missed the (seeming) pop culture juggernaut that is POrtal, VALVe is letting anyone that has a Steam account download and play it for free over the next 12 days.

EDIT BY NOX: To be clear, Valve is GIVING the game away for FREE until May 24th. You effectively 'buy' the game for FREE and once you do it will be playable on your account forever as an 'owned' title. The game DOES NOT expire on the 24th, rather you have until then to get your FREE copy of the game. How sweet is that?



Here's a link to the page on Steam with all the details.

Pretty cool thing for Valve to do, just a couple of months after adding all those super secret easter eggs into the game and changing the ending too.....
