According to Press Release, [Portal 2] is delayed to 2011.
If so, Valve will do something else at E3 2010.
What will they do?

Just showing teaser?
Valve is not such a company. They released 1 game per year recently, even releasing very fast sequel of zombie shooter.
So I guess they will do something else, to shock all the gamers...

However check this Press Release below.





June 9, 2010 -- Aperture Science, doing business as Aperture Laboratories LLC, in partnership with Valve today announced the successful completion of an ethics-review-panel-supervised release date restructuring process. Portal 2, the sequel to the ground-breaking title that earned over 30 Game of the Year awards despite missing its original ship date, is now targeted for a 2011 release.


Representatives from both companies acknowledged that public safety concerns factored into the decision. They went on to say that even though Portal 2 will arrive slightly later than planned, all life on earth won't instantaneously stop as every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light, which is what would happen should a rip ever appear in the fabric of Valve Time.


"Also, the game will be even better," they added, missing an historic opportunity to create the first product delay press release to mention that a product is being delayed to make it worse.


To ask questions about how close we all came to dying, or to ask futile questions about the previously announced E3 ***PORTAL-2-THEMED-FOR-GOD'S SAKE*** surprise or, less futilely, to schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's delegate to the EU's Valve Time Studies Group, Doug Lombardi.

You could see that Spotlight at Steam.
And this is that notice page.

[Portal] is FREE for limited time. There were some similar FREE days event, but they were multiplay-FPS & hook people to buy. [Portal] is short & 1 player game, so player will see ending within that date & forget. [Portal 2] will come out, but far later. So why such an event, all of a sudden?

Steam released Mac client & started selling Mac Games,
and this might be notice event for them.

And they started using 'Steamplay' word, which menas 'If you buy 1 game, you could play it with both of Windows / Mac'. In the past, there were some Digital Distribution stores which sold Mac, but that's just 'we have stock' situation. And of course, you must buy those version seperately. This time, Steam started something about Mac games, and game market could be different once again.
