The E3 2008 announcement that Valve Software would be making an Xbox 360-only version of Portal, called Portal: Still Alive has understandably ruffled a few feathers in the PC community. What exactly will Xbox owners be getting that PC owners can't have?

As it turns out, not a whole lot. In fact, nothing.

Speaking to GameSetWatch, Valve's Doug Lombardi explained that the Xbox 360 version of Portal will not expand on the story any further than has already been done in other versions of the game.

Instead, Portal: Still Alive will focus on bringing console gamers some new challenges and levels, namely those adaptations of the levels seen in Portal: The Flash Game, the 2D adaptation of the original game. These maps are already freely available for PC gamers as a mod and have been for some time.

Lombardi also confirmed that Valve will not be adding anything significant to these maps and that the evil but ever popular AI, GlaDOS, will not feature at all in these extra levels.

So, don't worry PC gamers - those consolites won't be getting anything you can't already get for free. Good, eh? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
