E-Mail : tylermcvicker@yahoo.com Steam Group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/VNN Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/valvenewsnetwork?ty=h Today on Valve News Network, we go over the entire history of Portal, and talk about many things that were left in Beta or cut entirely. Most of what is seen in this video has never been seen before by the public, and I am very happy to be able to share it with you today. I would like to thank everyone that has helped me make this video, as it took quite a long time to make, and had many ups and downs during creation. adam crash - writer - Intro There will be more where this came from, however it will probably take even longer to do future videos of this magnitude for a while.

I think another Portal would be better than HL3

What is the background music? I hear it everywhere! Is it from portal? It's kinda cool and creepy.
Ellis_The_Block_Monger (5 months ago)
I think I prefer the half life look...
soldier22881 (5 months ago)
wow old portal souns so much better than retail portal. So much potential lost, we could have goten 2 ending: 1 sescaping the facility and 2 fighting glados. Instead we got some okayish puzzles and a boring last boss fight. would have been nice to play as either a dude or a chick in the game too instead of chell.
I do not respect this playtesters.

Caleb Hayes (5 months ago)
i think ValVe should have kept the swrils,but ony as a computer only fecher would have been nice but i still like portal
glados before the glados today was called "the mainframe" with a circle around a sphere with a red spot on the bottom of the sphere
this counter: 20

tbh i love the idea of the boss fight making the player feel guilty
YaBoiAmsung (6 months ago)
I dont think we need a portal 3, the ending was good and also it has a workshop so theres plenty to do

It’s not half life three, it’s half-life 2.5

I hope someday you'll be able to do this with Portal 2, I really wonder what F-STOP played like

one time I got a copy of portal through steam. it had those swirl portals. is this rare? if i got a copy of the game when it was released i would be 2 years old, i got this a few years after portal 2's release. I don't got the copy now because I lost the password to that old account, but it was very strange to me.

Did you listen to the Developer Commentary? It says a lot of detailed information about what they changed during development and why.
Ahempleasegoaway (7 months ago)
All of the Portal stuff happened around the time I was born.
Ahempleasegoaway (7 months ago)
Now, I'd do anything for Portal 3.

aug 2006 is my favorite, dont really like the retail
grafimir Gmr (8 months ago)
10:40 They could have changed the roles in that version and it would have worked. You confront Glados and then the A.I. would chase you, trying to kill you while you try to escape the facility, solving small puzzles along the way. The facility and A.I. would all blow up just as you finally got out of the facility.

I haven't played Portal. Kill me.

16:53 F-Stop? Yeah I'm sure it was a great idea but don't apply it to a game titled: "Portal" Apply it to a new franchise.
Jules (9 months ago)
the turret being the same as hl2 and the nova prospekt look makes the portal beta look like a hl2 expantion pack on nova prospekt
Joujoubox (9 months ago)
What's wierd is that many of these early screenshots are present in the Gallery section for Portal: Still Alive on the Xbox 360 marketplace.
Expeditions With Matt (9 months ago)
I'd be willing to play Portal in the Half-Life 2 textures because it gives a very different feel that intrigues me. Maybe, I don't know, the puzzles are challenges for captured members of the resistance to solve. Just an idea.
Green Emeralds (9 months ago)
I’m just amazed how good the graphics were for 2007. They still hold up today

Does anyone know if the HL2 aesthetic was intended initially to take place in a Combine facility? Or was it all just placeholder?
Mr mine splat (10 months ago)
Android port of portal what ?
Big Dog (10 months ago)
The Memester Gangster (10 months ago)
It seems that in the beta you were supposed to be in some kind of combine facility since it does look very similar to nova prospect and has many of the unusual geometric shapes used for things like doors that the combine used.

Mr.Tito Pyne (11 months ago)
All these whiny arrogant PC lovers who think console is the devil make me wanna jump off a cliff. The game was delayed so more people could play it, and so that Valve could make more money to make more games. It's not the end of the world. Quit being so whiny because you had to wait longer for your video game because people using other devices wanted to play too. You aren't the only people who wanted to play this game.

So about that next video were you discuss the horrible issues after orangebox released. Keep in mind when it did I was trying to contact the SDK Tools Team, and successfully did resulting in numerous bugs being fixed most of which was a resolved by a single command extension to the launcher.

Is it possible to obtain these versions still?
Mr P Lotor (1 year ago)
I think there should be a portal mod where you select a date like mid 2005 to late 2006 and get to see what portal pre alpha used to look like. Yes, I know "portal project alpha"
Yelen Turquoise (1 year ago)
Damn, the idea of Portal being Combine technology and them testing on humans is very intresting!

can i still play the rocket ending? the bullet hell one?
SomeoneNamedSeagull (1 year ago)
i got a gearbox ad. 👌😂👌💯
I believe that the reason why they took on a Nova Prospekt look was because the plan to have Half-Life 2 and Portal in the same universe was already planned, having the test subject, Cell, being tested by the combine using advanced portal technology on Unaltered human beings.

I bet Valve will release The orange box 2 with half life 3 half life 3 episode 1 half life 3 episode 2 half life 3 episode 3 portal 3 and team fortress 3 How awesome would that be? :D

not to make you sad, but as we all know _valve can't count to three_

Shouldn't you be able to shoot portals through portals? Cuz if I'm correct, they transport, EVERYTHING
Matthew R (1 year ago)
Well, technically you can, as shown by the footage at 17:30.

I'd really like to play some of this cut content, explore the original endings, and see this stuff. Is there a Missing Information style mod to try this stuff?

The only way Portal 3 would work is if it is in old aperture...but not old...(basically the functional old aperture).
