Um, unless Valve designed those portals within the past 10 days or so, I highly doubt they "stole" anything. The length of programming time for Valve to make those portals probably was 10x longer than prey has been available on the market, so I don't see how they could have gotten the software from Prey to "steal" it.

You're wrong. The gaming community has known about the portals since '97. It's not like people found out about them after PREY came out. Also, according with your calculations, it takes 100 days to make a game like PORTAL? 10 days X 10 = 100 days, so wrong again.:p I'm not saying they're stealing, but the timing is just wrong. Games take stuff from other games, so we can have cooler games. One game features a "gimmick" and if it's cool, other companies start developing their own version of it. HL2 had the gravity gun, and then the Doom3 expansion featured one too. This thread is not to argue about which version is better, but just to point out that PREY did it first.

Well, they already know people like it, and they've had time to improve on it. I believe PORTAL is just a tech demo to test the technology and then this will be implemented in a full game. Also, I believe modders will bring the portal gun to PREY once the SDK is released, and the devs could also implement that in a sequel/expansion pack.
