Default Portal 2 On Sale for $30 at Amazon

In a surprise move by Amazon, Portal 2 is on sale for $30 right now. For a game that was just launched two weeks ago (read our review), this is surprising. Especially so considering the overwhelming positive reception it has received from players and critics alike - if the Metacritic score of 95 wasn’t enough to go by. If you were waiting to save a few bucks before buying the game, then this may be your best chance for a while, as we expect this deal will be hard to beat for some time.

Fantastic deal. I'm surprised that this is STILL the price at Amazon, over a week later.

Agreed! That price is almost ridiculous. I wonder what the story is behind this, because it's a little unusual to see a good game discounted so fast.
