110w ago - Valve VP of Marketing Doug Lombardi has revealed Portal 2 for PlayStation 3 Steam details today for fans, as follows:

While people were excited to hear about the PS3 game's inclusion of Steam access to Portal 2 on any PC or Mac, they also had a bunch of questions.
So, here's a bit more info about Steam on the PS3.
Portal 2 for PlayStation 3 is the first title to support Steam on a console. Specifically, that means it offers cross-platform matchmaking, gameplay, friends, chat, and achievements, all powered by Steam.
Steam on the PS3 also saves co-op game progress and single player saved games to the Steam Cloud, enabling players to pick up where they left off on any PlayStation 3.

There's five of us in the private screening room and Dax Ginn, marketing game manager at Rocksteady, has just played through an early mission from Arkham City, lasting around 30 minutes, which I'm not going to spoil for you. We are free to call out questions afterwards and one journalist asks, "Will we see anything like the Scarecrow missions from Arkham Asylum?"
"Did you like the scarecrow stuff?" he replies to slow nods. "Well we did too. Aren't you glad that you didn't know about the Scarecrow levels before you played Arkham Asylum? If they had been part of the marketing campaign they wouldn't have had that kind of impact, so I'm just going to leave it there."
