No, it contains spoilers for the first game. Really, if Valve are releasing information about it now and its not released till christmas, it is safe to say that that info is not a spoiler.

Do people seriously somehow magically avoid all information about a game before they play it and then get all surprised or something even though some character is in all the trailers and on the box art?
Especially pages 52 and 53 of those scans contain the beginning of the Portal 2 story, so that could be seen as a spoiler.
Personally, I'd rather play a game without knowing too much about the story. I'd rather go "Oh, wow" than "Oh yeah, I read about this". Especially with such a story-driven game as Portal.

But I agree, the game sounds great :)
As much fun as co-op sounds though, I don't think it'll have much replay value. Which is too bad, because co-op's fun.

They have a completely different coop campaign just for coop  ;D

I probably will when this comes out, given that the only other person i know who plays p.c games has some kind of grudge against valve.

Oh yes! I am not going to watch any new trailers, read any new articles, and probably won't even check this topic anymore. Did the same thing with Mass Effect 2 and it worked out great! :D

Yeah, I actually did that with Mass Effect 2 as well >_>

But in my experience Valve is a little more careful with its previews and prerelease info than Bioware is.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Or perhaps its fluctuating briefly in and out of real time, valve scientists may have worked out how to time these fluctuations with release dates.

But yeah, early next year probably, although I'm more interested in when episode three, (or black mesa), is going to be released.
