Submitted by dotarray
dotarray (1747900) writes "Even though the announcement only mentions one game — the original Portal — and not its sequel, it marks an exciting milestone: This is the first time Valve has moved into the mobile space — the Shield is powered by Android. This suggests the Source Engine is happy to run on ARM processors, meaning that other Source games could potentially also make the leap to other ARM devices like mobile phones and tablets."
