What the Hell Is Going On With Aperture Science? [UPDATE]

With the Portal 2 ARG coming to a close, it's not surprising that Valve would put the collective gaming public in a huge spin. That appears to be what's happening right now.

Some individuals are saying that Portal 2's early release depends on the number of hours spent playing games from the Potato Sack, a collective of indie games released through Steam. Others are simply stating the obvious: The apocalypse is upon us.

Me? When I head to aperturescience.com, the source for all this absurdity, I get this happy holiday scene. Where are you in the grand scheme of things?

UPDATE:

So maybe there's something to the whole potato sack conspiracy? Apparently aperturescience.com/glados@home shows a list of CPUs currently running games in Valve's Potato Sack Bundle. If you've got Defense Grid: The Awakening, Killing Floor, Cogs, Rush, Toki Tori, Bit.Trip BEAT, 1... 2... 3... Kick It!, Audiosurf, The Wonderful End of the World, Super Meat Boy, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, AAAAAA!!!!, or The Ball try booting one or several of them up to help GLaDOS wake up!

Not that it matters anyway.... Damn PS3 preorder....
