Cross-Platform Gaming In Portal 2?

Valve has spoken many times of their intention of having cross-platform online gaming on their titles, but for whatever reasons it hasn't been done yet. Now it's the turn for Portal 2 to try out as Valve has announced the intention of introducing the feature in Portal 2. Mike Dunkle, member of the development team, said:
"The plan is you will be able to play between console and PC."
Valve has already mentioned that they were “studying” the possibility for Left 4 Dead but in the end it came to nothing. Main issues always refer to the theoretical disadvantage that console users would suffer against the more accurate mouse+keyboard control scheme. Portal 2 could be the game to start this.
