I'm pretty sure all of you already know this, but you can get into the advanced section of one of the chambers in the normal chamber. I think it was the companion sphere thing, I can't recall...

Yeah, there's a leftover room in Chamber 17. It's used in the Advanced map, but there's no way to get it legitimately during normal gameplay.

I'm not TOTALLY sure, since I haven't tried, but I think OoB will allow you to get there without console cheats. Of course, OoB is an exploit so it's not exactly "legitimate" either, but whatever.
Rest in peace, Kym. I hardly knew ya.
Rest in peace, Marinus. A bright star, you were ahead of me on my own tracks of thought. I miss you.

Something cool about Portal 2 that I've noticed from the few videos of it:

The broken-down chambers are direct recreations of Portal Test Chambers. On one of the videos you can see Test Chamber #IDK.

Look at this image.

Now, see this.

I can't wait. :D

That's Valve for you. :wink:

Hell, there was even a throwback to Half-Life in HL2: Episode Two.
