Valve's Chet Faliszek has confirmed via an as-yet unpublished interview with Now Gamer that user-created levels for Portal 2 will be available on PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out this quote.
"The mod tools have to stay on the PC side just because there’s a bunch of dependencies that require the Windows platform," Faliszek told NowGamer. "But the content that comes out is agnostic, and so we will be seeing that on all the platforms. Depending on the platform you’re on I should say, will depend on how we’re delivering it."
Faliszek confirmed that PS3 gamers would receive such content through the upcoming Steam works features. "There’s just a lot of value in engaging the community because they’re smart, they’re thinking of really cool things and we want to be able to have everyone share that," he added.

Valve has released more information about Portal 2. According to developers, cross-platform multiplayer will be supported via the Steam version of the game. Available platforms are: Mac, PC and Playstation 3. Only the XBox 360 will be excluded from this cross-platform game play. This is also the first time that Steam functionality will be brought to a home console system.
"We made a promise to gamers at E3 that Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 would be the best console version of the product," said Valve president Gabe Newell in a statement. "Working together with Sony we have identified a set of features we believe are very compelling to gamers. We hope to expand upon the foundation being laid in Portal 2 with more Steam features and functionality in DLC and future content releases."
"We designed the Portal 2 PS3 experience to be very straightforward for gamers," explained Portal 2 project lead Josh Weier. "PS3 gamers will be able to simply drop the Blu-Ray disc in the PS3, link to their Steam account from inside the game, and all their Steam friends (on PC and Mac) will be visible and accessible for chat and game invites."
