According to Next Generation, the 'Orange Box' will be arriving on October 9th for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Good news, albeit hot on the tail of Halo 3's September 25th release. It's going to be a busy fall...
I'll put money on an enjoyable fall — upwards of one hundred twenty dollars, to be exact.
Whew... that was close. Thanks MagizOriginally posted by Magiz:
Silly, Ed. I think you mean Halo 3 good sir.
I can't wait to play through Half Life 2 again. What a great game. It seems as though everyone's found something in particular to become fascinated with: for some it's the physics; for others the sound; still others mess around with the AI for hours. Valve has some really talented folks working for them...
The Half-Life 2 levels "Anticitizen One" and "Follow Freeman!" are what Halo 2 levels "Outskirts" and "Metropolis" could have been, and should have been. So the campaign of Halo 3 has a little to prove.
I hope J.B. reads this, and I hope that when he reads this he turns, buries his head into Brooke's shoulder and cries.
If the game is $50 or less, booyeah - my money is as good as theirs.
But there's no reason to charge over $50 on PC. I have HL2 and Episode 1. Packaging it again in the Orange Box is great for people who don't have either, but for those who have both, it was a sad day they canned the Black Box, which was exactly what I needed.
If the price is wrong, I guess this might be my first purchase via steam for hopefully JUST the games I want. Looking very forward to all 3.
Great to hear HL2 is finaly getting a release on 360 just wish it was sooner, i.e. something to play well waiting for Halo 3 , it would have been perfect for that... . :shades:
I wonder if Half-Life 2 will be as well received by the console community as it was the PC. Take for example, Halo series, which is very popular on console, but failed pretty bad on PC.
Should be neat to see how it works out.
Half Life 2 was already a success (critical and otherwise) on the original Xbox, Braiog. I've never had the opportunity to play the game on a decent PC, but Valve did an excellent job getting the engine running on Xbox despite that system's specs.
I can only imagine smooth sailing for the game's transition to the 360...
Ed — if half-measure adjustments made for the 360 were enough for me to play the game through with no difficulties, a proper port will be something that can only be experienced.
