Edit:

From Gamespot:

"What we heard: Ever since the release candidate for Half-Life 2 was submitted to VU Games in mid-September, a piñata has hung in the lobby of Valve's headquarters. The plan: to bust the sucker open when the game achieved gold status. Earlier today, GameSpot learned from an informed sourced that "the piñata has been broken" and the game has gone gold. Further evidence of the game's completion was a press release issued this afternoon touting the first review of "the entire game." Though nothing official has been announced yet, it appears the fat lady is at last clearing her throat."

Bought the Collectors edition for my 16yr old son. He gets great grades and is a great son. He deserves it.

Gee, I thought I'd be able to buy something akin to the silver or gold editions in a B &amp; M, but it looks (by what's been posted here) that I'm mistaken.

The Regular Retail Edition = Bronze Package on Steam

Activision has distribution rights to DoD so only them can put out a Retail Box edition. So that is why there is no "Sliver" like retail edition. And thus why the CE edition doesnt include at least Dod:S

I played cs from .5-1.4, then 1.6- CZ. Source is fcking hot, just cant wait till its "final".

Anyone got bots to work on retail source, i've seen illegal version run em fine, stupid....but fine. Still, I want bots! People are playing way too serious right now and i cant look around like a noob and look at all the pretty things.

10/18/04 HL2 GONE GOLD!!!

ITS FINALLY HAPPENED GUYS!!!!


LOS ANGELES (October 18, 2004) Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) today announced that Half-Life® 2, the sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed PC titles in gaming history, will ship to retail outlets around the world in November. The Company confirmed that Half-Life 2, developed by Valve Software, has gone gold with a planned retail street date of November 16, 2004. The countdown to the highly anticipated retail street date has begun around the world, as VU Games completes plans to ship localized versions of Half-Life 2 simultaneously in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai and Japanese.

Half-Life 2 has surpassed our expectations in every sense its high-quality graphics, ground-breaking physics and immersive first-person shooter gameplay set a new standard for PC action games, said Bruce Hack, CEO of VU Games. Half-Life 2 will go down as one of the best-selling PC titles, and we are thrilled to deliver this ground-breaking title to the worldwide gaming community this fall.
