Wondering if really the hacker has been caught or only the ones who spread the theft on the net.

Even more interesting than the arrests is this article (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/06/11/halflife_2_arrests/) posted at "the register":

Ironically, the announcements of the arrests comes a week after it emerged that the game might not be finished this year after all. Half-Life 2's does not appear on Vivendi Universal's mid-year release timetable - a list that includes a number of other titles earmarked for the company's Christmas line-up.

If this is true than the sequel to DNF has arrived :)

LOL! The people who bought 9800 XT's will have upgraded by the time they redeem their voucher.

My God, this whole situation is practically a working definition of the word "fiasco". :(

Its straight out of the plot book of a "Carry On" film only with less semi nudity.

Eh... think about all the time piloux spent on this (http://members.home.nl/gis/) ;)
It's a tragedy.
By the time HL2 is out (if it'll ever be at all) he'll have to completely redo all the work, because, ya know, by that time we'll probably have quad cpus systems w/ 1 Tera of RAM and 1 PetaB of disk, the mobo will be a DTX standard one, we'll have some nice 99800 nv gpus and M800 ati's ones, and the whole system will come with it's lil nuclear plant to power it ;) :D

Seriously, it's a real pity. From the screenshots it looks (looked ?) like a beautiful game/engine....

Btw, I wonder if Newell had to give back to Ati all those money he received for that PR stunt last year ;) :angel2: :D

or by the time it comes out it won't even run on a 9800 XT.

I'd be pissed if I had bought one and was waiting for the game.

*Sigh*

When it does come out, it's going to be good... but this is just ridiculous. Not even coming out this year? At E3 they were talking about how they were "content complete," and entering final polishing.

:lame:
