You have to remember there's a lawsuit going on between Valve and Vivendi, and Vivendi has the right to hold the game for up to 6 months.
This wouldn't be the first time a Valve game was reviewed by all major mags and was no-where to be seen in stores....Counter-Strike : Condition Zero took 4-6 months to be released, after all the reviews and gold announcements...so I'm not holding my breath with HL2. I'm hoping it comes sooner rather than later, but at this point, with both of these companies, you cant trust any announcements they make or rumors that are reported...when it's on a shelf, i'll consider it done and then get excited...not a moment sooner. So like I said....if anyone is thinking of pre-ordering...you have to ask yourself...is CS: Source woth $59.99....cause if the game is held back 6 months...that's all you'll be getting for your money for half a year.
