Default Re: Who will buy Half Life 2 on Steam or DVD?

Actually, I think that even if you only have the HL2 cd-key from a retail package that you can still download all of the game files from Steam. It's your CD-key that determines what products you have access to, if you get the Collector's Edition then you should be able to download HL2, HL1:S, CS:S, etc. all from within Steam without even touching the disc. So if you want the extras that the DVD version offers, just pre-load HL2 onto your computer, buy the collector's edition when it's released, enter your CD-key, and the game is completely installed on your computer and ready to be played.
