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

Well, first off that's how EVERY other availible Steam game is, and secondly I'm pretty sure Valve said something to the effect of "preload Half-life 2, and you'll be able to unlock the game the game as soon as it's released by purchasing it through Steam or entering your CD-key". Since CD-keys are only given with retail products, it can be assumed that they were refering to unlocking the downloaded content by using your retail product's key. Might be best to ask on the official forums or send them an email to make sure, but from what I've heard HL2 is set up like every other Steam game: once you buy it, you can download it from Steam anytime.
