Valve has ATI, a giant corporation, breathing down its neck every minute to finish the game. I think it will be finished on time. ATI is not happy doom 3 runs faster on a card from nvidia that costs 100 dollars cheaper than their fastest.

well 9/1 and 9/30 have never been officially announced right? So 11/1 is a possiblility. Vivendi are the biggest wads when it comes to releasing games. Anyways, Lombardi said "this fall" sept 1st is still summer...fall starts in october? Or is it late sept?

Kinda funny if they do release it 11/1 though, seeing as thq ran away crying with stalker until 2005 because their november release was chased away by Halo 2, which I still dont understand, seeing as pc games and consoles are usually played by different breeds of gamers. Very rarely do you find someone dedicated to both.

::sigh:: 3 more months I suppose.

Taking bets that HL2 will be release at same time of R500 so they can implement P.S 3.0 in the game?



(for the ones with a short sense of humour, yes, it is a sarcastic coment!)

They've already re-quoted what they said at E3 this year. Quite pathetic really...they said the game would be out by summer's end....now they claim they meant-they'll have the game done and handed to vivendi by summer's end, but it wont be on store shelves till autum. Cant wait to see what the next issue/excuse is. So far they used the stolen code as a means for a delay, gabe then pointed the finger at upper managment for a "scheduling conflict" which i'll never buy. Your making the game-you see only 50% is done, and you have 3 months till release...what conflict is there? Now they've put the script online...ugh...ridiculous....to think this is a company with the purpose of making money
