Eh, most of these EBgames/Gamespot dates are just made up anyway, so I wouldn't put any faith in them. They're also the ones who at one time listed Doom 3, Halo 2, and Fable as coming out late-2003 (and they gave exact dates, they just kept pushing them back whenever the date was coming up).

But I think the game is fairly close to release. Too much of the content seems complete for them to push it TOO much farther back (though November is certainly a posibility), hell they have the whole script for the game in, and I'm sure they started the CS:Source beta for a reason. My guess is September 15th, 2004...though like the other dates given for the game that could be pushed back

I wouldn't take to much faith in ebgames or any other retailers release dates. They are all just projected guesses. They don't get any inside info from developers.

Apparently has CS: Source and HL: Source included among other things. Walmart has it on sale for $59.99 which aint much more than the standard edition.

edit: best buy, amazon, gamestop all now say 11/1
