Default Re: hl2 delayed to 11/1

Delays, Delays, who cares, other games are coming out. you can argue that CS is still the most played online MP. I think that's because 13-17 yr olds have nothing to do and is stuck with FX5200 and MX4000. Let's hope HL2 won't end up like Tiberian Sun again. (Highly anticipated, delayed numerous times and SUCKED).

I pre-ordered Half-Life 2 when I pre-ordered Doom3. GameStop had the release date listed at 11/01 when I bought it and it's still listed as 11/01.

It's all good. It'll be done soon.

I'm trying to tell yall don't believe retailers release dates lol

They get NO inside info, especially from self funded developers like valve. Hell vivendi their pub doesn't get any info. The only time the publisher of a self funded developer gets a release date is when they get the gold master CD. Until than they know nothing. Thats why Doom3's date was pushed back month by month for over a year, until the pub got their gold master. Than the release dates were accurate.

A guy at hardocp shows an e-mail he got from Walmart saying his preorder for the collector's edition has been changed to 11/01. Amazon apparently is showing nov as well.

Also, one guy noted that BB shows sept on the order but when you click estimated delivery time it shows nov. EB and some others still show sept.

With Valve saying the bug fixes have been going faster than anticipated, I'd expect it earlier than that (nov) though. The nov date is probably just overly cautious.
