I think its absolutely retarded for people to plunk down any money for a product that doesn't have an official release date. My guess is, Valve will officially annouce ( and I don't mean by i heard from here, or even the steamforums itself) the pricing and methods of order, once they get everything sorted out and the ball actually moving. Till then, they will play it on the safe side and not saying anything.. They are in a legal battle, and I'd imagine their lawyers are ordering them to not say anything at all, so there's absolutely no chance of legal problems.


Remember, there has been no official annoucenment saying CS : S will be available soon. (and don't point me to that mod post) The front page of valve, Vu, and maybe the frontpage of steampowered/Steam interface, with an official press release, is the only official sources. Anything else is rumor or speculation, no matter who they say its from! The internet is great at taking rumor, speculation, missinformation, and spreading it into "fact".


I already think its crazy for paying full in preorders, when the store knows a physical truck is arriving on that day.. Putting down a small amount, like $5 makes sense in this situation though, because you are basically guaranteeing a spot on the next SCHEDULED shipment.

Phoking, that doesn't mean anything. There still hasn't been an official "Gone Gold" announcement, and until there is, I'm not putting a single cent down towards this game.

I think the only thing holding the game back now is this lawsuit mess between Valve and Vivendi.

You have to remember there's a lawsuit going on between Valve and Vivendi, and Vivendi has the right to hold the game for up to 6 months.

This wouldn't be the first time a Valve game was reviewed by all major mags and was no-where to be seen in stores....Counter-Strike : Condition Zero took 4-6 months to be released, after all the reviews and gold announcements...so I'm not holding my breath with HL2. I'm hoping it comes sooner rather than later, but at this point, with both of these companies, you cant trust any announcements they make or rumors that are reported...when it's on a shelf, i'll consider it done and then get excited...not a moment sooner. So like I said....if anyone is thinking of pre-ordering...you have to ask yourself...is CS: Source woth $59.99....cause if the game is held back 6 months...that's all you'll be getting for your money for half a year.

I don't really think they'd push Half-life 2 back until next year, Vivendi knows that the sooner they release it, the more money they'll make. Remember, even though CS:CZ was done 6 months before it was released, they still didn't allow people to pre-load it on Steam until a week before it's was actually out.

Hrm, where do I download my hat?

Gold seems like a lot... $30 for a bunch of collector's stuff, but I'd probably get it if I had the money...
BTW: 11am PST = 1pm EST if did my math correctly. I wish CS:S came with inferno...

EDIT: Does "Valve's back catalog currently available on Steam" mean all of Half-Life and its mods? If so, I'll probably make a new account to be economical...

The gold package sounded very appealing, until now....$90 bucks is fine and all, but I'm not shelling out $90 for a game, still with no release date. I'm sure they charge your credit card seconds after the purchase, and I dont think it's fair to pay for something in full, but not have it to play. I'm not a Counter-strike fan in the least, but finally seeing something using the source engine sounded nice....but now I'll wait it out.

I heard VU games accidentally printed November 26th as EU and November 23rd US as it's release date. I am sticking to this, as MANY people have been saying this and it was accidentally put up by VU games itself, and was in several News sources.
