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

Half-Life 2 Steam Offers Ready Thursday

It hard for me to decide whether or not to cancel Half Life 2 DVD pre-order as the DVD contain just Half Life 2 and CounterStrike: Source, no Half Life: Source that I want to play deathmatch, I am sure it will have all new deathmatch Source maps.

I felt I have to cancel my pre-order and get Silver package. I am about to order a Pioneer 108 DVD writer so that I can burn all Half Life 2 pre-load images into DVD and restore it later rather than redownload it all over again after format the hard drive.

One things for sure, I wont be buying it untill it's released.
I would like to get it on DVD and have half life source. So I figure that I'll get it which ever way includes it. I own half life, so I think it should be included as an upgrade on the DVD.

I thought that Half-Life: Source was just going to be the single-player portion. I didn't know they were also re-doing the multiplayer part of it.

I'm sorry but I will not spend 50 dollars on steam, it should be 30 dollars, not 50. Since they don't have to do the packaging, and other crap that requires more money.

Wow same price as retail no wonder VU is sueing them, they pass on no savings other taxes to the consumer. In anycase I will get the special edition when the price drops.

You can get 16x DVD writer for $75, a few weeks ago I thought latest 16x DVD writer cost 200 the price of last year but when I look around for the latest price, I was shocked to discovered DVD writers is now cost as little as 45 or 55 for 16x DVD writer. I ordered Pioneer DVD 108 writer for 54.
