Right now I'm leaning toward the Collector's Editoin (DVD), although that Gold package does look pretty tempting, even if it is expensive (and why the hell aren't they including the shirt in that package?). Although do they send you a disc with the Steam options? I mean they send all that other stuff like the hat, stickers, and even the collector's box, isn't it possible that they'll throw the DVD into that? If that's the case then I just *might* get the Gold package instead...although I would rather have a shirt than a hat (the soundtrack sounds cool too...but I can always get that from gamingforce ).

I dont know I think ill get the DVD but if it dose not come with HL1 Source I dont know, then again if you get steam you still cant play it when steam is down, then again you also have a hard copy, then again um yeah Ill get the DVD version unless it comes out a mouth later after steam releases it.

Why would you buy the same game twice?

Because I reformat so much I don't have time to download the game everytime... Unless you get the DVD when you purchase through Steam, but I don't think you do....

I was going to use steam if it was $35 or so but now i going retail and they'd be wrong if they think i'm going to spend more than $55 for retail.

Personally, I'm disgusted at their Steam pricing. I thought that part of the idea behind steam was to also offer slightly better pricing to consumers. My mistake i guess.

Valve are being outrageously greedy if this pricing holds true and why anyone who cares about the prices of games would support Steam is beyond me. Sorry.

I agree. The game should be at least $10 less than retail since your not getting anything tangible. That's not going to stop me from getting it though.

Bah, im not spending $75 on a writer plus $70 for the DVD version of the game

I plan on splitting the price of the game with my brother anyway, and he doesnt have a DVD drive either. Im thinking of getting a 16x DVD reader for a measly $27, but my bro would still like to split the price of the game with me, so we will need the CD version.
