Hmm gamespot claims its gone gold but no annoucement......

Note that this is in the RUMOR CONTROL section, meaning it's not official, it's just speculation based on (usually believable) evidence. I'd believe it, though they're probably not officially saying it for some reason (hmm, maybe they're waiting to make the announcement until November 8th )

I haven't seen the shipping date change on the major shopping sites (EB, Gamestop) in a couple weeks now. They still have it listed as Nov. 1, which would be about right if it went gold today.

Rumour Control? Nah, we need to install Gamespot spy at Valve and VU so that will be easy to know when we hear from the spy to confirm when Half Life 2 goes gold!
