For those too lazy to click:

Quote:
There won't be any midnight sales for Half-Life 2 when we change from 15th to 16th november, with the release coming up in less than 2 weeks.

Valve and Vivendi has planned the release that much that it'll be a an almost simoultanous release around the globe, because the game is not allowed to be released before 16th november, 9:00AM GMT+1 time.

The reason for this is probably the addition of Steam, and Vivendi probably won't want people over the world, playing the game over Steam, when it's not even out in retail in half of it.

Instead we will introduce the "Mornin'-sales", so are you one of the lucky to meet up in the store at 9:00AM GMT+1 then you can get your copy, you can also reserve it.

Source: Vivendi
Nice so it looks like I'll be hitting the sack early that night to wake up & start playing around 3AM until time for work

w00t! I wish that Steam would automatically unlock my copy when the time hits since I'll be in the bed. Guess I'll have to set my alarm clock for early . . . dang.

Kinda doubt it man. I bet you have to be there to double-click "Half Life 2" in the "My Games" box. Oh well, I think that it will unlock at 5AM my time so no sweat.
