Are you kidding me? Even more bang for the buck, apparently (according to Ars Technica)-

The other thing that jumps out at me is the fact that they are trying to release this at the same time they release the PS3 and 360 versions. These will be full-priced retail games that will include Half-Life 2, Episodes 1 and 2, Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike Source

^^ There we go. If that materializes with no cuts or holdbacks compared to the PC game, I'm making the purchase. No questions needed.

God I hope it comes with CS, but I think that's a mistake. Everyone's been asking for it, and if someone even mentioned it you'd see it on all the blogs. I'm throwing the bullshit flag, and I hope I'm wrong.

It looks like they added some lighting and shader tricks to EP 2 to keep up with next-gen graphics.

Everyone in the clan should buy this to support a game developer who: 1) Makes good on promises (besides release dates) 2) Isn't trying to rip our souls out through our wallets 3) Makes damn good games

I totally agree with Blaze there, they are basically throwing it at your face. Too bad it doesn't come with Garry's Mod. That's fun as hell.

I agree, Garrys Mod is fun as hell. I enjoy that far more than Half Life 2.

I'm going to get this, but not for the 360. I'm used to playing the game for the PC so I may just stick with that. We'll see what happens...

So it looks like they want to enable Vista/360 multiplayer for Team Fortress 2. I think that would be pretty cool.

Team Fortress 2: Valve Wants PC-Xbox 360 Interplay
By: C?sar A. Berardini - "Cesar"

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box (Xbox 360)

In an interview with Game Informer, Valve's Robin Walker, the co-creator of the original Team Fortress, has revealed they would like to enable Vista-Xbox 360 cross platform multiplayer for Team Fortress 2 and they are simply waiting for Microsoft to provide the API used in Shadowrun.

"We?d love to have the Xbox and PC play together, and technically, from our side, there?s no technical reason why you can?t?the engine is the same, the network is the same." Walker explained. "It really comes down to knowing Microsoft has announced that Shadowrun is going to do that, but they haven?t let anyone outside of Microsoft, I mean we don?t have an API or anything."

Team Fortress 2, which is included in the mega Half-Life 2 combo titled "The Orange Box," is an all-new version of Team Fortress, the legendary title that spawned team based multiplayer action games.

Other developers have expressed interest in enabling Vista-Xbox 360 cross platform multiplayer; such is the case of Epic Games and Unreal Tournament 3. Epic also said they are waiting for Shadowrun to launch and see how the technology works.
