Half-Life 2 Console Plans

A report on Computer and Video Games (thanks Frans), showing contempt for other site's speculative posts on the topic, gets confirmation from Valve that the Xbox is the only console system currently targeted for a port of Half-Life 2, quoting Doug Lombardi as saying: "At this point, there are no plans to publish a version [of Half-Life 2] for either of Sony or Nintendo's current systems." They then proceed to speculate on the likelihood of PS3 and GameCube 2 versions of the game, based on Doug's comment that: "Valve is obviously interested in hearing more about their [Sony and Nintendo] next-generation plans and discuss the possibilities of doing something with them."

30. Half-Life 2 Console Plans Sep 30, 2003, 04:52 Hump
 
Look, I'm an ardent fan of all three consoles, but the Cube doesn't have the power to push any incarnation of Half-Life 2.

I'm not so sure. The 'cube uses that ATi Flipper chip thing thats supposed to be quite powerful. Also, the Source engine is supposed to be very scaleable and will be able to run on a 700 mhz CPU. The Cube, being a dedicated gaming rig can get away with less as it doesn't have the added burden of an OS and everything that comes along with it. I beleive it also carries 128mb of RAM which is more than the Xbox. It'd be interesting to hear from a developer on the subject anyhow...

One thing I'm sure everyone can agree on, theres no way in hell it'll run on a PS2
