Half-Life 2 Release Dates?

Half-Life 2 set for 26th November in Europe on Eurogamer.net admits that Valve's shooter sequel has yet to achieve gold status before mongering a rumor they've come across that a November 26 European release date is to be announced soon and that the North American release for the game will be November 23. They cite "retail sources in the UK" for this information, though there's no indication where this originated beyond that. They contacted VU Games about this and learned: "There is a good chance Half-Life 2 will make it before this Christmas. We're targeting the holiday season." They also have word from Valve's Doug Lombardi saying "Unfortunately, I do not have a release date from VUG right now," going on to express their own confidence this was just a smokescreen, saying Doug was "no doubt under orders to wait until it's 'officially' announced." They also have word that online reviewers will not get pre-release versions of the game.

They actually HAD a singleplayer only package; and everyone bitched at them say it's just another moneymaking scheme and ways to trick morons into having to pay extra for the full version.. Then they had to get rid of the SP only package when Sierra died. Funny how people are bitching about THAT too.

EDIT: And did you really have to spam that into this thread after double-posting it into the other Source thread that's STILL on the popular threads list? Yeesh..

Sincerely,

I don't know much about anything but dolls and dresses so I wanted to know what other people thought about it.

Anyway, better get back to the kitchen and the sewing.

No wonder you're single, Jeremy.
