Black Box in a Pine Box on IGN reports on the unceremonious demise of the Black Box SKU for Half-Life 2: Episode Two, leaving the Orange Box the only edition of the upcoming shooter follow-up slated for retail. The Orange box will include the full versions of Half-Life 2 and Episode One as well as the planned content of Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2, while the Black Box was to be ten dollars cheaper with only the new content for those who already own the previously released stuff. No explanation is offered for the change, though they do quote Valve's Doug Lombardi as saying Orange Box owners will be free to gift a friend with the unused Steam codes for games in the bundle that they already own.
