Ships Ahoy - Half-Life 2: The Orange Box

Valve announces that The Orange Box is now available, offering Half-Life 2, its first two episodic follow-ups, Team Fortress 2, and Portal:

October 10, 2007 - Valve®, a leading entertainment and technology studio, is pleased to announce the availability of The Orange Box for PC on Steam (www.steamgames.com).

The Orange Box features three top-rated new games by Valve: Half-Life® 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress® 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

To bring gamers up to date with the Half-Life 2 universe, The Orange Box also includes Half-Life 2, the best-selling and highest-rated action game series of all time, and the episodic debut Half-Life® 2: Episode One-together, more than 30 hours of award-winning gameplay. Purchasers of the PC version of The Orange Box who already own Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One can conveniently "gift" them to a friend from within Steam.

The Orange Box is now shipping to retailers and will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.95 on the PC and $59.95 on the Xbox® 360 console system. Contact your local stores for details.

Yeah.. $37.95 *IF* they have it in stock. I've had no luck here in the Boston area so far, and am not going to hold my breath. Another option is to walk into Best Buy and have them pricematch the Circuit City ad price, but that's another potential major pain in the ass.
