Temporarily Out of Steam

Valve sends word that their Steam Pipe is running at capacity, and for the moment, admission to the new Counter-Strike beta has been suspended:

Steam Beta 2.0 Admission Suspended

The Counter-Strike and Team Fortress communities have maxed out the Steam 2.0 beta servers, resulting in the temporarily suspension of admission to the beta as more content servers are put online. The current Steam content servers offer over 500 megabits of bandwidth, all of which the community is consuming right now.

Anyone interested in hosting a Steam content server should email biz@steampowered.com. (Content server requirements can be found at www.steampowered.com.)

"(whos gonna pay full price for something without a box and manual). You will Garry, and so will everyone else, if that product is Counter-Strike 2 or something comparable. You'll gladly shell out $50 or $60 just like everyone else"

Well lets see, highspeed internet getting faster and cheaper, and file distribution systems getting better all the time...
Lots of people ALREADY get games over the internet with NO box and NO cd. But the diffrence is that they dont pay ANY money. How would a system that charged $60 and was probably slower compare to this?
