C-S: Source Next Week

Half-Life Fallout has word from Gabe Newell on Steam packages for Half-Life 2, which will be made available for purchase next week, allowing another chance for gamers to pre-purchase the still not-gold game, in spite of recent doubts cast upon its release date (story). Each of the three game bundles includes Counter-Strike: Source, and word is the full final version of the revamped version of the military shooter mod that comprises Half-Life 2 multiplayer play will be made available on Steam at the time the bundles can be purchased. Here's the summary of the various retail and Steam editions of Half-Life 2:

Can't wait to see how they ship a hat and stickers via Steam. %)

As for the ATI voucher question...I imagine that it will be the bronze edition. Upgrading it to another edition might be a good public relations move - but it wouldn't really help the 'bottom line.'

Edit: Sorry for reposting the hat/stickers/steam "joke." I didn't review the ENTIRE thread prior to posting.
