Valve Signs With EA to Distribute Future Releases of Half Life 2 Worldwide is the press release announcing that EA will be Valve's new publishing partner at retail. Here's a bit:

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS - News), the world's leading interactive entertainment company and Valve®, the award-winning studio behind the blockbuster franchises Half-Life® and Counter-Strike(TM), today announced that the two companies have entered a multi-year agreement to deliver a collection of Valve games to players worldwide. The first two games to be released under this agreement are Half-Life 2: Game of the Year and Counter-Strike: Source(TM) for PC, both launching this fall. In addition, Half-Life 2 for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, currently in development at Valve and targeted for release in October, will be published and distributed worldwide by EA.

Half-Life2 came with my video card. Last time I actually bought a Valve product was when a some of us pooled money for one of the Half-Life packs with CS, BlueShift etc... and we only did that for the CD keys so we could play Natural Selection online (Never even opened the CD sleeves).

Steam doesn't work properly or efficiently.
Half-Life2 was nice, but the Source engine aint that hot (multiplayer wise).
Counter-Strike was old *years* ago... Source version doesn't fix that.
DOD:Source... meh, gimme Call of Duty2 (Yay, no Steam!).

And WTF happened to the mod scene?

/me cries

Stuff it... I'll go gank some Alliance to make myself feel big.
