Orange Box Nears

Opening The Valve: The Gabe Newell Interview on GamesInformer talks with the Valve honcho about the upcoming Orange Box Half-Life 2 release, discussing the reason for the demise of the Black Box, plans for Steam packages, mobile games, console games, and a laugh over the idea they could pin down an Episode Three release date this far in advance. The conversation also confirms they are on track to ship on October 9, with Gabe offering a brief "yup" to the question about whether all three games (Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal) are "pretty much finished."

Any other developer/publisher wouldn't have to "give" users a way to give the unwanted bundled games as gifts since with almost all other games, the buyer can simply do it himself by handing out the media and CD key (if necessary) for it.
But the whole point is that no publisher would produce a whole pile of extra disks and CD keys just for people to give away... it is because of Steam that Valve is able to "give away" the games. I think the actual idea of giving away games to other people is pretty shit but that's Valve's call.
