Hmm it does not work in Windows 7 64 bit. Says something about a direct x 8 dll missing when it just installed direct x 8.1. Don't know how many sales they expect to get with this kind of nonsense of no Vista/7 support.

Direct 2 Drive it's All DLC discount is only 100 to choose from. Again I tried to get Minerva's Den for Bioshock 2 for 15% off, it doesn't work. At the site it says 100 to choose from for the 15% off All DLC. That's not All DLC.

Yeah I like Left 4 Dead, but lets face it, most of the special infected don't have any skill or creativity, only cheap locking abilities. Ever play L4D singleplayer? Not that fun just because of the annoying Hunters, Smokers, Jockeys, whatever is impossible to get out of.

Walking Dead would be perfect. Traditional zombies, slow and fast. Survival. Infection. RPG elements. MUUUUCH more variety. Nothing like the L4D series.

I knew this was going to happen. When you go from the video game business to the music tutoring business, you should expect profits to decline drastically. What a bunch of fools. All their fans raised the flag on the forums, too. DOH!

The basic Rock Band game play is still intact and improved. The music tutor/pro guitar and bass is 100% optional. This really has nothing to do with the sales of this game IMO.

Do yourself a favor and actually play the game before making dumb comments.

Wal-mart can price lower than the MSRP because Wal-mart is a retail outlet: they're making a calculated price based on their game supply, perceived game demand, and a desire to undercut their competitors. Valve, meanwhile, is contractually obligated to price according to Vivendi's MSRP so as to not undercut retailers, thus screwing over the retailers, from who 98% of HL2's sales revenue will come from.

There's a difference between a game maker undercutting the people who are selling its games, and a retailer undercutting its competition.

So Walmart can screw other retailers by lowering their price...

I understand that it's a contract, I just don't understand why anyone would agree to it. I should have said that instead.

The point is Valve should be able to lower their price because they don't offer a physical copy. I'm not going to buy it from Steam because I will be able to get the physical copy for less.

No thanks.

I'll be going to Walmart to get my copy for $47 or so. Then I'll download the other stuff when it comes out. I aint payin for updated graphics for crap I don't even play (CS).

I don't understand why Valve can't lower the price but Walmart can? They don't have any material production costs, only server costs. I just can't see the justification of selling for $50 for the bronze when they have so little overhead. They should be allowed to sell for less considering the consumer doens't get the box, CDs and manual.

I wonder if one can backup the .cfg files to a DVD.. Would this allow steam to only download files it needs after putting them in the correct directory? In theory, I would think so, but it depends if they keep all version upgrades available on the server.
