Half-Life Dreamcast Cancelled

Shortly after Half-Life: Blue Shift, the standalone Barney episode originally planned for inclusion in the Dreamcast port of Half-Life (story), reached store shelves, Sierra On-Line announces that this Dreamcast port is now cancelled altogether. Here is the brief statement we received:
Sierra regrets the cancellation of Half-Life for the Dreamcast due to changing market conditions.
And in related news, there is a quick Q&A with Randy Pitchford on Hangar 16, in which the Gearbox Software lead designer reflects on the just-released PC version of Blue Shift (thanks GameSpyDaily).

"But the dreamcast game was literally finished. There were review copies.
Seems like madness to me, although I dont reckon any consoles should be able to ruin halflife with their joypads..."

Yeah, there's a loss on the money spent on development, but there's no point paying out on duplication, shipping etc when in the end they're just going to have pay even more on burying unsold copies in the desert.

and Valve is a one trick pony. Without 3rd party add-ons (read:CS), they would've dropped off the map ages ago.

So, yet another HL port gets cancelled (surprise), now we can all await HL:CS super mega gold special-Ops edition. Ooooh yeah, and the eagerly awaited PowerPlay (hah). Oooh yeah, and TF:2005 coming RSN. Until then, enjoy CS.

Got Milk?

Isn't it time Valve put out a new game?

Milk, is right.

Valve worries far to much about mod's, expansions... Can we get a fresh game now? Hurry Valve before you become vapor.
