Half-Life 2: Delay? Maybe, Playable? Yes

New delay for Half-Life sequel on BBC News (thanks Eraserhead) has a quote from Christophe Ramboz of Vivendi Universal Games on the Half-Life 2 source code theft that takes a completely different direction than the talk of four month delays found in a different article (story), as they have him saying: "Vivendi Universal Games is only the distributor of the product, which is produced by the US studio Valve and so it will up to them to make an announcement." Meanwhile, Thieves steal playable version of Half-Life 2 on CNN Money contradicts reports that downplay the amount of code stolen, choosing to reveal that the Source source thieves "also stole enough game maps and other components to put together a playable build of the game. Today, five days after the first leak, they have released that build."

yeah, the way I understand it, that's the problem. people can make new and "better" ways to cheat since they know the secrets that Valve was doing to keep the cheating out.

as far as why only partial theft results in a delay, I would think it's all in what part was stolen, and I dont think Valve will want to tell us all exactly what part was stolen, otherwise you're telling the pricks that stole it exactly what they got.

although saying I completely understand how source code works would be very wrong, so, I also may be full of it.
