Another Half-Life 2 Gold Rumor

Rumor Control: Half-Life 2 gold (for real) and the PStwo ships early on GameSpot has the latest results from their Magic 8-Ball, as another site rushes to announce that Half-Life 2 is gold. This time the report is based on an "informed source." If the game is indeed gold, the plan is apparently to trickle the news out via word of mouth.

On a bright side, they are killing hype as we know it.

maybe they are not going to announce gold. maybe, if we're lucky, we'll all just turn on steam one day and we can play it! without knowing it went gold and then chomping at the bit for 2 weeks. heh, here's hoping that's their plan

If it is true, an official announcement from Valve would be appropriate. Dont let people wonder, assume, denounce it as fake, mess their pants etc in the meantime. At least get the professionalism part right.

What's this Half-Life 2 everyone is raving about? I guess this must have slipped under my radar. So this is a sequel, huh? Was the first one any good?

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

Unfortunately, you are probably wrong. The game will sell very well and some idiot will say, "It sold well because of all the extended hype!"

But then all the trolls come in here babbling about how Valve needs to shut up.

I'm surprised they aren't here now, because, as we all know, Gamespot, Slashdot and IGN are all on Valve's payroll.

It seems to be a common misunderstanding that youll get HL2 on Steam when it goes gold. It wont come on steam until its in the stores, so dont get too excited just yet

i did't misunderstand what i meant is that maybe they don't announce gold and it ships without anyone announcing gold then it pops up in stores and on steam! wewt%) tho, is it possible that could happen?

No, they're not. Valve is not making these announcements. The "gone gold" rumors are all coming from an "unnamed source," and I wouldn't be surprised if everyone was getting their news from just one guy. The last announcement from Valve was the pricing plans for the Steam packages, and that only came about when Gabe emailed an HL2 fansite--no official press release was made. They sure as heck aren't advertising the preloads--the websites are.

Funny. It's 9:50am PST here in Los Angeles, and it's the same in Seattle. If we haven't heard anything, and HL2 has indeed gone gold, its because everyone at Valve is suffering from hangovers and looking for their pants.

Yeah, well I'll let them have their pants back as soon as they either confirm or deny these rumours

Agreed. Also, there's always eBay. Regrettably, someone somewhere would purchase "the pants Gabe Newell had on when HL2 went gold!" ;p

I think I saw an article about this in one of my gaming mags, I didn't even realize there was a first one. Bah, who cares, I'm gonna keep watching for the DNF and Prey gold announcements.

too much fun, but damn I hope this "rumor" is true
