The Orange Box Midnight Madness

This week's Steam marketing message reassures those purchasing The Orange Box over Steam will have access to the shooter bundle at the stroke of Midnight Pacific time on Wednesday:
We'll be unlocking The Orange Box products just after midnight Pacific time next week on the 10th of October. Lots of people have been having a lot of fun with the Team Fortress 2 beta, so we're looking forward to seeing what people think of Portal and Episode Two. The Orange Box will also be available at North American game retailers later on the 10th, for both PC and XBOX 360.

Steam users will be able to play at midnight (PST) on the 9th, and stores will have it when they open their doors on that day. I don't see a problem with it, really.

The Brick & mortar chains are NOT fans of DD. The number one reason why DD games are held back until the retail boxed versions are ready is due to the retail chains crying foul over unfair competition. My post touches on the fact that the B&M chains have been treating PC games like the proverbial redheaded stepchild by burying them at their stores yet they insist on a level playing field for release dates.
