Half Life 2 : Black Box gets canceled

You'll have to get the orange one


According to IGN, Valve decided to cancel its Half Life 2 Black Box collection. This product would contain three new games coming from Valve scheduled for this autmn, Half Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and Portal. We already wrote some information about this black box that is shipped with new Radeon HD 2900XT cards and you can find a link for the trailer of here.

There is a big chance that the black box voucher that is sold with HD 2900 XT, will turn orange. By the way the Orange Box adds the original Half Life 2 and Half Life 2: Episode One to the collection.

"The Black Box has been canceled," said Doug Lombardi, Valve's director of marketing. "We're going to have one package, The Orange Box, available on the PC (US$49.99) as well as the 360 and PS3 (US$ 59.99). In addition to the three new products -- Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Half-Life: Episode Two -- The Orange Box will also contain the full version of Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One. Those who purchase the PC version of The Orange Box will get three separate Steam product codes: One for the three new games, one for HL2, and one for Episode One.

This way a PC Orange Box owner can give away their Half-Life 2 or Episode One unused Steam product codes if they don't need a copy of those games. We are excited to deliver the highest value of new gaming content ever offered in one box."

We will just have to wait and see how DAAMIT will deal with this black/orange situation.
