Half Life 2 on sale in US on November 23rd?

By Derek Sooman on October 4, 2004, 11:50 AM
Hmm... now, haven't we all heard this one before? Certainly we have. After disappointment after disappointment, I am not sure I believe anything to do with HL2 until I actually see the boxes on the shelves of stores. However, according to Tomshardware, the release date for HL2 has been set for November. Valve have apparently released their code to VU, and according to a recent report, HL2 will be on sale in the US on November 23rd of this year. Yeah, sure. I will believe it when I have that rocket launcher in my "hands".

WoW! That's what I get for being a good student and not checking this site as often as I should... I wonder what this means for the Vivendi/VUG vs Valve case.... Will we see a boxed version one of these days, or have Valve decided to ****** Vivendi?(Sorry if this has been covered in another thread, but I'm reading back to front...)
