Over on Half-Life News they've got some quotes from the guy who allegedly stole Half-Life 2 & its source code from Valve Software.
[color=royalblue]"To all those saying HL2 was delayed because of the hacking action, ill just remind you that what was leaked is what Valve has, nothing more & nothing less, so its pretty good to understand it wasnt finished yet. Also I'd like to point out the E3 [demo] was 1 big fake by Valve. Ever tried to kill that soldier in physicstown? Notice the door will still get kicked? No scripted sequences?
To everyone saying this is no Beta: I'd like to point out that THIS is what you wanted Valve to release on 9/30/03, theres no such thing as a much better release in Valves network!"
To Valve: I suggest you stop lying to your customers about how much was stolen/compromised, or I'll have to release everything just to prove my point. & you know what you got, as I do."[/color]
Would you like to know more? Planet Half-Life has a story up also which would seem to indicate that they did get a lot more code than originally claimed.
