call your local software store.
software stores receive daily updates on release dates from vendors.

gamestop inc's official date, updated on 7-31-03 is:

get, ready, its really sad...


2-02-04


again, itll be really interesting to see how this pans out with valve/vivendi. if you dont believe me, call a store. its looking like 9-30 was just a date sad.gif


and, of course, being the software retailer i am, ill let you guys know the second it changes smile.gif

2-02 seems insane, yet its highly possible. i expect to see it change again w/in the week, with a more realistic date.

any ideas why V and V would extend the release date so far? i thought the source is done, and most testing on the game is done. and what about the SDK?

i would hella piss if it does delay until next year. hope Valve makes a statment regarding the "possible" delay soon..instead of keeping everyone in the dark guessing. its better that way.

i cant think of any reason for doing it other then it being that far out sad.gif

but im hoping its a big miscommunication.

i dont want to wait until feb, either. only way i get through it is by telling myself parts will be cheaper and hl2 will be better....but, oh, the waiting.

Get ready for this too....they aren't gonna ship HL2 without HL3, and thats gonna take another 5 years time. Minimum. [/sarcasm]
Guys, don't buy into all this delay shit. I believe the release date. And whoever posted the 2004 release date....well they can burn in hell.

You all shouldn't get worked up on this, Valve has yet to confirm this whole thing. If Valve does indeed extend the release date, they must have their reasons for doing so. Plus, wouldn't you all want the game to be as good as possible?

It's not that the game is shipping late. It's that we've all found out about it too soon. dry.gif

Hahaha, isn't that a bit like killing the messenger.

I agree! If Vavle would've just kept their mouths shut until they were ready to ship the game I wouldn't be so worried all the time about when the game will ship. I want this game so bad I can taste it.
