EA To Release New Orange Box Games As Separate PC Titles

During Electronic Arts' financial conference call today, company execs stated that they plan to release all of the new games in Valve's Orange Box collection (Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2 and Portal) as separate retail games for the PC. The three games will ship to stores for the PC sometime before the end of March; no prices for the games were announced. Of course, Steam owners can already pay and download those three games as separate products.

It is quite pointless, in my opinion.

antoinetm4921d ago

its basic economics and its the best decision. they should have done that since the beginning.

If the price is right i ll probably get ep1 & ep2.
i already played HL2 and im not interested in teamFort & portal.

You should really give portal a try - it is widely regarded as one of the best, if not one of the shortest, titles of the year.

antoinetm4921d ago

umm maybe but i until it comes at a *very* reasonable price considering its shortness then i might :)

(PSN download or smthg)

the way i see it, it has no replay value... since u know how to solve it.

Not really sure how this will boost sales, other than taking up more shelf space and increasing visibility, but oh well.

bootsielon4921d ago

I thought they were four. Unless one of those counts as an expansion...

jackdoe4921d ago

HL2 and HL2 Ep1 already have retail boxes. The other three games don't.

jackdoe4921d ago

No point in buying them separately for $20 a pop. Even if you already have some of the games in the OB, you can just give them to a friend as a gift.

felman874921d ago

should've done this back in september, would've just bought portal

iNcRiMiNaTi4921d ago

i wouldnt have spent $20 on it even though i thought it was the best one in the pack

had i known they were planning on this i would have waited. i only wanted portal, half life's not that great.
