While speaking at Electronic Arts' annual summer press event, Valve Software's Gabe Newell announced that Half-Life 2 will definitely arrive for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Better yet, the ports, which are scheduled to ship simultaneously with Half-Life 2: Episode Two for the PC, will include official Half-Life 2 content available at that point, including Episode Two.
While Newell didn't announce every bit of what will be on the disc, the PS3 and X360 versions of Half-Life 2 will include adjunct titles like Half-Life 2: Episode One and the just-reconfirmed Team Fortress 2. Counter-Strike: Source is also a possibility.
and how old is this PC game, quit beating a dead horse.
I dont give a donkeys balls how old it is.
If its coming to console, w00t !
when the material is this freakin' brilliant. Any fan of FPS on the PC knows how important this game is and was. This game (and the original Half Life before it) is like Halo to the minions on Xbox that never really played a FPS before they bought an Xbox. Add that to the fact that in order to run the game at full specs when it came out you had to have a beast of a PC (although, admittedly, it ran great scaled back. Valve knows how to code) and everyone needs to play this game. Yes, it was on the Xbox, but let's just forget that for the moment. No way is Half Life 2 a dead horse when Valve has just released Episode One and Episode Two is on the way.
It would be a great game even if it is a port from the pc/xbox. However, lets not get too hasty and port Counter Strike as well. CS was a disaster on the old xbox and CSS on the 360 will be garbage as well unless it will support keyboard and mouse.
Playing CSS with a controller is pathetic, any other dumb shooter like doom/prey is fine but not this game.
Yeah Man, I know CSS online is the shizz!
Its just one of those games that requires you to "aim" and not just point the xhair towards your opponent and miraculously you shoot him even though you are in a middle of a jump.
Thats why controlers are good for frantic shooters without recoil etc...
