Orange and Black Boxes – Postponed

Kirjoittanut: Livegamers


EA and Valve announced some information on the upcoming Half-Life 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2 packages for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The watchamacallsit-packages have suffered long without a single name and EA with Valve have at long last issued some painkillers. The console package, including Half-Life 2, Episode I & II, Portal, and Team Fortress 2, has been christened the Orange Box. The PC pack is called the Black Box.
According to EA, the boxes have lost the Half-Life moniker, since they are a compilation of different games. From a sales point of view this decision seems questionable. Furthermore, it seems that the boxes have been pushed back to a Fall 2007 release, at which time they will most likely compete with some minor games, such as Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto 4, and Metal Gear Solid 4.
