    the xt is the last of it's production model............the next rendition is going to be called loki, a nv 40 competitor............so, they need to get this one last blast of cards outta here, knowing they are goin' to step it up............so, that the underlying reason for the addition of hl2, to sweeten the pot.........not me, i'm waitin' for nv40 or loki, just in time for the dual channel version of 64 to arrive, hyperspace awaits :thumb:

    Come to think of it - I think I said the same thing 12 months ago, but I think the following 12 months will be even better.

    Half-Life 2 SKU Confusion

    In an attempt to alleviate my frustration and confusion regarding all this SKU hoopla coming out of Valve, I took it upon myself to contact Gabe and ***** him out (which we all know I do a lot). Well, I must say - I have been corrected. I can't claim that I still like the idea entirely, but it makes a lot more sense.
    I can't believe you guys are actually considering doing what you are doing regarding the multiple SKUs for HL2. This is a most terrible idea that I can only guess was developed out of greed. The main problem I see with this is the fact that many people will not realize they are buying a castrated version of the game and subsequently will feel duped and pissed because they thought they were buying a game that could be played on the internet and with mods. Why on earth are you making different versions of the game?

    Stop this idea in its tracks please. This is one of the lamest ideas out of Valve I have ever seen. I have lost a lot of respect for you guys because of this. I may even just decide to boycott the game myself.

    His Response
    Well, there's the regular priced version that has the regular features of MODs and multiplayer.

    Then there's the less expensive version without those.

    I'm missing the greed part.

    For people who buy the less expensive version, they can always upgrade to MOD and multiplayer using Steam. The price difference will be about the difference there was between the two versions.

    The theory is that it helps out retailers like Walmart who have very broad reach into customer bases that don't care about multiplayer and who are very price conscious. Rather than having to wait a year for the product price to come down, there's a special version for them on day one.

    My Response
    Hmmmm, I was under the impression that after buying the single player version that the user would be effectively hosed if they wanted the multiplayer/MOD functionality. I have been corrected. I figured they would have to buy the game all over again to get the missing functionality. If what you say is true, and I have to believe you since you are the head honcho there, then I have a lot less big of a problem with this. My only concern is: Will the general public (which isn't that bright) know that they are buying a stripped down version? Will this fact be displayed and easy to see on the box?

    Do you see where I was getting the greed comment from now? I hope so. I still have to say, I don't like the idea personally, but maybe thats because I can afford to buy a 50 dollar game. Whats the price difference going to be? 10 bucks? 20 bucks?
    His argument is sound, and I guess it's not really greed to begin with. I just don't like confusing the customer. Nvidia has been doing this with their MX line for a long time. I don't like it when consumers buy something thinking they are getting the full kit-and-kaboodle when they aren't.

    out of this thing...........we'll see, if all is true................believe me weta........leave the greed part in, for sure, that's true, just not in the context you thought they were going to gouge people, but just not missing any faction of the population to sell to...............so, whatever you can afford, they have a game for you, hehe :laugh:

    so if you buy the cheaper SP verion and then upgrade to the Mod/MP version though steam... what happens when you need to reinstall the game for whatever reason? Do you get shafted since you would have to re-download the rest of the game again, possibly paying for it if you can't 'proove' you already payed for it once? Personally, I would like to know how they are going to handle that before i even consider buying the striped down version. I only plan to buy the full version when the price drops a little, but I'd still like to know...
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
