    That is very sweet news for people who don't have a high end gaming PC, like me. I am definitely looking forward to this. :)

    I expect it'll run quite well however with reduced graphic quality as a sideeffect of the xbox inferior hardarw and data sotrage/processing capacity

    wow.... didn't think Valve would release it for something other than PC. doesn't seem like it'd be the best way to play the game. can't imagine it looking quite as good. and i like how they always use the "for people who don't have a high end PC" excuse. HL2 don't need that high end of a PC. and what if you have a VERY low end PC and don't have an xbox? that means they'd either have to upgrade their computer, or pay $200+ for an xbox and the game.....

    there is more money in consol games. I have a feeling this has something to do with it. Allthough valve made a sh*t load of money on the pc version of halflife 2 , especially since half life 2 was basically un pirated for the most part. STEAM evil STEAM. hehe

    edit: i really need to start reading what i type more. That made no sense before hehe.

    yeah..... guess that's something they didn't count on. xbox seems like it has the easiest games to copy for a console. all you really seem to need is a DVD burner and a mod chip. and i think the money is the same between console and PC games..... just that FPS's don't seem as popular on console's.

    Probably like Doom3, runs well, but looks crap compared to it's PC counter-part. The Xbox may well be the most powerful console out there, hardly comparative to a beefy PC with a 6800/X850 under the hood though :)

    Now that would amuse me :D

    yeah..... that's ONE good FPS on a current generation console, which to me isn't that great, but i'm stopping what more i say on that part there....... and it's not like you can get it for PC (yet), so you have no choice but to play it on Xbox. what were the better FPS's of earlier generations? Goldeneye, Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, just to name a few. hmm...... speaking of which..... i haven't heard any news about the Perfect Dark: Source mod in a while..... wonder how that's movin along.

    Perfect Dark 0 should hopefully be out on Xenon, but Rare take a decade to make a single game...
