    They announced that they would release Half Life 2 in November about a few months ago.

    Umm... no. The company announced a week ago that they were still on schedule for the end of September.

    Gamestop still lists it as 9/30:

    Oddly it's missing from the list on PC Game Review:

    Games Underground still lists it as 9/30:

    Review Outpost Lists it as 10/30:

    Egghead also says 10/30:

    I'd keep an eye on this forum:

    Was talking to my mate from nvidia last night.
    He previously insisted that Detonator 50 would be out before HL2 (to solve issues that have arisen), he still claims that. But has now also told me the drivers will be out in the fall.

    He was thinking nov/dec.

    but no one knows.
    Tho steam is starting to gear up for some radical changes.

    well the price has not been disclosed.
    it may actually be cheaper.
    As no cash goes to the publishers... or any material possession (ie case, manual, disk)
