HL2 is quoted as the "The best game of all time" and "The best game ever made" by PC Gamer. Who couldn't agree more than me and the millions of gamers that have joined the Steam Community! :D The Orange Box comes in three flavors: PC, PS3 & XBOX 360 (Live!). It includes both HL2's Episode 1 & 2 and the new addition to the Valve collection, 'Portal', which looks like gaming-physics heaven! The highly anticipated multi-player, Team Fortress 2 will also be unveiled. EA has partnered with Valve to market and franchise "The Black Box" & "The Orange Box" across all platforms.
"In less than 18 months, we've shipped 10 new products to retail outlets with EA Partners," said Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve. "The Black Box and The Orange Box represent a new approach to publishing multiple products, on multiple platforms and we know through our experience that no organization in the industry is better equipped to successfully launch new product types on multiple platforms than EA Partners." "Valve is one of the world's premiere independent developers and EA Partners is thrilled to help them bring the groundbreaking action games in The Orange Box and The Black Box to market as their publishing partner," said David DeMartini, vice president and general manager of EA Partners. - Kotaku.
