Wow. This must be a first in pc games, that one game is sold with that many different package choices. I'll take one Collectors Edition with the G-Man, please!

ATI is getting the Bronze. Though there is one problem I spotted. You pay extra for the CE edition and all you get is HL:s CS:S and HL2 when the gold version on Steam has like 6 more stuff. :(

Why don't we get DoD:Source with the collectors edition?! That is pretty rediculous...I don't want to get the steam version I want the box and a CD, so I don't have to DL it everytime I format or get a new computer! Well this is crappy :|

Steam users don't get the BOX. So don't get your hopes up. I found the ATI voucher thing is getting Bronze at planethalflife.

If the CE offer doesn't give you more than the Steam Gold edition, then that's just a plain ripoff for those that buy the retail versions. We're paying more money for less :S

If it comes down to it, I'll just pay for Half-Life 2 standard and download the Source versions of the games instead. I could find the merchandise on Ebay or something :P

I also wonder, what if you don't have a DVD player... I guess that rules me out already for getting the CE :(

I think its stupid in a way... HL2 Hat? HL2 Stickers and postcards? I find that dumb :/ I wouldnt walk around town with a HL2 hat on, putting stickers on my face and handing out postcards, or really any other use of it.

I'll stick with the "Bare-Necesseties".

Notice the Prima sampler... i.e. the collector's edition doesn't even contain the full Prima game guide. Oh, or DOD:Source for that matter.

Looks pretty horrific to me; so much for a good collector's edition... :|

Hey Valve, how about the "Current Customer" package? HL2, HL1:S, CS:S, and DoD:S all on one DVD. I dont need your back catalog, because I already have that stuff. I have no need for T-shirts, stickers, and other non-game items. I'm also trapped on 56k, so downloading all that as a Steam package would take roughly 4 billion years.

Hehe.. if I would win that contest I'd auction it off :) Heck I'd give it away before I'd visit Valve...
