The Neowin Winhec 2004 Blog reports on the presentation of Half-Life 2 at an ATI bash, offering more support for the theory that Summer 2004 is the new September 30:
The demo was very impressive but was not a touch on the demo by Gabe Newell from Valve. This stole the whole keynote to actually see some new footage from Half Life 2. Again we got the whole video which is approximately 3 minutes long and as soon as we find somewhere with firewire we’ll get it on here asap because it’s one to watch! Gabe claimed the X800 is 40% faster than the GeForce 6800 for Half Life 2 and confirmed that we’ll see Half Life 2 this summer.
*cough* only for half-life because they have optimised hl2 for ati cards :P
They must have a time machine then :lol:
ATI SUX. Sorry. :(
I think "ATI SUX" is perhaps something of a blanket statement. ;)
Regardless, the video on the Neowin blog doesn't appear to contain any new footage. Hard to be sure since it's a camcorder pointing at a TV screen, rather than "actual" footage. If it is new footage, than it isn't showing us anything new plot/gameplay wise, but rather just enhancing the graphics on a previously seen scenario (the strider attack).
