Half-Life 2's Orange And Black Boxes
We're all anxiously awaiting the arrival of the console version of Half-Life 2, which was recently given the new name, Half-Life 2: Orange (the original title was Half-Life 2: Episode Two). We knew the game would probably include both Portal and Team Fortress 2, but what we didn't know is that consumers will be faced with two choices when the game is released this summer.
You can choose either the Black Box or Orange Box, and each will have slightly different contents. The Black Box is exclusively for the PC and features Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal, and Team Fortress 2, and will retail for $39.99. The Orange Box will be available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, and boasts Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episodes One and Two, Portal, and Team Fortress. This one is slated to have the predictable price tag of $59.99.
So basically, the Black Box is just for those PC gamers who already own Half-Life 2 and the first Episode, while the Orange Box is...well, everyone else's best option, obviously. We can't wait to get our hands one one of the top games of the generation...our guess is that both the Black and Orange will rock.
