I'll be buying the collectors edition. I'm not wasting over £70.00 just for the gold version. It's a complete rip-off and Valve should be ashamed.

 

I also see why they delayed the game so many times, so they could pump all of this extra crap into the packages. If they would of not bothered with Counter Strike Source, Half Life 1 Source and the DoD source this would of been released months ago. They're just doing this to make more money. I don't see how they could be so greedy.

Same here, except, I might get the collectors edition if it goes down to $30 or $40, since I want it on a DVD. 6 CD's is too much.

:(

Lol, I'm shocked, I thought people were used to games costing around forty to fifty dollars by now.

 

You have to expect that this, out of all games, will cost more, just because of the fact that it is one of the, if not the best game of all time.

Yah, DVD drive is really cool (I have a DVD reading, CD reading, CD burning - combo drive --- Very cool)

CS-Source was meant to be played online, and the only way to play it online is through Steam, which is a must-download now. I guess i would be easier for it to be included, but it doesn't take too long to download off of Steam anyway........wait, that the hell am I saying, Steam is pure sh** :eek:

dude, you don't read PCgamer much, do you? If they gave a 100% to a game,

God would come down from heaven himself and congradulate the game creators, they are that tough.

Ditto, try out Game Informer (only $10 for 10 issues at ur local Game Stop), they have a really good sense of humor... such as they make up games that are really funny (Complete with PSed cover for it)
