The Half-Life 2 Game release is starting to become the most weirdest in history.

Now Half-Life 2 fans can buy the Game, but will not get it. And on top of that they will not even know when they get it. Pre-Order is normal, but buying something that nobody knows when it is going to ship is a bit much. Especially because the reason is a legal battle between Valve and the game publisher Vivendi Universal.

To make the wait shorter Valve gives away Counter-Strike™: Source™, when buying one of the three Half-Life 2 packages. Additionally every 5,000 buyer of the Gold Package gets a trip to the Valve Head-Quarters. The Half-Life 2 Bronze package sells for $49.95. The Silver Package for $59.95 and the Gold for $89.95. See below what the three Half-Life 2 packages contain. More details on Steam.
