On October 19, Xbox 360 and PC users will obtain Valve Software’s latest creation, Orange Box.
However, gamers anticipating the release of the PlayStation 3 version are still very much dark as there still has not been an official word on its release date.
Currently the publisher, Electronic Arts, has no tentative release date for Orange Box on the PS3 as they are probably waiting for a green light from developer Valve Software. It is worth noting that many retailers are pointing at a November 16 or November 23 date but unfortunately, that may not be the case.
This may not come as a surprise to many who have been following the development of the game, as it was formerly revealed that the PS3 version would indeed come after the PC/Xbox 360 versions. However, with a solid date yet to be revealed, PS3 owners could possibly be forced to wait until early 2008 to get their hands on the compilation
The Orange box includes Half-Life 2, HL2: Episode One and Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2.
Portal is an intriguing game where players take the role of scientist Gordon Freeman. The game is based in the world of Half-Life 2 where characters and objects feature a robust physics engine combined with impressive AI.
The console versions of the game will come equipped with the full length Half-Life 2 game as well as HL2: Episode One and Episode Two add-on levels and the Portal puzzle game and Team Fortress 2.
