      I'll probably pre purchase via Steam as well. It would be nice if there was some bonus for pre-ordering.

        Yeah, I decided to preorder this one retail to avoid the whole Day1 download rush. I'm glad they are moving forward, looks like they won't fall prey to release slippage.

        The TF2 videos are absolutely hilarious, and the tongue in cheek direction they decided to go in looks like a blast.

          I spoke too soon. There are some benefits to pre-purchasing.

            Damn. I click on the Pre-Purchase Now button and I get an error message "Specified subscription is invalid." That's odd. I just bought BioShock recently.

                    Ha. I needed a Steam update. Bought it now. Peggle is pretty fun. I assume I can install Steam on my Wife's computer and let her use it. It probably served it's purpose, which is to sell the full game.

                            The Orange Box—featuring Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal, as well as the complete Half-Life 2 experience to date—is now available for pre-purchase via Steam. Pre-purchase The Orange Box before the October 10 release to save 10% off the regular price and get exclusive access to the Team Fortress 2 beta on September 17.

                            The Orange Box, penned by IGN.com as "the package which could legitimately be called the deal of the century," features three highly-awaited new games by Valve: Half-Life 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

                            To bring gamers up to date with the Half-Life 2 universe, The Orange Box also includes Half-Life 2, the best-selling and highest-rated action game series of all time, and the episodic debut Half-Life 2: Episode One. Customers who already own these titles will have the ability to conveniently "gift" them to a friend upon official release of The Orange Box.

                            Starting Monday, September 17, those who pre-purchase The Orange Box via Steam can download and activate the beta release of Team Fortress 2 (TF2). This year's most anticipated online action game, TF2 delivers new game types, a signature art style powered by Valve's next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.

                            As a special bonus, those who pre-purchase The Orange Box via Steam will also receive a copy of Peggle Extreme. PopCap and Valve have teamed up to create a special edition of the game cited by MSNBC as one of the “Top 5 Most Addicting Games of All Time.” This first ever collaboration is themed around content from Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and Portal which will positively result in Extreme Fever.
                            This is a list of the games that are included in the purchase, was in a rush during my first post... Sorry :\

                            Half-Life 2
                            Half-Life 2:Ep1
                            Half-Life 2:Ep2
                            Portal
                            Team Fortress 2
                            Peggle

                            If you already own one of these games (Half-Life/Ep1) you can give the game to a friend as a "Gift" apon release of the other titles.

                              Odd that they would say to "cancel your vacations for Tuesday" then not release the beta until Monday. (Yea they were obviously joking, but still)

                              Anyway, I'll be waiting till Sunday night to pick it up. (I think I can resist Peggle until then...or play the shareware version :p)
