Default Half-Life 2 Question

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...tware+PC+Games

If I buy that, I'll be able to play Half-Life 2 as well as Counterstrike: Source, correct?

Yeah, but you could also download it directly from Steam and get more for your $$$.

www.steampowered.com

Yes, it is correct, you get hl2 and cs:source.

And how does downloading directly from Steam get more for you money?

Last time i checked it was more on STEam.

It's $49.99 on Steam, it's only $34.99 at Newegg. If I buy from Steam, I get no CD-Roms, and no manual. If I buy from Newegg, I get both. I fail to see how buying it from steampowered.com will get me more.

Thanks for the info, anyway.

But, if you buy from steam, it comes with 1.6, Condition 0, and you also get DOD: Source when it comes out. I think. Correct me if im wrong.

OMFG.... I didn't mean the basic edition! I meant Silver is a better buy. You get the back catalog, CS Source, HL2, HL1 Source, Deathmatch, and Day of Defeat Source. It is the BEST BUY.

And cheat Valve out of their well earned money right? Cheap.... How would you like it if people stole your money and said it was fine? You wouldn't, stealing ANY Game Designers game is jsut wrong.
