Steam Weekend Deal: Orange Box, 10 Bucks

OK, you REALLY have no excuse for missing this game now.

For the five of you who didn't already sink your teeth into the ridiculous value of Valve's comprehensive masterwork The Orange Box, I say: Get thee to Steam. There, the package--including Half-Life 2 and its first two episodic expansions, Team Fortress 2, and the sublime Portal--is 66 percent off its regular price. As an example, Valve points out that in the U.S., this sale brings the price down to an uncomfortably low $9.99. That's five full, excellent games for less than an evening movie ticket in a lot of places. 


Maybe you should just go buy a second copy and gift it to someone. How can you afford to miss out on shenanigans like these?

It's the same price as a single game from the collection. You'd be a fool not to buy it!

Damn

I have this for the 360 but I don't have the three newest games for the PC so why not right?

Posted by Rinkalicous

I recently bought Team Fortress 2 for 7 pounds/11ish dollars, and I thought that was a crazy deal, but now you can get the whole thing for cheaper? Buying this is like MAKING money!

Posted by crunchUK

WOW that is one hell of a bargain. And to think i was considering buying it 2 for £15 for 360

Posted by Everyones_A_Critic

If I didn't already have it I'd definetly make an effort to pick it up.

Posted by DECA555

kinda wish i didnt pick this up LAST WEEK!!!

Posted by Hamz

Even at full price the Orange Box is sublime and amazing. But at 66% off? That is an outright bargain!

Posted by myketuna

People should definitely get in on this. Half-Life 2/Episode 1/Episode 2 are great single-player games. Team Fortress 2 is very much alive and kicking, probably more so than it is on consoles. Portal, which I shamefully haven't finished BUT have played, is really good. Lots of people probably loved it more for the indie vibe, but I thought it was good. Not "I'm gonna keep saying the cake is a lie and listen to Coulton from now on forever" good.

I want a credit card so bad, someone gift it to me ;)

Posted by TravisT

Yup, I'm buying it now.

Posted by Church069

Wow, I was looking for a copy of the PC version of orange box at local retail, but this price beats anything I've seen so far in stores.  Will definitely buy.  Thanks for the heads up.

Posted by AndrewB

Soon, everybody will be issued a copy of The Orange Box at birth.

Posted by Thordain

Okay, I'll bite.

Posted by bobpie24

I just now bought it, amazing deal.

Posted by AURON570

i would... but my parents are against online shopping. and i'm satisfied with just TF2, which i bought last summer for $20.

Posted by MasturbatingBear

Fuck. I wish I had a card to act on this deal.

Posted by Logan

This has to be the best deal in video game history. I thought full price for Orange Box at launch was a steal. This is just silly.

Posted by Hairydutchman

 For the amount of fun you get 10 bucks is almost offensive.

Posted by Aska

This is absurd!

Posted by lacke

I was actually going to order TOB from a retailer for €20. Lucky for me I was too lazy to do it. :)

Yeah, I should have grabbed this a long time ago but when it was released I didn't feel like paying €50 for "three games" and somewhere along the line I figured I'd grab this and L4D together in some package or together with Ep3, finishing the saga.

Posted by Beechbone

Great deal, I'd buy it but I already own Orange Box for both PC and 360 :)

Posted by Diamond

I can't believe the PC version is selling at $27 or $30.  Just a heads up to console only owners, 360 or PS3 version can be bought new for $20 most places.

Edited by HitmanAgent47

That works out to about two dollars per game.

Posted by Reverseface

Thats a fucking STEAL OF A PRICE if you don't own the orange box yet GOGOOG GET IT!!!

Posted by addictedtopinescent

You should go get the Orange Box full price if you don't have it, 

but damn that's a great price, I almost want to buy it again. 
Posted by Meteora

Buy buy buy!

Posted by matrix_hiei

is there anyone that doesn't already have this? it was a steal when it came out for $60.

Posted by DukeEdwardI

The fools who don't already own this now have no excuse.

Posted by bartholomew999

I played the shit out of this when I had my 360, now I've only got TF2 on Steam so yeah, I'm getting this and Braid for $25 total.  Crazy-cheap.

Posted by GHT

my computer probably won't even run it.

Posted by Hitchenson

I've got it on 360. Been wanting it for P.C. for a while now, and hey! Now's my chance.

Posted by Captain_Fookup

I may as well pick it up even though I own it for the 360, hopefully TF2 runs like buttah on my mah macbook using crossover games.

Posted by Neurogamer

I feel like buying it all over again.

Posted by IshimuraD

holy deal...doesn't it make sense!

Posted by NickL

i just bought it, downloading tf2 now, send me a pm if anyone wants to meet up in game or anything (sorry dont have mic)

@lordandrew
it isnt only the price of a single game, it is actually half the price of team fortress 2 on its own...  i had a feeling they would do a deal like this some time soon so i have been scouting tf2 for the past 2 weeks lol... (kinda cant afford games at full price very often)

Posted by Krenor

you are practically losing money by not buying this, everyone who doesn't have it must buy it

Posted by SuperMooseman

Absolute bargain. TF2 is double that price, and your getting the whole Orange Box in this deal. If you don't have it already, get it now!

Posted by sdauz

ok now i have no bloody excuse.....plus u get cs and hl2deathmatch.....but i do already have portal and hl2 seperately

Posted by Metal_Mills

No you don't get CS. You get HL 2 + Ep 1 and 2, TF2 and Portal. Amazing bargin though. I wish all companies did this I'd buy so many more games!

Posted by brainwins

I was gonna buy it... then I realized I had bought it like a year ago and never downloaded any of the games.

Posted by CleverLoginName

I payed full price for it when it came out and I still felt like it was a steal. 

Posted by usedtype

$10 is worth it alone if you still haven't played Portal.  Through in TF2 and all the free content it's gotten since its release, and this is a no-brainer.  Buy it now, and I'll see you in Badwater Basin.

Posted by solidpython

£5.66 in the uk... beyond a bargain!

Posted by frenchdork

I really want to wait for Ep.3 before I buy the whole HL package though... I already bought Portal a while ago so... I dunno... ack!

Posted by Sabata

Goddamnit, why did I buy this 2 weeks ago. 

Posted by mracoon

You should be ashamed of yourself if you haven't picked up this game yet. Even at full price I thought it was probably the best game deal ever and now it's going for $10!! That's $2 a game!!
