Seeing as how a straight answer is nowhere to be found from Valve themselves, please GiantBomb, find out and tell us if or when we xbox 360 Team Fortress 2 players are going to see any kind of support from the company. PC gamers have seen countless updates and patches whereas we have been, what seems to be completly ignored. Any "new" info would be appreciated.

They've stated they are going to be releasing the updates from the PC version to the XBOX, however MS is doing the usual and forcing them to charge for it.

...and this forcing them to charge has apparently prompted Valve to say "we have to make sure it's worth paying for".

Regardless of  statements made in the past, neither Valve or Microsoft have made any recent claims regarding DLC. The orange box has been out for close to a year on  consoles and no updates or bug fixes?? Makes me regret spending the money when I could have recieved a superior product for a more reasonable price on the PC. I made my choice and bought it for the 360. I'm not going to buy it again just so I can recieve support from valve. Their attitude toward their non-PC customers well....SUCKS. Charge or not, at least give us the option.

I must say that I quite enjoy the PC version.  All the user-created maps and custom sound effects are pretty sweet (Do the console ones have that? I don't know, I've never played those versions) along with the updates.

Yep, PC version of Orange Box/TF2 > consoles, and always will, just that type of game, but anyway.. before the year ends, they said they are patching it into XBL, they want to get as much content as they can cram into the update..but microsoft being themselves of course is forcing them to charge for it

I just have it on pc.

I rented the OB on the 360, Portal is fine on it, probably better than the pc version, but TF2 is meh on it.  Not really a good translation.  Not really bad, but it just lacks something. Just get it for the pc (its not like its demanding)
HL2 sucks all around so i wont get into that
