PC or 360? And, does the PC version have Achievements? Just wondering.

I would purchase it for the computer, mainly because if you like Mapping & designing modifications, you can use there source engine and produce such things. With the Xbox Version you can't do that and it will start to get boring doing the same thing over and over again.

The only way i would consider get it for 360 is if your computer couldn't run them well.

There's no achievements (does it really matter?) but you also get to use the tons of mods that are out there for the various games.

I recommend it for the PC. Mods, maps, vibrant community. All is there.

^ seconded

you can also use the games with garrys mod which is a vibrant community in itself which you can't with the 360 and as far as I'm aware its slightly cheaper too :)

PC for sure, Valve releases so much more content for Orange Box on PC than 360. Such as the new Pyro update that just came out today and the Medic update a while back. Plus online play is free, you get custom content from other servers, and you can play with alot more people instead of having a 16-player cap that the 360 has. And yes, there are acheivements for the PC version. About 70+ for TeamFortress 2. Portal and Half-Life EP2 have maybe 40 put together.
