Posted on September 24, 2007, Jonathan Valve Expands Orange Box Pre-Order Offers to GameStops
Valve has announced that it has partnered with GameStop to extend their pre-order offer for The Orange Box to retail stores. Now if you pre-order The Orange Box for PC at any GameStop, you’ll get 10% off the list price as well as a key code and instructions for downloading and activating the Team Fortress 2 beta. This deal has been available for awhile through Steam, and thousands of people are already in the beta for Team Fortress 2; but now people wanting the physical retail copy can start playing the beta too. When it is released in October, The Orange Box will contain Half-Life 2, Episode One, Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. As an added incentive, if you already have Half-Life 2 and/or Episode One, you can gift them to a friend at no charge. Seriously, if you haven’t gotten this already, it’s the best deal ever. Team Fortress 2 alone is worth the price.
