I want to tell GameGuruMania how i feel about The Orange Box or to be exact the LACK of it. I live in Bulgaria, games here come the same way the come in western countries, a couple of days before the official launch date, some come a week or so before launch.

There is only one company in Bulgaria which is the official distributor of almost all big companies, Pulsar . They are a monopoly company, having total control over the games market, any new distributor that rises gets immediately squashed by them(there have been a few attempts for online shops using the same business model like amazon.com).

And The Orange Box, according to EA Games, the official release date of TOB in Europe is 19th of October 2007 and that is what was giving on Pulsar's site. 19th of October comes and suddenly we see a new release date stating 23rd of October, let me say that this new release date for Bulgaria made a lot of people angry (including me). So today i check their site and there is a NEW release date, 26th of October, i have to say that was the last straw in my patience, i no longer wish to buy TOB. Not because its a bad pack, its a super pack of games but i just do not wish to wait for something which has been available for 4 days in Europe and i can get from Pulsar is "there is a problem with The Orange Box". NOTE: the Xbox360 version of the game is in-stock, but not the PC version.

So i want to ask, do you believe it is worth calling people that have no interest in talking with you and asking WHEN WILL IT FINALLY BE AVAILABLE?


Thank you GGmania

Sorry, man, but since Valve is located in the USA, the release date for The Orange Box is going to be different in other countries. I just finished Episode Two and I'm almost done Portal (I'm at the boss fight). They're worth waiting for, trust me. Wink
