Orange Box demo on Live

First up: Episode 2.

Valve has said a demo for The Orange Box should be making its way to Xbox Live today.

This first sampler will let you get a feel for Half-Life 2: Episode 2, and presumably be followed in coming weeks by tasters for Portal and possibly Team Fortress 2. Very good.

Earlier this week EA told us the PS3 version would be out next month on 14th December, quashing rumours that it would not make it in time for Christmas oh no what will I get in my stocking etc.

Those of you with a 360 and PC can already buy it, however, and we thoroughly recommend you do so. It has five games inside it, for starters, and none have scored lower than 9/10 on Eurogamer.

Head over to The Orange Box review to see what we made of it all.
