Electronic Arts has announced it plans to make the components of The Orange Box available separately.
The Orange Box, you will recall, was originally released for PC and Xbox 360 in October, and PS3 a bit later. It was comprised of Half Life: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress. Kristan thought it was marvellous.
The three components have been available separately via Steam for some time, but now EA boss John Ricitiello has said individual box copies are also on the way.
Speaking in a conference all he said, "We are unbundling Orange Box and releasing separate PC SKUs, Half Life 2: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress." Nice one John, one wonders if your hair is made of real silver.
No word on a price or date yet, but we'll keep you posted.
