Contrary to a shifty report we drew attention to yesterday, which saw Microsoft's David Hufford tell the Puget Sound Business Journal that "Half-Life 2 is not going to be on the Xbox," spokespeople from Valve and publisher VU Games have scrambled quotes to journalists the world over, with Valve's Doug Lombardi confirming that "Half-Life 2 is planned for the PC and Xbox," adding that "[Valve will] announce a shipping date for the Xbox version later in the year," when speaking to GameSpyDaily. Phew!

'Rogue elements' were no doubt to blame for the mix-up.
