|Half Life 2 - First charge already sold out|
VU Games already started reproduction before release
Seven days before the official release on November 16th 2004, the shooter Half-Life 2 is already sold out according to Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games). The cause of that are a few hundredthousand preorders, which exceeded the initial expectations, said the publisher.
The second charge of Half-Life 2 is already in Production. "Many of our customers have raised their orders again during the last few days", says Thomas Mohlen, the sales manager of VU Games Germany. They try to cover all orders in time with the second charge.
Delivery shouldn't be a problem for those with broadband internet though, as Half-Life 2 developer Valve Software is planning to release the game at the same time online via Steam.

The prospect of digital delivery over Steam is sounding ever more appealing.
