ATI Appease Gamers Over Half-Life 2 Bundle 21

Thanks to Ferrago for their story pointing out that ATI are giving a 'Valve Premier Pack' to all those buying Half Life-2 bundled Radeon graphics cards, since the included voucher for Half-Life 2 in selected ATI bundles may be awaiting collection for some time. According to the article: "In activating their product key via the [Steam] content delivery system (but only before Half-Life 2 is made available) players will then receive the following titles which comprise the pack: Half-Life, Counter Strike, Team Fortress Classic, Deathmatch Classic, Half-Life: Opposing Force and Ricochet", and more information is available on the ATI site.

    Of course, some people have gotten HL to run on the hl2 engine afaik. I'm sure it wasn't too hard, so Valve might do something like it as well, and possibly touch up the textures a wee bit..

    I don't think it's all that stupid. ATI/Valve are just tossing more free stuff at the people who bought a new ATI card. Granted, most of them probably already have HL, but it's not like they're paying more for this bundle. It's just a way to keep the customers from complaining quite so much.

    Here's my question. I bought my Radeon 9700 at Quakecon 2002, and it was supposed to come with a copy of Doom 3 when that game gets released. So, where's my free copies of Doom and Doom 2? Huh?

Someday somebody has got to decide whether the typewriter is the machine, or the person who operates it.
