Praised by many publications (including DailyGame) as the best value in the game industry, The Orange Box has now shipped for the PlayStation 3. This collection of five games (Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2 Episodes 1 and 2, and Portal) is now available for PS3 in North America and most of Europe, with French and German versions expected in early 2008.
DailyGame recently recommended The Orange Box in our 2007 Holiday Gift Guide as an ideal gift for gamers who want to get their money’s worth.
The Orange Box was released earlier this year on the Xbox 360 and PC to critical acclaim, with both versions averaging a 96% on Metacritic and being tied for the highest-rated games on each respective platform.
The five-games-in-one-package includes the highest-rated first person shooter of all time Half-Life 2, as well as Half-Life 2: Episode One and three all-new games:
Half Life 2: Episode Two: Episode 2 is the latest chapter in the best-selling, highest-rated action game franchise of all time, taking gamers outside the walls of City 17 for the first time as Gordon and Alyx race across the White Forest in race to save mankind from the Combine.
Portal: A groundbreaking new kind of action game that will forever change the way gamers interact with their environment, Portal gives players mastery over 3D space with the mind-bending new Portal gun.
Team Fortress 2: The long-awaited return of the standard for class-based multiplayer games, Team Fortress 2 delivers fast-paced action with nine distinct character classes and six all-new gameplay modes.
