Half-Life 2 Up And Running On Xbox!!

15:20 During our recent Access All Areas tour of Valve Software's US offices, we uncovered some white-hot Half-Life 2 news that's more exciting than Stacey Keibler calling us up and offering to do a naked centrefold. Valve has already confirmed that Half-Life 2 is coming to Xbox, right? And Newell confirmed it's well up-and-running, too. "We have it running on Xbox right now, but a decision on how and when we'll release it is reliant on our ongoing conversations with Microsoft," Valve's managing director said to our sister print publication CVG magazine. But how will it compare to its PC cousin? Well, according to Gabe, the Xbox version will be identical to the PC one, only slightly inferior in the graphics department. So imagine the best looking PC game from 12 months ago - say Unreal II - and you'll be pretty close to how it'll look. In other words, it's still going to be one of if not the best looking Xbox title ever. Better still, all of the PC version's facial animation, physics and musculature systems will be in there, too! It's also guaranteed to run more smoothly than a Porsche on rails, no matter how many aliens cram onto your TV. How? By fractionally reducing the detail level of each creature, so the mayhem continues uninterrupted. Sweet. As yet there's no release date, with the PC version shipping first. But one thing's for sure - Xbox ain't that far behind.
