Orange Box Earns More than 100 Awards

Valve has announced that The Orange Box - its multiplatform, multi-game offering - has earned over 100 first place awards for both the compilation and the individual titles.

More than 50 of those awards were for 2007 "Game of the Year" honours - including PC Game of the Year from our sister site Eurogamer.net for Portal.

Portal, in fact, leads the other two games introduced in The Orange Box - Half-Life 2: Episode Two and Team Fortress 2 - in terms of the number of honours received.

"While some have called it the best value in video game history, Valve took a chance with the product mix in The Orange Box, the game design of Portal, and the art style of Team Fortress 2," said president Gabe Newell.

"After earning the top review scores of all time on two platforms, becoming a best seller on multiple platforms, and accumulating over 100 awards, that risk has been rewarded by gamers and game critics around the world.

"We look forward to following up on the success of The Orange Box later this year with the launch of Left 4 Dead on PC and Xbox 360."

The Orange Box was released in October 2007 for the PC and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version followed in December.
