    I was holding off my pre order until I got more information about the Special Edition anyway.

    EDIT: Maybe you should cancel ring up and confirm. Not that the retailer will have any clue whatsoever about what's going on.

    According to Gabe, even Valve doesn't know what's going on... It appears that Sept 30th is about to be a day of reckoning more then a release date for a much anticipated game. If the game ships on said date then my guess would be that it will be the single player only version.

    Erm, where did Gabe say that Valve didn't know what was going on. They said they were fiddling with the plans. But the gist is there.

    The single player version sold in the shops will be cheaper.

    It's for people with no intention of playing the game online.

    Fiddling with the plans doesn't sound like they aren't sure then what the hell does? They rather know or don't know..

    How many of these threads are we going to see? can't you just discuss this in the other ten bazillion threads?

    Wraith if you need to know which version you ordered you should ask the shop from which you placed your order...

    Where are people hearing there are going to be three versions? Sounds like a bogus rumor to me. There will be a regular edition and a collector's edition. The collector's edition will contain some stuff like a music CD or an art book or whatnot, but the actual game will be the same for both versions. You'll be paying extra for the goodies, not for additional game functionality.

    Come on, folks, just think things a little before you decide you're going to believe every rumor that comes down the pike. If it really doesn't make sense (and Valve selling multiple code branches of Half-Life 2 certainly does not) then it's a good idea to just desregard the information.
