Half-Life coming to PlayStation2

Sierra Studios™ and Gearbox Software today announced development of Valve's Half-Life for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. The game will bring award-winning, adrenaline-pumping action to the next-generation console in 2001, complete with exciting new cooperative, deathmatch and multiplayer modes. Half-Life for PlayStation 2 is in development by Gearbox Software, developers of the award-winning Half-Life PC expansion, Half-Life: Opposing Force. Half-Life PlayStation 2 will ship in the second quarter of 2001.

Half-Life PlayStation 2 is an all-new experience for console gamers featuring a complete next-generation upgrade of the original ground-breaking game as well as entirely new multiplayer cooperative and competitive bonus games set within the Half-Life universe. All new advanced technology, enhanced characters and weapons, upgraded environments and never before seen levels define Half-Life for PlayStation 2 as the most advanced and impressive Half-Life ever made. The worldwide exclusive on this game will be featured in the January issue of GamePro magazine (U.S.).

"The advanced technology in PlayStation 2 will allow us to take Half-Life's heart-racing action to the next level," said Jim Veevaert, vice-president of marketing at Sierra Studios. "Given the popularity of the franchise, as well as the mind-blowing capabilities of the next-generation console, we fully expect Half-Life to be a marquee title for the PlayStation 2."

"Gearbox Software's intimate relationship with Valve Software and the Half-Life universe matched with the power of the PlayStation 2 and our growing experience as next-generation console game developers will carry us to deliver first-hand the greatest incarnation of the most important action game of our time," said Randy Pitchford, Director of Gearbox Software.

Half-Life coming to PlayStation2

I feel that the conversion from pc to console was innevitable, as the developers try to show off what they can do, and the console companies show off how powerful thier systems are. I don't think the console versions will match up to the pc quality or success. But never the less at least more people can experience the wonder that is Half-Life

This'll suck massivly to all those ps2 lovers ya dumbasses the dc version is gonna rock your asses. The dc has better control in first person shooters and because you can d/l half0life for dc you can then put your own mods and to ct no it wotn have Counter-Strike

Battletek...tsk tsk tsk, spot the image of a sad, sad little man, the Dc version and the PS2 version will poop on the pc version, yup i began on pc...but more and more the consoles r looking much, much better...imagine SOUL CALIBUR on a pc (lmao!) as for control issues...both have mouse and keyboard (DC and PS2), and as for data storage...spot the hard drive on the PS2...and the backup one for Dc. 'Nuff said. <--- from the ALL PLATFORMS gamer.

fking psx2 don´t you see those graphics. and it only has 4mb videoram. compare those to geforce2gts ultra with 64mb ddr ram. the difference is so huge. i really recommend that everyone who is going to buy a psx2 and already has a good pc should think twice before buying a psx2. because with the price of psx2 you can get the geforce 2gts with 64mbddr ram(at least in finland). and of course ps2 won´t never have a mod like counter strike. so every one should really consider alternative options. psx2 is a crappy machine. what else can you do with it exept playing games. nothing. maybe the graphics of ps2 H-L are better but ps2 can´t have the counterstrike

why is it that us people who go out and buy the original game, to help make it so successful; get sh*t upon by the developers when they really change the levels and layout of the game around a lot?!!!!!!!!!!!????? what do they think we are?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

It is a good idea to bring a great game to a console system. The biggest problem will be the controlls, they will suffer tremendously. You can't play a game designed for a mouse and keyboard with a playstation controller.Yes, the ps2 has a 4mb video card, but with the ps2's ability to pump 44 million polygons a second through it, it's like having a 32MB card, or thereabouts. Secondly you can do much more than play games with a ps2, just like the dreamcast, it can go online with either a modem or a broadband connection (cable, DSL). Also, eventually the PS2 will have a hard drive (via a USB port) and a whole bunch of other things too. It will be like having an affordable PC.

Hi,Also ist doch ganz einfach:Half-Life auf PS2 ist doch cool ,weil die Grafik dann mal optimiert wird.Dann ist es doch egal ob das Teil nur 4 MB Grafikspeicher hat.Es wird trotzdem sehr gute Grafik rauskommen, weil die Programmierergenaue Sytemvorgaben haben und deshalb können sie auch bessere Grafik als bei einem PC erzeugen.Natürlich ist der PC viel besser, rein technisch gesehen, aber man kann kein Spiel für (PC) optimieren weil dieses Teil ist VARIABEL.(weil KEIN PC gleich ist!!!! ABER DIE PS2 ist es!!)Also Half-LIfe auf der PLaystation wird bestimmt cool!!Hoffe das man es brennen kann!!SEK

Hey u PC fans. I'm not a fan of the PS 2 but many of the developers are turing to the consols. So u will soon have a drought of games! Maybe the PC will over power the PS 2, game cube and X box - but with no good games to play on it on what the point!?!?

Half-Life coming to PlayStation2

HALF LIFE rulez! It is a step forward in gaming experience. PS2 is good (no doubt) but just to shut the mouth of some Console-Loving-And-PC-Hater-Creeps, I would advise to take a look at the wonders a PC can do. Maybe you don't know but there are lots of EMULATORS to make a pc a console.

Half-Life coming to PlayStation2

Well thank about it.. We all own a PC.. everyone else in the world owns a PC.. So multiplayer on a PC is going to be better..However.. If you have 4 controlers you can just pack it up and take it to a friends house.. So it can go both ways.
