    No titles announced yet, but there will be some soon, and also I guess there's the byproduct of Source coming to 360:

    Source is being updated all the time. The version of source you saw running on Xbox ain't the same as the one that'll be on 360.

    Not sure how long HL3 has been in the works..

    Didn´t MS have Valve (and HL3) in one of those slides related to XNA?
    I remember seeing Half Life 3 mentioned with XNA in a slide a time ago..

    I don't think next Half-life is called Half-Life 3, I heard that't it was going to be called a bit weirly Half-Life 2 episode 1??, The name Half-Life 2 aftermath is also known. I don't think there has been any news about a game called Half-Life 3.

    edit: apparently Valve is going to release the game more frequently and therefore going to release it as episodes, still it's weird that they are going to call it episode 1.

    Yup, in a shaky cam shot of a MS presentation, HALF-LIFE 3 is in the middle of a list of engines. Sure, HL3 isn't an engine, but MS probably just goofed up.

    That news is over two years old... even before Half-life 2 was released and Basically it is just talking about game after Half-Life 2 which is now confirmed to be episode1/aftermath.

    Odd since Gabe said Half-Life 2 was the only console game he has made that was a dissapointment. They need to use much newer updated engine or something because Source still looks good now but in a year or two it will look bad.

    I wonder if we'll see episodic releases from valve over Live. Seems thats the direction they're heading with some projects and XBL would be an ideal delivery platform.

    Great news for the 360.

    I would love a "full" console version of half-life 2.The xbox port was horrible.

    If im not mistaken, the recent Doug interview stated Episode 2 would bring more to the table. (And you can probably expect that 2007).

    This will be huge for both Valve and Microsoft. I imagine that most of the games that will use the updated Source engine will be Live! Arcade titles that you will also be available for purchase through Steam. Perhaps Live! and Steam purchases will be one and the same so you can get your game on anywhere.

    This is certainly a win for MS. It sounds like the Live Server Protocol coupled with money hats changed Gabe's opinion from bitter ambivalence to happy happy joy joy.
