Half-Life 2 (Xbox) NOT a Platinum Hits Title
It seems that the official Canadian Xbox web site is incorrect, and Half-Life 2 is not going to be a Platinum Hits Title as of release.
Future Shop is selling it for $59.99 upon release, and EB Games is selling it for $49.99 (US).
I'd say it's a rental first, and I'm also disappointed that there's no Limited Collector's Edition with an included port of Half-Life: Game of the Year Edition, similar to what id Software did for the Xbox version of Doom 3 with classic Doom.
However, looking at the official release calender, Half-Life 2 is the best upcoming Xbox game on the list, so there isn't much coming out soon (excluding the Xbox 360, of course).
