They do this all the time... you could have just waited? How is this any different from a store offering a sale on something the day after you bought it at full price?

To be honest. TF2 and the Orange box are easily worth more than you payed for them. Now let Valve enjoy your money so that they can continue providing us with great FREE updates.

Dude, chill. Pretty much every Mac release has come with a discount, if you really wanted to save money you could have waited. Plus, it's only a $10 difference.

TF2 was already released for like 2 weeks for $20 so thats bs that they change the price after everyone pretty much bought the game already

yeah it was u could buy it with orange box or separate 2 weeks ago when HL2 came out and it was $20 so technically it was released but not playable. and everyone who paid $20 for the game should be jarateed also when u see the game went 50% off when its been out for 2 weeks

I'm pretty jarateed as well, I want to the mall earlier and I saw a Super Nintendo selling for $30. What the , Nintendo? I bought mine in 1991 for $210! That's $180 difference! I'm calling them up right now and giving them a piece of my mind!

well if we play it like that; i bought the orange box for 30$ in 2008 and i can play it now, so technically wasnt it released for mac then? (even though i just couldnt play it on mac os x yet)
