Wait till Portal 2 comes out, or even if and that's a big IF HL2:EP3 comes out then you know we'll see the 4 million mark hit.

Todays peak was 70K under all time high (which IIRC happened on January 9th).

The Complete Saga is for like £5 on Amazon, Steam doesn't have to be everything.

If only the titles from the first decade actually worked in vista (don't know about win7). I bought the bundle for $20 a couple years ago and the only game that worked out of them all was Tiberian Sun, which ran at double the speed it was supposed to.

I know, right? I was thinking Valve revealed themselves to be aliens and drastically reduced the population of Earth by making their users explode.

But no, just another badly-titled forum thread. Honestly, I need to pay more attention to the mouseover text.

The one's(tib sun, CNC95 and RA1) I downloaded from the EA website seem to work fine in Win 7. And I was running RA2 from TFD on vista without problems(except for my anti-virus crashing it at loading screens ). I don't know if RA2 works in win7 as I haven't tried it.
