The original Half-Life, Valve's first game and one of the most critically lauded PC titles ever, has sold an average of one million copies every year ever since it was first released in 1998. That's an average of one million copies per year, for ten years, without counting digital sales. Wowzers.

Half-Life 2 meanwhile, which was the first game to launch predominantly on Valve's Steam service, has sold more than 6.5 million copies in just four years and is still clocking up retail sales. The Orange Box has managed to sell 3 million copies at retail ever since that was released just last year and Left4Dead is currently on track to beat that record by more than 500,000 copies.

They cant admit it to everyone they made a suck*ss of a game.. cant blame them.
 
And by suck*ss of a game i mean a kind of game that doesnt have an online multiplayer, that alone solves all the piracy issues. A good SP to go along with it simply makes an already amazing game even better.
 
And this is in no way related to the article. Ouch
