Picked this up this morning at Kmart in Tallahassee, FL. Its selling for $60 on Amazon (third party) and is fairly hard to find used anywhere. I left one there for any CAGs in the area that are interested.

I just did a google shopping search for it and saw that blockbusters in my area have it for 14.99 also.

Just beware TF2 has not been updated for years, and it is a little bit buggy. If you never played HL2 or Portal though, it's great.

YMMV on finding a copy, but it should be $14.99 at all Kmarts - it was clearanced out a couple of months ago. Check the giant Kmart Gamer sticky for full lists :)

Edit: The 360 copy is also $14.99.

Yup. And with the release of portal 2 everyone wants the first one

TF2 has NEVER really been updated beyond the bug fixes. The PC version has a thriving community and a ton of official updates that added new weapons, cosmetic items, and even a few new modes of play to the game.

The console version is TF2 frozen at launch, and there's not much reason to play it these days.

That's a great deal. Since Valve hasn't released the original Portal on PSN.

I might need to call some stores. Lol.

Ludicrous idea for a thread. And it's a repost. 1% of people reading this will ever find this game. It came out in 07 LOL.

Edit: That said if anyone finds extras please pm me. I'll make it worth your time to send them my way.

I've looked at upwards of a dozen Kmarts and never found this for PS3, only 360. OP or anyone else who has one at their KMart, pm me and I will gladly pay you big bucks for it.

Edit: Cheeky called it first. Well, if you find two, double your profits!

OP here, i talked to the kmart manager about it, and he said they are still getting radom shipments of the game. It has been OOS forever and the last few weeks he has seen more shipped in. He found it weird...

Yeah. The PS3 version isn't getting more reprints (= OOP)

The 360 version is widely available everywhere.

Portal: Still Alive was only released on XBox Live. Orange Box is the only way to play Portal 1 on the PS3.

Be sure to check out Wiki about the PS3 version of Orange Box. Not developed by Valve, buggy and had only a few updates.

That said, it's OOP (PS3) and worth the cash now.

I was trying to track down a copy at gamestop and the clerk suggested i try steam...i played through Portal on my Mac Mini (not a gaming powerhouse at all) before I started Portal 2. I also started HL2 and it played fine too. Just an option if you want to play the game and dont care what platform (and you have a mac or pc). I think Orange box was $20 on steam.

Probably because you can get the entire Orange box for the same price as Still Alive. It's 1200 points ($15) on the marketplace.

A local K-Mart had 3 or 4 PS3 copies for $20 for nearly an entire year as of 3 or 4 months ago. Needless to say, that is no longer the case. (And no, it wasn't me that bought them all!) I regret not picking up one copy for collecting purposes. Ahh well...

I got Portal free from Steam awhile back. Would I be able/can that be an option to play on Portal on PS3 or is that cross platform thing just for Portal 2? I would be awesome if I could play Steam games on my PS3.

I just traded my copy to GS this week. I had played through all the HalfLife games, and Portal, had no use for Team Fortress. So I traded it...thanks for making me feel foolish!

With the amount of times The Orange Box has gone on sale on Steam, I don't really see the point in getting hyped over a buggy console port that wasn't even really handled by Valve. :\
