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. :\

FWIW I have played most of Portal on PS3 recently and haven't noticed any bugs. Maybe they've been fixed in the 3 years since release.

I had a really bad experience with this a few weeks a go when I noticed the $14.99 price. Out of the 6 or so K-Marts within an hours~ drive from here, only one had it listed in stock on the website. I chose the pick-up in store option, paid for it, and waited for the confirmation e-mail. The order said it should be sent within a couple hours.

Well, the next day at 4:00 PM I still hadn't received the e-mail, so I called them and asked what was going on. Their response? "Oh, you wanted the... 'orange box'? Yeah, we couldn't find it." I wanted to ask "so were you planning to let me know that?!" but I didn't think it was worth arguing... She told me to go online and cancel the order, which I'd already tried; the store has to cancel it. I told her that and she fixed it for me.

Needless to say, I was very disappointed :( It was only an hour away and I was willing to drive, figured I'd check a few stores around there for other deals I may not have in my town. Oh well.

Moral of the Story: Don't believe online inventories. Always call first. I've learned that the hard way.

If you want a copy really bad for PS3, I recommend you just import it from Europe


I second this idea. I just picked up a PAL copy from Ebay for around $25. It works fine on my U.S. PS3.

Zavvi is a great site! I recently ordered the Prince of Persia Trilogy for $20 brand new. Works flawlessly. If you pick it up new at K-mart or so, it'll be $39.99. Plus it's free shipping as well.

the PS3 Orange Box isn't bad, per se. HL1 and HL2 had some laggy spots and froze on me a couple of times. Portal seemed to work fine though, but probably because its not very "Action"y for most of it.

Well worth the 15 bucks, but only if you don't have a computer that could run the games.

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.

Hey I found 124 copies you can have them all at cost, i encourage others to follow suit

I've played PAL games on my ps3 as well but when I tried to play on one that WASN'T hooked up with HDMI, it didn't work.

So you have to be careful if you aren't playing with HDMI when it comes to PAL games.

I have sealed copy due to lack of time. Guess I will keep it sealed. If I ever see a used one at GS or BB I will buy and play it.

It's also $14 at Sears, you can use Google Shopping to get a reasonably-accurate idea of what stores have it in stock.

Is this game really worth the purchase of a used copy? I absolutely love Portal, but haven't played the other games and was thinking of picking it up a few months ago. I see their is a used copy at my local Gamestop. Is it worth the $29.99 price for possible playing/collecting purposes?

Edit: Apparently there are some Walmarts who still have these in stock. The online price is saying $19.82. I might go check out my local store tomorrow.

So, this would be ok to buy for my US PS3? :) It would be $23 and change.

I remember buying this game a few years ago and it having major audio problems. Google "orange box ps3 audio static" to see what I'm talking about. I ended up getting rid of it for the Xbox version. Were these sound issues ever fixed with a patch?
