HL2: Episode Two demo on XBL

Sample Xbox 360 Orange Box at some point today, says Valve

A demo of Half-Life 2: Episode Two should be hitting Xbox Live Marketplace today, says Valve.

It's the first of presumably many samplers from The Orange Box, which is made up of three Half-Life episodes, Team Fortress 2 and the excellent Portal. The last one would be ideal for a trial we reckon, as there are still plenty of poor souls that still haven't discovered how bloody fantastic it is.

Xbox 360 and PC owners can buy the Valve pack now, and the PS3 version is pencilled in for release on December 14.

And if you're still not convinced by the demo, come back and read our reviews of the Orange box trio, Episode Two, Portal and Team Fortress 2.
