Da parte di Gabe cicciobbello Newell:
"Within a few days of the announcement of the break-in, the online gaming community had tracked down those involved. It was extraordinary to watch how quickly and how cleverly gamers were able to unravel what are traditionally unsolvable problems for law enforcement related to this kind of cyber-crime."
"It was very uplifting to see how the community rallied and tracked these people down. Everyone here at Valve is once again reminded of how much we owe to the gaming community."
Sembra proprio che i responsabili del fattaccio che ha costretto Valve al rinvio di 10 mesi di Half Life 2 siano stati arrestati anche e sopratutto grazie al supporto della gente che ha continuato a sostenere il gioco.
Ora manca solo il gioco.
