You probably caned Bioshock on either PC of Xbox 360 all weekend, but the FPS masters at Valve had no such luck; a ban has been imposed on them going anywhere near 2K's shooter until Half-Life: Episode Two and The Orange Box are finished and out the door.

"We had to ban Bioshock from our offices," Valve boss Gabe Newell told us. "Nobody gets to play it until Orange Box is done - that's our reward to ourselves as a company; everyone gets a copy of Bioshock."

That's a load of crap. Assuming any of them have time, they've played it.

i know thats a good thing.

Yeah i think it's smart to ban it from the office because that would surely slow their progress so I can somewhat understand where they are coming from

I'd like to see them try and ban Halo 3 when it comes out, they better get the OJ out and fast they are under the 30 mark now.

well i rather have them work on half-life and make it sweet then having them play bioshock

Since it's taking them so long to come out with it, you'd think they would just ban playing any other video games at work. Everyone else gets along just fine at work without them.
