ATI to bundle Half Life 2 Episode 2 with Radeon X2900?

Hundreds of news reports have been written about the ATI R600 GPU in the last few months. The GPU is coming closer and closer to consumers and one of the latest rumours is that the chip may be bundled with Half Life 2 Episode 2.

The problem is that this game isn't available yet, so consumers will likely get another voucher action like ATI did when they launched the Radeon 9800 cards. The HL2 voucher action in 2004 resulted in a lot of graphics card sales for ATI but the action did cost them about eight million dollars.

UPDATE: FUD Zilla now claims that users will not only get Half Life 2 Episode 2, but also Team Fortress 2 and Portal.
