where can u pre-order



so....where can u ? and what's this about SE's? link me up :devil:
I would laso like to know where i can order the special edition of the game. I probably wont buy it as i work in a store where we stock the best selling games so i will be able to nab myself a copy of HL2 on either the 27th of Sept or the 28th.

Also... Why do sites like amazon.co.uk have the release date down as 3rd Oct when Valve maintain the game will be released in Europe on the 30th of sept?
Sorry if I missed the thread, but what is the collector's edition?
