On the PC version of HL2 Valve released a chapter they didn't include in the original game that took place on a beach available for free on Steam. I think the whole point was to show off the bloom effect and there's no doubt that it looked absolutely stunning but unfortunately it bogged down my PC to a crawl so the game was unplayable. Does anyone know if Valve is including this level in the Orange Box when it comes out on the PS3 and 360? Or if it might be available as a microtransaction down the line?

It was released as a 'what half life could look like if we did not have to worry about compatibility with low end machines' test. It looked great, but in order to sell on the PC a game has to be able to scale to a pretty low common denominator and that is why consoles can hold their own in many cases.
