–> Question #1
I purchased Half-Life 2 from the store, will I be able to play Day of Defeat: Source when it is released? Is there a difference between the retail version of Half-Life 2 and the version avaliable over Steam?
–> Answer #1
If you purchased Half-Life 2 at a store (whether or not it was the Collector's Edition or standard), or purchased the Half-Life 2 Bronze Package over Steam, you own the Half-Life 2 Bronze Package. You won't be able to play Day of Defeat: Source unless you purchase the Half-Life 2 Silver or Gold Package.
This doesn't imply you'll need to buying Half-Life 2 all over again; rather, you're paying the difference in cost between the Bronze package and the new package you want to acquire.
EDIT March 1st '05: Valve MAY announce a new method which will allow owners of the Bronze package to upgrade to to a Silver or Gold Package.
