Valve to Split The Orange Box on April 9

The Orange Box--Valve's acclaimed compilation containing Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Half-Life 2: Episode 2--will be split into separate PC titles on April 9, according to Joystiq.

The move is not one of desperation. While The Orange Box has done well on consoles, with well over a million copies sold between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, Valve's Doug Lombardi characterized the PC release as "significantly stronger," citing a two-digit percentage increase over the console editions.

No official prices have been announced for the individual packages.

    I saw those listed on "EBGames 'upcoming' list." I wonder if the Orange Box will stay on the shelf next to them, or if that options will go away at retail once the other's show up.
