Still doesn't change the fact that they are not telling people to do anything. If someone wants to play Half Life 1.5 badly enough to spend a whack of cash on the hardware to do so then that is all personal choice. Would I try this game if I had the gear already? Probably. Would I spend 4 Grand just to play HL1.5? Not likely; however, someone else may feel differently and they wouldn't be wrong if they wanted to spend their money to play it.
