    No, a revision would be 1.2. (Compare Windows 8.1)
    "Source 2.0" and "Source2" imply exactly the same thing.
     
    FordGT90Concept and FX-GMC say thanks.

    I played Half Life 2, then Splinter Cell Chaos Theory and finally Far Cry. Overall, I think HL2 looked the best, and Far Cry the worst. Everything from textures, to water, to the cartoonish coloration of everything, to the facial animations was inferior in Far Cry.

    Chaos Theory had some nice graphics, but were inferior to HL2 in many ways.

    I suppose it goes both ways depending on the companies preference. I allign more closesly with Valves rationale assuming this leak is legitimate, in that Source2 would be different from Source 2.0, but I could see where confusion could arise looking at different examples.

    This is great. the screens look great. Source is my favorite game engine of all and I love hearing more news about it's successor.

    coming up next, the trilogy box. featuring left 4 dead 3, portal 3, half life 3, team fortress 3, and counter strike 2 all powered by source 2.0 for only $133.33. Optimized for SteamOS and Steam Machine systems.

    Gabe infact said that there is a Source 2 in the works.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Source_(game_engine)#Source_2_engine

    So you can make instant comparisons between the old and the past.

    Like how BF3 remade Strike at Karkand to show how much have changed, like how BF4 remade BF3 maps to show off new "levolution" features, like how CSS and CSGO remade older CS maps (Dust, Office, etc), Crytek even remade the whole Crysis game just to show that Cryengine 3 was much superior than 2, the list goes on.

    tbh, Left 4 Dead 2 for me was the most good looking Valve Source game so they're just about right demo-ing it for Source 2.

    I was about to say at this point I wouldn't care if they made it in the original Source engine, but that would be a lie. HL3 has to be something else, something glorious. Hype is a bad thing, but HL ... is sort of above that.

    I guess that movie maker thingie they released is a beginning of a redesign. Practically, with that they have cutscene editor for source 2 already done.

    Oh, hey, xenocide, I got a better example for you:
    [​IMG]

    That said, I poked around L4D2, Portal, and Portal 2 and what was unique about them all is the lack of version information--both assembly version and file version are null.
