Counter Strike: Global Offensive confirmed for Summer launch!

Earlier this week at Microsoft's showcase event, Counter Strike: Global Offensive developer has confirmed that the highly anticipated CS:GO is set to launch this Summer for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Hurray! Now for the bad news, cross-platform play is dropped from CS:GO. So many things could be explored with cross-platform play, and it would have been one of the first FPS games to support it, but it probably would just take too much time, work and effort, even for Valve developers.

I'm not too bothered about not getting any cross-platform love from the developers, since I am, and will be playing anything on the PC. However, it would still be really cool to be able to play with other peoples who are on their consoles, and to see how the game-play will turn out. I guess this is kind of a good thing since the developers would be able to focus more on the development for each platform.

Sign up for the beta for CS:GO here!

  1. It would be pretty badass to play it cross platforms, too bad it wont happen.:(

  2. mite buy but only if its 13 dollas

  3. It'd be interesting to see a game with cross platform play but I guess they're just not ready for that yet.

  4. Wonder if they'll capture that same magic this time around with MW around.

  5. Super excited, I'm gona play for the first week straight when it comes out!

  6. It's a shame they don't sort out cross-platform games...but this game will be will awesome

  7. Can't wait for CSGO, epic!
    Sucks that they dropped the cross-platform play.

  8. YES. Finally a good FPS for the 360 coming out! Was getting worried that all the good FPS's would be going to only PC after I played the Blacklight beta

  9. We all know what would happen if cross-platform stuff was a reality.

    All the console players would be butthurt as they get destroyed by the PC gamers.

  10. I'm so bad at CS:Source, doubt I'll be any better at this

  11. I'm interested in it, as long as it combines the best parts of 1.6 and Source.

  12. should be fun for you game lovers :)
