No cross-platform play for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Valve has dashed any hopes of some cross-platform Counter-Strike action saying that they have dropped plans to allow cross-platform play across Steam for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
While they had initially intended that PS3, PC and Mac gamers could face off against each other in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, due to the feed back received so far from the beta, Valve has decided that cross-platform play will limit their ability to maintain a quality experience on all platforms and have decided to ditch the idea.
Valve' Chet Faliszek announced, "The beta has proved [that] we wanted to update not just the beta, but the game itself post-launch frequently on the PC. To do that we need to separate the platforms so one doesn't hamstring the other. So for that, we have removed the idea of cross-platform play - essentially make all platforms stronger by not mixing them."
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is due out later this year on PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360. The beta test phase is still going on and Counter-Strike fans can sign up to join on the official Counter-Strike blog.
