Oh glorious news my friend.
Counterstrike: Global offensive will allow crossplatform PC/PS3 play.
Valve has already worked steamworks and crossplatform play into Portal 2, which is interesting. But you can’t shoot each other in the face, so nothing great. Microsoft won’t allow it to be done on xbox because they have to lock down everything.
Now it does say the the PS3 users will be allowed to use mouse/keyboard, but will some of you guys who say gamepads are just as good at shooters please indulge me in a duel with your gamepads once it comes out? Now we’ve got the chance to prove it.
Assuming they don’t put some ridiculous autoaim on it to compensate. Which they may do, because otherwise gamepad users will ragequit about 3 minutes into it and never play again. It’d be so silly to have autoaim in a counterstrike game - the entire fucking point of the game is aiming, and they take that away from you.
I just wish it included xbox since I know a lot of you have that, but if you would be so kind as to acquire a PS3 so that I could headshot you while doing backflips IRL while you twiddle with your little thumbsticks, I would appreciate it.
