Xbox360Cheats takes a look at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and says why it will be one of the must-have Xbox Live Arcade titles of 2012.
Either it'll suck on consoles or it'll suck on all platforms. The gun control in CS:S and in CS is just too precise for an analogue stick or 30fps. I remember CS on Xbox and it was horrible. If they change it to work on consoles then it will suck on PC.
Have you not played BF3? The cotrollers work well on the PC and 360. Its all up to the deveopers if they want to make the experinace equal to all platforms - Valve will not betray the PC fans and will not want to disspoint they growing numbers of console fans. If done right Valve can hit a home run and take some of COD thunder.
But CS doesn't have iron sights and therein lies the difference. It'll be interesting to see how Valve handles this.
I don't understand how weapons don't have iron sights in CS...do people in the counter-terrorist units normally fire from the hip?
the ps3 version i know will be having keyboard and mouse support so that rules out the sticks being rubbish, well i guess it has to be as it will be cross platform between pc n ps3 but i dont know if the 360 is getting keyboard support, i am sure they will try
We know the PS3 version has Mouse Keyboard support, However be honest here most PS3 users will prefer to play the game with a DS3 from the couch. You wont find them taking their PS3s to a desk so they can play it with Mouse and Keyboard, Its just not going to happen in most cases. Hence if most PS3 users are going to be playing with controller, it would be better if they didnt cross game, unless they actually are willing to play it with Mouse/KB. And lol before you end up calling me a Xbox gamer jealous of not getting cross game, i would like to say i dont own any of the consoles. PC gaming ftw.
Plus PS3 users will get to play with PC users, sorry Xbox. You just didn't have what it takes to make it.
I'm hoping that it is HUGE on the PS3 and forces next gen MS console to allow support for KB+M. If that catches on then things like RTS, MMO, and hack and slash games will be accessible in the future on consoles and open a whole new generation of KB+M players that would otherwise never game on a PC become acclimated to the control scheme.
@Neko_Mega Enjoy getting dominated by PC users, a controller doesn't have near the precision of a mouse.
CS is just.... not right for a controller. It just wouldn't work unless they totally changed the game.
... if it sells really well, it can be great fun for years, if the support is there. If it only sells to a small group of people, and too often we find empty servers, then we quickly turn our back on games like these cause MP-games are no fun without other players. Which is why it's such a shame that EA/Dice hasn't invested more time and effort in their excellent Battlefield 1943, which is still my favourite Battlefield gameplay-wise, but is now losing players online because of it only having 3 maps to play on... I feel if they had released a new good mappack every 3-4 months, it could have been the most popular online game on consoles, even now 2-3 years later.
Id rather play it on ps3 for cross platform Matches (ps3 vs pc)
Unless you play it with Mouse keyboard on the PS3, you will get slaughtered by PC gamers. This isnt a portal game where you are playing as Coop, Hence unless you are willing to play with Mouse keyboard and then accept that you are limited to 30fps, it will be like playing on a low end PC basically. Personally i as a PC gamer i wouldnt like console gamers on my team specially if they are going to be playing with a control pad. Hence crossplatform is actually a disadvantage to the PS3 gamer who want to play with a DS3 also to the PC gamers who dont want their team gimped by controlpad playing PS3 gamers. @below You will just be handicapping yourself and be a burden on your team in general.
Im after a challenge and i know mouse and keyboard has a massive advantage the fact ps3 offers cross platform play is a good enough incentive to get it on ps3
Lol it goes a bit like this: PC with Mouse Keyboard = Fast and furious gaming Console with Controlpad= Lazy relaxed gaming Its like taking a Kia to the track and hoping you stand a chance against some super car.
I hope there's an option to not play with PC players on the PS3, because it won't even be a contest.
Apparently, the guy above you (shikamarooo) thinks it'll only be a "challenge". I'm sure is aware of how unfair it'll be, so they'll have PS3-only lobbies. They have to in order to make sure they don't lose part of their fanbase.
Yep i would hope both the communities get the option not to cross game, as PC gamers wouldnt like controlpad weilding players on their teams either, it would just put the team at a disadvantage.
well the ps3 version can use K&M too I believe? If it's anything like UT3 (which supported k&m on ps3) you could check an option when creating the server. Chances are the matchmaking will have different playlists for controller only, cross platform, single platform etc etc
I'm sick of people thinking keyboard and mouse can slaughter a controller. when this game comes out, I challenge any pc gamer on here and I'll take a squad of ds3 players. then we'll put this urban legend to rest. I have a gaming rig before you all attack me with the benefits of kb/m. @peeps killzone 2
With no aim assist? controllers can still be good for FPS but I believe a lot is too do with the generous aim assist in games. If there wasn't any issues with controllers in fps there wouldn't be aim assist and yet every FPS on consoles has it... what does that tell you. So are you saying without aim assist? In which case which fps have you been playing on consoles recently that doesn't use any form of aim assist.
1 decent counter strike player will annihilate an army of controller users with a glock, if they all have AWPs.
It really isn't an urban legend. It's a simple fact that a good mouse will allow a user to react much more quicker than a controller ever would. This doesn't mean that using a mouse will instantly make you slaughter everything in sight. It's just that there is a higher amount of precision available with a mouse. Also, KZ2 doesn't prove much. It is a slower paced game. Now, if you can play as scout on TF2 with a controller (and do well), then that's something to brag about.
1 reason why it might suck... I've heard rumours that console versions wont have custom matches i.e. you can only play via matchmaking.
Its funny how these ps3 gamers are braggin about being able to ply with pc gamer. Sounds to me that u guys will just get owned, how much ppl r actualy gonna use KM? That would be very low. Xbox is plyin same level field so everybodys equal.
If this doesn't have split-screen, I'm not interested.
