IGN - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive First Look

IGN - It's easy to forget how unforgiving Counter-Strike can be. Valve's competitive online shooter truly rewards the skilled and stomps all over the newcomers. There are no Call of Duty-style kill streaks, no artillery barrages to call in or packs of dogs to let loose. It's just you, your guns, a few grenade types and your ability to react. Map knowledge, teamwork and quick reflexes are the only things that matter.

"On the PS3, players can use the game controller, the PlayStation Move motion controller or even a mouse and keyboard." "PS3, Mac and PC players will be match-made against each other, clumped by skill, regardless of input device or platform" - Kotaku ( http://kotaku.com/5834542/a...

Why has IGN just totally left this bit out?

OMG that´s awesome indeed that made my day everyone´s day.

buddymagoo4657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

CS:GO? Maybe it could also be a portable game for the PSv that would be cross-platform? That would be amazing if so.

MaxXAttaxX4656d ago (Edited 4656d ago )

As you may know, keyboard and mouse are huge to them when it comes to first person shooters. So when you have a console like the PS3 being able to use these.... well, you get the idea.

But even, so, I'd prefer the comfort of using my controller(IMO).

Friggin awesome! I was looking for that everywhere today. I saw the reports on Valve wanting to do that with 360 and was wondering if PS3 would get it.

Such great news, now I'm buying it for sure!

lol @ BattleAxe's comment

"not for noobs? I'm not buying"

BattleAxe4657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

LoL, I would mop the floor with you anyday, anytime, any place and on any game. Besides, back when you were playing "run and gun" CounterStrike with an Aim Bot, I was playing Socom series on PS2, which is far more hardcore and tactical then this game ever was. Its unfortunate that Zipper has F**ked things up so bad for Socom on PS3, that CounterStrike is the only thing that comes close to the Socom experience on PS2 this generation, albeit not as good.

I'm a big fan of the original SOCOM and SOCOM 2 as well (hell I beta tested PS2 online with SOCOM beta) but the comparison here simply doesn't exist. SOCOM is not "more hardcore" than CS. They are not comparable at all.

PS saying CS is "run and gun"..... implying SOCOM isn't? Don't make me laugh.

I love VALVE for loving ps3 fans

qwertyz4657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

they don't you can love SONY for being OPEN enough to let valve do what they want. MS is yet to open up at all.

You should be giving sony credit for this NOT valve you know that the only thing Gabe Newell prefers about ps3 is that sony has made it an open platform ? everything else he supports 360 he even said that MS just has to get comfortable with STEAM and they'll let it come to 360, he's not being harsh on MS for being closed because he loves their console just doesn't like some of their rules.

MS will eventually let steam come to 360, they already said they where in talks with devs about allowing free to play games come to 360 once they let steam come over you'll see that Gabe would start riding their d*cks once again. Gabe loves pc and the 360 is just like a pc. remember all the crap he said about ps3 when it first launched.

BattleAxe4657d ago (Edited 4657d ago )

The weapon purchase system will be the only reason I don't buy this. Its too bad because this will be the game that Socomers like me have been waiting for.

RedHotChiliPepaSpray4656d ago

because buying guns with money you earned in game is for noobs...
