Cross platform play dropped from CS: Global Offensive

Users from PC and PS3 will not be able to play each other

Posted on
Valve has revealed that cross platform play has been removed from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Based on what it's learned from the beta, Valve has decided to strip the functionality in favor of offering constant updates for players on the PC and Mac.

"The beta has proved we want to update not just the beta, but the game itself post-launch frequently on the PC," Valve's Chet Faliszek said to
Joystiq. "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 planned for a summer release on PSN, XBLA, and PC.
