Valve Aiming For Cross Platform Play With Counter-Strike: GO

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players should be able to play together no matter what platform they are using. That’s according to Gabe Newell, co-founder and managing director of Valve.

“We never want to create these ‘islands of players’,” he said in an interview with pcgames.de (and translated by Bluesnews).

“You have to be sensitive to control differences, and make sure you’re accommodating that, but, you know, our view is players should be able to play as part of a community on whatever device they can.”

Newell admits that there are difficulties in such a system, however: “You know, sometimes there are contractual, or other issues that make that hard, where somebody, a platform holder doesn’t want you to do that for whatever reason, but our preference is always to let customers play and be part of the larger community.”

Counter-Strike:GO is set for a 2012 launch on 360 and PS3.
