Kind of a bummer, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) has lost it’s cross play between the PC and Mac versions and the PS3 version. While PC and Mac players will still be able to play with each other using their native Steam versions, PS3 players will have to play with their own kind.
“The beta has proved we want to update not just the beta, but the game itself post-launch frequently on the PC. 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.” said Valve’s Chet Faliszek.
The Beta Survey is right here for those interested.
