Valve Software has announced that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will officially launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on August 21st.
The game is set to be priced at aroud $15 on all platforms and will feature more character, weapons, maps and content than is currently available in Global Offensive's beta. In keeping with their tradition of being amazing, Valve is introducing cross-platform play into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. While no specific details are being released at this time, we are reminded of the PC-PlayStation 3 compatibility in Portal 2.
In that game, players on PlayStation Network were able to connect with players using Steam on PC to play Portal 2 cooperatively. We're assuming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will harness that same technology, although whether it will be exclusive to PlayStation 3 remains to be seen.
