Yeah, it's more of a remake than a sequel. I also heard that PS3 and PC players can play against each other, but Xbox players are against each other.

There's only a few problems I'll see with that allowance of cross-platform multi-player between PC to PS3.
  1. The allowed script changes for your configuration will be downsized.
  2. Modifications themselves may cease to exist, or just not be nearly as changeable.
  3. The usual FPS port issue that the majority of games within the recent years have suffered from, being that the PC version is just a console port.
  4. General update/support will be more functioned towards console users.
  5. Matchmaking, enough said.
  6. Downloadable content, such as maps which have always been free for CS:S will more than likely be additional costs.

Then again, this is just me nitpicking at tiny things that bugged me a lot when COD:WaW and MW2 came around and killed off my interest/hope that PC FPS gaming would still be a decent, advancing, competitive atmosphere.

The higher graphics quality is the only thing appealing with this, as CSS was slightly dated.

Besides that it seems like the same game, better graphics engine (which hopefully doesn't break the gameplay) and a stupid molotov addition.

But remember ampzz, it's Valve. They usually have free DLC.

Well I've never played any version of Counter Strike, but I'll probably pick this up (depending on the price).

Probably not buying at all, but if i do, i won't buy it before the price drops below 10 Dollars.

Do you have any idea what the word "port" means? Just asking.

A "port" is when a game is originally developed for use on one system, and then later it is changed to work with a different system. When used in a derogatory manner it indicates a feeling that the developers either should have upgraded something (Specifically when the port is released well after the original) or to indicate that they are ignoring the second system's capabilities and restrictions when moving it over, as in this case.

Still have condition zero but never play it. Still reminisce about the good old days having CS lan parties in programming and "research" classes. Might get this, seems decent.

Good point.

@Topic:
It still looks like Counter Strike: Source to me. They should give it a BF3 like feeling. :D

Disregarding my first post, they aren't going to change anything. It was done on purpose to keep the counter-strike feeling. I mean if CS:GO had a BF3 like feeling, it won't be Counter strike anymore. (Except the Molotov)

For me it looks like CS 1.6 + BF 3 graphics - dedicated servers*.
Valve again proves it's always hungry for money, huh?

* - remember the massive dissapointment after CoD:MW2 came out?

Not sure if you're saying Valve is "hungry for money" because CoD was a disappointment or because you didn't know Activision created all of the Call of Duty's. If you look at Valve as a whole I still don't see how they are greedy for money. For example Team Fortress 2 is a free to play game and it's one of Valves top games. Counter-strike is another game priced at $10.00 and it's even more popular than TF2. Valve produces quality games. Not to mention the other things Valve developed such as the Source SDK bases.

I don't understand why you think Valve is hungry for money because they are revamping an old school game that first came out in 2000 and CS source in 2004 (Unlike Activision who publishes a CoD every other year).

Back to what you were saying--do explain how "Valve again proves it's always hungry for money"

Firstly do take notice what is star in my post reffering to, then make stupid comments
Oher thing - CS and quality game? Not really a funny joke, I've heard better ones. Now they're doing a graphics update, adding new weapons and voila! - here's the OMFG NEW AWEOMSE GAME, BUY IT NOW. Not mentioning the fact CS series have the lowest teamplay factor among all shooters I've ever played (Enemy Territory, anyone?). I'm surprised that anyone outside poor eastern Europe actually plays this thing.

Remember the holiday event? Surprisingly our cool company predicted that hordes of people will jump out of dosh to buy some games, but they somehow didn't predict they could run out of possible prizes (funny fact: running out of something distributed only digitally) making it looking like "just buy games and gtfo". And this info was officially released 2 days before event's end. Saying it's a bit unfair is not enough.
Their 1$ = 1€ policy isn't good for me, either. Especially when I'm not € user (what is their charge, by the way? I heard of 45%). Double especially when I can get boxxed game much cheaper than in their "awesome" e-shop - HEY LOOK I HAVE COOL FILES. Not ncluding the fact I receive this cute little "This game is currently not available in your region" message for some games. Pathetic.

The amount of negative feedback is incredible. No one likes overpricing (except Valve, obviously).

Got in the beta last week, I'm enjoying it a lot. Anyone else been playing?
