    I kind of doubt it's going to be free to play. I find it unlikely that they're going to implement hats or whatever cosmetic items they want in such an e-sports related game that the previous Counter-Strike games has been.


    Could be something worth looking out for though.

    Counterstrike was good when it was nothing but a mod of half-life and still free to play. It became an utter piece of garbage the second valve got its hands on it.

    Nice, But it wont be F2P for a while, IMO, They should do what they did with TF2, make it F2P after it gets popular

    If they make guns where you have to buy them then with money then there goes the franchise.
    It should be exactly like the others, with maybe a hat system.

    This isn't confirmed especially since that site has an email pointing to @gmail instead of @valve

    I'd still wait for an official Valve announcement.

    But if this is what I think it is, it sounds like Counterstrike for XBLA and PSN... And PC apparently. I don't know why they'd bother with the PC version, Source and the original game are still some of the most popular PC games around.

    I'm interested as well.
    I play 1.6 pretty frequently, never tried Source.

    And I don't think it'll be free to play. Not without hats.

    Yeah, Valve just updated their Facebook page saying it's legit.

    I'll make a front page post for it.
