Counter Strike: Global Offensive arrives… but not on PS3

Valve’s long-awaited multiplayer shooter Counter Strike: Global Offensive has finally been released… but not for PS3 owners.

Well, not in the UK anyway.

Although now available on both PC and Xbox 360 in the US and Europe, the game was a surprise omission from today’s European PlayStation Store update. It did make an appearance in the US, however.

"Unfortunately Counter-Strike has not been made available on the European PlayStation store today, and we apologise to those of you who were looking forward to playing it,” a Sony spokesperson confirmed.

We hope to resolve this issue as quickly as possible."

Counter Strike was originally released as a mod to Half-Life that proved so popular that valve eventually acquired the rights to the game.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive is a modified version of 2004 release Counter Strike Source. Indeed, it began life as a port of that title for Xbox 360.
