Counter Strike: Global Offensive Debut Trailer

Although I am more than heartbroken about my dreams being crushed, my excitement for a new Counter Strike title is unmistakably high. That excitement has been amplified by the release of two CS:GO videos earlier today, the first of which is the official preview trailer:

If you simply cannot get enough of CS:GO, the video after the break will showcase some of the weapons that will be available upon the game's launch next year on PC, XBLA, and PSN. It seems like the PS3 version may be the best version for consoles as it allows for keyboard and mouse support and cross-platform play with PC and Mac. CS:GO for 360 will be terribly lonely.

It did not dawn on me until recently, but Call of Duty is now a direct competitor to Counter Strike and both series have a rabid fan following. I wonder if the same level of rivalry and bickering seen over Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 will come to light over these two series in the next few months. CoD has console loyalists, ready to yell obscenities into their headsets from the couch, but CS has PC diehards, and they have what I hear are "1337 h4x0rz". I am not sure what a h4x0r is or why there are 1337 of them, but they certainly sound formidable. Call of Duty fans beware, the bomb has been planted and you did not buy the defuse kit.
