Hey everyone, been awhile since I've posted around here.. but I noticed everyone (including myself), being frustrated at the release of this game today. Apparently, it's out for PC and PS3 today, and 360 tomorrow.
Check their blog: http://blog.counter-strike.net/index.php/2012/08/4571/
Upper right-hand corner says "Available 8-22 on Xbox Live Arcade."

Kinda blows, but at least we know it should by out by tomorrow for sure :) Hope this helps ease the frustration.

I think we can blame Microsoft for this. I don't think they'd have it release any other day of the week. It's also somewhat Valve's fault for not announcing the damn release date clearly for Xbox users. I went ahead and got the PC version cause I feel like playing it right now. I'll buy the Xbox version some day, but I don't feel like waiting longer than I thought I would be.

Why exactly does M$ only release arcade games on Wednesdays? There has to be a reason, either that or M$ is just trolling us.

Think he meant AM. Most Arcade games release around 2 or 3 AM PST. Unless something has changed in the last few weeks.

I'm kind of glad it's coming out tomorrow, because my first class starts at 12:00 PM and I should be able to start the download since it will probably be 2GB+ and I get home around 4:30.

Well I've played about 6 hours of the PC version now and I absolutely love it. It's good ol' Counter-Strike, but up to date graphically. The new modes are fun too. I think I'd enjoy it more on console to be honest and my friend's PC can't handle the game well so he's buying it on console too. I guess I'll have two copies. :p

Hey, I'll be one of the only people who can compare them without bias.

I'm already playing it on PC so no rush for me. Not sure if I'll get this on XBLA, if the achievements are doable and heaps of people play I might pick it up.

For UK users search bing for "counter Strik" with no E. The third one along was the trial version for me, download that and then unlock the full game from the menu of the trial for 1200MSP.

I hope this helps

Okay so this might not work for some, as said above previously but I'm in the UK, on the new dash beta. What you wanna do is search on the games marketplace for 'counter', go to the right until you see a controller icon, half shaded and half white below the CS:GO cover. That's the trial. It's super slow but hey I'm not complaining, at least I know I have it now.
