Valve: Counter-Strike Global Offensive Cross-Platform Play "Our Goal

A new video interview on PC talks with Valve honcho Gabe Newell about DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive during Gamescom. At around the 15:00 mark they ask if Counter-Strike Global Offensive will support cross-platform gaming like Portal 2 does between PC and PS3, and he explains that this is their goal:

That's certainly our goal. We never want to create these 'islands of players.' You have to be sensitive to control differences, and make sure you're accommodating that, but, you know, our view is players should be able to play as part of a community on whatever device they can. You know, sometimes there are contractual, or other issues that make that hard, where somebody, a platform holder doesn't want you to do that for whatever reason, but that's always out preference. is to let customers play and be part of the larger community.

I find great pleasure in making pricks like you angry or even slightly annoyed. You are a know-it-all prick and this triggers my urge to troll you. Nobody likes a know-it-all! I'm sure that you find me to be completely obnoxious. I'm just giving you a dose of what you do naturally.

I find you more to be a "who?" than anything.
Seriously, who?

Edit - Oh, you're a second personality. One that plays friendly while OldSchool plays mean. You're your own good cop/bad cop! It's hard to play Robin Hood, though, when your posting history here is all childish insults. You can't really take the higher ground of "I'm giving you what you take" when being nice and civil is your exception, not your rule, and when you're one of the most aggressive posters here.

Are you serious? You are by far, the biggest troll here! Your 1000's of posts history proves it for anyone willing to read it. I have argued in maybe 20 posts since I joined. You don't have the luxury of comparing me to your total number of trolls.
