It's entirely a controller issue. MS and Sony have tried this too and to their great surprise *gasp* the console people always get utterly destroyed by PC players. So that's really not a whole lot of fun for them. So there's really no point in cross-platform play.

Cross-play only applies to PC/MAC and PS3. PS3 has KB/M support. So it's not a controller issue.


For cross-play to work, patches have to be synchronize released between PC/Mac and PS3. Valve can release patches at anytime on PC/Mac, but on PS3, patches have to be certified by Sony's QA before being deployed. This certification process takes time, and will hold back patches for PC/Mac. Therefore, not to hamper each other, it is best to drop cross-play.
