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

A new video interview on PC Games.de 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've never heard any debate.

It's an oft repeated forum canard that people can become as good with a controller as a mouse and keyboard player. The truth is that people might become good enough to compete against other people using controllers but going up against kb/m users will be disastrous.
I more look at it as there is a 1000 times higher learning curve on using a controller in a FPS vs. a KB&M.

But I do think you are right. On a level field (no auto-aim, larger hit boxes, any of that bullshit) a well trained KB&M user will drop a just as skilled controller user. Simply on the grounds the KB&M user has better control of how fast he can move the camera around. The controller user would be locked into a fixed speed he can look around and if he increases this speed (if even possible) his accuracy will take a hit.

And as for the thing about Microsoft not doing cross platform games where your input device makes a big difference because of the differences in KB&M vs. controller. Ill second that. Wish I had a link to the article. Only cross platform game I know of is FFXI. But being a MMO the input isn't that big a deal.
