Official Xbox 360 Thread

#1 Edited by mubress (1517 posts) -

Thought I'd see what kind of interest this game's going to get on 360, for myself I could play it on PC but tbh I've always wanted to play CS on a console. I know that a big part of the game is the precision aim that a mouse and keyboard provide but it's also the style of gameplay that sets it apart.

So, if you want to find someone to play with then just post here and (hopefully) someone will respond ;)

I'll also make a table to help keep track of people so if you want your information to be included then please post these 4 things:

  1. Giantbomb Name
  2. Gamertag
  3. Location
  4. Headset Status

It does not seem to be out yet in the US of A.

EDIT: Well, Wikipedia says it is, but in the marketplace it just has a "rate" option.

I had no idea that this was being released on the 360. If there is no GB group for this on PSN, I'll end up joining you.

I kid. Counter Strike with a controller is going to be so much fun.

I wouldn't suggest playing this on the PS3 unless you plan on using a keyboard/mouse, because if you're playing on a controller, the mouse people are going to dominate.

Updated the table.

I almost called it the unofficial official thread, would you have preferred that? ;)

#13 Posted by kiggsworthy (1 posts) -

Can anyone investigate the split screen / system link options? Are either supported in any capacity?

As much details as possible would be greatly appreciated!

Is anyone else finding this unplayably laggy?

5 games in a row where I joined and had probably 4+ seconds of input lag.

I've heard this from some people which is odd since I played all morning and into the afternoon with no discernible lag on my end the entire time. Although I could hear people saying stuff about lag in the same game I was in. So I don't know what is up with that. I'm in NYC, maybe it's where you're located?

Add me to the list of players.

@Mahonay: @TheDigitalistic:

Im hearing the same things in game, but I am not experiencing anything on my end. The only thing that I have happen is that occasionally the game will freeze and I cant move. The only way i've found to fix it is to dump the game to the dashboard and re-launch.

You can add me to the list.

Table Updated!

Btw, is anyone else using the 'static' crosshair because for some reason it reverts back to dynamic everytime I stop playing. All my other preferences stay saved so I'm not sure what the problem is :(

I'm having this issue as well, I've deleted and re-downloaded it but still none of the buttons worked in game. What the hell is going on?

Table Updated.

I know a lot of people are sceptical about CS on consoles, so for anyone who isn't sure whether they'll enjoy playing on a console (and more importantly on a pad) I can tell you that as someone who played 1.6 and source and was convinced that playing without a mouse & keyboard would severely reduce my enjoyment of the game, I can tell you that having played for a few days and gotten used to the controls (I played COD4 on console but haven't played an FPS with a pad for a few years) it feels just like the Counter Strike I used to love :)

If anyone else agrees then please post as I think there are still a lot of people unsure about playing CS on consoles who can't/don't want to play on PC but still want to play this game.
