Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will have cross-platform multiplayer between PC, Mac and PlayStation 3, Valve has confirmed.

The upcoming Counter-Strike title will also have both PlayStation Move and mouse and keyboard support for PlayStation 3 users.

Announced in an interview with Eurogamer, Valve founder Gabe Newell mentioned that the company has also considered trying to integrate Steamworks into the Xbox 360 version, but had struggled to convince Microsoft.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, or CS:GO, was announced earlier this month, but no release date has been pinned down other than an early 2012 window.

A range of new features, including new maps and ranked matchmaking were also announced for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the same time.
