this concerns me too. Making cs console friendly would only HURT the game. Atleast for PC players and I doubt console players will adopt it unless they really do dumb it down to even more levels than source and try to cater towards a cod crowd... sadness all around

Valve makes all their money in PC gaming still. Consoles are the side project.

I guess some people here haven't been following Valve for too long. The source engine was created for HL2 with the intention that they would NEVER have to use another engine. Valves plan always was to keep updating the source engine, and not make a new one.

They see making a new engine as having to re-invent the wheel for every game you make, and something that cuts into the game development time, and ultimately the quality of the game. Agree with that or not, but this is why you will not see a game using anything but source in any foreseeable future.

a little over 1600 hours in CS:S... on one map... and counting. If CS:GO doesn't have breakmaps it's dead to me.

Make money off PC gamers, then make console focused games. Great use of our money ya think? Just saying Valve isn't motivated to make PC focused games any more, the Source Engine being sufficient for consoles doesn't help either. They could have the most flexible/modular graphic engine in the industry, doesn't mean they are putting it to use for the PC gamers, the ones who are generating all of that cash for them. I know they can add to their engine, but when? They'll probably update it just in time for the release of the new consoles.

I like Carmack, I like competitive gaming, and I put my money towards games I enjoy regardless of how simple they are ^_^

We all have different opinions on the matter and that's very understandable, but counterstrike is one of those games where graphics shouldn't take superiority over mechanics. I'm sure valve has finally learned their lesson since they've actually reached out to league officials and professional communities for CS:GO.
