Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Misses Launch on Euro PS3

While U.S. Counter-Strike fans on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC are busy enjoying the official launch of Global Offensive, European PS3 fans are left in the dust.

Global Offensive, after launching in the U.S. yesterday, was supposed to go live in Europe on the EU PlayStation Store. Unfortunately, it never did.

So far, Sony hasn't answered the reason why Global Offensive has yet to hit the EU PSN, or give out a new release date. This is the comment that the company released in regards to the issue: "Unfortunately Counter-Strike has not been made available on the European PlayStation store today, and we apologise to those of you who were looking forward to playing it. We hope to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, and will let you know if the situation changes."

The possible alternative for EU PS3 players is to maybe get Global Offensive for PC or Xbox 360, where the game has launched. Short of that, it looks like they're stuck waiting at the mercy of Sony EU.

    Maybe it won't be plagued with aimbots and wallhacks on launch day like the PC one is/was. Pretty sad how many there are. Look on Youtube, its sickening.

    Aimbots get banned very quickly. Wallhacks on the other hand can go uncaught for a long time. The thing about wallhacks is if you don't have wallhacks yourself, you won't be able to tell that other people have wallhacks so you can play in blissful ignorance.
