No Counter-Strike with HL2 on 360 and PS3?

Fate of Source-powered, counter-terrorist vs. terrorist shooter on next-gen console unconfirmed

In a small news addition to VERY EXCITING word on Half-Life 2's manoeuvring onto Xbox 360 and PS3, it's currently in doubt whether Valve Software's Source version of the massive multiplayer game Counter-Strike will be included in or with the next-gen console versions of the dev's FPS sequel - according to IGN.

On PC, Counter-Strike: Source featured in the retail boxed version of Half-Life 2 and in Valve's 'Source Premier Pack' and 'Valve Complete Pack' purchasable on Steam. It may turn out that Counter-Strike: Source on Xbox 360 and PS3 will be offered as a free download to those who purchase Half-Life 2 if it's omitted from the next-gen HL2 boxes (what a crazy dream) or - and the cynic within says this is more likely - released as a separate paid-for product.

But we'll just have to wait and see.
