Sony: 'No new info' on Counter-Strike: GO Euro release date

Valve shooter remains absent from EU PlayStation Store

Sony has apologised to European PS3 owners still waiting for the PSN release of Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.


Addressing fan questions regarding the game's whereabouts after it remained a no-show following the latest PlayStation Store update, Jawad Ashraf of the PS Store team said: "Sorry. It's the standard stock response from me again - I have no information to share."

We contacted Sony about the matter today but received the same response. We've also left a message with Valve in the hope of getting an update.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive launched three weeks ago on PC and Xbox 360 globally, and on PS3 in the US, where it went on to top PSN sales in August.

Sony's European arm said on August 22: "We hope to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, and will let you know if the situation changes."

We said in our 8/10 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive review, which went live last month: "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a great introduction to the renowned shooter series, but veterans may feel there simply isn't enough new material here to justify the encore."
