'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive' Comes Out for $15 on August 21st

It's coming to PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360 at the same time and for the same price.

Amidst all this E3 news, a poorly timed announcement from Valve got lost in the shuffle. A release date has been announced for their upcoming multiplayer shooter 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.' More interestingly, they also named a price.

When the game launches on August 21st, you'll be paying just $15. That's about as cheap as gaming gets, especially with a brand new title.

'Counter-Strike: GO' is, of course, hotly awaited on PC. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the PS3 and Xbox 360 launches though – there's a whole lot of competition there, and plenty of folks not familiar with the 'Counter-Strike' name.
