they cut it to 2 players because they wanted the player(s) to focus more on story and character development. but ironically enough the character development ultimately amounted to nothing anyway(I think I read that in the ign review, not certain though). not really sure why they made the same change on terrorist hunt. consistency perhaps? oh well. here's hoping a mod comes out that adds the other 2 slots, or perhaps more.

what is the point if getting inferior console version. at least on PC there is a chance of a mod that will add more player slots + plus better visuals.

i would understand if you don't have PC, go for it, but if you have good PC there is no point.

If the PC version is so "gimped" and if it's "consolized", then why not get it for the 360? I don't really wanna wait for mods . . .

Better graphics, mouse control, the add-on maps will be free, Steam version means no disc, etc. etc..

so according to you both versions are the same in gameplay? so why not get the cheaper version and still get an option of AA and AF, better controls with mouse?

more for less

But apparently the graphics are crap because it's "consolized". Extra maps aren't that important to me. They will be free in a few months so who cares? I loves me some Steam so that would be cool.

Depends. I'm comfortable with both controller and KBM so that doesn't matter to me. AA and AF? I'm not all about graphics. I like gameplay and fun factor.

Are the multiplayer level graphics details forcefully scaled back like Vegas 1 was?
