“When bringing Counter-Strike to PS3 and Xbox, we wanted to make sure we weren’t ‘noobing’ it, or dumbing it down. The game has an entry point for new players in its Casual Mode, but it’s not ticking off the top players. We think that if you’re really good with the controller, and you can match the fidelity of movement of the mouse and keyboard, then you’ll hold your own. If not, well, you’ll just be matched with people who play like you. We’re looking at changes that are about adding depth for skilled players, without adding complexity for the lower levels.” – Valve writer Chet Faliszek to Gamasutra.
