I would recommend changing this with machines or platforms because most people doesn't consider pc as a console but more as a platform.
The best would be machines.

7: What are the current game modes?
A: Casual, Competitive, Demolition, Arsenal and Hostages.
This doesn't entirely make sense. There are casual and competitive modes, but you play hostage and demolition within this modes. And arsenal is separate. So, actual game modes would be 'Arsenal, Demolition and Hostages.' with two ways of playing them, I'd say.

10: Is there going to be Cross-platform gameplay?
A: Well, this was announced, but seems like the idea was dropped to give "more power" to the consoles.
I'll try and find the source again, but I remember reading that there definitely isn't cross-platform play. Something to do with the way they want to manage CSGO on PC.


"St. Mark" should also be spelt "St. Marc"

You can also lower the requirements for the CPU. I have a duel core 2.3ghz and it runs absolutely fine. I also run it on my laptop with a 6470M with no issues, which has about third of the power of that 3870 according to PassMark. Perhaps have a 'minimum' requirements and a 'recommended' requirements.
