    is hosting counter strike (1.6 or source) possible using amazon s3? Amazon would certainly be the cheapest in terms of GB usage and transfer, but I'm still not sure if it is possible. Anyone have any knowledge on this subject?

    thanks

    No since S3 is just storage (I think, I've never used it). To run Counterstrike you'd need a dedicated server.
