    RTS on a console is just so wrong!!!
    Sure way to fail the game, unless there are plans for it to support mouse and keyboard on the console :geek:
    Cant see me trying to control a hoard of units in the 100's with a game pad.

    I say, keep street fighter, mortal combat and similar fighters on the console and keep RTS for the pc :thumb:

    RTS games traditionally port horribly to the console market, not enough buttons.

    So far I havent seen a good RTS port for console. Back in the days C&C for PS1 was horrible and it hasnt changed much IMO. Lets see how this one turns out.

    No I have not, im kind of anti Halo, so had no interest in Halo Wars at all.

    I've yet to see a console pull off an RTS, guess ill go get up to speed on Halo Wars interface then.

    the only way they *MAY* successes with a console RTS is to design around the console interface. that's why Halo War's interface may seem to work.

    but the true way to play a RTS is still on PC, with a 8800GTX :D

    Has there ever been a successful RTS for console? Unless there's a different controller, I can't imagine this working.

    Being an RTS fan I've always waited with hope for a decent RTS to grace the console market. My dreams were answered back in 98, when the original C&C was ported to the N64. They made it all 3d, and it was absolutely fantastic to play. The only downside was that the N64 didn't support the cutscene movies. The cartridge weighed a tonne though and I believe they used a 256 meg one to hold all the mission objective sound bites.

    What were we talking about again?

    Of course you forget about the new keyboard plugin widget for the 360 that clips onto the base of the controller, that would give us all the buttons we need.

    And its nice too.

    If there is no Keyboard and mouse support, then forget it. Or if there is no mouse and MSN pad support, then forget it.

    You cant play these games with joypads, and how many poor sales on the console versions is it going to take before they realise its all down to the input devices that make up those extra sales.

    I would of got C&C 3 on 360 if it supported keyboard and mouse. The console has the power, just not the correct input device.

    My PC wont play Supreme commander and Id love to be able to get it on 360 but I doubt it will happen.

    Atleast the PS3 version could use a M+K setup (hopefully)

    In regards to the 360 port: I personally don't like ports "in general", so tbh I would be in favor of a PS3 version since it would have to be built from the ground up......but that's my opinion.....whether that would affect the game negatively idk...I'm no game developer.....

    I've got supreme commander and it's ok.... Can't see it making a big hit on a dull boring console with it's powerful 128mb video card.
