"We're watching Lord of the Rings [Battle for Middle-earth II] going to 360 very closely," Moravek told the site, referencing the recent console port of another fantasy RTS game. "Because if it's successful, I think there's a good chance we could bring Company of Heroes and even Dawn of War over."

I can't find the original Gamespot article, but the forum post where I saw this is boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message

MANNAHNIN: I know two guys who have had to quit the game cold turkey because the time investment required by it caused problems with their family life.

Better hope so, GW could use a quick influx of cash to sucker ^H^H^H^H^H^H convince stockholders they actually have some R&D going on.

Looking for the Empire spearmen from the Warhammer sixth edition box set (empire vs orcs) Must be unpainted and in good condition. Also looking for MIB Empire State Troops boxes.

Looking for Battle for Macragge and Black Reach Tactical squads, unpainted and unassembled.

That'd be sweet. Relic has already published a couple of 360 titles. They've got their feet wet.

We call my PC the Dinosaur.  It 's so old it might as well have a crank start.  I'd love to play Dawn of War, and I might just buy my friends copies of Battle for Middle-Earth II, birthdays and Xmas and Kwaanzaa, just to get the sales up and help me play as the Blood Ravens.

Eugh. DoW I enjoyed, but porting it to a console... call me a cynic, but I just don't think RTS's work on consoles, and I don't really see how you can get around the fact that an analogue stick is not as fast or accurate as a mouse, or that face and trigger buttons just don't match up to hot keys.

I believe this was tried previously with Command and Conquer, and failed miserably. It's possible Relic might get a RTS to work on the 360, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

EA has done it.  LoTR: BFMEII plays VERY nicely on the 360.  We've got a group that plays fairly often on Live.

The Wii has some potential with a RTS using that pointer remote.

I hadn't thought of the Wiimote... hmm... you could be right Kikko.

The PS3 has USB ports so it can take a mouse and keyboard.

We're not very big on official rules. Rules lead to people looking for loopholes. What's here is about it.

Of course so does the PS2, and they got soooo much use from them.

I saw video of Battalion Wars 2 on the Wii and they used the Wiimote(sigh) to point at units for selection and then use the analog controll to maneuver them.  Looked interesting.

Healing surges are for fools. Fools and liberals.
