    Starcraft 2 coming to Consoles?

    Flying around the rumor-mill today is a could be hint that Starcraft 2 could be coming to consoles.



    Microsoft Retail Zone, which is a website interface used to further educate employees of electronic retail stores. While taking the quiz for “Universe at War”, he stumbled upon a cool little gem that might come to pass.

    6. Which of the following are defining features of Universe at War?

    1. The first ever Xbox 360/PC cross-platform RTS
    2. Tactical dynamics create the best RTS until Starcraft 2.
    3. Truly unique factions and customization
    4. Free one-month Games for Windows LIVE Gold subscription
    5. All of the above
    6. None of the above

    Could this be an unintentional sign given by Microsoft that the long awaited Starcraft 2 will be coming to Xbox 360? As some might remember, Blizzard allowed ports of Starcraft to both the Nintendo 64 and the Playstation. Ports of recent PC RTCs have come to 360 such as Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2, and Command and Conquer 3. Both have been received well by console gamers because of their impressive control schemes, previously a massive hurdle to jump for previous RTS console ports. Whether this is simply a misunderstanding or not, this is an exciting rumor nonetheless.

    Ya i was trying to get this one up but the Digg Effect is crushing their website. Anyway, I love me a good rumor and this one is a HUGE win for the Microsoft camp if it is true...especially if they'll get exclusivity from Nintendo and Sony.

    Obligatory StarCraft II pic...because it looks flippin' sweet!

    Yeah I had to navigate to their homepage and find it from there.

    I really don't understand why they haven't released an official Mouse/keyboard type controller specifically for RTS's. Is it crossing tooo much into PC terrority?

    Needs full res!

    ugh

    I'm sure consolers could easily and quickly surround a group of protoss and redirect them, but I need my mouse and hotkey.

    I have no problem with fps on console in fact I prefer it. But rts on a console just plain sux. Yes, I know Im a 360 fanboi but, damn its hard playing an rts with a controller.

    It doesn't actually look intensive enough to require a 8800, in my opinion.

    World in Conflict has more detail than that and it runs fine.
