Forums - Gaming Discussion - New PS3 Exclusive - RTS Coming to the PS3 - Halo Wars Killer?

Now I'm quite curious why a developer would choose a western genre on the console with the smallest userbase. Also, if Halo Wars succeeds in bringing (or creating) an console RTS userbase, then wouldn't you want to release that game to please them instead of trying to create a new userbase on another console? The game will be launched months after the release of Halo Wars so it wouldn't be competiting against each other but instead complementing! You could go as far and say that it would be riding the Halo Wars wake.

These reasons would suggest that the 360 would be a way better console for the game to succeed financially and that the only reason why they wouldn't is because Sony is moneyhatting them (HA! Yeah I went there!! Bite Me!).

So with Halo Wars not even on the market, Is Sony already trying to create a "Halo Wars" killer??

 

These are many of the same reasons it was dumb for MS to buy JRPGs for the 360, and why, if the Japanese devs actually wanted SALES, the games should have been on PS3.

XBots spent all last gen trashing gay RPGs AFAIR.

God, you and Squilliam are in crappier-than-starcraft OVERDRIVE.

Halo Wars hasn't even hit the market, but developers have already jumped on the bandwagon on what they believe to be the next big thing on Consoles! What Halo:Combat Evolved did to FPS's is what Halo Wars is looking to do with RTS's.

Seed Studios has confirmed that it is working on a new PS3-exclusive real-time strategy titled Under Siege.

The game will be based on an "original world" utilising "unique gameplay elements and a control scheme designed with a console controller in mind".

Bruno Ribeiro, lead designer on the project, said on the game's official website: "We are also working on implementing a large number of multiplayer and community features with special emphasis on user-generated content."

"In the coming months we will share with you info on many of these features, as well as the work involved in creating them," he added.

Under Siege will be launched at some point during 2009, while the eagerly-anticipated Xbox 360-exclusive RTS title Halo Wars will be released on February 27.

Nice, but why didnt you continue your bolding to include user generated content? LBP and UT3 shows that it is important in the console realm now.

@dodece - Sometimes less is more.  You don't need a thousand words to convey a simple thought.  I disagree with your post.  Gebx did some fairly straightfoward trolling by trying to downplay a PS3 exclusive and elevate Halo Wars as the gold standard of console RTS.  This was obvious to everyone but you.  We have made our points and we are moving on. 


Thanks for the input, Jeff.

Hehe, wouldn't UT3 and LBP prove that user generated content isn't a software seller??

The only difference I see between your post and Dodece is that he's saying PS3 fanboys are downplaying Under Siege and your saying I'm downplaying it.. actually your saying I'm trolling. But I've read my thread mutliple times and I can't see any lines or phrases saying anything negative about Under Siege.. so I'm a little confused on the new meaning of "trolling"...

RTS on consoles = not fun no matter how you tweak the controls.

 

You havn't played Halo Wars yet .. I'm sure some ignorant people said the same about FPS on consoles before Halo.

GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Disruptor, Medal of Honor, etc......they all say hi

 

And Timesplitters! (by only a few months)

 



The difference is Under Seige is a new IP, Halo Wars is milking the Halo franchise to get high sales.

"Killer" i dont think so.
