Why would anybody NOT want it for both PC and console??? Makes no sense to me why you would want it for just one or the other but not both...

Please stop with the "New EAW" polls Console and PC I guess anyway

 #3 - Posted by: TiberiousKirk (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 14:05

Go for Both. Don't leave any of the Fan base out. By the way I think the poll is bugged. it still shows no votes.

 #4 - Posted by: Edgecution (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 15:37

It works fine for me

 #5 - Posted by: Soveriegn (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 16:16

Why go for both? I mean a strategic game is mostly fun on a PC, a console doesn't give you a good feeling of the game. Lets just keep strategic games to the PC.

 #6 - Posted by: The_Farseer (Member) on 07-24-2008 at 21:58

I say PC only. The reason being that MOST games that are made for both platforms are limited in the aspects of user interface and camera control (to name a few things). Game developers aren't going to spend ages creating a unique play-style and interface for each platform...they are going to go with the one that requires the least amount of work and adapt that version to the opposite console...the result is ussually lacking. Plus, having it on a console means no Mods :'( (unless they release to PS3...)

 #7 - Posted by: Wattan (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 02:15

Yes indeed, but should that be a reason to not release it on a console? Or are the people who want it for pc jealous if EAW also comes on a console? I wouldnt play it on a console but that doesn't mean they shouldn't make it.

Try UAW on the 360, the Control Scheme for that is pretty sweet :)

 #9 - bleh - Posted by: LeaNikkaya (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 03:59

it's lucasarts. nomatter what we say, it's bound to be console only, as they've dropped the pc.

 #10 - Posted by: BFVHeartbreak1 (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 09:24

RTS is probably the worst genre of game to play on Console.

 #11 - Posted by: mike_1234567890 (Member) on 07-25-2008 at 15:43

pc and y would lucas arts drop the pc? thats gay beyond reason

Why the hell would you want another EaW? BTW, these polls are getting really old.

 #13 - Posted by: Edgecution (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 08:07

BTW, these polls are getting really old.

So very true

 #14 - Posted by: PloKoonReborn (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 10:34

how the hell can you play a complex strategy game like EAW on a console?!?!?!?! PC is the only way to go!

 #15 - Posted by: GreedoNeverShot (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 10:49

I would say PC and Wii. Mainly because the control scheme of the WIi could be simple... point ans click. As for mods there can be mods for any console, but they arent as mainstream or they are by the developers. So I guess PC only.

 #16 - pc only ftw! - Posted by: afcZman (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 11:54

putting the rts genre on the consloe is as much an epic PHail as the dvd rewinder lol

The Same way you play C&C 3 and UAW and someother RTS titles?

 #18 - PloKoonReborn - Posted by: Schofield (Member) on 07-26-2008 at 15:46

Complex strategy game like EAW? WTF!!! Did you get a special edition or something?

 #19 - Posted by: Rubric_Marine (Member) on 07-27-2008 at 16:01

Pc only thats the way to go

 #20 - PC & Console would be a bad idea... - Posted by: elite_trooper (Member) on 07-27-2008 at 16:39

PC & Console could work out if cross-platform play wasn't included. If it was, PC players would have the advantage, as it would offer obviously smoother controls and a better interface. So I'm gonna have to go with PC only! - EP-782

 #21 - plokoonreborn - Posted by: DarthBandon (Member) on 07-27-2008 at 22:53

play C&C3 first then then comment, if you havent tried it then you have no reson to be mad.:furious:

Alltough much is improved I find the console controllers not suited YET for RTS. you have like only 15 buttons with a console. On PC you have your entire keyboard + the mouse. I know you can add a keyboard on PS3 via bluetooth but all PC have keyboard vs few consoles have keyboards. But more and more RTS on PC are also going to the next gen console, for example WiC (=world in conflict, not world at war, world at war doesn't even get 1% if a pll would ask: what you like most?). Most ppl say for the graphics the next gen console (ngc) would be best but that's bullshit, A PC can do as good as a console (and even better) if every one would have a good performing computer (and that's the problem) but only a few do. Specially ppl with lap tops, most lap tops aren't made to play games and perform badly when, slowing down the game for others because of it. So that's why developers can make next gen console games much nicer looking, every that has a next gen has the same type of it, no different videocard, RAM, etc. They can take everything out of a next gen, while for PC they have to look what most ppl have and can play. I for see that PC games will slowly die out because of all the different PC.

PC only ofcourse. A console is no place for strategy games.

 #24 - Posted by: mike_1234567890 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 08:25

maby they can put ti on both and see if it would work.... and when they fail they will never try again

 #25 - Posted by: alx438 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 08:55

idk about this one i would prob try it on as console but still have a pc version ive heard of a new rts that is coming out on consoles called end war or something like that and thier control scheme looks pretty amazing it uses voice command to do somethings idk how well that will work but who knows. And if they did only make it for pc i would like to see more stratgey in it because its only rushing now. which means right now eaw would work on a console if you ask me the commad scheme is very simple if you think about it its just click and point the only things u use the key board is to do what you do if you dont have a mouse or to talk but headsets would work just the same. in short if they keep the control scheme like it is now then it could work on cosoles and pc but if they change it or add more stratagey then i would consider pc only

 #26 - alex438 - Posted by: DarthBandon (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 09:50

yea its by tom clancey it is the next gen stratigy game,

 #27 - Posted by: alx438 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 12:40

yeah thats it

 #28 - Posted by: Schofield (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 10:21

I highly doubt PC games are going to die out, computers are the future obviously, they take up a lot of peoples lives.

 #29 - Posted by: Mr_mystery (Member) on 07-31-2008 at 15:23

I think it would be way cool to have a cool star wars RTS for the nintendo DS. You could like use the pen to select ships, and make them move or attack by touching another place or unit on the touch screen. The only bad thing about that is that you can't download mods to it.
