Well it’s not turning out to be a good day for the PS3 is it..

It has been announced overnight that the latest Red Alert title is not going to be making it onto the PS3, apparently a few days ago it was reported that the PS3 version may be struggling a bit but at this time I can’t find any official statement on why it has been cancelled…

But PS3 fans shouldn’t despair, you get to miss out on the horrific acting that is Red Alert…

    I’ll play SC2 instead. But damn, was looking at this one for some casual airchair RTS. Maybe the Dolla spoke?

    The PS3 is yet to see a RTS, correct me if I’m wrong. In my oppinion its no big deal since RTS is best played on PC. I did play C&C3 on xbox360 but the PC is where it’s at when it comes to RTS.

    There are many PS3 fans that are banging on about mouse/kb support as a plus on the PS3 side. They’d happily whip out one of those on the coffee table while playing Red Alert 3 on their HD screens.

    Yes, i know, it defeats the purpose of a console (well that’s what Mr MS says), but let’s face it, the setup as i’ve described would have put the PS3 ahead of the 360 with an RTS and it’s a pity they don’t get to test the theory.

  • we’ll just have to wait and see how Endwar will change the RTS genre on console 😈

    I’d rather try and play it with the controler than playing it with a keyboad and mouse on a coffee table. But if you have a PS3 setup like a computer at a desk, then I’d go for it.

    Halo Wars is going to put the RTS in console 😎

    You don’t need a mouse and keyboard for an RTS. Take a look at Universe at War on the 360

    Yeah I agree. Unless your getting all fancy with a tray on your lap and one of those compact logitech mouse/kB sets. But still, that belongs in the study. I’d also rather try the controller thing… or I would’ve that is…

  • There are still 2 RTS coming to the PS3 so don’t worry. They’re also possibly to of the most influential: World in Conflict and Endwar.

    Has it been canned, or just put on hold/delayed? πŸ’‘

    It’s been put on hold, not cancelled. Still no skin off my back, never was a big RTS fan. Endwar may just change that though. πŸ˜‰

  • Any console RTS has to use Squad based mechanics, not individual ‘models’, in other words, has to be more dawn of war and less Starcraft.
