Ensemble claims to beat PC RTS controls with Halo Wars
November 24, 2008
Destructoid posted a little article on how Ensemble, developers of Halo Wars, is claiming that their console control scheme is going to be better than a mouse and keyboard. This is a plain lie, and in many circles is also called “bullshit.” Ensemble is going out of business as soon as Halo Wars is released, and any employees are being paid extra to stay onboard. This sounds like just some “clever” PR move to try and sell as many copies as they can to lessen the financial damages caused by closing a studio.
Not to be a skeptic of console gaming, but I highly doubt that this will be that magic game that finally revolutionizes console RTSes…keep looking.
