Lord of the Rings RTS headed to 360
Great news for real time strategy fans! EA is bringing their upcoming PC title, Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II, exclusively to the Xbox 360 console. The big question is how will a traditionally click heavy RTS control with a gamepad. EA's press materials try to assuage these fears:
"The game boasts a new and intuitive console-specific control scheme that will allow novice players to enjoy the game's signature strategy gameplay while giving expert players the flexibility needed to engage in a deeply complex strategy experience. Players will directly control hundreds of units in an attempt to defeat enemy armies, conquer new lands, and seal the fate of Middle-earth."
The game will also support high definition graphics, surround sounds, and Xbox Live so you "will be able to challenge friends online and engage in intense, action-packed real-time battles."

This is interesting... After Xbox 1 was released, and people became unbelievably sick with the sniper in halo 1, I made the statement that RTS's were possible on consoles because the sticks allowed the accuracy needed to select units. Not one person believed me over at teamxbox forums, so i hope this game turns out well. Maybe we'll see War3 released wth war2 on a bonus disk!?

I am so psyched.. The first game ruled and now the sequel on XBOX 360 will rock.. pirate boat battles, castle construction, and more.
