Then in a year or two, they will announce C&C: Red Alert 3.....or at least, they'd better. :D

I read once in some interview that they could do a wii port later on but it might be something else.

It's probably the standalone battlecaster they've been talking about since release.

I remember when EA brought that LotR strategy game to 360 and they said no wii version because the low resolution would make it impossible. So no wii version, just an expansion.

I'd put money on a Wii Port, like someone said above NGamer Magazine strongly hinted of a C&C port to the system several weeks ago.

If not that, a PC Expansion, the 'Revolution' bit pointing to a Red Alert style expansion?

When I first saw it on a 360 blog, I figured they're either going to add new units and maps, or more so allow you to move the camera anywhere you want to.

It obviously wouldn't have the same visual fidelity. Even if this isn't about a Wii port, I still want to see RTS PC people dabble in and experiment with the Wii.

Sounds good to me. I wouldn't mind seeing their attempt at a Wii version either, but I highly doubt that's going to happen.

I am afraid that if they decide to do a Wii port the game will be dumbed down, meaning less strategies and stuff, perfect for the casual. If they do a Wii port hopefully they will do it right.

Yeah, just like they would if they ever make it for any console, like the Xbox 360, or the Playstation, or the N64.

Any console RTS are "dumbed" down to a certain degree because of the limited scope of a traditional gamepad.

Trust me, I tried to argue against it myself before posting it. But strategy gaming is one thing, in fact the only thing, that would actually benefit from being on Wii.

Why would it have to be dumbed down? At least they could use a similar control scheme, as opposed to the bastard console RTS of recent times.

Did I say that the dumbing down is because of the Wii's fault? NO! Jezz people, stop being so defensive. What I meant was that lately it seems as if publishers consider that the Wii should get less complex games than those done the PS3 or x360. Obviously this is not the hardware's fault but the publisher's perception. This is why I hope that an eventual Wii port is similar to the 360 port, and not dumbed down.

The 360 version is similar to the PC version. It just has a different control scheme.

Well, EA just added some dumbed down controls together with thier EA Sports game on the Wii along with the "traditional" gameplay. I wouldn't mind if they dabbled it and dumbed it down a bit so long as the core game(as far as the console would allow) is still there since RTS is still a relatively serious gamer's game.

Of course, all this talk is moot since we don't even know what the announcement is about.

This is what I am hoping for. That the core game is still there and not some unrecognizable game with totally different strategies and such.
