RUMOR: Command and Conquer 3 coming to PS3 and Wii?

Here's another rumor to satisfy your hunger for all things curious and interesting -- Command and Conquer 3 might just make its way onto the PS3 and Wii, in addition to its upcoming release on the 360 and the couple-of-weeks-age release on the PC. Since the game is getting tossed around by EA, we're hardly surprised. About the PS3 version, Senior Producer Mike Glosecki said: "I don't see why it's not feasible," citing also how the controls are nearly identical.

The Wii version really does add a new breath of life to RTS titles -- in our opinion, it would be the best console version to get. Why? The motion sensor would really make moving around the map simple and highlighting groups would be a snap (just think, holding the trigger button and using another button to select specific troops, kind of like how ctrl+click works on the PC). Wait. Is it ctrl+click? The last RTS game Nick done played on the computer was Dune 2000. Well, you get the idea. The issue with the Wii version is the lack of power. The game won't look as good, says Glosecki. Which version would you guys ultimately buy if your PC somehow exploded into tiny bits?

2. If my PC blew up? I'd buy the version for the only "next-gen" (this gen?) console I cared to purchase. The PS3 of course!

3. if this game doesn't support keyboard and mouse on PS3, it can shove this up their you-know-where.

and for Wii users, are they going to dumb it down tho? and I don't think Wii will be fast enough to run this.

4. i would buy it if it had mouse and keyboard support. maybe a rental if it doesnt.

5. I would want to play it on NES with a Power Glove.

6. On Wii, the watered down graphics will surely be more than compensated by the use of the Wiimote.

7. I will require exactly:
1 Demo of this game
1 Bag of garlic parmesan kettle-cooked chips
1 Bottle of Jones Soda

At least the 360/PS3 versions will have "waggle" support due to supporting cameras(pointed at our crotches...get it? waggle?).

8. if it does come out on PS3 ill eat my hat (even though i dont own one).

9. >On Wii, the watered down graphics will surely be more than compensated by the use of the Wiimote.


Didn't they also say that about Far-Cry.

Wiimote doesn't not equal mouse and keyboard.

10. "Which version would you guys ultimately buy if your PC somehow exploded into tiny bits?"

Hmmm gee let me think about this... The major selling point of the game is the online skirmish mode. ONLINE!!! So I guess that would mean I would get it for the console with the BEST online capabilities. What a coincidence because that is the same system I will be picking it up for TODAY!!!

11. I'm thinking Bored was using hyperbole.

you might call it "hyperbole", I call it "Nintendo philosophy"

Posted at 3:18PM on May 9th 2007 by kingofwale

13. Cool if it comes out for th ePS3 I will get it for that instead of the 360 version.

Posted at 3:20PM on May 9th 2007 by Aaron

14. I definitive "maybe" but agreed, has to come with mouse and keyboard support (bluetooth may I add.... USB works great but no wires is better : )

Posted at 4:17PM on May 9th 2007 by Real Gambler

15. i use a wireless usb mouse and keyboard. it can't be that hard to add usb support. bluetoth would be great but i htink sony needs to firm that up on their side of things first (in the xmb) to see that in games.

16. "Didn't they also say that about Far-Cry."

No. In fact, I recall everyone saying the opposite about Far Cry: Vengeance, even before it's release.

"Wiimote doesn't not equal mouse and keyboard."

Because you would know, being the almighty God of Wii. Give me a break. Even if the Wiimote didn't equal mouse/keyboard for this game, how would you know? Did you play the currently non-existent C&C3 Wii game?

"you might call it "hyperbole", I call it "Nintendo philosophy""

Silly kow. It'd be "Nintendo philosophy" if Nintendo was the company making horrible games. They're not. Its a few third-party developers who just want to port everything over as fast as possible. You should know that, considering your original example was Far Cry. Unless of course you're implying that every Wii game is like that, in which case, you're a moron.

Yeesh. The guy acts like he's never seen a shitty third-party game before.

17. >Because you would know, being the almighty God of Wii.
let's go with the idea of deduction, shall we?

And you would know to disagree with me? Yeah, because FPS games on Wii works flawlessly like ones on PC with keyboard and mouse combo.

or because when you accidentally take the pointer off TV, you NEVER go into an endless spin like you do in CoD3. I wonder if the PC version does that with keyboard an mouse. hmmmm

18. "And you would know to disagree with me? Yeah, because FPS games on Wii works flawlessly like ones on PC with keyboard and mouse combo."

Really? And since when was Command and Conquer a FPS franchise?

"or because when you accidentally take the pointer off TV, you NEVER go into an endless spin like you do in CoD3. I wonder if the PC version does that with keyboard an mouse. hmmmm"

Again, you're talking about a game that, as of now, doesn't even exist. You make it sound like its impossible for a RTS on Wii to act similar to a PC RTS. As if that huge assumption wasn't enough, you decided to base it on a FPS title.

19. >Really? And since when was Command and Conquer a FPS franchise?

who was talking about C&C? have I ever mentioned C&C in any of my post? All I'm saying is, Wiimote does not equal Keyboard and mouse. it's obvious in all games.

and frankly, it doesn't take a genius to see this game will SUCK on Wii (in sooo many ways, from graphic prowess to controls) unless you disagree otherwise, we can always just wait and see.

20. Are you two going to take off your training bras and start slapping the shit out of eachother with them?
