Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is coming to PS3 [Update]

2K Games, courtesy of Take-Two Interactive, dropped a Civ bomb today, announcing their publishing deal for Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution for both PS3 and Xbox 360. As of yet, no announced plans for a PC release. That's because consoles rule and PC's drool. (/Humor) In all seriousness, this endeavor should pose quite a challenge, as the console audience is vastly different in control and appeal (especially considering the plethora of trigger-happy preteens from FPS overload).

This marks the first time Sid Meier actually has a hand in producing a Civilization console release, which we hope will bear significance on its quality and polish. Sixteen civilizations will be available for player control with real-time interaction with leaders and advisors, packed with "extensive multiplayer capabilities" featuring "integrated video and voice chat." No screenshots as of yet, but that should change as the sands of time bear down on us.

According to Sid Meier, "Civilization Revolution is the game I've always wanted to make! We are excited to take advantage of the power of next generation consoles and the ingenuity of handhelds, to create a great and unique strategy game for newcomers to the series, as well as the millions of fans around the world who enjoy Civilization on the PC." We guess he wasn't kidding when he professed his love for Sony. Welcome to the party, Sid. Glad you came aboard.

1. Cool. I really enjoyed Civ 3. I don't really like Civ 4 as much. I really hope the integrate sixaxis controls somehow. Just kidding.

2. They could integrate the sixaxis to control zoom function, but thats about it I imagine.

Civ 1 on SNES was like a carbon copy of Civ1 on PC. this could work pretty good too, use the D-Pad for most of the work.

maybe more of a tactical-RPG feel with the shading on where you can go.

3. Cool.

4. Since Meier doesn't love us enough to make it exclusive, the least they can do is make it so that people from both consoles can compete against one another.

5. Hopefully he lets us use a mouse and keyboard. The control schemes for the 360 RTS games are terrible, hopefully Sony doesn't screw this up. If the PS3 version allows for kb/ms functionality it would by far be the better game between 360 and PS3, because 360 does not allow kb/ms to be used.

6. @5

If Sony doesn't screw it up? I could have sworn it was being made by Take-Two. Maybe the article is wrong. Shame on you editor!
