:p I don't seehow WC3 would work on XBOX. I can see how World of Warcraft would, but I don't understand why someone would want to play strategy games like C&C and WarCraft on XBOX. It's so much more effieicnt playing them on PC.

Well put. Games like Warcraft 3 benefit extensively from a mouse & keyboard. I'm not sure how many shortcut keys there are in WC3, but I know at least a good 20-25 by heart. Without these the game would be alot slower.. I just can't see how the controls could be setup on xbox to allow quick access to any function.

Give xbox a mouse and keyboard. You could give people the oppertunity to play a game like warcraft3 that they might not have (it requires a pretty powerful computer). Not everyone can afford a top of the line computer but xbox now at 199 is nice.

First of all, Microsoft DIDN'T Acquire Bioware. They simply signed a contract with Bioware to simply have bioware make a game exclusively for xbox and it's a totally NEW game based on a totally new content that will be the property of Bioware, not Microsoft.

While I know I'm comparing apples to oranges, alot of people said the same thing about the difference with using a controller vs. a keyboard/mouse for an FPS. I've seen some hard-core PC FPS players that have really taken to the Xbox controller for an FPS like Halo. I'm not saying it can be done for an RTS, but I sure hope it can be.

It's still a lot easier using mouse/keyboard than joystick.

Ever remember playing star craft or command and conquer on n64?? lol

I don't know about Neverwinter Nights coming to the Xbox. I mean one of the huge draws about NWN is the ability to create your own moduals (sp) and make new adventures to play by yourself or online. Since it would be near imposible to program with the Xbox controller I it would lose the creation kit Bioware was boasting the whole time it was in dev.
