@ RiLLsI'm not saying it can't be done. Take a look at AdvanceWars. IMO one of the best strategy games every made. FPS games lend themselves to the console very well. However the only reason they do is because of the limited number of things going on at any one time. (i.e. You pick up a gun, you aim while moving, you shot while moving, aim jump and shoot.) However with RTS games you have a lot more things going on at a time. The mechanics of RTS games just don't lend themselves to consoles. in RTS game you have units harvesting, you have to build multiple different types buildings and bases. And each of those buildings produces several types of units, all the while you have to reconnoiter your enemy, build units to counter his strategy, send those units to attack at strategic points on the map, at the same time manage your economy and tech up. I just don't see that happening on any of the new consoles. Unless of course they come with a keyboard and a mouse. That's the only way they would work.
