Who said RTSs are only available on PC? Okay, most of them are – and certainly best played on PC – but that doesn't mean the PlayStation Network can't make an offering to the strategy gods.
Developer Seed Studios has dated their new RTS for the PSN, Under Siege . Dubbed the "first RTS created from scratch and exclusively for the PlayStation 3," this downloadable effort will launch on May 3 in North America and a week earlier on April 27 in Europe. The only possible downside to this announcement is the price: $19.99. Now, we have to remember that this is likely a very full real-time strategy experience and we've seen $20 downloadable titles before. Many, like Wipeout HD , have been well worth the price, too. Under Siege places you in a fantasy setting and is compatible with PlayStation Move…although for the life of me, I can't see RTS fans bothering with that particular feature. There's also two-player local split-screen and online action as well.
This is one of those games that will appeal to a select group of people, but those people are usually pretty passionate about their RTSs, so… Besides, who doesn't like robust game editors?
