Promising RTS, Under Siege, Dated For PlayStation Network
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?
