Don't know if it's been posted already but I thought this was exciting. It's from Gamespot.

Strategy First has entrusted developer Glyphic Entertainment with the task of bringing the franchise to the portable intact, and the current features list suggests the studio will retain some of the series' most familiar components. Warlords DS will support turn-based hotseat or Wi-Fi play for up to eight players, with 20 premade scenarios to play through and randomized maps to keep things fresh.

Gamers will be able to produce 28 different types of armies, as well as access statistics for each battle that show the balance of power and military strength as it tips with each passing turn. And while there are economic and diplomatic aspects of the gameplay, the game's main focus is on combat. Strategy First is also promising artificial intelligence that will be able to challenge veteran gaming generals, as well as a tutorial system with a military advisor that can ease newer strategy fans into the action.

Warlords is the third offering in Strategy First's catalog of upcoming releases, joining the previously announced Jagged Alliance 2 and Disciples II.
A good excuse to play these older games that I've wanted to try out for a while. JA2 I'm particularly excited to play.

Yeah, I'm not sure if console RTS games are quite there yet, but there's no reason to believe they never will be. In my opinion, Halo Wars stands a good chance of coming up with the best control scheme to date - it's being developed for the Xbox 360 only (so it doesn't have to compromise because there's no mouse and keyboard support to bring it down), Ensemble are a very experienced RTS developer and Microsoft will put an awful lot of money behind it.

And then there are games like Pikmin, Batallion Wars and Overlord (and, to lesser extent, Goblin Commander) that cherish the RTS flavor unique to consoles and their controls already work fine.

I think Tenchu Z demo should be available today as well (according to a banner I just saw), you might like that one better, even though its visuals are rather poor.

I'm into fighting games far, far less than I am into historic war themed shooters. Thanks, tho.

It's not a fighting game, it's a stealth game and I know you like those.

Oops, sorry. I thought Tenchu was a beat-em-up. How n00b of me.

Anyway, I looked it up on XBL and I don't see it. I'll give it several more hours and re-check then.

More cool news for the DS.

Now, Midway is preparing to port the aging title to the DS so we can finally live out our oldest Myst fantasies: jabbing Sirrus and Achenar with a stylus.

For starters, Myst DS will include a brand new age to explore as well as the Rime Age from realMYST. The game's source code has been re-written specifically for the DS, new sounds and clips are scattered throughout, and the video and audio have been re-mastered as well. Touch screen control is a given, but Midway hasn't revealed how both screens will be utilized. Keep an eye out for Myst DS this November in Europe.

Microsoft already debunked that rumor, although they did say it contains some "obvious educated guesses".

Companies always debunk rumours.

Doesn't means there isn't a grain of truth in it.

Microsoft buys the rights for GTA 4 episodic content for $ 50,000,000 dollars.

Source : Kotaku

That's one way I guess to win the console war.
