Default PS3 Red Alert 3...canned?

Anyone knows what engine Red Alert 3 uses?

"We actually announced a PS3 version early on but that was when we were still doing a lot of technical exploration of the architecture," explained (EALA producer Amer ) Ajami. "PS3 is a very powerful system but as you guys know it's very exotic and tough to develop for and our engine really at the time wasn't designed for PS3." Couch commanders need not give up all hope, though, as Ajami notes EA "might go back and do something with the PS3 later on."

C&C is heavily rooted in DirectX.

The PS3 isn't a x86 based platform. Sure it's going to be a PITA to port a game with deep roots in DX to a gaming console.

Xbox consoles are nice for people who cannot build PCs. But me, I play Gears of War at over 100 frames per second on my plasma with a 360 controller. As well as most other 360 exclusives.

Mass Effect also looks better with real textures too.

Don't forget, the X in Xbox once stood for DirectXBox (the consoles original name).

As for console games, I prefer to play those on a console, like the Wii or PS3.

i like the C&C series, but i never play RTS game anyway, my brother is a big fan of them, and neither of us would EVER play a RTS on a console.. for some reason RTS's belong on PC.. they run, play and just feel so much better on a PC.. .. i think if they would have brought out C&C for any console.. it probably would have blown anyway just like the RTS's on the 360... not that many gamers are going to buy them..

And ppl said the same thing about FPS and consoles, until Halo... The point is that the mighty EA is still struggling with their cash cow PS3

Ouch, sucks for PS3 exclusive owners. C&C is a fantastic RTS, and if the Xbox360 version of Tiberian Sun taught me anything - RTS should remain PC exclusive!

I haven't played much of Civilizations, but I read thats the first good Console RTS game. And then you got Halo Wars and that other weird game with dudes jumping through the sky, Storm Strike.

Did I just diffuse my own point?

RTS should remain PC exclusive dammit!
