[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3307414[/IMGW] http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3147040 and http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3155311 have made great strides in translating the typically mouse-and-keyboard-oriented real-time-strategy experience onto a console platform, but there's plenty of room for improvement. Ubisoft, like Microsoft with http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3154058, is attempting to innovate by designing their strategy games from the ground up on console, rather than porting.

To that end, Ubisoft is already preparing to deliver a beta version of http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3158955 to gamers later this year, reports http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=76858. "We really believe that as soon as anyone can get their hands on the controls and experience it, it'll be something new and it's a level of immersion and realism and accessibility that's never really been in a strategy game," said EndWar Creative Director Michael de Plater.
