That would be great. I bet they wont just because it goes against their whole "controller free" thing.

It just doesn't seem quite the same without the overly complicated and massive controller. I'll be sure to keep this one on my radar.

Hmm, after messing around with the Kinect, I think it's safe to say that Steel Battalion with Kinect controls may actually work out pretty well. Of course, I'd still prefer that overly complicated and awesome controller, but oh well lol.

Lol, on a side note about that trailer, I will never understand the "brilliance" in forward-opening combat carrier boats. It's shooting fish in a barrel, almost literally. In WWII I can understand that technology may have played a factor (it may have been harder to build a floating vehicle that opens its sides rather than its front), but in 2082 they're still using front-opening beach riders? ^^b

Well IIRC they said that all modern tech was gone. So they are back to WWII type stuff for the most part. Not including the US rifles(which are like a pre-vietnam M16 prototype) or the VTs. Basically anything made now can't be made in the game and is apparently disappeared off the face of the earth. Seems really stupid to me. Apparently modern tactics and all forms of modern stuff(like kevlar, body armor, radios, and other equipment) just disappeared over night or something.

Ill miss the controller. Still might convince an Xbox 360 owning friend to buy it.

Well now I heard that you use Kinect and a normal 360 controller in order to play the game. No idea how that will work and I wish, if nothing else, you had the option of using the controller from the original Steel Battalion if they wont make a new one.
