Thought I'd post this here, since this seems like the appropriate thread \:\)

Russian publisher 1C has announced their first two upcoming games for consoles: Captain Blood and a game I'm sure you've heard of: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey.

http://www.1cpublishing.eu/news/1c-is-coming-to-consoles

This is exciting, especially if it has a USB joystick support. But what's even more exciting is that KoTS might see the light of day on consoles as well. There's an old rumor/unofficial piece of news that 1C will be publishing KoTS (see http://wwiaircombat.com/articles/knights-of-the-sky-russia-publisher-1c), at least according to NaturalPoint.

If you read the first page of this thread, VikS doesn't confirm or deny KoTS on consoles, so it leaves open the possibility!

Anyhow, either way, I'll be looking forward to playing IL-2 on my 360, along with Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. Still want to get a nice WWI sim on consoles though!

Sturmovik on Consoles, Frank have you not ventured into any of the IL2 boards \:\)
That information has not gone unnoticed. The IL2 boards across the globe pretty much went into melt down over the weekend. It was quite entertaining

Dave, having a console(s) port for KOTS would be unexpected, but then that's the sort of innovation that this hobby genre of ours needs for its future health and wealth.

Haha, I'm a bit out of the loop when it comes to IL-2 stuff. I heard it first through Kotaku, then a friend gave me a different link with the announcement today, so I thought it was time for an update.

Yeah, I can see that KoTS will be just on the PC when it's released, but depending on its success, I can see an Xbox 360 or PS3 port sometime after that being at least a possibility.

Well, it's fun to dream anyhow \:\)
