Halo Wars, the real-time strategy game from Ensemble Studios and Microsoft, will be hitting the Xbox 360 on March 3, 2009. The game, which Ensemble believes will exemplify console RTS controls, will be available in both a standard edition and collector's edition.
The $80 collector's edition will feature bonus content for Halo 3 in the form of three new multiplayer maps. Furthermore, the game will apparently never be coming to the PC so you'll have to get all your Halo RTS action in on the Xbox 360.
Where do you stand on Halo Wars? Are you buying it and will you be going in for the collector's edition? I'm definitely going to play it, but it's still just a rental for me. Ensemble has done some great things with RTS games on the console, but I still prefer a mouse & keyboard for my strategy titles. Also, if the StarCraft II beta starts up before then I'll be playing that pretty much exclusively.
