    Nope. That was Steel Battalion I think. There's never been a Mechwarrior on console before.

    Actually they released a version of the original MechWarrior on the SNES, a MechWarrior game with an isometric view for both the SNES and Genesis, and version of MechWarrior 2 for both the Saturn and Playstation. Not to mention the three MechAssault games they released (2 on Xbox, 1 on DS).

    Wiki Page


    I'll have to look at the article in the OP when I get home, but a new MechWarrior game is always something to be happy about (especially if it's on PC).

    I have always loved the mechwarrior series and am looking forward to this one. About time that a new one comes out.

    I had both SB 1 & 2, I remember going on live with 2, hardly any English people played it but there were a lot of Japanese players.

    Gameplay was pretty hectic and it having that huge ass controller felt epic :D
