Out of how many?

Let's see...

Civilization IV, Warhammer 40k Dawn of War: Winter Assault, Company of Heroes, Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion, Blitzkrieg 2, Earth 2060, Heart of Empire: Rome, Age of Empires 3, Outfront II, Heroes of Might and Magic V, Heaven vs. Hell, etc.

I find your skepticism, disturbing.

Though I don't know how many of those were actually at E3.

As far as I heard, Rome: Total War: Barabarian Invasion Expansion, Age of Empires III, Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends, Company of Heroes, Dragonshard, Civilization IV, Black & White 2, and Warhammer 40k Dawn of War Expansion, were the ones that were at E3 aside from EaW. The others you listed luke, I believe were a no-show.

Anyway, pretty good for EaW. A pretty good year for Strategy games in general. So for EaW to emerge on top is pretty good achievement.

Probably. I only took what was listed in the news section of many gaming sites. Since they had new news (pun not intented) for pretty much every one of those RTS, I assumed it was at E3. But what do I know, I wasn't there :)

Thanks for the clarification BeBop :)

But still coming out on top of those games is amazing enough.

It is indeed a very good achievement from Petrogylph and suddenly theres a trend of Lucasarts titles that are really not bad and have sold ever so well.

Since Battlefront, things have looked good (lets not count Galaxies expansions or Galaxies itself) Republic Commando again was a decent game plus KOTOR II.

And for the first time, we will have a fantastic RTS to play and it looks like it will be around for a long time once on sale.
