THQ’s put out an instructional movie for the Xbox 360 version of Supreme Commander, showing a completely new interface for the RTS.

The control method seems to be built entirely from “control wheels” which are used to assign units to squads, build stuff, issue commands, and so on. You bring up unit-specific wheels by selecting the unit and hitting right on the d-pad, then select options from the wheel with the right stick.

Looks very cool, to be honest, and made our eyebrows move up at least one notch. Nice to see the barrier between PC and console RTS being slowly but surely eroded.

After the link. The 360 version of GPG strategy monster’s out in September.
