A heads up to you Advance Wars fans.  A new XBLA game (Attack of the Genos) coming that is similar to Advance Wars.  Check it out from Team Xbox:

Amazing.  90 views and no replies?  I thought for sure ATB would have said something.

Team Xbox review is 8.5:

Played it a bit over Devnet before new year's.  It's definitely Advance Wars 3D.  Nothing overly spectacular, but if you like that sort of thing, the price is right.

According to Team Xbox it says February 2008!  So, I guess one of the next three Wednesday's.

UPDATE:  This Wednesday, Feb 13 along with Discs of Tron!

I'll check out a demo. You can tell they were limited on art resources though.  It's got a sterile look to it, and I'll miss the Advance Wars animated battle screens (even though I skip through most of them now.  I turned them off in the options and really missed them! smile)

I kind of like the look...reminds me of Moonbase Commander.
Wish someone would do THAT for XBLA.

I played the demo for a little bit.  I really like the music and the mock jazz era style of it.  The controls are pretty straightforward and streamlined.  I thought the look would be too simplistic from the screenshots, but it fits the style they're going for.

I'm hoping it's a simple version of Advanced Wars (which itself is simple, I know, but I'm looking for super lite here).  Clearly that's what they're going for.

Anyone buy it and play through it more?
