They cover:

- The comeback of RTS games in 2006 and 2007 and quality of the RTS market
- The story telling perspective of C&C 3
- Full motion video was "almost a no-brainer"
- Characters in the story have "depth and dimension".
- "Not just another game from the 90's"
- Very insistent on fast gameplay
- No simultaneous release on PC and Xbox360
- Xbox360 won't play against PC versions
- Sides are very balanced for competition
- Will have a third party spectator program for PC that doesn't even require you own the game
