I remember playing Panzer General and Allied General on the Playstation, way back when. I thoroughly enjoyed them both despite their complexity and "slowness". However, like the author stated, most console gamers prefer action in their games, so I'm not so sure they'd sell these days. I'd be curious to see how well Risk Factions and Panzer General remake did on XBLA (I believe Risk Factions is also on PSN). Those were cheap, accessible strategy games. If they sold well, maybe there is a market for them after all.

It surprises me that there are so few board and wargames on there by now, though.
