IGN have interviewed Louis Castle (who is obviously a very busy man at the moment). The interview goes through the usual First Decade questions and other ones that we have seen asked in recent weeks. However, there are a few interesting ones.
IGNPC: How important has the community been over the years to driving change in the series? Have they contributed many big ideas?
Louis Castle: The C&C community is critical to driving change in that they are our most knowledgeable and devoted customers. It is critical that each title receives their approval not only with all the features they come to expect, but also with new ideas that some of them may have been thinking of as well. I could not point to a single feature that came from the fan base, but can say that their vocal commentary on what they like about the products has guided the development of features for every product in the series.
Furthermore, they've released a 'Fan Video Montage' which previews some of the Bonus footage on the First Decade DVD. The file weighs in at 27mb and is in 320x240, higher resolutions are available to registered members.
