Kalypso Media reminds us that Tropico 3 isn't just for the PC

More On: Tropico 3
I know what your thinking, "another Tropico 3 trailer...ugh", but hey it's not all that bad. Kalypso Media Group put together a short little video just so they can remind everyone that Tropico 3 isn't just on the PC but playable on the Xbox 360 as well. Never mind the expansion pack video they just released, or the fact that the game has been out for a while now. If I sound a little disgruntled, it's only because I can't find anything interesting in this little snipit of video. I am the type of gamer who, when playing SimCity, loads pre-built maps just so I can unleash natural (sometimes unnatural) disasters on an unsuspecting digital population. When Kalypso Media Group releases a video featuring Cloverfield like monsters rampaging on the island paradise of Tropico I'll show a bit more enthusiasm.
