The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Ubisoft’s new strategy game, “Tom Clancy’s EndWar,” feature a cool new tool that lets players command their armies by telling them what to do rather than flipping thumbsticks and mashing buttons.

While you have to figure that any technology in its relative infancy is going to have a few bugs at launch, things seem to be working fairly smoothly in this Ubisoft video, in which two parrots duel in a heated, “winner-take-backrub” match.

“Tom Clancy’s EndWar” is out Tuesday. It’s rated T and costs $60 for PS3 and 360. Versions for the PlayStation Portable ($40) and Nintendo DS ($30) lack the voice command feature. A PC version is planned for next year.
