Now, if someone were to go out and acquire additional peripherals then it becomes possible to reach levels closer to what a keyboard and mouse can do, but even then - further complications arise. There is a reason that the vast majority of RTS games are for PC, not console. I see no circumstance wherein a console version could even be as good (control wise), much less 'infinitely better' than a PC version.
I've played lots of RTs, granted I'm mostly a solo player, and have never used hotkeys. For more casual players, it is more than possible to get these types of capabilities via a controller. Granted, there are not as many buttons on a controller as there is on a keyboard, but it's still not impossible.

I eagerly await for the day when someone feels brave and ionnovative enough to try it on a console for real...
