Microsoft has announced that it's bringing Age of Empires III: Complete Collection to Games For Windows on September 15. By "complete," it means the original game plus its two expansions: The Asian Dynasties and War Chiefs for a grand total of $49.99.

It's a reasonable price to pay for the handiwork of Halo Wars creator Ensemble Studios, although no matter how many copies you buy, the disbanded developer won't be coming back. (But hopefully one of the two studios that rose from its ashes will create something on par with the historic RTS series, someday.)
