XCOM Shooter Going Third-Person?

Kotaku has some screenshots claimed to be from a marketing survey that suggest that the upcoming shooter based on the X-COM series may now be a third-person shooter after being announced as an FPS. According to their unverified source, these shots came along with questions about the appeal of such a game as a $30 download for Xbox 360 and PS3, with no mention of a PC edition, suggesting a downgrade from a AAA game to a downloadable console title. They received the following no comment from 2K: "We have not made any new announcements regarding the XCOM title currently in development at 2K Marin, and it is our policy not to comment on rumors or speculation."

Everything I saw from the previous version made me angry. What a loathsome piece of shit that was shaping up to be. This new version looks slightly less offensive, but I doubt I'd care if it turns out to be console-only.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown, on the other hand, looks like it'll be one of the best games of the year.

Loathsome because of the name?
All we had was a setting and a few cool monster effects. I can't fathom that being loathsome.

And I don't think going 3rd person chances that. I remember that old Freedom Fighters game from 2002 or so. 3rd person action game based on a group mechanic - you had lots of guys to command as you barreled through NYC during a Soviet takeover.
It was pretty damn fun.
