Recent Articles: The House of the Dead 4
It has taken seven long years, but The House of the Dead 4 has finally come home, courtesy of the PlayStation Network. The light gun shooter features both DualShock 3 and PlayStation Move support, so you get to choose how best to dispatch the zombie menace.
If blasting zombies isn’t your thing, a few other PlayStation Store titles are new this week including StarDrone Extreme, a Vita release that promises “a mix of arcade action, pinball, breakout, physics and collect-the-objects,” and Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, a Vita remake of the formerly PS3-exclusive strategy RPG. Two new full PS3 games are also being added to the store this week: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record and NHL 12.
The House of the Dead 4 is the only game in the light gun series that has never been released for a home console. But thanks to a recent PlayStation Blog post, we know that won’t be the case for much longer.
Sega will add The House of the Dead 4 to the PlayStation Store on April 17, but PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download a demo on April 10. This demo will be Plus-exclusive until April 24.
Speaking of PlayStation Plus subscribers, they’ll be able to purchase House of the Dead 4 at a 30% discount. Since the game’s already been priced at $9.99 for regular PSN users, that’s quite a deal. And that’s still not all, the game will also include additional levels from The House of the Dead 4 Special.
All this, and PlayStation Move support as well.
Sega’s The House of the Dead 4 has never received a console port. So most fans of the series have never had a chance to play it (even though, chronologically, it takes place before the third game in the series). That’ll all change this Spring as Sega plans to release the fourth House of the Dead game exclusively on the PlayStation Network. But first, Sega plans to bring The House of the Dead 3 to the PSN on February 7!
Both games will include a high definition graphical upgrade, Trophies, and PlayStation Move support. Though I’d expect nothing less from this pair of remakes.
Even though it was originally released in 2005, House of the Dead 4′s previous arcade exclusivity basically makes it a new game in the series for most gamers. After the awesomeness of Overkill, I can’t wait.
