House of the Dead 3 & 4 coming exclusively to PSN

Sega has announced arcade classics House of the Dead 3 and 4 will be coming exclusively to the PlayStation Network in 2012.

 

House of the Dead 3 & 4 coming exclusively to PSN Screenshot - ComputerAndVideoGames.com 1 / 5

 

Both titles have received a HD upgrade, Trophies and complete PlayStation Move support. House of the Dead 3 will hit PSN on February 7, with House of the Dead 4 releasing later in "spring 2012".

 

While House of the Dead 4 released in arcades in 2005, its re-release this year on PSN will mark the first time it has appeared on home console.


"The House of the Dead has always been one of SEGA's most popular series, and over the years we have worked hard to bring that full arcade experience to console owners," said Sega of America executive, Haruki Satomi.


"The abilities of the PlayStation 3, as well as PlayStation Move, have let us get closer than ever before. The only thing these titles are missing is a need for quarters."

 

The first trailer and screenshots can be found below.

I may just keep my Move now.. :)

Hope Theres a way they can Increase the Screen width for HOTD3 Dont like playing 4/3 titles on 16/9 TVs 

HOTD 4 was in 1080i in the arcade. If the arcade paid enough for the top unit, other wise it is was in 4/3 SD if the arcade was to cheap. So should not be a problem for HOTD 4 to have widescreen version on PS3. 

 

Price again will rule if they are to high I wont be getting them as the money could be spent on Extending Love film Sub or Testing Netflix.  Plus ME3 release will delay purchasing any thing else any way after march.

 

so HOTD 4 can't delay to much as it could end up in the JJ launch window.

I couldn't agree more.

 

I have enjoyed Overkill but after playing through once (omg its short) I'm halfway through the directors cut and i'm bored already. 

 

IF they come in sub a tenner I'll consider a purchase for casual playing. With 3 and 4 being launched I'll most likely wait till 4 as both games are much of a muchness. 

 

HD remakes/ports/classics etc arent always that great and so far they have all kinda dissapointed me and feel like cash cows more than anything.

 

Ive also got a few games lined up and whilst I'm a renter so cash isnt an issue (also got £50+ in the psn wallet) price is still a consideration

 

I've been burned waaay to much with the psn and Ive slowly become dissillusioned with it.

have you got a sharpshooter or a plastic shell case (gun accessory) for the move ?

just using the wand in a shooter really sucks :''(

oh and Overkill has anaglyph mode 3D (if you got some glasses laying about) Its ok but a nifty little feature

I got both, the gun for these type of games, and the Sharpshooter for Killzone 3, Socom 4 etc (which is awful!).

Yeah I notice the 3D thing before but only just tried it out today (you get a pair of glasses with the game ;)). It was nice and novelty while I killed the first several zombies. I soon took it off tho and I'm sticking to my 3D sucks/uncomfy/strains my eys/hurts my head ;)

Ok, i got roped into buying the game today, and i thought i'll give it a go. And i'm glad i did if being honest. The 4:3 screen doesn't really matter when you have the dead lunge themselves at you lol.

 

It was very good using the PS-Move ( with a gun attachment ) and was spot on. Reminded me of the good old days ( but in HD ) :Winner:

1 week till HOTD 4.

PS+ SCEA got another Exclusive Demo for HOTD4 this time.

So if you check the web there will likely be some New LQ shakey camera footage online buy now.

If your wondering to buy it. the current Sega release footage does not show much.

Demo feed back.

Dual move use with one hand each is just as bad as before, it is actualy harder than single move.

This is A human limitations not the game.

Its fine in 2 player human. 

 

Demo was restricted to Normal and easy modes to restrict how hard it would be.

NO limb removal most just disolve when dieing

Gun in demo is fully automatic.

 

Sharpshooter lay out

pump action & reload button = reload 

Playstation face buttons and Move button= grenade 

Shake move to shake of undead and reload.

shot selection = disabled in demo

 

Nav controller DISABLED, Menu controll is DS3 or Move only. or a nav manualy mapped to controller 1, not automatic set up on demo.

 

New Sharpshooter holding skill needed as it was easier to remove the Nav controller and use the pump action for reload and boy do you need it. Due to auto fire your reload arm and hand will be more tired then the trigger finger... 

 

This will be worth bying if you have PS+ discount on any of your accounts.

If not then the price might make you wait for the bundle offer thats bound to arrive at a later date.

HOTD 3+4 for the price of just 1.

HOTD4 any good? Ive played the earlier ones and I still play Overkill from time to time (the anaglyph 3d mode is suprisingly great) but I think 4 is the only one Ive missed. Its discounted for PS+ at the moment so im considering a purchase but itd be good to hear from someone who's played it

If you have PS+ Get it.

If not wait for a price drop.

Or watch You tube Footage and decided to pay full price

 ( I  would make a Vid. but it would only be SD and some one with a haup HD PVR will do one.)

 

Be aware compared to Overkill It is very small game. This is because it REALLY is an Arcade conversion. 

HARD and VERY HARD only unlock after you finish Normal story mode on PS3 version.

 

Your given House of the dead 4 special edition, which contains more of Kate Greens story and is set after HOTD 2 but before HOTD 3. So does not conclude the story. If you already played 3 you have skipped past this games time line already. but this game may explain why some players may not show up in HOTD3. HOTD 3 has been on lots of consoles, HOTD4 had not been on any..

 

Order to play the games ( 5 = HOTD overkill or zero,)

For plot play in this order 5,1,2,4,3 

For Features work backwards in number....     

 

The Gun may be auto fire but the game still rewards head shots instead of spraying.

There's dual route game play, some You choose when to change, others buy your actions but you may not notice those.

(Yes there are hidden things to find but you have to throw your accuracy bonus away to get them.)

 

Its fun but the price shows that there's very little, to no replay value, unless your a stat obsessed.

Cheers for the heads up. I have PS+ so at the price it is Im guessing its worth the money. The 4GB file size does make me wonder if theres something special about the game (by comparison Far Cry 2 was about 3.2GB when I downloaded that thru PS+ and it was no small game by a long stretch lol)
