VG247: EA just confirmed a Wii version of Dead Space in its Q3 investor call.
Even the wiitards should be able to enjoy this game!
no its Nintendrones. (play on Nintendogs) It must follow the mechnical robot theme. -Xbots -Sony Droids -Nintendrones
ninendrones go with the theme, but wiitard has a good ring to it! lol
It's Wiiploid, you fool. :/
Don't be sad you're not getting RE5,Dead Space is a much superior game from what I've played,so you're in for a treat.
I hope it doesn't turn out crappy. Dead Space is a phenomenal game on PC, 360, and PC but I'd hate for Wii owners to get a sour taste in their mouths from a shoddy port.
I only got the Ps3 version last week,even if it's the same game level wise i'm sold just because of the controls,just play res 4 on wii,and you'll wish 360/Ps3 had wii-mote for 5 because it made it the ultimate lightgun game.
I liked Dead Space, but it doesn't even beat RE4. Dead Space doesn't have the variety to beat a RE game. Play an entire RE game, and you'll soon understand.
Rise of the Bad Guy is right. Don't be sad that RE5 isn't coming to the Wii. I've played the demo an it's definitely a last gen game with HD visuals. Last gen animations, last gen hit zones on zombies, last gen reactions. A shame really. Dead Space absolutely destroys Resident Evil so you are definitely getting the better game and the best Survival Horror money can buy. My personal favourite game of 08. Rejoice Wii owners!!
WTF... ill just wait for screens/videos still....WTF
you should've already seen this coming from miles away! who wouldn't want to invest in a Wii? it has the largest userbase among all the current consoles and has the lowest dev cost! I wouldn't be suprise even if EA release a DS version! look at PoP! how cute he looks on the DS!
Great for Wii owners! The game never really interested me, though.
Wow, hardcore games are hitting the Wii market. Good job EA, put LotR: Conquest on it too, you'll need it with the flop it was.
The graphics will be dumbed down for the wii though
i thought it would receive a full blown upgrade...
i just love the use of the Skill "extreme sarcasm" XD you made me laugh in the middle of my job, need to be careful...
Wasn't expecting that, great game though.
w....t......f?? the downgrade in graphical quality will suck the excellent immersion out of the game
The way to get a game like Dead Space(which I think suffered more from a heavy list of big hitting games competing with it-and most of them sequels in great/famous franchises than any lack of quality-it's a stylishly presented bit of space tension with imaginative tools as weapons to cut off limbs mechanic that really worked well and had it been comng out two months earlier it would have doubled it's sales at least, imo)onto the Wii i clearly NOT to try to put the same screens through the less powerful hardware and instead play to Wii strengths and make the graphics really stylised(go more for the comic style Dead Space stills I've seen about and it could prove brilliant)and whatever you do get the motion controls right(like Resi4 but with M+ would be as good as you'd want I reckon). Do it my way EA and all you'll lose from the original woulsd be the realistic gore and attending physics-in return you get a playable graphic novel full of great artstyle and lighting effects with a motion plus enhanced controls system that would make the Wii's Dead Space a different but pssibly not in a bad way survival horror. IMO the Wii version of RE4 is better than PS2/GC. In the absense of any new Resi love for the wii faithful from Capcom(at least RE5 on the Wii would have had a single player mode!And no the "looking after your AI partner all bloody game when it's meant to be a lonely survival horror game anyway" mode doesn' count as a sp campaign for me. There's a big ready market of Resi fans with Wiis and done correcty Dead Space Wii should more than fit the bill. In my mind it doesn't need to be rocket science(see what I did there what with the lead character fixing, like , rockets and stuff-accidental mind)but will the smaller but surefure return of doing it cheaply prove too tempting in a EA go Ubi kind of way?
Hey if it looks as good as the Conduit or better i will be fine especially since it is going to have better controls.
Eh yet i think a game like RE:5 would have been better on the Wii than on the PS3/360. IF the controls work out well enough you can't complain.
The controls are cr4p on the RE5 demo so Wii would definitely have that going for it.
ROFL, can't wait to see the screens. Dead Space had a crappy movie but a good level-design, melted with classic plot and Doom-like horror. If the controls are as well adapted as Resident Evil 4, it may be a very good choice for a Wii owner. But i don't understand EA's choice, they consider Dead Space and Mirror's Edge as a flop, so why would they port it to Wii? Is that an Okami syndrome?
precisely because it was a flop , and could get a second , and possibily richer life on Wii .
I hope they use Xbox like graphics. I just heard of H.A.W.X on the Wii, so this is getting lucky. I hope I Am Alive gets announced on the Wii. They better not screw this up.
If it controls as good as the RE4 game, I'm in!
I will definitely be following this story. Though graphics certainly don't make a game (imo) it will be interesting to see how this turns out. The graphical ability of this game added to the overall immersion, I'm wondering how the Wii will deal with this hurdle... Great news though.
i wonder how it'll play.
well, i can see this game being really good if they make a seperate engine for it designed for the wii.
If EA can deliver a decent Dead Space for the Wii, then Capcom really need to step up to the plate and at least consider RE5: Wii Edition.
There is going to be RE5 for Wii... they said so but maybe in like 2 years, and by then RE6 will be announced so its nothing special anyway.
holy crap! Awesome :) I already have this game on 360 but I would pick it up again on the Wii easily.
RE4 Engine basically confirmed. Ragdoll physics and dismembered limbs as well, please. Alright, so that's asking for much. But really, Dead Space was an incredible looking game, and had a great physics engine. I hope they put as much effort as possible into the Wii version.
LOL and you people believe it? I call BS.
EA confirming it themselves on one of their financial reports? Yeah, sounds pretty solid to me. Think before you post.
Yeah well sorry if I'm a little skeptical about something that makes no sense. I'll believe it when I see it.
yea man think/read before posting a dumb response like that. i would like to give bubbles for the Bob Dylan avatar but... no, lol.
Wow... people are taking my bubbles over that comment. So lame.
The wii is overtaking.. Next up, ff13 and gta4 for the wii. Wii fanboys are now officially in the making, a third party is now joining the exclusive war. Tiny virmin wii fanboys are starting to grin now, yellow eyes in the darkness waiting to come out.
what's your beef? EVERY comment you make has the word "f*nboy" in it. your comments belong in the open zone. they'd understand you better there, dont you think?
i am actually on topic, because its surprising that the wii is getting deadspace, my comment reflects that.
a Shame... one of dead space's best feature was its amazing graphics and lighting effects ah well
You know whats also a shame? You getting banned for being a fanboy. Oh, and the fact that your parents getting drunk and high and by mistake created you.
^ I got banned for being a fanboy? 0.o well maybe a 360 and PS3 fanboy? because i own and love both but think the wii is garbage you know what isnt a shame? you have one bubble so nobody pays much attention to your retarded dribble, and i have, how many? 8.. ah well that clears that up doesnt it lad.
You never know. This game could be great. I hope that they use XBOX graphics for the game, like the first COR game. You never know!! I will buy it since my friend is addicted to the Xbox 360 version. As addicted as Michael Phelps!!
Lol, next up, Killzone 2 confirmed for the wii. It would be dumbed down a bit, but the wii could handle it very well.
yeah if the Wii can handle COD it could handle killzone 2
Confirmed: Left 4 Dead, Mass Effect 2, Dead Rising 1 and 2, and Braid all heading to the PS3.
Calm down there Gerry. don't let the internet take over your little head
Ps3 fans are like girls :) They are hurt so easily :D
funny you should say that Foxgod, because you get hurt everytime you have the need to comment in every Killzone 2 article. There is a reason why the power light on your Xbox is green.
well the Xbox 360 is ahead of the PS3, so it kills them that the Xbox 360 is ahead of the PS3 that's why most the fanboys here is droids.
Good point blur111, i bubbled you :)
Who argues Xbox/Playstation in a Wii section lol.
Oh christ, get the PC virsion.
Why not release it with the PS3/360 version it would've helped sales no one won't go for this now at least imo.
If they did that, the quality would have been major sh/t. Cause they need to make a quick and dirty port to keep up with the other developments. As long they take their time with this one, nothing can really go bad.
i can't even imagine how crappy it will be
thats coz u dont even have any imagination!
Is this for real? If it is the next game to be ported should be Mirrors Edge
Not Killzone 2, but Street Fighter IV (online play), Tom Clancy's EndWar (online play), Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (online play), Capcom vs. SNK 3 (online play), and several other games like that. And BLACK (online play) And Call of Duty 4 (online play) And Prince of Persia Since H.A.W.X is coming to the Wii anyway, hopefully with online play. And Mirror's Edge (with online play)
If this is true (crosses everything) and EA pulls this off, more and more 3rd party developers will follow suit.If the game is better on the Wii and it sells well, expect the lack of hardcore games on the system argument to be null and void.Hope EA gives Nintendo some competition on their console.
Nice i beat the ps3 version of dead space.The game would rock with wii controls.I'd pick it up in a sec.Nice EA
i was interested in this game.. so glad its coming to wii.
it begins huh? This holds more symbolic weight than anything else, I think. Sort of like DQX going to the Wii. Western 3rd parties were the ones left that were not jumping on the Wii bandwagon. EA being the largest western 3rd party may begin an avalanch of support. It happened during the PS1 era, when everyone was jumping from the nintendo ship. Companies can only bleed so much money before they have to try a different route. As stubborn as many third parties have been and many continue to be, money talks. You all know what walks.
It just makes sense to be on Wii or DS. Nintendo systems represented 49% of all sales last year. 32% for Sony(PS2,PS3,PSP) and 19 for MS. I dont know about you but I've been expecting this since after an IGN podcast a few weeks back. Cant wait to see if any of the other stuff turns out to be as good.
But it was inevitable, The install base keeps growing. And i said it like a million times. IF there is an audience, there will be money. Eventually if more games like these are made for the Wii, some "core" gamers hating the wii might actually be swayed due the fact that it will be having games that appeal to them.
