Dead Space Extraction, Planet Cracker Coming To XBLA, PSN?

Kotaku writes: "Visceral Games' Dead Space 2 may not be the next game you play in the sci-fi franchise. Recent surveys point to an Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network port of Wii misfire Dead Space Extraction and something brand new, Planet Cracker.

One survey's description of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 port of Dead Space Extraction indicates that any planned port of the game would feature the same on-rails "guided first-person experience" gameplay, pitched as an "interactive horror experience" in "full HD." A tentative price of $15 USD was mentioned in the survey forwarded to Kotaku."

To me this sounds really cool. I enjoyed Dead Space Extraction on the Wii and if it comes out on the PS3 and 360. That will be great. I have always liked a good on-rail Shooter and Dead Space Extraction was a fun one.

Planet Cracker sounds interesting and if you can get stuff and transfer it to Dead Space 2 that would be great.

Tell you what though, DS:EXtraction was FULL retail price on the Wii so why the cut here? Seems like EA might have wanted it to fail as I'm still to see a Wii copy anywhere for a reduced price!

They're portinhg it to HD ANBD offering it at a reduced price too? Odd, bvery odd when they wouldn't even advertise lon the wi versions behalf yet expected yet another lightgun Wii game to sell at £45!That said it's a cool playthrough-but only, really, once.

@mastiffchild- Here in the States Dead Space Extraction can be found for $30 US. Its been on sale for even lower.

I almost purchased this game. Instead I rented it. With that said, glad that I waited. I definitely won't pass up the opportunity to buy again.

SpoonyRedMage5217d ago

mastiffchild, you pretty much said everything I wanted to say there. DS: Extraction wasn't just full price for a Wii game either was it? It was more expensive than the vast majority of Wii games.

I always knew god had a place for me : )

Well... EA just showed the finger to Wii owners that bought the game at full retail price!

Next thing will be this...

So, I'll shell out 15 bucks for this too.

qface645218d ago

you do realize dead space and DS extraction are VERY different games right?

Cyrus3655218d ago

I wonder if it'll have the motion control for PSN/XBLA respective versions?

Major_kenny5217d ago

I don't believe in anything kotaku says, they suck

stuntman_mike5217d ago

i bought this on Wii from a neighbor for £15. so if it does come to psn/live in HD i will probably get it as i'm a fan of anything dead space.

Dead Space Extraction better than the original Dead Space?

I played all three. Didn't find them fun, just had nothing to play. I don't think I beat third game though. Combat was super clunky, graphics and art design were ugly imo, story in first game wasn't too bad, rest were meh.

Over hyped series imo, also it doesn't help horror games don't scare me, so I guess that's a big reason for me too.

Play Alien Isolation on Hard or Nightmare.

Start on the movie DLC so that you don’t have to play a bunch of campaign in order to find out if you’ll be scared.

lucian229661d ago

I heard that was a good one. Honestly vr games scare me with jump scares because of how the threat feels real.

MIDGETonSTILTS17661d ago

There isn’t an official VR mode, unfortunately.

The audio should pull you right in if you use headphones.

Just finished playing the first, enjoyed the fact Isaac was a silent alien crushing psycho doom-guy type. Just started the second yesterday and I'm annoyed he's a talker now and sounds like a regular guy who hasn't been through hell, but I suppose he couldn't remain silent.

Dead Space 2 is my favorite followed by 1 then 3. All are good to me though. Just beat all 3 on series X and they hold up.

As simple as 1,2,3.

Extraction, then Ignition.
