The only system where the light-gun feel is a natural is the Wii. It's kind of along the same lines as to why Wii didn't get COD 4. Sure you could do it on the Wii, but graphics aren't the Wii's strength. It is the 360 and PS3's strongpoint. Motion control is the Wii's strength though, so House of the Dead games make alot more sense for it, than the other two consoles.

The point isn't the graphics, it's the control system. While I never said that the game couldn't be done on the other consoles, HoTD was an arcade game with plastic guns used to play with it. The game's original intent was a style best suited for the Wii's strengths. Wii's main strength is it's point and click/ motion sensing ability. Whereas the other two consoles focus on graphics as their main strength.

The Wii is best suited for this game. It will be cheap for the developers to create/port it and make a profit. So there is not really a reason for them to put it onto a system that has COD 4 or Halo 3 on it for instance. That is what I am saying.

@PopEmUp: Because it's cheap to develop for the Wii & come Christmas Wii will likely have an install base that exceeds 360 & PS3 combined.
