Sega Confirms House of the Dead Wii Collection

    Alternatively, you could buy the excellent LCD TopGun from a HK retailer, get these games on Xbox (HotD2 is unlockable in HotD3) and have a real light gun experience. While you're at it, you could also get Virtua Cop 1 and 2, Vampire Night, Ninja Assault and some of the Time Crisis games on PS2. You can also use it for any PC-based emulator.

    Or you could sit and wait for this, but you'll end up paying more and having not only less games, but less fun playing the ones you will have.

    uh yeah maybe if you HAVE an XBox. GG fanboy.
