Visceral Games' sci-fi horror experience Dead Space Extraction appears to be making the leap from critically successful, commercially disappointing Wii game to high-definition do-over, thanks to EA Montreal.
Dead Space Extraction was outed as a PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade candidate earlier this year, when we reported on publisher EA's interest in bringing the game to a more welcoming audience. The "full HD" game was listed as a possible incentive for Dead Space 2 purchasers that could carry a $US15 price tag.
Now it appears a lot more likely, as an Electronic Arts rendering engineer lists the following game experience, via NeoGAF, currently in the works at EA Montreal.
Dead Space Extraction XBLA/PSN port (Feb 2010 – Now):
- Currently porting the popular Wii title based on EuroCom's EngineX to XBLA and PSN.
Dead Space Extraction for PSN and XBLA feels like the right move, a way for fans of the original to experience the Wii-only title on the platforms they prefer. As a pre-order or original purchase incentive, it - and that other rumoured Dead Space game, Planet Cracker - would fit in nicely with EA's Project Ten Dollar scheme.
Plus, the more Dead Space the better, we say.
