More Proof of Dead Space: Extraction Heading to PSN and XBLA

Dead Space: Extraction didn’t do so hot on Wii. What do you do when a product under performs? Find a way to squeeze money out of it. Well, I guess that’s about the same for any successful game too…

Anyways, it looks like yet another employee leaked the existence of a PSN and XBLA port of the Wii exclusive Dead Space: Extraction. A rendering engineer over at EA listed under experience “Dead Space Extraction XBLA/PSN port (Feb 2010 – Now)” and described the project as “Currently porting the popular Wii title based on EuroCom’s EngineX to XBLA and PSN.”

We have been hearing this rumor for awhile. The first was via a survey, the second time we heard of it came up via a panel where developers answer “keep your ears peeled” to the possiblity of a port.

I think it is pretty much at this point just a matter of time. Hopefully the title will perform well on both HD systems.

Rumor: Dead Space Extraction and Planet Cracker heading to PSN and XBLA

A recent consumer survey suggests that PS3/360 Dead Space fans might have a go at the recent Wii outing Dead Space Extraction which barely scraped in some sales.

The survey said that the port would retain the on-rails gameplay as the original, but with HD visuals. They were considering asking $15 for the title on XBLA and PSN.

The survey also mentioned another possible Dead Space title known as Planet Cracker which would be a “resource strategy game where players will manage a CEC Mining operation. Planet Cracker would be an extension of the Dead Space 2 story and could offer in-game rewards in the retail version of Dead Space 2.

Both of these titles were mentioned to be possible candidates for pre-order bonuses for Dead Space 2 when the game launches in Q1 of 2011.
