We're not saying Dead Space is coming to Sony's Next Generation Portable (aka PSP2), but if it did, it wouldn't be a port. It would be a brand new entry in the series...
Visceral, developer of the Dead Space games, didn't dismiss the idea of an NGP Dead Space title. In fact, the company's art director Ian Milham told CVG, "I'm absolutely interested in bringing Dead Space 2 to other platforms in the future."
"What's key to us though is that we don't do ports. We don't do shabby conversions onto whatever platform it may be," he added.
For example, when bringing the game to the Wii, Visceral created a brand new game. Dead Space Extraction played "to the Wii's strengths," said Milham.
To reiterate, he added, referring to the NGP or other future platforms, "I'd be into it but I'd want to do something that plays to that platforms strengths rather than just a feeble version of a port."
