Sega's released a new trailer for House of the Dead 4, the PS3 port of its sci-fi/horror arcade shooter from the mid-2000s. The game's also been priced and dated: the company says it'll be hitting PSN on April 17, with a pricetag of $9.99. You could spend that much on the arcade machine in a day's play, and you probably wouldn't even get to see the whole game – not to mention having to rub up against all manner of dirty, awful people you don't even know. God bless home gaming.

The PSN version of the game features Move support, unlockable extras such as behind-the-scenes interviews and bonus levels from the game's Special Edition. It's the first and currently only home version of the title – though the game chronologically fits in between the more widely-available Houses of the Deads 2 and 3.
So, if you wanted to, you could follow this up with the predecessor (which is technically sort of a sequel) and try to construct a logical chronology for the titles. By which time, presumably, the idea of having your brains gnawed on by quasi-supernatural Tarot-monsters wouldn't seem like such an awful option.
