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

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.
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.
