House of the Dead: OVERKILL Extended Cut heading to PS3. Goregasm!

Sega has announced a PS3 remake of House of the Dead: Overkill, the grindhouse shoot-em-up formerly only available on Nintendo Wii. This is frankly awesome news, not least because most of the game's few flaws were down to the hardware constraints of the Wii itself. No more blurriness, no more slowdown… look at these screenshots! As if that wasn't enough, there will be new levels, Move support and 3D too. I'm so excited, I might just burst (a zombie head or ten).

In case you missed the game first time round (most did), be prepared for one of the most brilliantly-realised game concepts ever made. The grainy film filter, the deliberate continuity errors and, of course, the potty mouth of Agent Isaac Washington, combine to make this a sublime tribute to low-budget, '70s horror flicks. There will be two new scenarios on top of the six levels from the original game - we're guessing developer Headstrong is making it longer in order to reclaim its Guinness World Record for sweariest game ever made, which was snatched by Mafia II.

Gary Knight of SEGA said: “The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut on Playstation 3 will send players to the shrieking mad heart of mutant mayhem. This time we went further, faster and bloodier than before. We extended everything, even the title.” Good man.

The game is scheduled for release on October 28 in Europe and October 25 in the US. We're going to be all over this one, but for now just soak in these first screens of the new game and then head over to this feature and see why you're going to love it.

    Hmm, I smell something... It's irony! Remember when Sony laughed at Nintendo for their motion control and 'PS2 ports'? Yeah? Then Sony went and created their own version of the Wii Remote, and are now getting games from then console they used to mock? Pure Irony! This really does prove that Sony suck in all ways possible.

    The worst thing about the Wii version(and there wasn't much as lightgun games go it was amazingly good)was the slight slowdown when you had a busy screen and you'd think PS3 would get rid of that right away and also help with minor annoyances like the lack of different enemy models(they often used the same one i a different coloured, but the same, shirt)and the odd bit of bluriness. Whatever,if they have extra content i'm there as the added accuracy can't hurt either. LOADS of swearing and they should still have had the most swears per hour title anyway. Mafia2 has a lot of swearing, no doubt, but Overkill is NON STOP swearing and was only beaten by 2K because of that fact(Mafia being way, way longer).
