    That's Right, Folks

    (This is NOT a screenshot of the Wii version!)​

    EA has confirmed today that the hit J-horror game 'Dead Space' will be coming to the Wii! The game will be a port of the 360/PS3 title, and EA promises to keep it "high quality". The game is apparently due out earlier this year.

    Dammit War! I was just finishing posting this! [​IMG]

    IGN says EA is doing a new game and not simply a port.. I'm skeptical about it since it's EA but.. the controls could be awesome. Now, they should hire the guys from High Voltage to do this [​IMG]

    I really doubt they will make it a completely different game. I'm a little disappointed by the port, I wish it would have stayed 360/PS3 only... ah well.

    I think everyone knows that [​IMG]

    I think I'll stick to the 360 for this

    It would be better for EA if it wasn't a port that way those with a Wii and one of the others would actually want it as well as those without a PS3/360/PC.

    EA are kinda hit and miss with whatever console they are on.

    How can you be disappointed by a game you haven't even seen yet!?

    IGN says they're doing something new: http://wii.ign.com/articles/950/950714p1.html
    They also gave a hint at this game on an article, some weeks ago.. so I think they know what they are talking about.

    John Riccitiello focused on how they want to bring quality to the Wii.. of course, Ubisoft said the same thing some time ago [​IMG]'
    Well, I finished the PC version and Dead Space could gain a lot from Wii controls, just hope they don't screw the graphics :/

    Well Ubisoft have said that Red Steel II will come out in 2010 so that it can have more dev time plus they got some good devs on the Turtles fighter. I'm sure the Imagine/Petz titles will still appear, they do seem to fund Ubisoft.

    Now its Activisions turn to up its game.

    I'm not saying it's disappointing, I'm saying I'M disappointed because I wanted it to remain 360/PS3 only.

    Yay. Great news.

    Tried it on my 360 but never got to play it.

    I hope it's gonna be a cool Wii-enhanced port like RE4Wii [​IMG]

    "j-horror" game? Dead Space was developed by a western studio.

    I have a feeling that this is going to be trash. Please prove me wrong EA.

    I could easily imagine this game having terrible graphics, which is not good because the graphics made the game better on 360 because it was lacking in more areas. Hopefully they add more enemies to the Wii version, because there wasn't much of a variety in the 360 version. Then when the enemies got harder they basically did a color swap and made them black, which was lazy as fuck.

    So much negativity!!

    Smile guys....its not the end of the world!!

    So what if the game ends up on the Wii....why not?Why must it remain only on PS3/Xbox??

    The more games to choose from, the merrier i say!!
    Any date approx??

    I think every game that uses a pointer to aim is going to be way better on Wii. Yesterday I saw a Review for Killzone2 on the PS3 and the guys cross-hair was all over the place, because he wasn`t playing with mouse or if you look at all the videos of the RE5 Demo... Analogstick was never good for aiming!

    The Gfx really don`t matter that much to me but the framerate does! So I really hope they make every effort to get the game to be fluently. That`s my only concern but I think EA did some really good jobs in porting games on Wii or doing exclusive version, so I think this will gonna be great!

    Really creepy atmosphere and superb graphics.

    YES! That is exactly what i would hope for as well.

    Speaking of- Am i the only person that thought Dead Space was VERY much a spiritual successor to RE4? Controls, style of atmosphere (no, NOT actual locations [​IMG]), etc? DS felt like RE4 in space, to me.

    And i LOVED how RE4 handled on the Wii. Played the hell out of RE4 on GC (beat it many times in a row) and was completely renewed into liking the game w/ the Wii controls. I really think DS could benefit from this.

    Dunno about the rest of you, but i'll be keeping my hopeful eyes on this one.

    Experience.
    Let's be honest here, what could the Wii version POSSIBLY offer to make up for the things it'll inevitably lack?
    Gimmicky bonus shit like extra weapons and costumes?
    The original lives from its deep atmosphere and great graphics, and the Wii version just won't be able to deliver any of that (with the same level of quality as the original) no matter what, so the port IS going to suck (and I don't give a flying fuck if EA says otherwise, because what else would you expect them to say? "Oh, we're sorry, this port is so not gonna match the quality of the original, but hey, look at these fancy new weapons!"). It's obvious, and it's nowhere in the range of what a bit of point-and-waggle controls or bonus content could EVER fix.
    The port will be an inferior substitute of the original game for people who don't own an X360 or PS3, and that'll be all there is to this product.
    Even if the game ends up looking astoundingly good for a Wii game, the graphics will still suck in comparison to the original. Why would you even need screenshots to be assured of that, when the inferior video output signal alone will make the Wii version a vastly less visually pleasing experience, let alone the shitload of effects, shaders and filters the Wii port would never be able to make use of?
    And how in the world could the graphics NOT matter in a horror game? They're basically what MAKES a horror game, and that's also why it's beyond my understanding how people are already getting all hyped up for the port because of nothing but a new control scheme. I just don't see how motion controls (including the use of Wii MotionPlus) could benefit the game more than some appropriate graphics. Yes, SOME games will undoubtedly benefit more from the use of motion controls than from proper graphics, but we're not talking about Wii Sports here.

    That aside, I don't give a shit for this game if it's just a straight port. Actually I'd be way more pissed if this is an original game, because that would just be a huge waste of potential, only on behalf of EA shovelling even more money. I'm totally aware that this choice would actually make a lot of sense for them, but we're not them, so why would we care? All I care about is what I'm getting for my money, and if one day I get the fucking awesome Dead Space on X360/PS3 for 60 bucks, and the other day I'm only getting an abysmal cash-in sequel, then I'm totally not interested.
