Sega is following through on its promise to bring House of the Dead 4 to the PlayStation Network. Today, the company announced on the PlayStation Blog that the shooter will arrive on April 17.

House of the Dead 4 comes to life on the PSN next month.

Previously, the game was scheduled to debut on the digital storefront sometime this spring. House of the Dead 4 for the PSN will boast high-definition graphics, trophies, and PlayStation Move compatibility. It will bear a $10 price tag.

An early demo for the game will be made available exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers beginning April 10. Additionally, PlayStation Plus members who choose to purchase House of the Dead 4 will score a 30 percent discount on the game, as well as an exclusive PlayStation 3 dynamic theme and avatars.

House of the Dead 4's arrival on PSN follows House of the Dead 3, which made its debut on Sony's virtual storefront February 14.

I bought Move a few days ago, so I'm glad to hear this. I wonder if it will be over-the-top and trashy like HOTD:Overkill or cheesy and.... Well, cheesy like the old HOTD games.

Well here's a game that will actually make good use of the pink ball wavy around thingy. Ok, ok...I have to say that this game probably is a good fix for Sony's Move. I hope it does well and that Sega delivers a game with upgraded graphics and sound for the ps3. This should be a good one. Gosh that hurt. LOL

If you are a playstation fanboy take the following 2 steps. 1. Claim this is great and a good move for Sony. 2. Go to the Xbox boards and trash the kinect for on rails shooters. Jokes aside though I've always found House of the Dead a fun series so it's nice to see it getting put on the console with Move support and at that price it is a really good deal.

That's awesome! Hopefully they can make a PC version too but I'm not sure that's going to happen since the latest House of the Dead game was only on the Wii and PS3 :( Oh well if I ever get a Move I'm definitely going to get this game, hell I might end up getting the game and just use the controller. I've been dying to play this game ever since I heard of it back in 2006

Guys, I wouldn't complain about HOTDII, I would complain about the first one, it was released on the Saturn and the PC ages ago and in the case of the Saturn version it's super rare (The US version). HotDII however was released on the Dreamcast, PC, Wii and the Xbox (As an unlockable) and none of those releases are rare.

House of the Dead 2 (Dreamcast/Wii) was the best in the series. 'nuff said.

I have to agree with you in wanting to see HotD2 ported, but they should just port HotD4 now so it's finished. Then afterwards, hopefully Sega will port HotD2 as I found that game a lot funner than HotD3.
