Dead Space: Extraction was an impressive game, possibly the best on-rails shooter released for the Wii. But Electronic Arts didn't release Dead Space on the Wii, so it always struck me as a bit odd they'd release a spin-off on a different console. It's not hard to imagine Dead Space: Extraction working on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 once Project Natal and PlayStation Move launch, however, so I asked the Dead Space team at PAX East if that could eventually happen.
"That keeps coming up," said a smiling executive producer Steve Papoutsis.
Clearly, I wasn't the first person to float the idea past him.
"It's definitely something that sounds pretty cool," he said. "That's all you can really say about that."
I was left with the impression that Dead Space: Extraction arriving elsewhere in the future was a distinct possibility. That'd be a nice little treat before Dead Space 2's released, wouldn't it?
