Visceral “interested” in Dead Space for NGP

Top game franchises like Uncharted, Call of Duty, Killzone, and Resistance have already been confirmed for Sony’s Next Generation Portable (NGP). Visceral Games, developer of Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno, recently weighed in on the possibility of bringing their titles to the platform.

“I’m absolutely interested in bringing Dead Space 2 to other platforms in the future,” Dead Space 2 art director Ian Milham told CVG, “what’s key to us though is that we don’t do ports. We don’t do shabby conversions onto whatever platform it may be.

“When we did Dead Space: Extraction it was a quality game that uses and plays to the Wii’s strengths, which is the same as the movies and comic books,” he said.

Developing a Dead Space title for NGP would mean that the game would have to be created from the ground up, specifically for the platform.

Milham concluded: “When it comes to the [NGP] or any other future platforms I’d be into it but I’d want to do something that plays to that platforms strengths rather than just a feeble version of a port.”
