In just two weeks we'll be playing the first-ever PlayStation House of the Dead game — how about that? If that thought isn't enough to make you come over all unnecessary, perhaps the crossbow-themed trailer below might just tip you over the edge.

Of course the crossbow isn't the first weapon that springs to mind when you think of House of the Dead — after all, the Wii version came with a "hand cannon", not a crossbow — but with appearances in Call of Duty and now this, the old-fashioned weapon might be on something of a comeback.
