If you’re aiming to suffer like G did as authentically as possible, then know that the upcoming House of the Dead Remake is targeting post-release PS Move support. The game – a full ground-up recreation of SEGA’s arcade classic – will attempt to recreate that nostalgic lightgun feel by adding optional support for Sony’s phallic-shaped wands, which is an appreciated addition considering the peripherals are over a decade old.
It’s worth noting that if you’re planning to play the PS4 game on a PS5 then you will need Sony’s camera adaptor in order to use your PS Move on the next-gen console. This is because the new system lacks PS4’s proprietary camera port, so you need an extra dongle to convert the cable to USB. If you’re a PSVR owner, then you can request this for free.
In our opinion, the PS Move never quite replicated lightguns as well as it should, because it acts more like a cursor – but it’ll clearly be more rewarding than an analogue stick. We’re curious whether the game will also support gyro controls, because that seems like a good middle-ground for people who don’t own Sony’s motion wands. We’ll find out in just a few days, as the remake is out on 28th April.
