EA and Visceral's Dead Space Extraction didn't find the audience it deserved on Wii, but perhaps it will on Xbox 360 and PS3.

According to a recent survey, EA is contemplating bringing the on-rails survival horror to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PSN. The survey suggests the game would retain the "guided first-person experience" of the Wii title, but will be presented in "full HD" with a tentative $15 price tag.

Sounds good, but we're not entirely sold on the idea of an on-rails shooter, especially when light-guns aren't exactly common in the PS3/Xbox 360 gamer's collection.

The Dead Space downloadable games don't end with the Extraction port, with a title called Planet Cracker, an extension to the Dead Space 2 story, also detailed by the survey. Described as a "resource strategy game where players will manage a CEC Mining operation," Planet Cracker will yield in-game rewards for Dead Space 2, in a similar fashion to Fable II and Fable II Pub Games.

Interestingly, both titles were also mentioned as possible pre-order incentives for those putting their money down for Dead Space 2.

I hope they don't ruin this franchise by milkiing it too much too soon. The first game was great and I'm really looking forward to the second game too.
I'm not sure about extraction without a light gun though and the planet cracker thing sounds a bit naff tbh.
I'm expecting Dead Space 2 not to review as well as the first simply because the first game appeared out of nowhere and took people by suprise - I think a lot of people will have high expectations for this one and it may disapoint slightly.*
