Thoughts:
I find House of the Dead: Overkill’s Amazon.com sale rank really impressive compared to Dead Space: Extraction’s and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles’.
I don’t know if it’s simply the price of House of the Dead: Overkill being lower, or because the House of the Dead name is associated with rail shooters, as to why House of the Dead: Overkill is performing so well on Amazon.com.

Question:
Sega released House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return($16.00 new now!) on the Wii in March 2008 and House of the Dead: Overkill was released on the Wii in February 2009.
Do you think Wii owners will get a new House of the Dead game sometime in the remainder of 2010?


Also, if you do/don’t like me using a “jump break” please let me know.  I’m trying different ways keeping the main page to look more streamlined with shorter posts.
