House of the Dead Remake Adds PS Move Support for Arcade Lightgun Experience

The House of the Dead Remake is a relatively authentic recreation of SEGA’s seminal arcade shooter, but without a lightgun in hand, it just doesn’t feel quite right. PS Move support was, of course, promised prior to release and has been officially patched in today. You’ll need to update your game – and make sure you have a PS Camera adaptor if you’re playing on PS5 – to use your motion wands.

You can use the zapper-style shell if you want to, and the PSVR Aim Controller – which was primarily invented for PSVR, of course – is also supported. None of these quite offer a true arcade experience – you’re still effectively controlling a cursor, after all – but it is better than an analogue stick. If you’re planning to test this out, do let us know how you get on in the comments section below.

Add this to the extremely short list of non-vr PS4 games that use the PS Camera/Move. The only other titles I can think of off the top of my head are Playroom, LBP3 and Tearaway Unfolded.

I used to love this functionality on PS3 in titles such as Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Sports Champions, Beat Sketcher, and a few others. But the inescapable drift issue ruined the experience every time, especially with the otherwise excellent Sharpshooter peripheral.
