House of the Dead: Overkill does 3D two ways

Just because 3D technology has progressed to the point now that you don’t need those red/blue glasses in order to see things popping out of your tv, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still wear them anyway, just because you want to.

SEGA understands, and – as a result – has promised to make House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut compatible with both old-fashioned and new-fangled 3D technology.

If you have a 3D tv, then you’ll be able to enjoy the game in full, stereoscopic 3D – “experience hard core bullets and brain matter so real you’ll need a damp towel”, apparently.

However, if you haven’t gotten around to upgrading your television, you’re still covered. Simply put on a pair of stylish retro paper 3D glasses to enjoy the game in anaglyphic 3D – the full 70s grindhouse experience.

…of course, knowing that you’ll have to get the glasses from somewhere, SEGA‘s also throwing in two pairs of paper specs with boxed copies of the game. The deal is subject to availability, and there’s only a limited number, so if you want some retro with your zombie smashin’, act fast.

That’s not the only option you’ll have when The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut hits PS3 next month. If you want to go standard, then simply plug in your DualShock controller. If you’d like something a little more personal, the game’s also fully compatible with Move.

Looks like you’re covered no matter what style of gameplay you’re after with The House of the Dead – as long as it includes zombies, brains and a lot of gore, anyway.
