Top 5 Games Wii Want to See On PlayStation Move

May 21, 2010Written by Cameron Teague

There has been a lot of talk since Sony announced the PlayStation Move about how it would work like an HD Wii and what games from the Nintendo platform should be or could be ported over. The Nintendo Wii has seen a variety of solid games since its inclusion but imagine those games with some graphical power behind them. These games found issue selling well on the family oriented Wii but probably could do better on a more hardcore console like the PS3. So stand up, put your body in motion and check out the Top 5 Wii Games we would love to see announced for the PS3 at E3.


When Sega first announced the game for the Nintendo Wii many people figured this was exactly what the Wii needed, a mature game. Madworld drops players into a world very similar to that of the Sin City movie, featuring a highly artistic look and over the top blood. Sadly, as with most 3rd party games on the Wii, it did not reach very high sales despite receiving favorable review scores. This game could greatly benefit from the hardware in the PS3 and the more mature audience of the PlayStation 3.

Red Steel 2

The original Red Steel was a general disaster with critics and in the sales column but brought forth a very interesting concept and gameplay. The 2nd game looks to have greatly improved on the series and what better way to improve then to branch out to another console and audience? There have been plenty of rumors on the game coming over to the PlayStation 3 and it would be a welcome addition to the Moves already robust library when it launches later this year.

House of the Dead Overkill

Its House of the Dead, an on-rails shooter with a sense of humor akin to Pulp Fiction. That’s enough to want the game on the PS3 and like the other games on the list, it would do great with the crowd on the PS3. The game takes place 7 years before the events of the original House of the Dead. Again the game saw poor sales on the Wii and proved once again that the Nintendo crowd just isn’t right for these types of games, especially one as vulgar as Overkill.

Dead Space Extraction

Want to go back to the events before the original Dead Space but you don’t want to buy a Wii? Well all this could be solved if Dead Space: Extraction releases on the PS3 and the Move. This would give PS3 owners a great chance to get a look at the events that led up to Isaac finding the Ishimura in its state of chaos. Yes its another on-rails shooter and most of these games on the list are, but it would be a great chance to kill you some baddies.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Everyone seems to love the Resident Evil franchise and last year found a new take on the series with Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, exclusive for the Nintendo Wii. The plot here circles mostly around the personal stories and tragedies involved in RE2 and RE: Code Veronica. Yet again, its another rail shooter and for those of us who have really enjoyed the RE series, this would be a great way to welcome in the Move controller.
