Sega is making good on its promise to bring House of the Dead games to the PlayStation 3. The previously vague "spring" release date for House of the Dead 4 has been solidified: PS3 owners can blast more zombies on April 17.

As reported on the PlayStation Blog, House of the Dead 4 is the console version of the arcade rail shooter, and it uses the PlayStation Move peripheral. It looks like a pretty straightforward release – zombies are everywhere, and you shoot them either by yourself or in two-player co-op. A few extras (like additional levels and a creator interview) have also been thrown into the package, which will set you back $9.99.
