Okay, look: it's winter. It's cold and nasty. Many of us find ourselves dreaming of far-away places where there's sand, water and babes aplenty.

That's why we're updating you with new media for the upcoming Dead or Alive Paradise for the PSP, which should release some time during the second quarter of this year. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it's essentially a handheld remake of the Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball titles for the Xbox 360. The PSP version boasts all those enticing little mini games, lounging sessions by the pool, a few extra characters and oh yeah, a bit of volleyball, too. First, feel free to check out all the new screenshots , loaded with lots of bikini fun; afterward, watch the new trailer that is already starting to get some attention.

The DoAX games on the 360 didn't exactly tear down high review scores but we should probably remember Tecmo's claim: they're what they like to call "leisure games." Apparently, "leisure" also includes a lot of scantily clad, impossibly proportioned ladies bouncing around and spreading suntan lotion on themselves but hey, that can be "leisurely." What, you think it won't sell well? Maybe it won't, but don't dismiss it so quickly! Hawaii is just so far away…

This was made for a certain reason, and it's NOT the same reason for Bayonetta's creation.

Wow, Anyone remember when DOA used to be a fighting game? What ever happened to that?

Dead or Alive: Bikini fashion show just doesn't have the same ring to it…

Or Dead or Alive: Volleyball even…I don't think I've ever heard of a high volleyball death rate before..but whatever.

But I agree with highlander, they don't seem to be trying to advertise that this game might actually have some kind of substance to it. It's all about T&A so don't expect anything more.

Absolutely, but they're idiots when it comes to porn. They have no problem showing a girl get bukaked by a dozen guys but they pixelate gentiles. That's like showing a guy get his head cut off but blurring out the axe doing it.

I have to ask everyone jumping on the bandwagon of dismissing this as 'pervy' or pr0n, how is this game any worse than the kinds of posters that Teenage boys put on their walls, or the wallpapers that they put on their phones, PDAs, PSPs, game consoles or PCs? It's not even remotely in the same league as even the softest pr0n, and yet it's being classified similarly.

As for the argument that it's somehow sad or weird to find the images titillating. Perhaps you can make that argument, but I can also point to a whole crapload of legitimate art that is no more real, and just as titillating as anything here. Good lord, did no one ever wonder why Wonder Woman and all the other female Super Heroes and Super Villains from Marvel and DC have skin tight costumes, huge disproportionately large breasts and buttocks and the thighs of a Samoan rugby player. How are these scantily clad figures in western comics not equally dismissed as 'pervy' or pr0n?

I'm a happy owner of DOAX on the old box, hacked for my pleasure. It's cool to play with them naked, but if I played the game naked myself, then you could call me nuts.

I think it's really, REALLY sad and depressing when someone who takes the time to write more than four words on the Internet is seen as weird or as someone who needs to "lighten up."

Congrats to technology for erasing literary ability.

I thought dead or alive was an xbox exclusive. I never knew there would be a dead or alive game on a playstation product before.

TheHighlander

Dead or Alive ++ was on the original Playstation in 1998. Dead or Alive 2 was on Playstation 2 in 2000 (Japan got two versions of this on PS2 in the year 2000, DOA2 and DOA2 Hard*core – no seriously). The Xbox didn't see Dead or Alive until more than a year later in 2001 with DOA3, and it would appear (based on the lack of PS versions after DOA2) that Microsoft paid for exclusivity. I guess that exclusivity is over now…

Other than DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball (Xbox), and the follow-up on Xbox360 called DOA Xtreme 2, the game is/was a brawler/fighter game.

I've got DOA2 on Dreamcast as well. Still the smoothest presentation.

Well, I suppose I could get this game for those times when I wanna play a game, but don't feel like killing something. Every game I own has me killing stuff… Zombies, Las Plagas, Dracula, Skeletons, Dragons, Genma, Ninjas, Dark Genies, Heartless, Nobodies, Skeith, Mundus, Marionettes, 7 Hells, Argosax, The Despair Embodied, Arkham (AND THE POWER OF SPARDA), Harry McDowell, Liquid Snake, Solidus Snake, The Boss, Cobra Units, FoxHound, GRU Soldiers…

Let me stop before I lose it. In any case, you get the idea. I would welcome this as a break from the norm.

May I suggest to you "Flower"? That game rocks and is very much about bringing things to life.
Anyways, it's an amazing game.
