See The Girls From Dead or Alive Rendered For PSP

By Spencer . January 22, 2010 . 2:13am

Dead or Alive: Paradise takes all of the “excitement” of poolside photography and scales it down for the PSP. How does it look?


Find out by watching the first trailer for the game.



New Zack Island has mini-games such as beach volleyball and a brand new casino to gamble at. But, the point of this game, just like other entries in the Dead or Alive Xtreme series, is to take pictures of the DoA girls plus Rio, a cameo character from Temco’s pachinko games, in skimpy swimwear.

    So its basically the same game for the 360 but with a new character. If it was a whole new game I probably would of bought it, but I have already put way too many hours into the 360 version to do it again. Maybe next time Tecmo.

      WTF @ 2:09-2:14 in the video.

    Wasn’t this the game that was only released for the XBox because “only the XBox could handle the graphics”? It’s funny as the game looks fantastic in the PV; the PSP really deserves to have more credit for what it can do: it’s basically a handheld PS2, though games like Kingdom Hearts BBS show that there are still some major issues (such as severe loading problems).

    • malek86

      Well, it’s clearly below the Xbox level. The girls are nicely done, but it seems that the enviroment suffered.Then again, any game could be done on any console, as long as you adjust the graphics. Don’t let corporate BS get to you. We should be used to it by now.

      • JeremyR

        Yeah, Rumble Roses showed that DoA style women could be done on the PS2, but at the expense of the environment.

        Guess if this does well, Konami will bring that to the PSP…

          What about DoA2(Dreamcast) and DoA2 Hardcore(PS2?)

          It’s not that the PS2 couldn’t handle it, it’s that Itagaki has a thing against Sony. Once the XBOX came out, that’s the reason why the Dead or Alive series and Ninja Gaiden series were exclusive to that system.

          Ninja Gaiden Sigma was ported from the XBOX by another group of people and he was gone before the release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

          Itagaki stated he liked to develop for the most powerful system which is why he exclusively developed for the 360. Later stated wouldn’t ever develop for the PSP because of the handhelds power as he deemed worthless to develop on a powerful conventional handheld when it could be done on a console.

          He’s a great developer, but the mans statements make him a hypocrite. He should have just said what everyone knows is true. That he doesn’t develop for Sony due to his dislike of the company.

          But yeah. We wouldn’t be seeing this game if he was still with Tecmo. Tecmo screwed him over so he quit and sued along with other Team Ninja employees.

          It’s weird that both the first games of Rumble Roses and DoAX were more fun than their better looking sequels.. well, I imported Rumble Roses, couldn’t stand the Eng. dub..

    • JeremyR

      I think some of that is laziness. With the data install being common, I think developers are not optimizing any more. They had gotten quite good at it.

      For instance, I bought Phantasy Star Portable (the original) recently, and it’s basically got no loading times, you can even speed through the voices lines and not get any pauses. I was worried about it, was going to buy the PSN version, but I guess it’s never coming, so when the UMD was on sale I got that. But I’ve been quite pleasantly surprised.

      I remember buying Generation of Chaos when I bought my first PSP, and it couldn’t even go through sentences of text (!) without a pause for loading.

      Another example would be the Disgaea series – quicker loading times than the PS2 versions.

      I expect this to be bad, though. Loading was bad on the Xbox.

    • Aoshi00

      I just tried KH BBS last night, the load time was pretty bad even w/ install, really sucks for an action game…

  • JeremyR

    Could you even take photos in the first one? I don’t remember, actually.

    Anyway, I hope in this you can actually play volleyball (I’ve heard conflicting things, and a whopping 1.5 seconds of the trailer is volleyball). That was actually one of the funnest games I’ve played. Simple, but just fun.

    They really broke it in the sequel. Tried to make it more complicated.

    Is it just me, or is going back to the last-gen, mostly-stays-there hair somehow a step up from Xtreme 2?

    • TreeFrog

      I have to agree – the floppy strips-of-paper hair on DoAX2 was just a bit rubbish.

    • malek86

      Yeah, good to see I’m not the only one who thought their hair in DOAX2 was just plain weird.

  • New Zack Island: The New NEW Jack City?

    Maybe because it’s been a while since I last saw anything DOA, but like a few people here already said, the look seems off.
