First one was my favorite game of last gen, hope it doesn't go half-assed cross gen

while I don't think it was as good as bioshock, the setting for me was what made it better for me. These were the two games that I thought had the best atmosphere and really made me feel like I was in the game, nothing else last Gen did though there were a ton of great games.

Dead space 1-2 easily is better than bioshock in every way too Me...
I think when you factor in all these horror games coming out being less action oriented, I would assume EA will follow suit and at least make DS4 similar to the first one, which would be great!
joab777  +   469d ago
I agree. Hopefully they go back to their roots and push it further in the survival horror direction.

I wouldnt be against a reboot in this situation. And no offense but Visceral didn't decide and come up with the idea to make a Battlefield game. It was thrust on them by EA, and it's a shame.

i thought EA said they were done with the franchise after how poorly ds3 performed?
smashman98  +   469d ago
lol they never said that
Jonny5isalive  +   469d ago
ohh I thought it was going to be dead space 5/ s
Septic  +   471d ago
I hope this isn't a cross-gen title.
Sir_Simba  +   469d ago
EA wants that money, Hardline shouldve moved on but it didnt and now look at it.
k3rn3ll  +   469d ago
Considering this game would be at least 2 years out I don't think it would be. This article is kinda ridiculous to that point. Of course the next dead space game will be the first on new gen consoles. There's no possible way for it not to be. They aren't going to release one 2+ years from now and have it be ps3 and 360 only
Volkama  +   469d ago
It's "likely" to be the first one on next gen.

Which means they are still open to the idea of releasing remasters of any or all of the first 3 games ;)
maniacmayhem  +   469d ago
God...I hope it's a return to what made part one so fantastic. This is a classic example of how a franchise could be steered so wrong and so quickly due to popularity and big business greed.

It went from a survival horror to a co-op shooter with just three entries.
Benjammin25  +   469d ago
Dead Space 1 is a masterpiece. 2 was good but steered a bit too much towards action. 3 is one of my most hated games from last gen. Hope 4 gets things back on track.
incendy35  +   469d ago
I could never get into this series. I tried.
thorstein  +   469d ago
Next Gen though?

Well, maybe they can make another game for this gen. I really don't want to wait 6-8 years for another Dead Space game.
joab777  +   469d ago
Of course it's gonna b next gen. U think Dead Space 4 coming in 2016 will be for the ps3? Some titles should b different.
mixelon  +   469d ago
I see what you did there..

I think? XD
thorstein  +   469d ago
Yes you did, joab, however, did not.
Chaos_Raiden  +   469d ago
Awesome. Would be glad to buy a PS4 with many other games like Uncharted 4:A Thief's End, Infamous: Second Son, Infamous: First Light, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Order: 1886 and Assassin's Creed: Unity.

I have dead space 3 on my PC i've played it for exactly 13mins
CorndogBurglar  +   469d ago
That makes sense. Dead Space 3 sucked and is not the entry to judge the series by.

1 and 2 were fantastic.
Sir_Simba  +   469d ago
I actually played both to the end except for this one.
gantarat  +   469d ago
It's not bad game
MysticStrummer  +   469d ago
No it's not a bad game at all. Lots of fun as a co-op game.
WeAreLegion  +   469d ago
Yeah. That makes sense. What did you think they'd make next? Dead Space 5?
Dirtnapstor  +   469d ago
DS3 was a good game, it just wasn't the Dead Space like we all loved. DS2 had a good blend. Looking forward to the 4th installment. Just hope that they listened to all the feedback after DS3 was released and don't go that route again.

Funny... When playing DS2 and I came across the Ishimura, my heart sank and I felt the dread again. That's the type of tension I want!
gantarat  +   469d ago
i want to isaac team up carver again
jimjam3442  +   469d ago
all the recent delays at ea are a great thing. shows ea is trying to improve quality.

on topic: if they made dead space4 idk. isaac in my mind is no longer mr badass necro killer. hes whiny heartbroken isaac. "ellie?" "ellie!" "ELLIE NO!" takes up 60% of the dialog in ds3 plus the ending hinting at an earth setting? did they forget the word "space" is in the title? its not called dead land.
make it take place on the colonies of aegis 7 and on the ishimura when stuff whent to s*** and it not me a light gun game.
bloodybutcher  +   469d ago
Well, Earth is in space, so...
jimjam3442  +   469d ago
i disagree, earth is not in space. (i agreed btw)
turdburgler1080  +   469d ago
Aaaaand it's a xbox one exclusive.
TomRL  +   469d ago
weirdo  +   469d ago
ds3 is total dross!! if ds4 is anything like that then count me out. the first two are f.a.b.
PockyKing  +   469d ago
Title is nonsense ha. Where else would it release? Gamecube?
-Foxtrot  +   469d ago
Would anyone want a direct sequel after how much they screwed the story up in Dead Space 3 and ruined the characters.

I'd rather they see them start fresh, maybe a reboot-remake set back on the Ishimura re-telling the story in a new, updated light.
gantarat  +   469d ago
I personally believe that Carver should of been the main character in DS3 and not Isaac ( He Should be Support Character ).

Dead Space 1 and 2 already had very impressive graphics, so i'm excited to see it on new gen systems.

They just need to get back to the basics of 1 and 2 though. Clostrophobic, enclosed levels. The 3rd one was a disappointment. The series was starting to pull a Resident Evil and focus more on action, which was a shame considering most people loved Dead Space because it felt more like an oldschool style survival horror in an age where RE sold out and went towards a more action based game.
alb1899  +   469d ago
This game could be the next MS's exclusive to buy or resident evil......I can see it happen.

Benjammin25  +   469d ago
You mean timed exclusive? It's not going to happen by the way. EA and Capcom love money too much to ever make a game exclusive to one platform.
mixelon  +   469d ago
If RE7 comes out like six I don't think anyone would care where it ends up. :/
Plagasx  +   469d ago
Hopefully they make it more like Dead Space 1 this time.
trenso1  +   469d ago
so we are going to have to wait until ps5 and Xbox(____),Nintendox

"with horror,if you repeat the same scary tricks ,people get too used to it "
" So, to satisfy customers as you create more and more sequels ... "
"... We put in more action to try and satisfy a greater number of people "
"With Most Game developers. it's not intentional,but in naturally just leans more
toward actions."
" I Myself went down that same path too."

If they make another, they should back to its roots from Dead Space 1. Everybody was praising it for being the game that replaced Resident Evil after it became and action game, but then Dead Space went that route too. How sad and disappointing.

It's such a shame people hate Dead Space 3 so much.
In my opinion the game was amazing. Was it as scary as the first two? No, of course not. But it still was an incredible experience mainly because of Isaac who is a very likeable protagonist that you can root for.

Here's hoping for a DS4 that's set on Earth or around it (judging by the way the last DLC ended).
