Dead Space 2: No standard PS3 edition, only special edition

Rely on Horror: "With the announcement at E3 that Dead Space 2 will see a special edition exclusive to the PS3, including the once Wii exclusive Dead Space: Extraction, fans were left to wonder what the pricing would be and if there would be other editions of Visceral’s much anticiapted sequel. Well judging by Gamestop’s listing for Dead Space 2, which is up for pre-order, it seems that fans looking to play Isaac’s latest on the PS3 will only have the special edition as a purchasing option, but that’s not bad at all seeing as how the price is equivalent to any other full priced retail release: $59.99 usd."

ZOMG, thank you Visceral Games, thanks EA

More Dead Space for no extra charge? I'm in!!

Granted, the "on rails" angle isn't usually my sort of thing, but for this particular IP - cool.

It's a shame DS:E didn't sell better on the Wii, but that's what you get when you misjudge your target audience.

Very nice pricing for two games.

raztad2852d ago

I love getting Extraction for free, yet I'm disappointed on DS2 not having MOVE support. It should be straightforward to implement MOVE on that game.

Monolith2852d ago

theyll probably patch it in later but yeah i agree

ginsunuva2852d ago

DS2 was confirmed to have Move support at e3.

DigitalAnalog2852d ago


It works on games like Silent Hill: Shattered Memories or RE4 on the Wii. A total waste of potential if they don't implement it.

-End statement

tinybigman2852d ago

the comment post on the article. he said that its greediness on EA's part and he's avoiding part 2 now.

how in the hell did that person come up with that conclusion? this is great value in 2 games for the price of one.

there are too many dumb people in gaming if you ask me.

anyway this is day one for sure.

JumpNPlayBon2852d ago

He's avoiding it because he only has a 360, and this is the ps3 special edition that includes the bonus game. that's the only reason I can think of why anybody would avoid this game.

Question is, what do i play first, extraction or dead space 2 (3 to be exact)

DarK-SilV2852d ago

extraction is prequel to the first game, but if you are new to the game ,I think it is better to play part one fist than extraction than part 2

Kassanova072852d ago

Extraction is a prequel, I suggest you play that first.

R0me2851d ago

Yeah I will start with extraction then dead space 2.

Quagmire2852d ago

Wait. WTF. Didnt EA say that special edition is only available for America? What of the rest of the world? No standard edit for rest of world, or now Special Edit worldwide?

Kassanova072852d ago

I concur my fellow gamer.

I was planning to get Dead Space 2 for PC.

But knowing it have 2 full Games for the price of 1 and Move Compatible for Extraction, buy for PS3 =D.
