Give me DS2 with MOVE and it will be day one. Otherwise I'll get it when it drop in price. Dead Space, overall, is the best horror franchise this gen but I'm not that of a fan so I can wait.

I still think it's awesome we get Extraction for free. lol If you've got both 360 and PS3, you'd be dumb not to get the PS3 version. I'm so glad to see Sony supporting hardcore gamers by implementing the Move in all these hardcore titles like this, Socom 4, LBP2, etc.
Off topic here, but did anyone else hear that you can use a keyboard and mouse to build levels in LBP2?? That's going to make it soooo much easier to build levels! I'm very excited for that game.

Agreed, Extraction being free with the PS3 version is awesome. It's pretty obvious which version is the better deal.

EA have been showing crazy amounts of love for the PS3. Good job EA, keep it up.

I know about Extraction, but that one is on rails. I'll be getting the game anyway but I feel it is a wasted opportunity because DS2 could make very good use of MOVE.

I hope they fixed Foot Stomp. It was kinda inaccurate in DS1.

Would have thought they'd be the same as the first games controls for DS3.

They are pretty much the exact same for what matters. They moved heal and stasis to different buttons and moved the inventory all to the d-pad and select button, otherwise unchanged.

Missing from the list is Kinesis and Zero-G Jump actions.

I noticed that Isaac can now float while in zero gravity, I wonder if the controls will be different then.

Looks like a nice familiar system, I might struggle with it a little since I'm planning on playing both games back to back.

CryofSilence2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

They're practically identical except for the increased emphasis on stasis/kinesis and healing/items. It'll just make it easier. You shouldn't have any problems. :)

Can't wait. Can I play extraction with a regular controller or will it require Move?
