The media got a chance to play the latest build of Dead Space 2 at EA's Studio Showcase event recently. Here's the full control scheme revealed for the first time to the anticipated sequel to Dead Space.
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.
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?
looks great, familiar yet just enough novelty to be interesting. intrigued as to how stasis will be implemented in this one, with these controls.
Hopefully it will be as tense as the first.
damn I hate ps3 shooters that use R1 as the trigger, reason why I bought the first one for the 360. but damn I do want extraction, almost bought a Wii just to play it. anybody played it? is it worth getting the ps3 version over the 360?
Yes, it's absolutely worth it. Not to mention you're getting Extraction for free with Dead Space 2, all you have to do is buy the Move set up, which, in my opinion is a steal!
Depends how badly you want Extraction. I'll be waiting for comparisons first. If the difference is anything like the first, graphically, I'll be getting it for 360, not to mention the superiority of the 360 controller.
