As opposed to the collector’s edition, the regular edition of Dead Space 2 on the Playstation 3 will be getting a demo to Dead Space Extraction instead of the full product.
I remind that Dead Space 2 will only available as a Limited Edition on like Need for Speed.
it's available as ltd. etd. and collectors edtition. no regular one. if the lim. etd. only has a demo on it I have to change my preorder....
EA always put demos in their games back on the PS2 i remember NFS:MW had domes like 007 form Russia with love and some other game that i dont remember burnout paradise on the PS3 had demos like BFBC and i think dead space if im not wrong so yah whats new in here ?
did i say something was new? and burnout paradise doesn't have any demos on the disc... bfbc and dead space did not either. at least not on my copies....
Well this is what they said at E3 2010. Jump to 3:00 in the video...
You make no sense. This is good news since you get something extra even if its a regular copy. Still, the exclusive set with be better because of the full game.
This is slightly disheartening... I hope the demo does not mean that Extraction in the limited edition (or whatever) is a PSN download. I mean, it must be a PSN download if a demo comes with the regular edition but I'm hoping EA pull a MOH for those who get the limited edition and have DS Extraction on disc.
Limited edition is same price as regular but its a limited run and includes the full extraction game. Basically if you buy it early you get a whole free game for no extra charge.
I was torn between DS2 and ME2 anyway, since they come out within a week of each other. If the Limited Edition doesn't come with Extraction (the whole game, not just a demo), then this makes my decision a lot easier.
This sucks, But whatever Ill be playing dead space extraction in lbp2 that week.
This article is slightly confusing. There is no 'regular edition' at first. Like several EA games, the 'regular edition' will be the 'limited edition'. So if you pre-order, or get it soon after launch, you'll have either the Limited, or Collectors editions. In fact, go to http://deadspace.ea.com/#!p... and look at the section that states 'Free DS Extraction with Pre-Order of Limited Edition', the link then takes you to amazon's web page which ONLY has a standard and collectors editions. (the gamestop link actually states limited, but also there is no 'regular edition' available for pre-order). Later on, when the first run 'limited edition' runs out, there will likely be a second print which will then only include the demo. Long story short, if you get it at launch/pre-order you WILL get extraction regardless of which version you buy.
Yeah contact your retailer if you have preordered, they have done a bit of a crap job of letting people know imo. Supposedly it was all preorders, now its 2 seperate products, unlike the demons souls black edition etc.
Demo?! They didn't say anything about a demo!
Yeah, at the start it was the whole game!
I'm talking about Extraction. EA never mentioned it being a demo for the standard edition.
I'm also talking about Extraction. At the start, every copy of Dead Space 2 for the PS3 would've contained the full version of Extraction
The Limited edition is the same price, it's just limited. The regular edition will come when the limited ones run out. But I can see that common FUD has won this one. Now everyone believes that you have to buy the more expensive edition of Dead Space 2 to get extraction.
Wait... They said Dead Space 2 limited edition price is same as Dead Space 2 price Whats the point of Dead Space 2 and Limited edition when price is same but one has extraction demo and other has full game?
that's kinda lame.
How is this lame? It only means those who are only interested in buying the regular edition of Dead Space 2 will still be able to try out Extraction. And I've never seen before that Extraction would be available with the regular edition, so the demo is a nice idea. Then of course one could say that a PSN demo would be much better(and I'd agree with that) but since Extraction was released a year ago, people have already seen what it is about, so the demo isn't so important in the end.
Its lame because they explained it poorly, i understood that every ps3 version will have dead space extraction but now its only demo ffs, who the fook needs demo.
I could of probably accepted this if it were not available in a pre-owned copy but this... This is just pathetic. Even people who shell out for a brand-spanking-new one get shafted if it's not the LTD. First, they took out the replica gun for the PS3 version and now this. No buy.
They never took the replica gun out of the PS3 version's collectors edition. Go to the Gamestop site & you'll see it listed with the other stuff. Also, there is no such thing as a regular version of Dead Space 2 for PS3. You have Limited Edition & Collectors Edition. Both will have the full version of Dead Space Extraction. It's like MoH's Limited Edition where they had Frontline on the disc. If there was a PS3 version of a regular version then it would be $50 as the Limited Edition is $60.
Why post that when clearly the whole article is about there being 3 editions you just confound ppls confusion. Standard comes with demo $59.99 Limited edition comes with extraction $59.99 Collectors comes with all the bonus stuff. $??? depends where you shop
@DeathStroke: In Europe, Australia and New Zealand there is no replica gun for the PS3 version, only X360 and PC receive it. There are other countries outside the US - bizarre yet true. And as pork_chop_express stated below there three different bundles available - regular, limited and collectors. Get your facts straight before you attempt at proving someone wrong.
Regular edition? We have only Limited and Collector's. Both have Dead Space Extraction
thats suxs. And buying the game separatly will probably match prices with the collectors edition minus all the goodies. If you want extraction the collectors is the best bang for the buck. If you dont care about extraction get the standard edition
I didn't even know there was a regular edition on PS3, Shopto.net only lists the limited edition and it's £38.
I never knew about a regular edition either. It's like MoH with both games on one disc. Thats how its come across when mentioned by EA at E3. The PS3 version (whatever Edition it is, Ltd, special, collecters) will have the full game of extraction on the disc with Dead Space 2. Nowhere have I heard EA or anyone else say anything about just a demo.
There's a regular edition??? The special edition better not cost extra...
as much as i love Dead space and silly arcade rail shooters Extraction sucked.....i had to force myself to play it on the wii to get the story can't wait for dead space too tho ^^ collectors ed will be mine
Since ill get the Regular edition sometime, "Dead Space Extraction" better come out to PSN. I personally think it will i dont think EA would screw us over like that.
I guess the Limited Edition is just that, limited. So when that initial run runs out there will be a regular edition without Extraction. Or am I wrong about this? Now I'm getting confused to. Somebody better get EA to clarify this...
Nope this article is confusing the facts. There is the Limited Edition and the Collectors edition, both contain Extraction. When the Limited Edition runs out, there will be a regular edition, and that will only get a demo. Damn examiner for trying to confuse us, damn you to hell...
I know it's not always wise to form an early opinion of something based off of just a demo or sample, but I actually deleted this thing after playing 5 minutes of it. In almost every conceivable way, this was Dead Space 1. I simply cannot stand it when developers are afraid to expand their horizons because of the success of their 1st title. I need more proof that there are at least some differences here....
Dead Space 1 was pretty much perfect as an action-oriented horror game. More of the same is perfectly fine with me. Exactly what changes did you want the developers to make?
New scenery and or visuals (kind of like what Uncharted spoils us with) Not a copy and past of textures from the Ishumura. I thoroughly enjoyed Dead Space, but I do not want more of same from a sequel. I expect more than a retreading. *EDIT* Actually, a good example (again just basing off of a demo) would be Bioshock. That sequel was more of the same sh*t. The original devs were right to move forward with Infinity.
There is no regular edition and all copies of Dead Space 2 limited or collector will have extraction on it. This is not from some random site but from the exec at EA so which would you believe?
EA's strategy to give incentive to buy their games early by including (or rather enable) extra contents on the 1st print by calling it Limited Edition. It's a very clever and cheap for EA because it's easy to disable or remove certain contents from the later prints.
im so confused so please bear with me and pick the correct one dead space extraction included in the non limited and limited ver. deadspace extraction full game on disc in limited version. extraction only available if you preorder the game otherwise ur stuck with the demo of it. if u just bought it from the store shelves theres no extraction or there is?
Not hard to find limiteds, especially at the same price. I can still find copies of Bad Company Gold Edition and ModNation Racers with 'limited edition Sackboy' to this day. Everything came up roses with EA's Divine Edition of Dante's Inferno and Medal of Honor with HD remix so I'm not concerned with EA this time either. Especially since the game's a day one Collector's Edition buy for me anyway.
Cool! Now every DS fan will have a chance to try Extraction... Unless I'm missing something... Which I probably am.
Walmart.com shows the Collector's edition having the full Extraction game and the other version having only the demo (shows a cover pic that states only the demo).
