Dead Space 2 Demo Infests PSN Today

by Jay Frechette, Community Manager, Visceral Games

Dead Space 2 for PS3Dead Space 2 for PS3

Hello Dead Space fans! Today the single player demo for Dead Space 2 is available on the PlayStation Store! We can’t wait for you guys to play it and wanted to share a couple details of what to expect.

In the Dead Space 2 demo, you will take engineer Isaac Clarke on a terrifying adventure through the Church of Unitology, what appears to be a sanctuary quickly turns dangerous and deadly, during the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl. You’ll have access to a variety of new tools, including the new Javelin gun that has an electrifying secondary attack, the updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability. Don’t forget to stop at the Store to change into the advanced suit, equipped with jets that will allow Isaac full 360-degree control in zero-g space! We hope you enjoy it and pick up Dead Space 2 when it’s released on 1/25/2011.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: Super Sports Pack hits PSN today

by Spenser Norrish, Community Coordinator, EA

One of the fastest street legal race cars ever manufactured has joined the pursuit! The GUMPERT Apollo S—as well as the equally awesome Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport—is now available in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit via the Super Sports Pack. This DLC (available for $6.99) also brings 13 new events and 11 new Trophies into the fray.

Mass Effect 2 PS3 demo arrives today on PSN

by Jarrett Lee

Today marks the first time PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to experience the Mass Effect universe. The demo for Mass Effect 2 has arrived, allowing players to experiment with character creation (which will you chose: play as the iconic John Shepard or your own customized Commander Shepard?), play through the opening levels of the game, and even jump to an area further into the game to try out some of the more intense combat areas and see the kinds of amazing locations that can be visited throughout the story.

Mass Effect 2 for the PS3 is the most advanced Unreal Engine game shipped to date, and makes full use of the PS3’s hardware to bring this BioWare-created universe to life in spectacular detail. In fact, it was built on the same engine being used to build the recently announced Mass Effect 3! Here’s your chance to see it for yourself – and don’t forget that after the holiday the full game arrives on PS3 January 18th – including six hours of bonus missions, and an interactive digital comic designed by BioWare and Dark Horse Comics to introduce new players to the franchise. The digital comic allows players to make key choices about their back-story that will be reflected during their game.

And that’s not all!

Starting today, EA is happy to offer you the following add-ons for some of your favorite games at a lower price!

  • Dante’s Inferno – Trials of St. Lucia, $4.99
  • Burnout Paradise add-on content
  • Big Surf Island, $6.99
  • Legendary Cars Collection, $4.99
  • Cops & Robbers, $4.99

I am trying to be nice but this was a pointless post. Include this on the PSN Update post.

Maybe we would be nicer if we had any idea of what it takes to get this update loaded and pushed out.

So… where is MAG?

The fact that there is always problems with this game and that it isn’t even promoted enough is deeply disappointing.

People would love this game!

it is times like these that remind me of the advantage of disc based content . the time to get your game is a simple matter of determining which store opens the earliest … oh well , we’ll all have “NAM ” soon enough and the wait just as quickly forgotten . excited though .

@ #30

I totally agree with you. I have to agree that I have come a long ways to accepting EA into one of my “top developers list.” They have changed around their ways of doing things and are delivering some of the better gaming experiences this generation.

BFBC2: Vietnam $15 = maps, guns, vehicles, etc etc etc.
Black Ops map pack $15 = 4 maps… and 1 zombie map…

Hmm who would you rather support?!
