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
  • Boost Specials Collection, $4.99

@131 SCEA is based in California. They go by PST. so right now it’s 5pm. which 8 out of 10 times is when the PSN gets updated. I just don’t get why people get all riled up about when the PSN store gets updated. it’s not like it’s only up for a few hours then taken away forever. it will be there tomorrow and the next day and the next day and even the day after that. than again goes back to gamers being an impatient and overly self absorbed lot, that expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.

Guys and Gals, don’t make such a big deal out of this one little thing. Besides the Store Updates, PS3 is the bomb.com So come one and lighten up. The workers are most likely working the hardest and fastest they can.

+ taternator2 on December 21st, 2010 at 5:10 pm said:

Its funny how people defend Sony, when they lie about and sorts of crap. 8:00pm and no update! Today has turned in to tonight. Their always a step behind and seem not to care how the consumer feels. Slowly Sony, your losing a fan. P.S. Thanks for messing up GT5. If they say they can’t, they can’t.

+ Rakis on December 21st, 2010 at 5:10 pm said:

I hate the mismanagement of the PSN ‘service’. I hate that Sony has no comprehensible plan for their video-game division. I hate that the best excuse as to why the PSN store does not update at a set time is due to them having to upload all the data to the servers THE AFTERNOON of the update. I hate that Sony’s upper management haven’t fired the employee(s) who thought that uploading data the afternoon that an update occurs would be ‘a good idea’ – or the employees who still perform such consumer unfriendly actions.

That said: I am genuinely impressed with the PSN+ content this month and tonight’s/tomorrow’s update. I eagerly await adding games, demos, and videos to my PS3′s HDD.

I am amazed by incredible amount of ignorance that comes from Sony staff. This guy replied 5 times, to pat on back comments. Instead of answering or letting us know WHEN this update will go up. Incredible.

+ HatmanTc on December 21st, 2010 at 5:14 pm said:

@173 most likely on the PSN store it’s self. if you type it into the search option at the top of the store front, you might be able to find it(haven’t tried that yet). some times, the content is there, it’s just that the store front hasn’t been updated yet

So pumped to finally see this released.
