Dead Space 2 Terrorizes PS3 Today, Limited Edition Includes Dead Space: Extraction

Dead Space 2

The Dead Space 2 team and I are super stoked that Dead Space 2 is now finally out and people are getting to play it. We have been anxiously awaiting this day to hear what gamers think of what we have been working on. The PS3 Limited Edition version of Dead Space 2 is crazy — it not only includes Dead Space 2, but it also has Dead Space Extraction. That means you can get your MOVE ON with Dead Space Extraction, and you can play it solo or in co-op as well.

Dead Space 2 for PS3Dead Space 2 for PS3

Making Dead Space 2 has been a blast, getting to see everyone’s speculation on what the game was going to be about, if we lost our minds and cut out the horror, or if we were making some sort of ninja-puzzle-adventure game. Now is the time to see what the final version Dead Space 2 is all about.

From my perspective, the team did a fantastic job. This is the game I’m most proud of being a part of. The game feels better, looks better, has bigger moments, and even includes multiplayer for the first time. I really hope you like it!

Head out now to your local game store and get a copy of the Collector’s Edition — if you can still find it — or the Limited Edition and start dismembering Necromorphs today. If you want to keep up on the game and maybe get your multiplayer on, follow me on Twitter: @leveluptime.

Thanks again and please let us know what you think of the game.

    Hot off the presses from Twitter.com/DeadSpace : “PS3 fans in NA, we’re investigating Online Pass code redemption issues. To play multiplayer, please use your 48-hour trial for now.”

I think I’ll buy it while coming home from work, but I’ll wait for friday night to play it. I need to play more of Mass Effect 2 since LittleBigPlanet 2 took most of my play time and I prefer to play Dead Space 2 all night!

    Limited edition is the first pressing of the game, you can get it at any store right now. Extraction is also in the Collectors Edition as well.

Nice job announcing “DLC” day of release. More content cut from the game that I’m required to pay additionally for in order to play…except I won’t.

Do you know if this is going to be the standard operating procedure for all EA titles going forward? It really helps me in making my decision to not support your future titles that much easier, thanks.

I picked up my Dead Space 2: Collector’s Edition last night at midnight and I love it! I’m absolutely pleased that DS2 doesn’t have a big install. I’ve been getting very tired and frustrated that almost all PS3 games require gigs of installed memory while the 360 rarely if ever needs more then a few megabits for the same games([DELETED])!!!

I’m also very happy with the extra treatment the PS3 version received. It looks like Sony and EA are working to move forward together in the right direction, here’s hoping the continue to do so.

For those that can’t get the online pass to work, wait until the PSN Store has been updated. That is when it works for me on all EA games.

Awesome game and got it preorder but can’t pick it up until next month (Got $61 dollars left to pay). Darn Killzone 3 for being $129.99.

Just bought it, I wanted to try ignition first but I think i cant wait to try dead space 2. Extraction looks very nice too, i wish there would be an online coop tho but its great anyway.

Picked up a limited edition copy today. I never got a chance to play Extraction but now that I have it along with the Move, it’s a blast being able to experience it. I played the first level and is it ever creepy! Love it and hopefully Dead Space 2 delivers in the scares department. I feel like it’s a genre that is severely lacking this generation.

Release a patch with Move controls enabled. Extraction is nice, but I sure hoping part 3 will have Move controls integrated.

EA guys recently released Mass Effect 2 for direct download on PSN, when taking into account the additional progress EA is making with steam and digital distribution on the PC platform, why is Dead Space 2 on the PlayStation store?

…indeed, why aren’t ALL major recent EA titles available, such as Dante’s Inferno or the original Dead Space for example?

I have a question?

Does every Dead Space version come with Extraction? I heard some places it comes only in the Collector’s Edition (which comes with the limited edition).

Some others say that the only version is the Limited Version (which comes alone or with the collector´s edition)

And others say that there´s the regular verison with Extraction Demo, and the Limited Edition and the Collector’s Edition including Extraction full game

So which is it? Could you please clarify? THANKS!

+ HerbertFortoon on January 25th, 2011 at 12:04 pm said:

My online pass code worked, but this is not a feature. It makes me chuckle to think of anyone calling it that. It is the removal of a feature so that it can be ransomed off to used game purchasers. Some games need to steer clear of multiplayer anyways. Dead Space is an awesome singleplayer game, and should be left that way. I have little intention of playing online with all the major jerks who lurk on multiplayer servers.

Is the collector’s edition supposed include a code for that armor for Dragon Age 2?

Cause my copy sure didn’t.

+ KazeEternal on January 25th, 2011 at 12:22 pm said:

Can’t wait to get home and play it. Just hope it is everything that Greg Miller (destroyer of LAIR) has hyped it up to be. Little concerned that the multiplayer is “flat” so we’ll see when I get to it. Thankfully I’m buying the game for the single player mode and not Multiplayer. Hard part is going to be pulling me away from my second play through (first on PS3) of Mass Effect 2. I told myself I’d finish my other games first… that didn’t work out to well lol.

I simply can’t afford this game right now. Just signed a new lease to an apartment, so that’s absorbing all my funds for now.

If I pick this game up in a couple months when I have more disposable income… will I still be able to get the PS Move game Extraction?

Or, is it limited time?
