The lights are on
In addition to showing off a gruesome boss battle from Dead Space 2 at their press conference, Sony revealed gamers playing EA's latest horror action game on PlayStation 3 will receive a nice bonus pack-in.
Dead Space: Extraction, originally released for Wii last year, will be ported to PS3 and packed in with Dead Space 2 on that platform. The port will use Sony's new Move controller to emulate the shooter action provided by the Wii remote in the original version.
The PS3 version of Extraction will include a co-op mode and a full collection of Trophies to unlock. For those not purchasing Dead Space 2 on PS3, Extraction will also be available as a stand-alone PlayStation Network download.
When Extraction was released last year, it received solid critical buzz but distressingly dismal sales. It's cool that EA has come up with a unique way to recycle the game's content. This is a great bonus for PS3 owners already planning to buy Dead Space 2 and may push some multi-platform users to pick up the PS3 version.
cool the move looks good watch out wii
Great! I like this.
Sony pulled all the right strings this year. I'm so glad I can actually play Extraction now. No more crying over a broken Wii.
im going to go hug my ps3. Wait you need move? No! It was funny because when sony announced the price for the move was 49.99, then they announced the controller for the move with the analog stick on it for 29.99 and everyone went quiet. lol 80$ Nice try sony but i know how to count! .......trying to trick me by breaking up the price
Was looing to get Dead Space 2 for the 360 but now I am leaning towards the PS3 for the bonus content. Sony did a great job this E3.
Ugh, and I was so adamant about not getting the move, and then they have to pull this on me.
the move is looking cooler and cooler. i think this was a great move more Sony
sony took e3 home this year and got it in bed. sony sftw
These are the winners this year i think for press conferences
YAY! Good news!
This is kind of pushing me toward the PS3 for my Dead Space 2 needs.
its just too bad Extraction is a rail shooter
A full-size Wii game being released for so little barely a year later?
Good Move (no pun intended)I might have to pick up Dead Space 2 now
sony has pulled out all the stops so far, except for securing an exclusive ff xiii: versus.
I like Sony not trying out microsoft microsoft. EA and Sony are def getting my dollars this year
Motion Controls + Rail Shooter = FAIL
I loathe rail shooters in all their form. Take away all semblances of exploration and tactics and you are left with this. I guess some people enjoy arcade style action, but not I.
*nod* Good to see it move... HA!
