44w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has answered some popular fan questions on the upcoming Dead Space 3 video game for the PS3 console.
Below is the FAQ, as follows: A couple weeks ago, we asked you for Dead Space 3 questions, which we'd forward along to Visceral Games for a future Q&A.
Starting at 12:01AM Pacific time tonight, you'll be able to download the game on PSN in North America, and it will be available at retail tomorrow, so we think now's a good time to revisit that.
You mobilized and responded to our request in full force, so we had plenty to ask about when we tracked down John Calhoun, Associate Producer of Dead Space 3. When we finally caught up with him, we threatened dismemberment politely asked him a few of the questions you had, and he was happy to oblige.
Read on to find out how Visceral kept co-op scary, what Isaac's new locomotive abilities mean for the game, and what kinds of new horrors you'll face when Dead Space 3 launches tomorrow.
56w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a Dead Space 3 interview with fans today announcing that the Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer game is getting a make-over.
Below are the details, to quote: Next February sees the release of the third main entry in EA's critically lauded sci-fi survival horror series, Dead Space.
While the first two games followed very similar templates, the latest installment really mixes things up by introducing full co-op play to the main campaign.
The optional drop-in, drop-out multiplayer lets a second player join in the story as new character Sergeant John Carver. While the game is fully playable as a solo experience, if you play with friend you'll have an expanded story and get to experience a number of extra sequences and set-pieces.
We sat down with the game's producer Steve Papoutsis to find out how - and why - developer Visceral Games has implemented this new system and what fans of the series can expect from reluctant hero Isaac Clarke's latest adventure.

145w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video trailer today for Dead Space 2 PS3 Severed DLC and confirmed it hits PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Dead Space 2 gets an afterlife tomorrow with the PSN release of Dead Space 2: Severed. This downloadable expansion picks up where PlayStation Move-enabled shooter Dead Space: Extraction left off, with (spoiler!) the escape of security officer Gabe Weller and surveyor Lexine Murdoch from the doomed colony of Aegis VII.
Fate ultimately brings the pair to another very bad place: the Sprawl, otherwise known as the source of Dead Space 2's Necromorph outbreak. While Issac Clarke is busy tracking down the Marker and battling his inner demons, Gabe is pursuing a more personal objective - locating Lexine, who's been abandoned somewhere in the dark recesses of the station.
Played through Gabe's eyes, Severed brings a different perspective to the events of Dead Space 2 and fleshes out the backstory of both characters, complete with a few twists and turns for good measure.
I went hands-on with the first chapter of Severed in a guided tour narrated by Dead Space 2 Producer Scott Probst and Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis. Decked out in high-tech...
150w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared a video today spotlighting Dead Space: Extraction on PS3 with PlayStation Move.
To quote: Hiding in the deepest corner of the galaxy – and in the vast recesses of your Dead Space 2: Limited Edition Blu-ray next Tuesday – you can find Dead Space 2's maniacal cousin Dead Space: Extraction.
Decked out in luscious HD graphics, this PS3-exclusive edition of Dead Space: Extraction harnesses the precision of PlayStation Move to make lopping off Necromorph limbs easier than ever. In our new video, Dead Space producer Zach Mumbach explains why PlayStation Move is the ultimate weapon in Extraction.
Extraction takes place before we meet Issac Clarke aboard the Ishimura in Dead Space, and chronicles the discovery of the mysterious Marker, an arcane artifact that holds the key to the Necromorph infestation in the first game.
Once the Necromorphs squirm onto the scene in Extraction, your investigation on Aegis VII is cut short and the fight for survival begins.
Dead Space: Extraction comes packed on a single Blu-ray with Dead Space 2: Limited Edition on January 25th.
165w ago - Producer Rich Briggs has announced today that Dead Space Ignition hits PSN tomorrow, and confirmed it's free for those who pre-order Dead Space 2.
To quote: Dead Space Ignition will be available for download starting tomorrow, and it will be completely free for anyone who pre-orders Dead Space 2.
This makes the launch even more exciting for us, and I'm happy to have the chance to tell you more about it.
When we created Dead Space we wanted to establish a living, breathing, and terrifying universe. As we built this universe, we used the comic series and animated feature to expand the core story from the game. We're taking this to the next level with Dead Space Ignition.
We're excited about Dead Space Ignition because it brings the franchise to downloadable arcade games for the very first time, with a completely new experience. By combining interactive comic storytelling with three unique arcade games, we can tell a new Dead Space story in a fast-paced, accessible manner.
Before Isaac Clarke begins his adventure on The Sprawl in Dead Space 2, a Necromorph outbreak occurs, and Dead Space Ignition lets you witness the horror first-hand. And you'll be able to choose your own adventure along the way, as Ignition offers four unique endings.
