126w 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.

Playing Dead Space: Extraction on PlayStation Move makes for a fine demonstration of the motion controller's precision and versatility.
Aiming is quick and accurate with virtually no discernible lag: small, subtle movements of your wrists translate precisely on-screen, giving you the feeling of aiming with a computer mouse.
One nice touch: twisting your wrist 90 degrees to the left or right will flip your Plasma Cutter's firing plane from horizontal to vertical, which can help you find the ideal angle for snipping off arms, legs, tentacles, and other protrusions of the vile Necromorphs. There are other weapons, of course, including a Rivet Gun and a Force Gun, and the "wrist twist" will activate their alternate fire modes as well.
Using the PlayStation Move, you fire your current weapon with the T button (aka the trigger). Pressing the Move button activates a quick Telekinesis blast, which you can use to pick up ammo and items hidden throughout the environments -- or use to hurl objects at the marauding Necromorphs.
It's your choice! Melee attacks are gesture based: you press and hold Circle, then rapidly...
