144w 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.

To quote: Due to issues beyond our control, a nasty, disgusting and horrific zombie outbreak has occurred and we need you to help prove your nation is the best in world at fighting the zombie infection.
Dead Nation has a unique online component which we call the metagame. It means that every time you kill a zombie, we know about it and so does the game. The metagame uses that information to track many things. So, every single zombie kill counts!
Every single dirt-ridden, disgusting sack of flesh you kill will count towards clearing the virus in your country. The more zombies you and your countrymen kill, the quicker the virus will be cleared.
Below is a snapshot of part of the Metagame:
• Currently selected country.
• Player's statistics.
• Statistics about the currently selected country.
• Ticker texts which displays various information about the global status, player's country status, player's friends and about the player.
• Access to more in-depth detailed statistics.
The metagame features an interactive map of the world, which can be used to access all the information. For...
