151w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a recap of a Dead Space 2 PS3 interview from E3 2010 today.
To quote: At the conclusion of Dead Space, space miner Isaac Clarke was, shall we say, a little unwell. Though Clarke's body survived his first encounter with the Necromorph, the same can't be said for his mind.
We caught up with the creative director of Dead Space 2, Visceral Games' Wright Bagwell, to learn more about the game's gargantuan new setting, new enemies including the Tripod and the Pack, and new combat abilities including the Javelin gun. Watch our interview below to learn more.
Notably, Dead Space 2 will feature a bigger, deeper universe than the first game. No longer stranded on a dinky deep-space mining station, Clarke now prowls a labyrinthine interstellar complex called "The Sprawl," comprised of hospitals, schools, churches, and unspeakable things that go bump in the night.
Visceral Games has confirmed that the Church of Unitology, the cult-like Necromorph worshippers introduced at the conclusion of Dead Space, will play a far more direct role in this sequel. Naturally, Visceral Games is keeping its lips tightly sealed on the specifics...
158w ago - SCEE Community Lead Alex Weekes has posted the European PlayStation Home update, which includes additions from LocoRoco, Bioshock and Dead Space among others.

159w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has revealed the US PS Home additions today, which include an Uncharted 2 Space, MW2 Play Session and Red Dead Redemptions Items among the updates.
To quote: The Uncharted 2 adventure continues this week, as the celebrated franchise expands further into the wide world of PlayStation Home with the release of the new Uncharted 2 personal space.
Situated in the heart of Pokhara, this dazzling personal space harkens back to the action-packed scenes of Naughty Dog's award-winning title, where Nathan Drake and Co. battle it out with Lazarevic's henchmen in the war-torn streets of Nepal.
A true must-have addition to your UNCHARTED collection, this personal space will be available this Thursday, May 6th in the Estates store in the PlayStation Home Mall.

160w ago - Dead Space 2 Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis has unveiled the first PS3 trailer video for survival horror third-person shooter Dead Space 2 that is slated to arrive on Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system in Q1, 2011.
To quote: The team is hard at work on Dead Space 2, but today we are releasing our first official trailer! We are very interested in hearing what people think about the trailer as we are certain fans of Dead Space will have lots of questions.
The concept behind the trailer is to hint at one of the core elements in Dead Space 2, while also showing off new enemies, a peek at an environment, and some other sneaky things.
Hopefully, fans of the original dig into the hidden stuff and new folks can get a glimpse at what the Dead Space franchise is all about: gruesome enemies and horror.
The team and I really enjoy all of the support we have been getting from the Dead Space community, and we are doing our best to create a worthy sequel.
If you want to keep up to date on what we are doing, please join our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter. Looking forward to your feedback on the trailer.
