PS3-Exclusive Version of Dead Space Will Include Extraction

This is what you get for believing.

Rumors of a HD Dead Space: Extraction port have been swirling since the dinosaurs choked on cosmic dust, but now some can be put to rest. A PS3 version of Dead Space: Extraction with PS Move support will be shipped alongside a PS3-exclusive limited edition bundle of Dead Space 2.

The Visceral Games crew and Sony didn't have much to divulge about the title other than the fact that it would be included on the Dead Space 2 game disc, lending some credence to rumors that pegged Dead Space: Extraction as a downloadable-sized title. Questions as to if the game will ever make its way to PSN or even Xbox Live Marketplace weren't addressed during the briefing.

When publishers start throwing around words like "exclusive," it's best to take said exclusivity with a grain of salt. The Dead Space: Extraction downloadable port rumors were particularly persistent and have earned some cred with this announcement. There seems like there's still a chance we could see Extraction in other places.

SWEET

That game is so much better than anyone thinks it is.  
...but dammit, now I have a(nother) reason to buy Move. 

Edited by Jellybones

Oh boy. Here I was hoping I'd get to play it without waving my arms about like a goober.

Niiiice.

Never played Extraction, but heard good things. Looking forward to it.

cool

Edited by Hockeymask27

Well I guess Microsoft has Activision and Sony has EA now.

If I add PS3-exclusive content, will Sony pay me?

Posted by gunslingerNZ

That's a pretty sweet bonus. Don't think I'll ever get to use it though unless someone gives me a free move wand.

Posted by KinjiroSSD

Cool. Dead Space 2 is already day one for me regardless. I've been wanting to play Extraction and this sweetens the deal. But I guess I'll have to buy a Move. Damn you Sony!!

Posted by cap123

pretty cool for PS3 owners

Posted by Vorbis

It sounded like only the "DS2+Extraction combo" was an exclusive. There's no chance they would make Extraction exclusive, this is EA after all.
 
But having said that, that's an awesome deal and i'll grab it for sure.

 " it would be included on the Dead Space 2 game disc, lending some credence to rumors that pegged Dead Space: Extraction as a downloadable-sized title"
 
Dont forget that the PS3 is blu-ray.  Extraction HD could be a whopping 30 gigs!  It wont, but it could be.
 
My guess its a PS3 exclusive now only because of the blu-ray's extra breathing room.  Makes me think more that at a later date that It will come out as a DL game.

Posted by fallen_elite

Would have been great if they added Move support to DS2 too.

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

Extraction won't require Move, will it?  I know it supports the tech, but I'm not sure I'll be investing into it quite yet.  This seems like a pretty good bonus, though.

Yeah, it's a great game -- and available on the cheap now if you don't want to wait for Move.

Posted by This_Dude

Well i guess i know which platform i'll purchase Dead Space 2 on .

Posted by Microshock

I doubt that it'll come out on the 360 since it's an on rail shooter that works best with the Wii and Move.. 
 
Did the Dante's Inferno exclusive stuff for PS3 come to xbox?

I don't know if I'd say that. All the Kinect stuff so far has been on rails after all, I think it would work just fine on Kinect.

Too bad it didn't shake out the opposite way.  I wasn't planning on buying Activision games anymore so early DLC doesn't mean anything to me.

Eh, stuff like this requires precision and I don't think Kinect can pull stuff like that off

That's a neat little surprise. Nice little bonus.

 By any chance you mean Kinect? 
  
 If so then let me ask you an hypothetical question. How do you shoot?  ( Silly solutions are valid, but will remain silly)

Great, now I really have to get Move now

I'll admit it crossed my mind to get a Move for this.

I said them today, but though it yesterday with all the zooming in on ps3 controllers during the EA conference.
Posted by Zero_

Did they say anywhere that the game will work with a standard controller?

And whenever they showed box art - Dead Space for example - it was a PS3 Blu-ray box. I knew something was up. 3rd parties always use 360-related stuff in their demos.
 
Interesting... could this be why Gabe Newell had to practically apologize to Sony? Valve is an EA partner.

This is a cool game on Wii, nice bonus for DS2.
 
It also has one of the most gruesomely awesome uses of motion control ever, which I won't spoil for any future Move buyers.

I think Brad spoiled that on one of the podcasts. I could be wrong though, so I'm going to shut up now.

Have you heard the things Gabe's said about the PS3 in the past? Oh god.

You're right, he totally did talk about the, uh, super visceral, grotesque thing you do at one point in Dead Space Extraction, and compared it with the end scene of MW2.

Word. Not just casual critique, he fuckin' verbally curb-stomped the PS3. But what a turnaround! I guess Gabe ate his words when he realized how strict Microsoft is. He wanted to put out the TF2 DLC for free but Microsoft wouldn't have it. 
 
I guess Sony gives him more freedom in that respect. He said they were more "open." Hopefully this means free Portal 2 DLC for PS3!

Guess I know which console I am getting this for! Just like the first game, actually.

Posted by Jet_Speedway

Fuck yeah. 
 
Finally that stupid 360 doesn't get something exclusive for a change.
 
360 owners are a bunch of pussies.

Yeah, kinda sad now that I'm actually going to end up playing it.
Posted by WillyLo
@Kajaah117:  I was thinking this BUT, EA would be stupid to try and pressure Valve into doing anything. They're like Blizzard to Activision, at this point they can more then likely sustain themselves without anyone else. EA just makes it a bit cheaper.

I read somewhere (can anyone confirm) that this had support for the regular controller as well? If so, I'd expect to see this on XBLA. Also this Kotaku report on the rumor shows a resume someone wrote which mentions working on the port. It refers to the port as (PSN/XBLA). Details here:
 http://kotaku.com/5554809/dead-space-extraction-hd-guiding-its-way-to-ps3-xbox-360 
 
What do you guys think of the chances that I can download this on 360 and play it with a standard controller? I have it on Wii but playing with HD visuals would be worth giving up the motion control.

Edited by Brodehouse

Super excited.  I played the first three levels of Extraction one day and was super impressed, but trophy/achievement guilt kept me from coming back.  Not any longer.
 
It's too bad Nintendo is such a staunchly Japanese company, because having some sort of Wiichievements would get me playing more than Silent Hill and old Resident Evils.
 
For the record, I'd probably have an S-Rank in Silent Hill Shattered Memories.

Posted by DrakeAsh

Seems like a perfect fit for the Move.
Posted by Krakn3Dfx

This seems pretty cool.  I'm actually pretty stoked to check out Move.  Can't get that excited about Kinect, maybe once it's out I'll feel different.

Posted by SME

I am a heretic  for still not having played the first one.

Posted by Jhriad

Really cool idea. 

Posted by Lost_In_Gaming

So, will this be a trilogy pack or just Dead Space 2 and Dead Space: Extraction? Extraction was a prequel to the first game, right? Seems weird to package two games together that are missing the middle of the chronological story.

Posted by AllanIceman

I will get this.

Doesn't EA publish Mass Effect?
