Dead Space 2 sales almost at 2m units

During EA’s investor call yesterday John Schappert, EA’s COO, stated that “Dead Space 2 is approaching two million units sold”, which means it has effectively doubled the LTD sales of the original title. Even more impressive is that it accomplished this feat in its first week on sale.

Considering EA’s disappointment in the original Dead Space’s sales this is certainly good news for the future of the franchise.

Dead Space 2 in stores now, new DLC pack announced

EA’s Dead Space 2 is now available at retails stores in North America, sorry Europe you will have to wait until January 28th (and even longer if you live in Germany).

The title has been pulling in some very good review scores, but remember the best (and by best I mean dumbest) reason to get it is because your mom hates Dead Space 2.

Additionally, Visceral Games announced a new DLC pack for the single-player game titled Dead Space 2: Severed. The pack will launch “soon” on Xbox Live and PSN, and follows Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock from Dead Space Extraction.

Full press release after the break.

Dead Space 2 delayed in Germany until Feb 3rd

Dead Space 2 has been delayed in Germany in order to remove the “friendly fire” multiplayer option, which is apparently a sore spot with the German government because it involves people getting shot and not just mutants or aliens. The game will now launch on February 3rd in the country.

The German government has gone out of their way to ban anything Nazi related in the country after WW2, and has fully embraced censorship to protect Germans from media violence. Ironically, government censorship was an integral tool in maintaining Nazi control.
