Dead Space 2 demo:
Hello Dead Space fans! Tomorrow the single player demo for Dead Space 2 is available from PlayStation Store. We can't wait for you guys to play it and wanted to share a couple details of what to expect.
In the Dead Space 2 demo, you will take engineer Isaac Clarke on a terrifying adventure through the Church of Unitology; what appears to be a sanctuary quickly turns dangerous and deadly during the Necromorph outbreak on the Sprawl.
You'll have access to a variety of new tools, including the new Javelin gun that has an electrifying secondary attack, the updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability. Don't forget to stop at the Store to change into the advanced suit, equipped with jets that will allow Isaac full 360 control in zero-g space. We hope you enjoy it and pick up Dead Space 2 when it's released on 28 January.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - Super Sports Pack:
One of the fastest street legal race cars ever manufactured has joined the pursuit. The GUMPERT Apollo S–as well as the equally awesome Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport–is now available in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit via the Super Sports Pack.
This DLC (available for €6.99) introduces three new events and 11 new trophies into the fray.
Mass Effect 2 demo:
Tomorrow will be the first time PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to experience the Mass Effect universe.
The demo for Mass Effect 2 has arrived, allowing players to experiment with character creation (which will you chose: play as the iconic John Shepard or your own customised Commander Shepard?), play through the opening levels of the game, and even jump to an area further into the game to try out some of the more intense combat areas and see the kinds of amazing locations that can be visited throughout the story.
Mass Effect 2 for PlayStation 3 is the most advanced Unreal Engine game shipped to date, and makes full use of the PlayStation 3′s hardware to bring this BioWare-created universe to life in spectacular detail.
In fact, it was built on the same engine being used to build the recently announced Mass Effect 3. Here's your chance to see it for yourself - and don't forget that after the holiday the full game arrives on PS3 January 21st - including six hours of bonus missions and an interactive digital comic designed by BioWare and Dark Horse Comics to introduce new players to the franchise. The digital comic allows players to make key choices about their back-story that will be reflected during their game.
