Dead Space 2 Confirmed for PC Version

Earlier this year when Dead Space 2 was announced, the platform missing from the list that the first game graced was the PC. At the time, EA said that a PC SKU wasn't in the plan.

Then PC gamers spoke out, and EA then changed its tune saying that a PC version was under consideration.

Thankfully, the considering is over and EA confirmed the PC version for release and the official Dead Space Twitter tweeted: "Dead Space PC lovers can relax! Dead Space 2 is officially coming to PC."

    I hope it will be in FPS mode then. Playing third person view with mouse/keyboard is so weird. I haven't enjoyed a game with third person view since maybe the first Max Payne. Resident Evil 5 and Gears of War had such weird movement. Just Cause 2 is the same although I guess it would be a lot harder in FPS mode.

    The best would be like Arma II where you get the option of both.

    EA's actually done OK since the Spore thing went down. Its not like they are using Activision or Ubisofts insane DRM schemes...

    Acti-who? Activision is now only kept on life support by WoW revenues that Vivendi funnels them. All their talent abandoned ship, guitar hero has gotten stale, and their user base is rather unloyal.

    This is going to be the year of ZeniMax. They are releasing simply better products on a different level then shovel ware EA and Activision can pull out. Brink, RAGE, and Fallout New Vegas. I think we all know whats going to sell.

    Even though the first one was designed for PC, if a console game isn't designed for PC it usually sucks when compared to actual PC games. The scrutiny on PC games is alot higher then with consoles and the difference shows in quality and creativity.

    Moving forward we should see more developers opting for the PC first because of the aging consoles that are now pushing 5 years and hardware limitations of yesteryear.

    EA already confirmed quite a while ago that they're committed to relaxing DRM.

    this game is not fun, it's scary like hell, it uses cheap methods to form the scare factor in the game... however i can't just ignore a weapon that shoots a laser cutting anything in its way... that's FUN!!!!1

    The first game was so messed up. This one looks even crazier. I guess we'll see.
