PS3 Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor come with Extraction, Frontline ports

E3 2010: Sequel to sci-fi horror hit will come with Move-compatible version of Wii spin-off Dead Space Extraction; Shooter's special edition to include "enhanced" edition of 2002 PS2 hit.

LOS ANGELES--At Sony's media briefing today at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the publisher announced that special edition packs of upcoming Electronic Arts titles will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

Isaac Clarke: pointer and killer extraordinaire.

When Medal of Honor launches in October, fans seeking an upper-tier experience can pick up the Medal of Honor Special Edition. Included in the premium pack will be a copy of EA's 2002 shooter Medal of Honor: Frontline, updated with high-definition visuals. Medal of Honor arrives in North America October 12 and in Europe on October 15.

On the strategic-dismemberment side of things, Sony also announced that the limited edition for Dead Space 2 will also be exclusive to the PS3. Necromorph-killing fans who pick up the premium edition will also receive a copy of last year's Wii horror title, Dead Space: Extraction.

A prequel to the events of the original Dead Space and its sequel, Extraction for the PS3 will make use of Sony's recently dated PlayStation Move motion-control technology. Additionally, the once Wii-exclusive will be playable with standard PS3 controllers, includes Trophy support, and will also be sold separately in the PlayStation Store. Dead Space 2 arrives January 25.

Electronic Arts has not announced a price for either the Medal of Honor or Dead Space 2 special editions. Additionally, Dead Space: Extraction has not been priced or dated for the PlayStation Network.

@ iceberg082002 That isn't how exclusives work. \ \ Probably wont make a huge deal.....but still better for Sony than for MS.

@ayanematrix You can play extrraction with the controller so no need to Move.

Extraction is a great game but because it's on the Wii so it didn't sell much. Now it moved to PS3 by PS Move, I don't have to buy Wii to play this game anymore. I just hope that No More Heroes would be ported to PS3 too. But it seems like it won't be, because its 360 and PS3 version didn't sell much in Japan. Damn all of us consumers for not supporting brand-new, original ideas, and heck complain about the games aren't ORIGINAL! :(

Totally Hyped about both of these! Not too sold on the Move...yet. Dead Space is worth playing if you haven't done so yet. Glad I made the jump from Microsoft, to Sony. All because of the R.R.O.D. 3 times!

As much as I'd love to get the limited edition release of Dead Space 2 with Extraction, I'm left wondering if by it having PSMove support will mean it will not work unless I also pick up the $100 starter kit. Honestly, it's not worth the money if that's how it's going to work.

The first Medal of Honor game was realesed near the end of 1999 on the Playstation. It was immidiatly followed up by Medal of Honor: Underground. After that came two games, Frontline on consoles and Allied Assault on the PC. The team that made the PC MoH broke off from EA and fromed Infinity Ward which produced Call of Duty. The next game was Rising Sun, which is were the seires started to go wrong. After Rising Sun the series lost it's subterfuge and one man against the enemy motif and started copying Call of Duty. This was appearent in MoH Pacific Assault, which was a squad-based shooter and completely different from the prebious iterations of the series. It was a good game but not a good MoH game. Then came the average MoH: European Assault and the slightly above average Airborn. Then Call of Duty 4 came out and WWII games weren't cool anymore, which must have been the point EA decided to Murder the fanchise.

COD was first a rip off of Medal of Honor guys. It came first on PSone, then hit PC, then was a PC main stay for about 10 years before the first COD game. Learn a bit of history please.......... Don't be a fanboy.

Hmm, any chance of getting the enhanced MoH: Frontline without the CoD4:MW rip off? I'd like to play a real Medal of Honor game again, not some Modern Warefare shooter with the MoH name slapped on in.

Nice job for Sony getting MOH, and Mafia first Release DLC for PS3! Also thanks for the extra content from Ubisoft, and the cool additons from EA games for DeadSpace2, and Medal of Honor! I can't even choose! Also did anybody notice how these Multiplatform titles looked much better on PS3? Dead Space 2 on PS3 had way more lens flare, and higher detail in the smoke effects. MOH also had more detail in the textures, and bullet effects for the MP side of things. The power of PS3 is getting shown now for the first time. This is the reason I invested in the PS3 slim. I new EA, and other developers would get games doing more on PS3 some day! Today is that day!

About time devs started to use that extra disk space that goes wasted during xbox to ps3 ports. way to go sony, now we are talking. Dead space day one buy for sure. Metal of Honor, I'll wait and see if there is no lag on multiplayer, then maybe. after my experience with Battleground 2, I'll be more cautious when it comes to EA-DICE games.

MoH frontline HD .... sign me up! That was one of my first and still to this day most memorable console FPS games. It really wowed me for a console game.

This is the way Sony! Also great kudos to them for getting Medal of Honor day one content, Assassin's Creed exclusive content, and Mafia 2 Day on Content for PS3........ Great job letting the third party devs show what PS3 can do with third party games! BRAVO! BTW: Was it just me or did Dead Space 2 on the PS3 demo have much more dynamic lighting, more detail in the smoke and dust effects, and much more lens flare? PS3s power is going to shine this year, not just for PS3 exclusives, but also for Multiplatform titles! Also congrats on Portal 2!
