Dead Space demo due out this week

Haven’t quite decided whether or not Electronic Arts’ Dead Space is for you? Well, fortunately you’re in luck – the publisher announced today that it will be depositing a free demo of the survival horror outing on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade this week.

Those of you residing in North America will be able to download the demo for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 tomorrow, while PAL gamers will have to wait until Thursday.

Dead Space combines sumptuous visuals with an innovative (and decidedly gory) dismemberment system, allowing players to dispatch the game’s collection of various nasties – known as Necromorphs – literally limb by limb as you explore the deserted halls of a lost space vessel.
