Dead Space 3
In Stores This Week Around the World

After a protracted Christmas break, 'Out in Stores' is back this week to bring you all the hot releases hitting retail over the next seven days.

This week's releases are dominated by one game: Dead Space 3. The action title has already earned some raised eyebrows over its inclusion of co-op, its continued move away from horror and its inclusion of microtransactions, but what does it actually play like? Our review will be hitting tomorrow.

Elsewhere there's... not a lot. Asia gets Vampire Resurrection while Europe gets Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2. Looks like it's all on Visceral's divisive shooter then.

Full list below.

Asia (via

  • Vampire Resurection

Australia (via

  • Dead Space 3

Europe (via

  • Dead Space 3
  • Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2

North America (via

  • Dead Space 3

Crysis 3 is the week after. Looking forward to that more, seeing as how it isn't an EA Microtransaction Cash Cow.

Got Dead Space 3 on order and it was apparently despatched Friday afternoon! Hopefully it means I get the game a few days early rather than having to wait until the 8th :)

@8: The publishers keep these online passes and microtransactions pretty close to their chest so don't be surprised if EA drop that bomb closer to release!

Looking forward to both Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3 regardless.

You lucky asshole, my Fire Emblem won't be here until Friday. No Dead Space for me, next game is Crysis.

@12 I'm trying to think of another company who's done microtransactions on a console... Maybe Square Enix for that Final Fantasy minigame/Wiiware for the Wii? My life as a king or something...
