Dead Space 3 Demo Coming January 2013 for Xbox Live & PSN

While Dead Space 3 will kick the year off for a great number of blockbuster video games you will be glad to hear that the game will have a demo available in late January for those of you who are still skeptical or unsure of your purchase of the game, if you have been on the fence on buying this game or simply want to see what is in store for you and want a playable demo then it appears that the gaming gods have indeed heard your prayers. Dead Space 3 Demo has been confirmed for January 22nd 2013 for Xbox Live and PSN but Xbox Live users can get it a week early too.

Dead Space 3 Demo will be coming soon to a console near you, it will launch on Xbox 360 on January 15th and PSN on January 22nd.

While Xbox players will have to sign up for early demo access by going Here, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that what have you got to lose by signing up? While Dead Space 3 is easily one of the most anticipated sequels to come in early 2013 fans will at least be glad to hear that the game will have a demo available close to the release date of the game itself so that they can decide whether or not the game truly warrants a purchase or not.

I for one can not wait for a demo but its sad to see that they aren’t going to publish a PC demo which is really disappointing, I’d love to see what Dead Space 3 on a console would look like with the new Ice Planet in full graphics and an HD resolution but alas the will of EA is final.
