Gold - Dead Space

EA Announces That Dead Space Has Gone Gold, saying the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions will ship in North America on October 14, and the PC edition to follow on October 20. They say those who purchase a console edition within two weeks of release will be entitled to download a free suit that adds inventory slots and style to your character. They also mention the 1000 copy "ultra limited edition" for the Xbox 360. Here's the description of the game: "The bold and often bloody Dead Space promises to deliver the ultimate in psychological terror and gruesome cinematic action. Set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere in Dead Space is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of mining engineer Isaac Clarke, an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. Itís not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare filled with vicious genetic mutations inside a dead, claustrophobic silence. Now Isaac is cut off, trapped, and engaged in a desperate fight for survival."

Will be taking a pass on this. Not only do FPS ported from console to PC have a terrible track record but this is EA we are talking about. DRM. Until I hear otherwise I have to assume Securom, Rootkit, limited activations and all the other unpleasantries that have plagued their releases as of late.

**edit - FPS/TPS or basically titles developed in parallel with a console in mind. Not to say they are all rubbish but the ones that turned out the best were released at different dates and given time for PC-centric improvements. Fable PC as an example of the good, DX:IW or Oblivion without mods as the worst case scenario.
