Dead Space 3 adds microtransactions to series, demo out today


Dead Space 3 will scare up extra revenues through its microtransaction system. Eurogamer reports that crafting materials in the game can be picked up by the player, scavenged by bots or purchased through the in-game store. Apparently there are guards in place to prevent players from buying the best gun in the game right from the start.

Dead Space 3 associate producer Yara Khoury confirmed the feature, adding that purchases with real world money aren't required in the game. The in-game currency will be offered in different denominations, but there's currently no official details.

The game's demo is available now on Xbox 360 and later today for PS3, following the PSN udpate.
