The Wii's Dead Space: Extraction was an excellent but sadly overlooked sci-fi shooter that deserved a bigger audience and a better home. How pleasing, then, that it's on the way to PlayStation 3 owners via the special edition of Dead Space 2.

Playable with Move – although also compatible with Dualshock 3 – the game will be given a high definition lick of paint and Trophies, with the Wii original's drop-in, drop-out co-operative gameplay still intact too. Dead Space: Extraction is exclusive to the PS3 version of Dead Space 2, making a nice little bonus over Xbox 360 owners.

The limited edition Dead Space 2, with Dead Space: Extraction onboard, launches in January 2011.
