Visceral's announced that a Dead Space 2 demo will hit the PlayStation Network on December 21st. Unfortunately, we won't be playing it. Why? Because we're too excited for Dead Space 2.

"That makes no sense," we hear you scream. Well it kinda does. We're so excited about Dead Space 2 that we want every single moment to be a surprise. We don't care if the demo gives players “access to a variety of new tools that Isaac can use to fight Necromorphs, including the new Javelin gun, updated stasis recharge mechanic and enhanced telekinesis ability.” We're going to experience this game fresh.

Sure we might spend Christmas sobbing into our dinner. Sure we might spend New Years Eve staring blankly at the PlayStation Store's icon. But it'll be worth it. Dead Space 2 is too exciting to spoil.
