It looks like that blast of Phil Collins has done the trick for Dead Space 3. Chuffed publisher EA Games has announced that the title’s recently released demo has already been downloaded by almost two million people across multiple platforms, which represents a ten per cent increase over Dead Space 2.

Pre-orders for the upcoming co-operative shooter are also outdoing those of its predecessor, but it’s unclear by what margin. The company previously revealed that the sequel needs to break five million sales in order to make its investment worthwhile. We suspect that the executives that set that target have bigger mental health issues than protagonist Isaac Clarke.
