Dead Space 2 'significantly outselling' original

Analyst says sequel is off to a strong start at retail

Dead Space 2 is "significantly outselling" the original game at US retail, according to channel checks made by Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia.

There's no publicly available sales data yet, but if the game's retail performance can live up to its critical reception, EA will have a monster franchise on its hands.


While October 2008's Dead Space was well received, it was a bit of a slow burner at retail, although it cleared two million sales in August 2010, IndustryGamers reports.
