EA has announced that a free downloadable demo for its survival horror action game, Dead Space, will be available today on both Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

In the demo players will get to sample the game's unique combat which sees hero Isaac Clarke taking down the Necromorphs by removing their limbs using a variety of mining tools - a simple bullet to the head won't cut it.

The demo's well worth a look, although European PS3 gamers will need to wait until November 27 when the Euro PlayStation Store updates.
