Dead Space 2 Out Selling Original 2-to-1

EA has announced that their recently released sequel, Dead Space 2, is out selling the original game nearly 2-to-1.

While the original Dead Space title was very well reviewed, sales for the game really didn't kick into high gear while the game was in its first year of release. However, the original game's reputation as a first class horror/thriller title has helped the sequel get off to a splendid start.

In a Q3 2011 financial report seen here, EA states that the sequel will break all sorts of benchmarks established by the original game.

If you haven't played the original, shame on you...but you can make it up to me and EA by going out and picking up a fantastic game in Dead Space 2.
