Description: Today's Sales battle is between two new properties this generation both in the horror genre, that and both containing "Dead" in the title is about the extent of their similarities. Dead Space being in the Surivival Horror genre, and Dead rising is more of an open world action game. Dead Space is a multiplatform title that has only be released for about a year, whereas Dead Rising is only available on the Xbox 360 and released more than 3 years ago. Both games' weekly sales are relatively small at this point, but with Dead Rising having a less than 200,000 lead, it is possible that Dead Space could still take the lead. Which game do you think will come out on top? Vote in the poll then leave a comment letting us know what you think.
What do other people think, a ~170k difference doesn't sound like much but when the game is only selling 5-6k a week it is a pretty big gap. Also, how much do you think potential sequels will impact sales. Dead Rising 2 will definitely be releasing, will that cause a bump for the original game? I don't think Dead Space 2 has been announced (correct me if I'm wrong) and with Dead Space Extraction's low sales so far, it doesn't seem like that will give a boost to Dead Space.
