Dead Space Premium Upgrade Packs Incoming

I’ve seen plenty of nickel-and-dime downloadable content before, but this is pretty ridiculous. On November 13th on Xbox Live Marketplace and the European PlayStation Store and then on November 20th for PlayStation Store regions worldwide, EA will release a wide range of downloadable add-ons, officially dubbed “Premium Upgrade Packs,” for Dead Space. Ranging from as little as $1.00 to as high as $4.00, these add-ons mainly include new suit costumes and weapon skins, though some also offer weapon enhancements. A total of 10 add-ons will be available for both platforms, with the PS3 and 360 each getting an additional two exclusive packs containing skins in the colors of their respective console. Seems like a waste of money to me, but hey, if this type of thing interests you go for it. Check after the break for the complete list of add-ons.
