What better way to celebrate Valentines than with a Dead Space 3 in-game item giveaway!

roses are red[8][1][4][1][1][1]While some may see Valentine’s Day as a time to go out and have dinner with a friend or loved one, or perhaps even go to a singles party celebrating being on the other side of the Valentine’s Day fence, we have an alternative suggestion for you care of EA and Visceral Games.

The team behind Dead Space 3 has codes to help you make stomping the heads of Necromorphs all the more rewarding, and not only that, we have two codes to give each winner so you can keep one for yourself and pass the other on to a co-op partner. For your chance to win, all you have to do is post a comment below telling us what games coming out this year that you are most interested in (or even unannounced games possibly coming in the future). Let us know what games you are interested in, and we’ll do our best to make sure we keep you up to date in the coming weeks and months on any news regarding the game or franchise.

N-day card[6][1][4][1][1][1]Here’s how the codes break down: we will choose two winners for Dead Space 3 on EA’s Origin service, two for the PS3, and one for the Xbox 360. When you post a comment, you must specify your system of preference. The contest is open to U.S. residents only.

Here’s what you can win:

Origin and PS3 players:

-One winner will receive two codes for the “Tau Volantis Survival Kit” (containing the Marauder, Sharpshooter, and Tundra suit packs, as well as the Bolt Accelerator.)

-One winner will receive two codes that includes a “Miscellaneous pack” (including the Maurauder, Sharpshooter, and Tundra suit packs, the Bolt accelerator, Bot capacity, and Bot personality.

Xbox 360 players:

-One winner will receive two codes for the “Miscellaneous pack” listed above

In total there will be five winners, two for PC, two for PS3, and one for Xbox 360. We will select the winners tomorrow (Friday, February 15) at noon PST.

Good luck, and happy stomping!
