Why It Matters
The importance of Dead Space’s inclusion of more supported languages is twofold. First, from a business standpoint, for EA and Motive Studios incorporating a variety of languages improves Dead Space’s profitability by opening the game to more markets for it to compete in. Secondly, for consumers, when more languages are supported, a greater number of players will be able to enjoy titles like Dead Space, when they can be experienced in international gamers’ preferred languages.
