While most of us hope that Dead Space 3 is a return to form for the franchise, that is, a game that is pants-shittingly good, the release date for the game is still a ways off.

Lucky for you handsome bastards, we've discovered a way to get you a chance to play the demo a week before everyone else. It's for the Xbox 360 users in the house and it couldn't be easier. Gather yourself and head right here.

Follow the instructions, and if you clear a routine background check, you'll be emailed a confirmation code that gets you the demo January 15. Let us know if it works for you over on Twitter.
