It's just come exclusively to Android via Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, but a version of EA's thrilling shooter Dead Space (a Pocket Gamer Silver awardee) has also sneaked out for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

Weighing in at 402 MB compared to 427 MB for the iPad version, games appear to be the same (minus the iOS update content), with you taking on the Necromorph horde with your Plasma Saw, historically as set inbetween the action of the original console game and its sequel.

As with the iOS and Android games, development has been carried out by EA's Australian team at IronMonkey Studios.

Playing the PlayBook

To-date, EA has been the only mobile publisher supporting the PlayBook, which comes with Tetris and Need for Speed Undercover pre-loaded.

That will change however as the first of 30 Unity-developed games come to the tablet courtesy of the ongoing deal between RIM and the middleware company's Union program.

At GDC Europe, Unity's Brian Bruning revealed the first five Union games - including Angry Mob Studios' Guerilla Bob - would be out for the PlayBook during the next couple of weeks.

Dead Space for BlackBerry PlayBook is out now and costs $9.99 or £9.99.
