    With Dead Space 3 hitting shop shelves this past Friday, I was wondering how many of you invest in the franchises which utilise cross-media.

    "Dead Space" is covered in multiple games, across multiple platforms, with a story that is further expanded upon through animated films, novels and comics.

    The same can be said of Halo, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, to name a few. Some complain that they shouldn't have to heavily invest in order to get the whole story. Some argue that the core games themselves should be able to cover everything.

    I'm not so sure. I think the worlds/universes these developers are now capable of making are often big enough and interesting enough to warrant vast exploration.

    Is it something you embrace?
