Why Dead Rising 3 Moved From Xbox 360 To Xbox One

Dead Rising 3 has been in development for quite some time. Siliconera first had news about the game eighteen months earlier and at that time our sources said Dead Rising 3 would be for current generation consoles. Capcom Vancouver changed directions after they pushed the Xbox 360 hardware beyond its limits. (Dead Rising 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Its missing the charm of the first game.
JokesOnYou  +   652d ago
So you're a time traveler and you've already played it? Would you care to elaborate on what "charm" was in the others that's missing from DR3?..or is it just because it LOOKS darker and grittier?, which I actually like.

“DR3 still has silly stuff. We have months and months to dig into this,” Elston told his Twitter followers."

"For the Microsoft conference, Capcom wanted to show a new kind of Dead Rising leading on from the success of grittier zombie experiences like The Walking Dead, rather than get their existing fanbase enthralled as they are already on the hook. There was still the crazy item combination, lots of zombie genocide and a chatty protagonist which are all hallmarks of the franchise"

Yeah man, the franchise is expanding without losing its core. He just jealous
sonarus  +   652d ago
To be perfectly frank. This and ryse i felt were the weakest games in MS line up. Titanfall looks great as well as forza 5 however, Dead rising 3 looks MEH. Doesn't look that great and the previous dead rising games weren't that great to me either.

That being said since the world is far more open now the game could end up great from a core gameplay standpoint. Being able to get in cars and drive around could change a lot of things to making the game better.

Ryse on the other hand looks good but in a Lair on ps3 sort of way. Plus looks boring and the fighting looks lame. I haven't played it either so can't say anything definitive but these aren't games i would look twice at on a regular day.
Colzer01  +   652d ago
^^Previous dead rising is a 'fine' game, and that's why, if they still using the same thing over and over again, they won't be a game that people really looks forward to. That's why they change it into a true open-world and more darker tone this time.
4Sh0w  +   652d ago
Also if they did the same game with just prettier graphics, then everybody would scream its nothing new they aren't progressing the game, instead of its lost the "charm" it had before. I like how it looks now and judging by the gameplay vids it still has the core gameplay I love about DR.
sonarus  +   652d ago
"Fine" game? The first one on the X360 was great primarily because it was the first zombie game of last gen. It allowed a semi open world and so was fun. The second one not so much but it was ALRIGHT due to coop. All the DR games in actuality have been OK at best with the exception of the first one.

This new dead rising COULD be great but i won't hold my breath for that. I could be wrong though but based on what i have seen there is really nothing to get excited about. Titanfall and Forza 5 are the xbox one exclusives to look forward to. As an exclusive title that is supposed to showcase the new abilities of the new system Dead rising doesn't do a good job at all. Makes perfect sense that the game was designed for 360 cus it really looks like a current gen game with more zombies on screen
AngelicIceDiamond  +   652d ago
I've never been a huge Deadrising fan but I'll probably check this one out. I wanna see more on the Co-op and new elements.

I bet that's gonna be really fun.
Septic  +   652d ago
Who cares? I'm liking the serious nature of it far more than the OTT nature of its predecessors.
Hellsvacancy  +   652d ago
I didnt like the first two DR games, thought they were stupid

I think the new looks pretty cool though, i'm liking the change
Lovable  +   652d ago

Definitely. This looks so much better than the first two combine.
JokesOnYou  +   652d ago
@Hellsvacancy, well I did like how crazy over the top the first 2 played but I can completely see why some would find it silly also but I definitely agree that this new look is really cool, basicly it at least looks like a more mature game.

-Damm for some reason this makes me think of how I want the new Crackdown to look, but please, please make it insanely wild like the original....my bad I digress.

Totally agree Septic. The more serious tone I'll make me more emotionally invested in the characters.
dedicatedtogamers  +   652d ago
Whether it's charming or not, this isn't a difficult decision to understand. 3rd party exclusives are rare, so instead of putting it on 360 (I mean, WHO supports their console after 7+ years? Amirite?!?) they pushed it onto Xbox One to pad out the launch-window library. The same thing happened to Ryse (which was announced as a 360 Kinect "hardcore" game). The same thing happened to Gravity Rush (which was a PS3 game that shifted development to the Vita). The same thing happened to FF v13 (a.k.a FF 15). The same thing will probably happen to The Last Guardian.

Wow he didn't say a thing about PS4, he just expressed a opinion different than yours. Because of that he has to be a fanboy right?
Tetsujin  +   651d ago
A lot of people are rumoring DR3 is going to PS4 after about a year with added content; not that it makes a difference in my opinion about the series as a whole but I wanted to throw that in.


I'm burned out of the whole zombie-style games, I want something different, and new.
RAF-TECH  +   652d ago
which launch title should i get... hard to decide
Forza 5 or Dead Rising 3...

I wonder if this model of paying 3rd party's for exclusivity is cheaper/better than buying studios to make them for you.

MizTv  +   652d ago
Very good question
But the problem is you don't own the ip
JokesOnYou  +   652d ago
Well it depends, everything depends on the contract usually funding and publishing the game secures the rights to at least keeping the game itself, NOT the IP exclusive, in the case of Bioware/Mass Effect that had legal loopholes due to EA buing out the studio, possibly micro selling its interest back for publishing the first game.
DiRtY  +   652d ago
A lot of games for a new gen started their development on the previous gen.

We saw it in the early days of this gen (Kameo, CoD², Perfect Dark Zero) and we will see it next gen (Dead Rising, Titanfall, Assassin's Creed) Heck some of those will even be released on PS3 / 360.

"Our tech teams have been like [makes mushing noise]. They get our builds all the time and helping us optimize it and helping us with performance stuff. They visit us every week. We go down there every other week. We’ve been essentially merged together," Jones replied. "They have done custom work with multi-threading for us. All of the Kinect things, we’re making a game for hardware that isn’t finished that we’re all trying to launch together on day one. Basically, we’ve been in lock step with them."

Sounds really cool, MS seem to help out 3rd parties to the max when it comes to making an exclusive for their system.
Contrarily to what the not too bright people here think, 3rd party exclusives can be secured by either funding development like for Quantun Break and Alan Wake or actually kind of co-developing the game like in this case.
tigertron  +   652d ago
Ignoring the haters, I actually think this looks awesome. I'm glad this is more open world and has done away with the timer.

I'm hopeful and confident this will come to the PS4 and PC.
Funantic1  +   652d ago
The timer can be unlocked after beating the game. Dead Rising 3 does look great tho. Can't wait.
PFFT  +   652d ago
PC yes PS4 its highly doubtful.
tigertron  +   652d ago
Dead Rising is a multiplatform franchise, so I'd say the chance of a PS4 release is pretty high.
PFFT  +   652d ago
Remember Dead Rising 1?? Yeah?? Well there you go. Dead Rising 3 will be to XBO as Dead Rising 1 was to the 360 AND that was a TRUE exclusive title. The PS4 fanbase will have to wait for Dead Rising 4
tigertron  +   651d ago
Yes I do remember Dead Rising 1. It came to the Wii too.
PFFT  +   651d ago
But did it make it to the Ps3??? No right so yeah i highly doubt MS will let this game hit on a Sony console. NOT unless Capcom is willing to trade some thing for it.
tigertron  +   650d ago
You say it's unlikely Microsoft would be willing to let a game go to the PS3, but remember Mass Effect? that's an example of a game which left the 360 and came out on the PS3. That was because Microsoft must have sold their publishing rights to that particular game as EA bought the rights to the series.

Either way, Capcom is a multi platform developer, they even said it themselves a few years ago that they wouldn't be making exclusive games due to the costs involved, plus Microsoft is notorious for paying for timed exclusivity, so I'm positive this will hit the PS4, particularly as that is predicted to sell a bucket load.
Cherchez La Ghost  +   652d ago
Dead Rising is a good franchise. The co-op made it better on two. There are a few more books I need to collect on 2. I can't wait to get this one.

Second Screen Smarts
Speaking of DR3, got this from IGN....

Anyone who watched the E3 demo saw the climax where the player used a smartphone to call in an airstrike and completely eviscerate a shambling mass of zombies. But what Microsoft and Capcom didn’t highlight was the fact that the second screen functionality of DR3 actually exists within the world of the game, and is capable of delivering experiences far more interesting than death from above. Early on in the game, Nick finds a fancy government phone on the body of a dead agent. At this point, the player can link his or her actual phone to the game, meaning that when Nick gets a call, your phone will ring and you can actually listen to the incoming message. Kids, we have officially entered the future.

Of course, there are also standard features like map integration, but even these have some really cool twists. At any point, you can scroll through the app on your phone and tap on what you need at that given moment. Want to find the closest weapon depot? Click the icon, and a marker will appear in the game that points you in the right direction. In desperate need of health? Tap the icon, and suddenly the in-game world will glow with various sources of sustenance. I’m still not entirely sold on the general concept of "the second screen experience," but interesting implementations like this are starting to get me hyped.

......ooohhh!! Smartglass...!!!!

Game looks incredible blows anything on the PS4 out of the water.

I didn't like the first 2 games due to crap game-play but this looks so much better now if Cap-com can just just add more weapons to it like guns and other things they and Microsoft could have their own 'Last of US' type game on their hands..

I'm just hoping they actually go through with beind dark and grittier.

Part of me thinks that they are just trying to seem that way, when once we see the fully game - and all it's ridiculous weapon combonations - we might find the game to be just as silly and unrealistic as the other DR games.
Squall5005  +   652d ago
Capcom said they're targeting the CoD crowd.

They said the exactl same thing about Resident Evil 6 and look how that game turned out.

It'll be interesting to see how Dead Rising 3 ends up. I loved DR2 but I personally wasn't impressed with what I saw at E3.

This game hasn't lost it's charm it just isn't showing the wacky funny aspects of the gameplay yet. They're trying to get a bigger fan base on board which is working. One of the developers said they have a fireworks shooting crossbow... I can't wait to see the effects :)

"In terms of building the game, we originally developed it on PC and everything we were doing was breaking the bank on [Xbox] 360."

The real truth is out there!
MrTrololo  +   651d ago
Let hope it still have those silly looks from the previous games. Dead rising shouldn't become a serious zombie game and that would suck
