Dead Rising 3 was released in 2013 as an Xbox One exclusive as well as a launch title. It was said to have sold very well, and a Dead Rising 4 was talked about not long after the release...
Dead Rising 4 may be only coming to one console along with PC due to Capcom financial problems
Agreed. As it stands it sounds like Capcom is doing this based on lack of funds they don't really have the money to make it multi-platform from day one so they're likely going to need either Sony or Microsoft to put up the funding in my personal opinion doesn't bode well for the company.
They would be stupid not to bring it to PS4. But anyway, I hope they do something to innovate the franchise a bit because it's one of my favorites but it's starting to get a bit repetitive. The zombie comedy is one of my favorite themes and I think they can do a lot more with it.
This was the first game that I played for the Xbox One, and also my first time playing the series in general. It was pretty fun in short spurts, but I didn't care for it all that much. I've found that I definitely prefer a bit more of a mature tone when it comes to the zombie genre. I hope that it ends up being a multiplat, though, for those that are excited for the game, and that only game one platform.
Dead Rising has never been fully exclusive. They eventually come out on other systems. I'm surprised Capcom hasn't gone bankrupt yet.
But wouldn't that be more of an incentive to put out across all 3 platforms to recuperate any financial losses?
That would be ideal but unfortunately Capcom is in a bad financial state and can't afford to soly publish games...they will need that MS money to make DR4.
Given their issues they may just go for the Xbox/Windows 10 combo
Why? DR3 wasn't exactly the blockbuster they thought it would be, given the supposedly large install base of PC & XB1. Still it sold better on the XB1 though with 2mil units, as for the PC, and on steam at least it sold 365k. Was DR3 available for the PC other than steam? I think it would be foolish of Capcom to ignore the PS4 this go around, unless MS is paying for the development of DR4. http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/... http://steamspy.com/app/265...
"I think it would be foolish of Capcom to ignore the PS4 " They brought SFV to PS4 and noone cared. SO why would they care? At the end it comes down to MS, if they want to pay the money its exclusive.
Just because the PS4 has more units doesn't necessarily guarantee more sales for a game like Dead Rising. The Xbone lacks a lot of Japanese support, and its line up is looking more sparse than the PS4's. That's when a game like Dead Rising shines. The series also has more history on the Xbox, with 1 and 3 being sleeper hit exclusives and the Xbox version of 2 being the best selling version despite a lower install base. DR2 was also one of the first free GWG games - giving it the best exposure. I just hope this one goes all out because DR3 was so obviously a 360 game at one point.
http://www.polygon.com/2014... 1 month over 1 million sales to a 3.2million install base. That's a solid launch. Now with 20 million out there they will sell more then sf5 did in its first 3 months
@bruce I bought it at launch and I will buy it again. I loved that game a lot and will have no problem dropping money on it no matter if it's on my Xbox or ps4
I'm not too sure about that as Capcom is still a company and they still need money they're likely going to side with Sony.
SFV sided with Sony and look where that got them, it doesn't matter who they side with but I think they will side with some one
Why . please tell me you are not equaling install base to number of game units sold .
@ YinYang Capcom deserved the negatively for SFV because of the lack in content and online server issues. They even admitted it needed more polish before release http://www.gamespot.com/art... "Tsujimoto explained that Capcom has learned over the past year that "it's best to spend a little more time in developing and running a high-quality title that will perform well globally," even if that takes longer. He specifically cited Street Fighter V as an example of a game that could have benefited from staying in development longer "Some aspects of Street Fighter V needed more polish, such as the lack of content and server issues at launch," he said. "Accordingly, we feel it's better to give a little more time to development than before, and have made slight adjustments to our portfolio."" Fact is Capcom rushed the game out
@Yin- Siding with Sony isn't the reason why SFV sold poorly bud. Sony doesn't own Capcom, they didn't making SFV, they didn't publish SFV, they don't own the SF IP... SFV sold poorly because of quality issues. It matters greatly who the side with as they need not only the funding, but the install base to make more money. I think it would be a bad idea to side with MS considering the lessor install base. They would basically be selling less on top of not having funding... @Scorp- so don't factor simple math? ...thats an easy ignore bud.
But Capcom had funding for Deadrising 3 by MS and it sold it great on Xbox One bud, soooooo I don't really understand your whole reasoning of your side with sony theory, lmao.
As a Sony/Nintendo gamer I can honestly say DR3 is he only XB1 game I really wish I could have played. If they secure it as exclusive again I suppose kudos to them but I would appreciate a multiplatform release.
@G-Red- "But Capcom had funding for Deadrising 3 by MS and it sold it great on Xbox One bud, soooooo I don't really understand your whole reasoning of your side with sony theory, lmao" People do not buy games based on who funds them, they buy games based on quality. Is it good? etc. Dead Rising 3 actually sold less then Dead Rising 2, which only shows that something isn't connecting with Capcom's consumers. They are losing ground and folks are not returning to their series in historic numbers. As you're own example shows Dead Rising selling less then its last entry... SF sold less Dead Rising sold less DmC sold LESS RE6 SOLD LESS Sooooo what is that telling you about Capcom? Never mind who is funding, I don't buy games based on funding bud. I buy it based on whether or not its fun or not and SFV I can honestly say, had issues enough to warrant folks questioning this company. I think its funny that in you're mind, selling "great" is 2 million for such a game, yet you are making it seem as if SFV selling 1.5 is this outrage lol Last SF had a base install base of around 3 million. Last Dead Rising before 3 sold 3 million. Neither SFV nor Dead Rising 3 sold better then their previous bud.... "I don't really understand your whole reasoning of your side with sony theory" You don't understand much bud, if Capcom is going to move low units of its series regardless of platform, they might as well do it with the company that has a higher install base to give them a fighting chance.
@edmix The last street fighter sold 3million to an install base of 100+ million Dead rising 2 sold to an install base of 100+million Dead rising 3 sold over 1 million in a month to an install base of about 3.2 million. That's not even a comparable situation
If they want to sell a lot they must consider the PS4 and not the xbox but It will depend on who will want to finance Capcom and giving how the last one performed, I doubt Sony is interested on it giving all the exclusives that are coming to PS4 already.
Yes! Give me my dead rising!
Sweet bring it .Loved the screen full of Zombies effect DR3 had made the game much more intense .
Did they get rid of the time limit in DR3? If so then that's all I wanted changed from the series.
Yeah, it was made optional and called "Nightmare Mode"
That was what made it different IMO. Dead rising 1 is still my favorite. Doing everything within the time limit was stupid hard but fun. Those survival achievements were practically impossible without bricking your 360 lol, that's the only thing I didn't like.
Different dosen't mean good It was presented as a sandbox but the time limit restricted you and ruined the fun You want to do a main mission, explore, have fun, do a side mission, have more fun, explore, do a main mission etc well you can't because it made you choose. What's the point of a fun sandbox game like this when you are heavily restricted in what you can do
I was a big dead rising fan and played them all but DR3, but I have to say I hated the time limit lol. Let me play and replay so I can get everything I want! Lol
In dead rising's case it meant good. You have set amount of time before they carpet bomb your location. The time limit is restrictive only if you wanted to do everything. Completionist mode. You can easily do a casual run and explore but that's not the point of the game. Dead rising 3 took out the time limit and the intensity dropped 10 fold. It's not a GTA sandbox.
Well, im a completionist. Always
It can go to either console it wont affect me since i have both the XB1 and PS4. Freaking HYPED!!!!
Devil May Cry Need Now. Has Been 8 Years... Pweeeeeaaaaazzzzz....
lol, would be nice, but we don't "need" a DMC. Great series, but with Capcom's issues currently, I don't think they need a low selling series right now. They might need to stay with their top games until things get better. DMC has never really been a huge seller for them.
Low selling series ? For what it is DMC is at least a mid-selling series. DMC4 sold very well for what it was, that's for sure.
DMC4 is the only really good selling DMC at 3 million. The last entry sold like 1.70 million. For something like Driveclub to move 2 million on 1 platform got that team axed. Selling 1.70 million of a game across 3 platforms is not a great thing. I'm saying its low selling for what it is. This isn't 2008 so I won't go based off of what it used to sell. The drop off might be based on DMC4 not being like DMC3. The tail comes with the title after, same thing happened off of RE4. RE5 sold GANGBUSTERS.......once folks played RE5 realizing its not as good as RE4, how many returned for RE6? You can count sales, you can't count how many people are happy about such a release. You only know this when the next title comes. Most people can be disappointed with a game and not return it, that is really the trick here. Not counting sales, counting willing gamers that will buy and that were happy with the releases. DmC shows that may those 3 million didn't all like what they played, thus didn't return to the series. I didn't. I liked DMC4, but NOTHING like how I liked DMC3, so when DmC was announced, I could care less. The main DMC team wasn't doing it, thus didn't care. For right now, even has a HUGE DMC fan, I'm merely taking this stance as a business man. I don't think its wise for them to go out and fund another DMC after their last one sold 1.70 million. Not saying I don't want one, merely that based on its low sales, I don't think its a great idea based on where Capcom is at currently.
@edmix don't count dmc dmc as a sales reference it should be painfully clear to capcom why that didn't sell. I'm a huge dmc fan but refused to buy it and I'm sure many other dmc fans followed
@DanteVFenris666- I didn't buy it either, but its still a DmC game. Besides DMC4, the series isn't known to push huge units. Sorry it upsets people, but I'm a huge fan of the series and I've accepted this. Many on here love using what they personally or emotionally love to drive factually information. How is DMC doing lately? Its not moving 3 million units an entry. That happened once... DMC3 sold around 1.3 million. I can't fault them from not going to make another game ie DMC5. I do't think it makes sense for the company at this time to gamble a release on a series that is very up and down and isn't solid or stable. "I'm a huge dmc fan but refused to buy it and I'm sure many other dmc fans followed" I agree, but how does this translate into Capcom doing another release? EA stopped Dead Space based on low sales, it sold like 2 million, Dead Space 2 sold around the same, but faster, Dead Space 3 didn't sell enough to keep the series alive and that game released on 3 platforms. Thus, if EA can get rid of a series based on low sales, pretty sure so could Capcom as you have to seriously consider.....EA didn't tell the public it was open to be bought out. http://www.ign.com/articles... Love the DMC series, but not going to let how much I like it, cloud my judgement or reality of the situation. Me liking it, isn't million and millions liking it. If I owned Capcom, I wouldn't release a DMC this gen unless they had a real HUGE turnaround. SFV is not a good look for them and if they can fail with a Street Fighter, god help us with their other IPs. This isn't a good time for Capcom to be gambling hoping for it to do well. They need to if anything outsource it to the original team ie Platinum and get that original staff on board to even have a shot of it doing well.
"May or may not be an exclusive." Wow... That's informative! In other news, [insert thing] may or may not happen!
its so true, but folks fall for it every time.
This^ This sort of thing ruins n4g for me
As much as I would like to see this on PS4. It would not make much sense. Considering Dead Rising 1 and 3 never appeared on a PlayStation console. However it would not make much sense if it skipped the PS4. With Capcom needing as much money as possible (they got it wrong with SF5 only being on 2 platforms).
i hope it comes to ps4 but im not holding my breath. I'll just get it on the one but would love to play some coop with ps4 buddies.
SF V sold poorly because of lack of content, not because it was on PS4 and PC.
O right I thought it was because they only released it on 2 platforms. Am not a street fighter fan so I didn't pay much attention to it.
Yes but how many of the informed gamers actually bought the game. My point being the majority of console gamers were likely unaware of the lack of content until after they bought it.
@ game4funz Capcom announced the plans to release half the content and the rest in the summer, before the game launched. Im not sure how gamers interested in SFV would be unaware of this. Capcom is probably expecting the sales of SFV to increase when the rest of the content is released (free for those who already bought the game), and that doesnt seem like an improbablilty. Personally, Im waiting for the rest of the content to buy the game.
I don't see how anyone can really spin the idea of SFV's failure being down to not launching on the XBO...I mean it launched on PS4 & PC, the two biggest platforms, each one doubling the install base of the XBO...numbers wise the most an XBO release could add would be an extra 20% to the sales, and that wouldn't have saved the game. The game performed poorly because it released poorly, plain & simple. As far as DR4 on PS4 I personally couldn't care less. Never really got into the game, it was a decent way to spend a couple hours but it never grabbed me. I'd rather see Sony fund something like DMC for their consoles, I think a game like that would cater to the PS community more than a DR game would.
They would have to be stupid to put it out as an exclusive
You're getting dislikes but it's true, Xbox One can not sale games on its own
Last one sold 2 million units which is pretty solid so don't know what your talking about.
Last one sold over 2mil
I think your confusing DR3 sells with SF5 sells.
To me Dead Rising 3 was the best of the series. Running zombies over with the steam roller was so much fun. The weapons were great also.
Can you imagine what they could do with cloud compute!? I hope they utilize it somehow.
Using the destruction from Crackdown 3 would be awesome , blowing up houses full of zombies or taking down an infested skyscraper
I don't think you understand cloud computing. It's hella expensive. I don't think Microsoft which just let a third party use up their server space. Cloud computing is basically doing the same thing that mmos do but instead of using it for keeping track of all players and those calculation it's doing physical calculations at least in the case of crackdown. Mmos counteract that cost buy having monthly fees, microtransactions or constant flow of dlc.
It was fun but the story was just the worst from the series
2 was the worst story in my opinion. 1 had the timer which made you feel rushed and you couldn't explore.
The motorcycle steam roller mix was hilarious in DR3
Well Japan does have a thing for steam rollers. Ever sense DIO came onto the scene
Pls be on PS4 I love the dead rising series.
Hopefully it stays Xbox exclusive...fingers X
What a completely ignorant thing to say, fanboy to the max
Sure whatever you say there buddy. I know Dead Rising as a Xbox game. I could care less if you Playstation gamers get it or not. Funny how its ignorant but had they come out and said it was no longer exclusive on Xbox. Youd have plenty of real fanboys(like yourself) saying how Xbox lost another exclusive.. you cant win on this site. Everyone is either trolling or a fanboy. Lol....
Why? If you're a gamer then it shouldn't matter if it's Xbox exclusive or not.
But I am a real gamer, who is just giving his honest opinion. Why would I want another Xbox exclusive going to Playstation(even tho they got a Dead Rising game in past) Just because I want a game to stay exclusive doesn't mean Im not a gamer. You guys are just to damn emotional....
