Nice to see Capcom and it's developers support the Xbox 360. Dead Rising is indeed a gem.

I just bought Dead Rising so I can play it on my new 360 come Christmas day. Interesting read.


it is a really good game. can't wait for the part 2.

thereapersson3463d ago

I understand that the timer for the missions was there to fit in with the limited time the characters had to survive in the story, but the time-based missions still annoyed me.

That said, the game itself was a lot of fun.

Chainsaws and the appropriate books are your friends ...

It great that CAPCOM support 360 in japan, only by doing that would CAPCOM know they have made a terrible mistake.

TIKUP3463d ago

the game was alot of fun and cant wait for the new one, it better be on the ps3 aswell

I just think it will be better over there because of a few spikes like in the past months ,everytime a major rpg get released ... but otherwise meh .

The Major test will be Star Ocean 4 ... no doubt it will sell a lot in japan , the question is , how many 360 will it sells ? It should logically bring the same kind of spikes than last remnant , vesperia and infinite undiscovery , only bigger .
But if MS is unlucky it might just sells to the current base , wich would be a good numbers , but still .

I think MS should have pushed to get FFXIII in japan as well . Sure it might have seemed suicidal , but imagine yourselves as one of the hesitating japanese players .. loyal to Sony and Nintendo to an extent , planning on getting a PS3 for FFXIII and white knight chronicle , but suddenly discovering that on a console that already got 4 major j rpg in a row (remnant , vesperia , discovery , star ocean) you can also get final fantasy ..
You sure would pick the "dark side" .

But now outside of tales and tri ace fans , some might just dismiss the console , and just go along their original ff plans .. and it's a missed opportunity and shame .

NaiNaiNai3463d ago

well games like last rem wouldnt really sell consoles since it was a new IP. i have a feeling SO4 will move alot of consoles, mainly cause its a really well trusted series in jap, its up there with the FF's.
