Along with the Dead Rising 2 release date announcement, Capcom also announces the exclusivity of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero for the XBOX 360 via XBOX Live.
"One more for the good guys"
Give a year and it might come late to the party on the ps3. Oh well I don't care its just good to know micro continues to get great 3rd party support, I guess they can afford it since they don't spend alot of money paying so many in-house studio's light bills. lol JOY
Nice snag Microsoft well done, will be enjoying this.
Yea, I wonder if the game is only timed exclusive?
It will come to PSN (sigh)
I am guessing that this only a timed exclusive just like the other DLCs out there.
Highly doubt it's timed, you PS3 gamers never played the original so why would you care about a prologue that bridges the first game to the second? Completely pointless.
...BECAUSE it's a prologue maybe?
Dead Rising: CASE ZERO an exclusive download only on Xbox LIVE, will launch prior to the full game and provide a playable prologue that bridges the story between the two titles. Prologue, not prequel. Edit: Nice edit bro.
Sorry mate, genuine typing error there. I thought i got there before anyone noticed ;)
If PS3 owners don't care about this, then why would this be a "snag"? It would be in Capcom's best interest to keep it exclusive if PS3 owners really didn't care as you said, so there would be nothing to snag there. So either you're wrong one way (and PS3 owners do care, i.e. there's a market there for capcom), or... you're wrong the other way (by Microsoft not snagging anything). Children. *sigh*
There goes Baum trying really hard to sound intelligent.
timed exclusive folks! we knew it.
Why would it be timed? You didn't play the first one so why would you even care? Thought so.
Probably because GTA DLC and Fallout DLC weren't exclusive. MW2 DLC is also timed exclusive. Just saying...
and people wonder why its call the Waitstation 3.
i have a friend at capcom, microsoft paid for it to be developed but will also be on ps3. so thanks microsoft.
You have a friend?
this exclusive stuff is killing this gen and its hurting gamers in the long run....preorder BadCo2 and get to play a standard mode of the game a week early... now this exclusive which wont make me sway to pick up any version, until I know more
exclusivity will be pretty common this generation. I noticed Microsoft is more willing to pay for exclusivity while Sony is just there relaxing Lol
Ehhh, after Prince of Persia, I learned to not trust DLC. I'll probably get this on xbox so I can listen to Michael Jackson's Thriller while I play.
I give it 6 months before it's on PSN. Like all other 360 exclusive DLC is
6 months is too early. Make it a year!
Ah so Capcom is releasing a prequel that explains the story and character to only one consumer base. Then they wonder why the PS3 and PC versions will sell badly.
It's because MS paid for this exclusivity Lol That's why gamers will prefer the XBOX 360 version.
yeah we know how "exclusive" this will stay... lol prolly MS paid another 20 million for something that will eventually make its way... Basically Exclusive DLC is all that MS is left with...
Why would you guys need DLC that ties a game you never got to play to the sequel? I think this will stay a 360 exclusive
Good point. I have Dead Rising on 360, so I'm getting 2 for the 360. Only makes sense.
I had the first DR on my 360. 360 broke. Now have no choice but to get 2 on my PS3. Result = I lose out
Keep Beta Testing Microsotft. Thats what you'll keep doing this entire generation.
Micro$luts & their DLC ROFLMMFAO! OMG! :D I give it one month.
one of the perks of ps3 owners. we let beta testers, well, test the game first before we fully enjoy it. thanks bot you are useful to us.
"one of the perks of ps3 owners. we get to wait until 360 gamers are done playing and the content is a year old, well, enjoy the game first before we enjoy it. thanks bot you are useful to us."
Im currently boycotting 360 when it comes to multiplatform games. I do not buy multiplats for 360 anymore, i always hated MS as a company and them legally stealing money through their MS points system. I refuse to give them more of my money.
Killzonegamer84 i am the same only buy 360 exclusive anything else i will get ps3 or pc Microsoft just continue to steal of its customers by selling overprice hdd wifi or wasting money on stupid timed exclusive games or dlc and charge for online that should of been free start. But really its just the die hard xbox fan boys fault they just keep defending microsft and spend there money on overpriced items
blah blah blah.. So why did you click on an Xbox/360/MS only article then? If you hate them so much than go away.. seems simple...
I can live with certain games being exclusive to a console but this trend of DLC or parts of a game being exclusive is BS! The whole experience should be available to all or not at all. I hate this [email protected]! It's just a b!tch slap to the fans
I could care less about this exclusive downloadable game since I never played the first game. I may pick up the Dead Rising 2 eventually but its not a major game that I am too excited about. However, its good for those who are fans of the franchise as long as the price is reasonable.
So is every announced coming from X10 going to be plagued with the usual suspects doing the "It will come to the PS3" dance? Seriously, nobody gives 2 sh!ts about if it's timed or real exclusive.. 360 gamers just want to enjoy the announcement and not have to argue some fictitious assumption from other single platform holders who think they know everything.. Anyway, this seems like a cool thing to get on XBL but is it just DLC or is it an actual XBL game? I guess I will re-read. I do remember reading that Capcom had a special surprise for 360 gamers for making the first Dead Rising a success since it went multiplatform.. Maybe this is it? Shame the game itself is looking like crap compared to the first one..
360 is such a FAKE console.
Really? Because mine is 6 inches in front of me and it's very real.
trash.... the only dlc i will put money towards is fps dlc. that goes for ps3 and 360. case zero, the treat of console exclusive, has has worn thin.....
The game has terrible controls and ridiculously small text not to mention the story (and what little there is) is boring & generic.
Phew, I thought it was the full game for a while...I'm glad to see it's just needless DLC. :]
If you dont have Dead Rising on the 360 you wont NEED this DLC as the sole reason of it is to transition from the first game to the second, thats why its pretty pointless releasing this on the PS3 - PS3 owners will be like 'WTF?' because they dont know what happened in the first game. Dead Rising 2 is a standalone game, you can play it without playing Dead Rising 1 and you wont miss a thing. This DLC is just to fill the gap between the first and second for those that did play the first.
That's like saying Dead Rising 2 shouldn't be on ps3 because the first one wasn't. This exclusive business is crazy. They shouldn't be giving the finger to one half of their audience, but it's money...whatevs. I'd probably pimp out my mom if Microsoft came to my front door with a bag full of cash.
lol its nothing of the sort. what im saying is that Dead Rising 2 has NOTHING to do with Dead Rising 1 by itself. therefore Dead Rising 2 can survive on the PS3 without the Prologue (or whatever you want to call it) because its 'story' is self-contained. the 360 however, will have 2 games called Dead Rising, but with no link between the 2. this DLC is simply giving the original games owners a link between the 2, giving them something extra. PS3 owners wont miss anything because they wouldnt understand whats going on in the prologue because they didnt play the first game. 360 owners will now know what happened after the conclusion of dead rising 1, and how the story in dead rising 2 came about. its like if Gears of War 3 got released on PS3 and 360, but with all new characters, new settings, and was basically a new game but still set in the old universe. itd be fine for PS3 owners because they didnt have the first 2 games, and this third one has everything needed to stand on its own 2 feet. but 360 owners who know all of what happened in Gears 1 and 2 would be like 'wtf? what happened to marcus and dom?'. see what i mean?
didnt like the first one u can keep it
So was the release date for Dead Rising announced yet? Right now that`s all i care about but i will be buying this game also.
End of August/beginning of September, depending on your country.
Well, Sony did the same thing last year with the Joker exclusives..nobody was crying about it. I as a PS360 owner just get the best version and version with the most contents. Problem solved. Simple as pie.
Hopefully, this is timed. I've pretty much decided I'm playing DR2 on PS3 now.
