Sony may have talked Capcom into making Dead Rising 2 PS3 Exclusive.
Its their best title to date and i don't think it would be smart to allow them to do it, but who knows its a rumor anyways so we will see.
...Capcom wants to make money, and they made a lot with the 360 and Dead Rising... Capcom isn't that stupid to make the sequel a PS3 exclusive.
who says playstation is less popular than xbox?
Last time i checked ps's have tens of millions more fans than xbox.
Tens of millions more fans? Get your head out of your ass and stop posting stupid remarks
Get your head out of MS ass and face the facts moron playstation has tens of millions more fans than xbox so STFU.
Give me some factual numbers Thats all im asking.
Here are the numbers End of June 2006: 5 million 360's sold End of June 2006: Zero PS3's End of August 2006: 7 million 360's sold End of August 2006: Zero PS3's sold November 2006: 10 million 360's sold November 2006: PS3 is on short delivery, Sony fanboys are buying 360's and have fun playing the hottest exclusives
Hahahahahahah you are joking right no seriously you must be joking.
Wat are u talkin about themart? ps3 isnt out yet, well in ur time it wasnt, DONT BE A D______(COLORFUL WORD)
Uh, I guess this is the official EGM thread now. Or something.
103 million PS2s shipped and well close to 100 million sold does say alot about fan base vs a 25 million xboxes shipped. and considering that Xbox360 is now free of shortages, one would think that it would be selling in high volumes, seeing that 360 fans say its hottest console, yet the DS, PSP, and PS2 fly shelves. What could the rest of the world be waiting for when the 360 is so "hot"? well my guess is every one wants a PS3 and Wii. that says alot about a "hot" next gen console 9 months deep on market, and a full year come launch of it's competitors this fall. and still aint selling in the volumes it would like ... ok yep. but hey dont bash me i have a 360, you asked for facts and i gave you some number thats all just saying, since all you 360 fan kids tout the 360 as all that, a bag of chips and a soda. news flash... it's not, and very far from it.
well first im not a 360 fanboy, second you prove some good points. Thats all i was asking for.
Actual next gen numbers Here are the numbers End of June 2006: 5 million 360's sold End of June 2006: Zero PS3's End of August 2006: 7 million 360's sold End of August 2006: Zero PS3's sold November 2006: 10 million 360's sold November 2006: PS3 is on short delivery, Sony fanboys are buying 360's and have fun playing the hottest exclusives
You are assuming that everyone is ready to buy a next gen console. Wrong, there are people out there that are just now buying a PS2 or XBOX. Right now "early adopters" are buying next gen consoles, not everyone, and 7 million is a huge number for this market. This holiday season will be the true beginning of the "normal" market catching on to the next gen buzz. Expect to see a lot of 360's sold again this holiday (without the shortages).
YOU HAVE TO BE SOME OF THE MOST STUPIDEST SONY FANBOYS EVER!! SURE THE PS1 AN PS2 HAD MILLIONS OF USERS(FANS)BUT THE PS3 HAS NONE AS OF YET!!AN AT THE CURRENT PRICE IT MIGHT NOT EVEN REACH HALF OF ITS OLD USERS(FANS)!! LETS NOT TALK ABOUT HOW MANY FANS THEY HAD TALK ABOUT HOW MANY THEY HAVE NOW!!!
The next DR its not going to be a 360 exclusive also. First is a great game. Dammm working I didnt have enough time to play it yet. I even get past carlito or wathever its name is. Second is one of the fastest selling and more popular games, so I even believe the first one could end up in a PS3. Remember something, in this generation the mayority of games are not that exclusive.
Depends, if MS puts the bag with money like they did before. It's just the question if DR is important enough in the end or not.
Dude i think it is i hope it doesnt become a PS3 exclusive i doubt it will and who cares about some crappy forum post
because of the high price of developing a game nowadays there will really be no such thing as a full exclusive game, unless the ip being developed is by a first party developer or one that sony or MS owns.you would NEVER see halo on the ps3 an you would Never see gran Tourismo on xbox. but!!!money moves mountains, so one day you could see MSG4 on xbox since sony doesnt own that developer!!so one should expect that all of capcom,ubisoft,EA, games to be cross platform!!because in the end its all about the dollar!!
Finally, someone who makes sense.
yea i dont think that they would make it exclusive when they can just reap the benefits of releasing on 2 platforms
come on the only one losing exclusives id the ps3 only because its in hot water. not because its a bad system but the people are beginning to merge over and "Jump In" 360 is in a good place right now hehe this article makes me laugh
Dead Rising 2 will be as exclusive as assassins creed lol. sony [email protected] stop being stupid ass holes and think for second: dead rising is the fastest selling game to date on the 360 nuff sed.
Shame the graphics fu(king suck.
u gotta think about the other things, FIRST , if this game IS that great it would do great on other consoles, SECOND = capcom is a jap, n if u didnt kno the 360 dosent sell well in well, Japan. So if they would b lik, failin own country. THIRD exclusives dont last that long i mean Oblivion PS3 Assassins Creed 360 eh traitors. i hate how m$ sez its an exclusive when developers want to make a game on a next gen console, but theres only 1 so out so far (Microsoft). they mark their games "ONLY FOR XBOX". but a good exampl would b PREy 2 search it
Didn't like the game anyway. Got repetitive and boring way too fast! Would rather spend my time playing GRAW.
this is good news for a lot of future ps3 owners (including myself)
1st, EGM's "Rumor Mill" is beyond crap...when was the last time they were ever correct? Plus, given the magazine's 3 month delay between writing and printing, do you really think Capcom switched to PS3 _prior_ to the first game's release? Second, Dead Rising goes on to become the fastest selling Next Gen game...which should put it at the top of the general sales charts. Third, We just read Capcom's stance on switching platforms with the Lost Planet Interview: "Takeuchi confirms that LP:EC will remain exclusive to the Xbox 360, saying, “Lost Planet is an exclusive Xbox 360 title. Typically when the development team sets out to create a game, we focus development of the title on a single platform and for Lost Planet that platform is the Xbox 360.” Would you take a hugely successful game and then decide to rebuild from the ground up on a different platform or maybe just upgrade what you've got and release a sequel in less time to make more money... I'm _so sick_ of the EMG/1UP PS3 absurdity.
I was really hyped about Dead Rising so I bought the game the day it came out. After about 30 - 60 minutes of gameplay I began to realise the truth... this game sucks! Using any kind of projectile weapon is incredibly annoying (except the shotgun). The save system is terrible. The missions are boring. I hate escorting people back to the security room. Everyone I know who has tried it has hated it. Why people want to punish themselves by playing this game is beyond me. I ended up playing Prey instead. Dead Rising will be sold on ebay.
You didn't like Dead Rising. Well, okay, that's your opinion, but while it has alot of faults, just killing zombies with plates is hilarious!!!
The whole news is just fake and prolly submited by an idiot
This game sold over 500,000 copies in two weeks in the US alone it will be released on the 8th Sep. in Europe where it will sell just as much if not more. This game deserves to be on both platforms as it would be nice for Sony fans to experience this game. As for the rumor, that is certainly out of the question, considering that it is already the fastest selling next gen game and DR2 will be no different. Capcom know it obviously and to lock it to only one console is suicide and a huge loss in profits. Same thing will happen as with Assasins Creed exclusivity. You got to think objectively and not from your personal fanboyish ignorant point of view.
i find this rumor hard to believe... multi-platform now that is a rumor that is more believeable. with DR selling on the 360 the way it did capcom knows alot of those million (by the end of the year i think this game will see 1mil copies world wide) will definitly come back for DR 2. capcom wouldn't throw away an instant 500k copies of DR 2 that would sell on the 360, that is money in the bank. given its popularity and the fact they are in it for the money it makes more sense it would be released on both platforms.
why take a product that was very successful on the 360, and move it to the ps3. from a marketing prespective, it's retarded. A sequel coming to both platforms seems more likely.
are worthless, biased, lying, unreliable crap sources. Nothing they say is ever true. The reviews from 1up are especially pathetic (look at the 360 Saints Row review to see what I mean - the guy didn't even play the game). Their rumors have NEVER come true and are totally biased towards Sony. What about RE5 becoming a Sony exclusive? Wrong, Capcom confirmed it's still multi-platform. EGM/1up are fanboys that are desperately clinging to the past Sony success even though it's fading. The PS3 will still sell, but the consoles will have a basically even market share this time around. MS has WAY more money than Sony and can afford more exclusives from 3rd parties. Therefore, it's obvious that the 360 will have more exclusives. Doesn't mean the PS3 will suck, but these morons at EGM/1up keep making up crap to deflect the building 360 hype. Hey, kinda reminds you of Sony doesn't it?
but somehow that rumor sounds funny
is not Stupid..They see that they can make some $$$ on either platform. From a business stand of view what would you do? Not that I care really, just get it for the console you have but yeah, makes for less flaming on these boards when these games are on all platforms. In a way the xbox 360 is gaining grounds on marketshare.
Did u check out that capcom survey(online) for a chance to win a high def tv that came with the game? One of the questions asked, "Would you purchase a new gaming system just to play a sequel to Dead Rising?"
could care less. so now the ps3 fans are happy for a 360 game. i am pretty sure that the sony fanboys said this game was stupid. lol funny how opinions change
yea i think ur wrong, im uber sony fanboy extrodinaire i think...ur wrong. just, thats not even a question, then again wat the 360 fanboys said about assassins creed b4 it was multiplatform could differ it.
Dude...is that a boston terrier in your pic. Mine's a boston too...if yours is... BTW...atreyu...YOU IDIOT! What sony fanboys were saying DR was a bad game? EVERYONE loves that game. IT'S FROM CAPCOM!!! HELLO! They do DMC, RE, and VEIWTIFUL JOE! Who doesn't love those games? They're incredible! idiot
You're saying that MS...the smaller of the two companies...has more money than Sony? You're freakin' kidding me! Sony is NOT BROKE...despite everyone's thoughts and feelings. They take out loans because they believe in their products! Unlike someone who dropped support for their first system... Sony has a LOT more money than MS. I don't have any links for that...but it's freaking common knowledge. Even ask realdeal...your god!
eh? Who told you that? Microsoft are THE biggest company in the world and you think Sony are bigger. Methinks you got your facts wrong.
Or Xbox 360 fangirls that don't want to admit that Dead Rising 2 will be a (PS3) exclusive lol in the near future there probably going to make a next sequel to Lost Planet 2 for the (PS3) only and samething with Gears of War 2 which probably it will be.
maybe a port or a multiplat sequal, i have 360 dont care is ps3 gets our games , i want therse too !, u guys need the zombie love
technically gashead, sony is bigger than microsoft, yea M$ owns in comp industry but sony does everything, comp, games, tvs, electronic accessories, n movies, which they own a few (more than one) companies in
but besides that i still belive that dead rising n re5 would b on a ps3, cause hey dont make the world revolve around you. capcom = japansese dev. xbox 360 doesnt do well in japan (FACT,google it LATER), they cant afford to fail their own people!
