Dead Rising 4 may be only coming to one console along with PC due to Capcom financial problems

_-EDMIX-_1841d ago

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.

Kingdomcome2471841d ago

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.

XanderZane1841d ago

Dead Rising has never been fully exclusive. They eventually come out on other systems. I'm surprised Capcom hasn't gone bankrupt yet.

blakstarz1841d ago

But wouldn't that be more of an incentive to put out across all 3 platforms to recuperate any financial losses?

Fin_The_Human1841d ago

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

barb_wire1841d ago

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.

"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.

Concertoine1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

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.

Kribwalker1841d ago

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

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.

YinYangGaming1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

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

ScorpiusX1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

Why . please tell me you are not equaling install base to number of game units sold .

DemonChicken1841d ago

@ 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

"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

_-EDMIX-_1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

@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.

gangsta_red1841d ago

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.

SmielmaN1841d ago

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.

_-EDMIX-_1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

@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

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.

Kribwalker1840d ago


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.

opinionated1842d ago

Yes! Give me my dead rising!

ScorpiusX1842d ago

Sweet bring it .Loved the screen full of Zombies effect DR3 had made the game much more intense .

-Foxtrot1842d ago

Did they get rid of the time limit in DR3? If so then that's all I wanted changed from the series.

Thisgengaming1842d ago

Yeah, it was made optional and called "Nightmare Mode"

opinionated1841d ago

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.

-Foxtrot1841d ago

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

SmielmaN1841d ago

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

opinionated1841d ago (Edited 1841d ago )

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.

KiwiViper851841d ago

Well, im a completionist. Always
