Capcom USA has a limited edition bundle of Dead Rising 2 packed in a steelbook Zombrex case. While our bundle doesn’t include a desktop zombie, it has a ton of other zombie neutralizing goodies.


A syringe pen, 25-page prescription notepad, safety card, sales brochure, art book, and Dead Rising 2 are inside every Zombrex box. Here’s where the Dead Rising 2 limited editions differ. The PlayStation 3 package comes with a Blu-ray disc with a 24 minute making of Dead Rising 2 featurette and a code for a dynamic XMB theme. Capcom’s Xbox 360 bundle drops the theme and includes a disc with the Zombrex Dead Rising sun movie and the making of featurette.


The Dead Rising 2 limited edition retails for $79.99, $20 more than a vanilla game.

    I was already planning on getting this game, now I’m even more planning on getting this game!

    Time to go pre-order at game stop!

    Damn the lack of 12 inch zombie sucks

  • Ah, no Servbot head, but still pretty cool.
    So the Xbox edition gets the film? That’s good to hear. I just read that they’re releasing “episodes” of the film starting August 4 on XBL, before even the official site shows them.

    So uh, the PS3 gets a theme, while the 360 gets a movie?

    If I were actually planning to get the game, I know which version I’d buy.

      Yeah but unfortunately since the PS3 is not getting the movie that means none of us can watch it in HD, and in my opinion SD quality movie is not much better then a theme. This should have been like SF4, people can say what they want about console preferences but blu-ray is vastly superior to DVD.

      ** Edit **
      Checking Capcom’s website it says the movie is printed on a 360 game disc, meaning it will be presented in HD, which is nice. Still Blu-ray would be my preferred choice as you wont be able to play this movie on anything but a 360.

  • Meh… When I read the title I was all excited and was upset that I had pre-ordered Dead Rising 2 last year with a Amazon $10 off coupon… (seeing you can’t re-use it… and if I canceled… I’d lose it) because I’d rather get the LE… but I think I’ll stick with the $10 off reg. edition than spend $20 more for junk.

  • With the way that the PS3 version has been treated, I’ve decided that I will pick this game up, but I’ll do it used. I might’ve actually picked up the special edition if it came with the movie or that Dead Rising 1.5 game that they put up on XBL. But, I guess Capcom doesn’t want PS3 money.

      Don’t get yourself all worked up just yet, much like Lost Planet 2 it remains to be seen if this game will be able to even live up to the original, let alone surpass it. I’m even less enthusiastic knowing Inafune has only oversaw development via conference calls and demo play tests (from what I have read). I can forgive Capcom for screwing up Lost Planet 2 and RE5 but three strikes and your out, if Dead Rising 2 turns out poorly I will have lost a bit of faith in Capcom.

    So no PC version limited edition?

  • Ugh, I don’t know if I’m happy or disappointed, cause the EU version has a toy but no artbook… and I’m such a sucker for artbooks!
