    So THAT’S why everything looked green.

  • Anime10121

    HOPE! NInja Gaiden 2 was published by Microsoft too.

    • Yeah and same for Mass Effect. I think Dead Rising 3 is a timed exclusive, MS is pulling this just like on 360 (Eternal Sonata, Star Ocean 4, Mass Effect, etc… all ended up on PS3 year after it’s 360 release).

      Even Gears of War is now under question from PS owners:

      • ffboi7

        Those articles are very old and if it hasn’t happened by now I have my doubts it will happen anytime soon. But yeah this is Capcom we are talking about their bound to re-release Dead Rising 3 down the line somewhere

        • Yes and I checked MS trademark on their website, I don’t see Gears of War trademark by MS, so Epic Game can have Gears on PS3 (or PS4) in the future.

          • ffboi7

            I only I said I doubt it will happen I never said it won’t. Reason being its been 7 years since the original Gears of War came out on the 360. By now most PS3 fans can really careless if it ever comes over and it doesn’t take 7 years to port over a game thats almost as old as the systems itself. Also I don’t know what your talking about but I definitely see a Microsoft Studios logo on the main Gears of War website.

          • Not that site, the MS trademark site:


            I don’t see Gears of War on their trademark site like Halo or Fable. Ninja Gaiden 2, Castle Crasher, and Mass Effect 1 had MS logo in there yet it ended up on PS3. Now after seeing ME1 going to PS3, this makes me question if Bayonetta 2 published by Nintendo is timed exclusive and we could see a PS4/Xbox One port in the future.

            As I said, Gears is still under question from PS owners and that includes me.

          • ffboi7

            I don’t have high hopes for Gears after the first one it wasn’t really anything special anymore. But props to you for wanting it. I still don’t believe it’ll see the light of day outside the Microsoft console like I said if they wanted to do it they could of done it by now whats keeping them back?

          • Well it took 5 years for ME1 to appear on PS3. Maybe Gears could get a PS4 release since I don’t know if all 4 Gears games can fit on one 60 GB blu-ray. I think a 100 GB or 1 TB blu-ray could fit all 4 Gears games in there. My only concern for releasing Gears game on PS3 would suffer a lot from it’s 360 counterpart. The PS4 can probably handle Gears of War, so I would keep watching out because you never know. I was surprised when Mass Effect 2 was announced for PS3, then after that when ME1 was announced for PS3, I was also shocked and surprised, so if Gears collection end up getting a PS4 release, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  • MasterScrub

    So that’s Capcom’s ‘big surprise’ huh.

    Dead Rising is one of my favorite games, too bad i’d rather shoot myself in the foot than buy an Xbox One.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I was expecting some silliness mixed with the seriousness…

    • Symbol de Au

      I wasn’t really watching, but when I scrolled up I think I saw a chainsaw on a sledgehammer.

      • DyLaN


  • Byas

    So, the game lost its color and its silliness when it entered new gen? D:

    • ffboi7

      Capcom going totally serious since video games need to be serious :/ how i will miss sticking servbot mask on zombies while dressed like a cowgirl from the south :/

      • B Statham

        Fuck off! How will you miss it? Just go play the old childish games.

        • ffboi7

          Dead Rising was never a serious game. One of the reason its popular is due to all the insane shit you can do. With Dead Rising 3 much of that seems to have been thrown out the window in favor for a serious tone. So you sir can clearly go “fuck off”

  • No Frank West. No care.

  • Sergio BriceƱo

    I liked every bit of the gameplay. But everytime he got on top of a vehicle I hoped the zombies would try to push the vehicle upside down or something like in movies. Still, it looked really cool.

  • Sardorim

    Zombie Outbreak and they’re gonna bomb the city? Sounds like a good idea to drive into the city and bust up my car for no reason at all!

    • DyLaN

      Its now or never deal for some ppl :P

    • ffboi7

      What I don’t understand is… what kind of resources does the main character have that allows him to call a airstrike at anytime… seems a bit odd

  • Pockystix


    that’s some good brown

  • Aoshi00

    I enjoyed Case 0 and haven’t beaten 2 yet.. I would’ve loved to beat the first game too, but the time limit really threw me off..

    Wonder when the 2nd Telltale Walking Dead game would be out.. State of Decay looks like a very exciting and scary game though, managing a group of survivors and many day to day things..

  • ffboi7

    Its a shame Microsoft was able to flash enough money in front of Capcom for them to give in and allow DR3 to be exclusive. I guess it’ll be another 1-2 years before I get to try it on the PS4

  • B Statham

    YES! XBOX ONE Can’t wait! All the best games will be on the adult console.

    • ffboi7

      adult how? care to explain how you came to this conclusion that the Xbox One is an adult console?

  • artemisthemp

    Capcom: We are sorry about taking all the fun out of Dead Rising, but Microsoft said this was the only way, we would be allow to Publish on Xbox One and it’s not like there is another Console, who don’t have DRM.
