Capcom broke a few records when they release the Dead Rising 2 prologue on XBL last week, and then they wanted to brag about it. Check this out:
Capcom is happy to announce that its recently released downloadable title, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, has broken all records on Xbox LIVE with the best week one unit sales in the history of all content distributed through Xbox LIVE Arcade. The prologue to the highly-anticipated Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, launched last week as a unique piece of downloadable content exclusively for Xbox LIVE Arcade. A standalone title that helps bridge the gap between the original Dead Rising and the soon-to-be-released Dead Rising 2, it allows fans a taste of the new Dead Rising world on Xbox 360.
The unique prologue experience gives gamers a glimpse of what’s to come in Dead Rising 2 as it includes new combo weapons; your first look at survivors and a psycho; an introduction to new protagonist, Chuck Greene and his daughter Katey and a system that allows you to carry your character attributes collected in Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO into the main game.
Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO is now available exclusively to download on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Dead Rising 2 will launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on September 28, 2010.
If you haven’t played Case Zero yet, it really is a better version than the original game. The controls are tighter, the arbitrary deadline actually means something, and you can strap two chainsaws onto a paddle to make a paddlesaw. Epic win.
