Dead Rising 2 Rising Higher On 360?
Everyone was happy to hear that Dead Rising 2 is coming to the PS3 as well as the Xbox 360. In one of Capcom’s latest podcasts, Keiji Inafune the series producer revealed some tid bits that seem to go against Capcom’s commitment to being multiplatform.
“Please expect new Dead Rising and Lost Planet titles. While they will be on multiple platforms, we are thinking about having the 360 version play out differently,” – Keiji Inafune
It would be naive to say we have no idea why this is happening. Is this double payback for all the great sales Dead Rising had on the Xbox 360 or is Microsoft throwing money at publishers again to secure exclusive content?
Perhaps each platform will get platform specific bonuses, but that is not how the producer describes it. You can interpret many things from “play out differently”. I think it’s high time publishers and developers started really taking advantage of the Blu-Ray and start offering up some real bonuses for PS3.
