With the news from the Tokyo Game Show that Xbox 360 owners would be receiving a second helping of exclusive downloadable content, us PlayStation 3 owners couldn’t help but feel neglected by Capcom’s apparent favouritism.
But speaking with Eurogamer, co-producer on Dead Rising 2 Shinsaku Ohara tried to assure PS3 owners that this isn’t a case of Capcom alienating their Sony fanbase.
“I think [Keiji] Inafune said that we’re sorry that it seems like you’re getting a little bit less of the Dead Rising 2 universe, but you’ll still be able to enjoy the full game. You’ll just miss a little bit of extra. We haven’t completely alienated PS3 gamers because Dead Rising 2 is a standalone boxed product. At the beginning we didn’t know that this new IP would be a success, but the fans on the console really assisted in making it into one. So it’s like a present, something that we gave back to the original Dead Rising fans.”
Blue Castle games were also eager to assure fans that Dead Rising 2 would still be a complete game without the Case: Zero and Case: West add ons.
“The game was completely designed to be a self-contained and enjoyable experience, beginning to end, regardless of the prologue and the epilogue,”
Look for our Dead Rising 2 review soon.
