Why would you buy the game when you have no immediate plans of buying the console?


Exclusive Day One bullshit edition that only serves to tease diehard fans of the franchise - like me - into preordering the damn thing.

I feel your pain... >_<


I know I'm going to love the game. It's just...the "exclusive" goodies are too great to let them pass, in case they turn out to be true "day one exclusives".

And as I said before, I get to have a cool Dead Rising T-Shirt. So it's not that bad :P

I have my Wii U, 3DS and PC. I don't need an inferior "pc" next to my gaming one.....

EDIT: Also, no exclusive interested me so far. .

Knowing capcom, its probably best you wait. GOTY edition with is all but inevitable :P

 

There has never been a GOTY edition in any Dead Rising game. In fact, if we ignore Off The Record, I'd say Dead Rising is one of Capcom's least milked franchises. (Two had microtransactions though).

Maybe the "exclusive" content end up in sale after months, which is possible. But I'm also getting a cool T-Shirt (for me), and that's purely exclusive for the Day One edition.

Hmm.. isn't DR 2:Off the Record essentially the GOTY version of the game? It has a different protagonist as MC, but all the DLC's from the vanilla version are on there.

But fair enough, I guess. Pre order/collectors goodies are always nice incentives to have for early adopters.



Gonna wait a few months just in case there are any teething problems. Also no RPGS at launch

Nope, for a few reasons:

1. My holiday gadget budget is going towards a new iPhone.

2. Recently bought a PS3, plenty of cheap games to catch up on there.

3. No compelling exclusive content yet for PS4 or XBone.

well, i will get a ps4 but i want to resell it (yes i know not nice and bla). if the prices won't really increase i will keep it for myself instead of purchasing one next year for me but there is not much on launch or the months after which i really need a next gen console for and since i still have so much to play on pc i don't even "need" one if there would be a few exclusive games i really want. forza is the only must have for me but also no reason to buy an xbox one at launch.

it's the first gen where i don't really plan to buy a next gen console at launch for me since i have still so much other stuff to play.

Nope. Off the Record was essentially the same game with 75% of the same map as in Dead Rising 2 but with a different main character. It even had the same endings. (The bastards made a crazy plot twist that wasn't present in Dead Rising 2, and it was worth it just for that alone, because it actually teased fans who thought the game was exactly the same as DR2 xD). So this is the point on which Capcom started milking the series.

 

Off the Record had even different microtransactions than DR2 so that you had to buy them AGAIN.

 

The DLC's are a especial kind of DLC (which is pretty rare in Capcom) and they are standalone expansions: Case Zero and Case West. Both at five dollars each one, and both had awesome value for fans (It wasn't anything like that content in disc locked bullshit).



Have a Wii U... Nintendo is all I need

Hoping to. If not it's because I haven't had any more money to my name than $8.59 in a long time, and I don't expect to better off financially any time in the future.



Around the Network
I have my sights on a Steam Machine instead or maybe converting my Windows PC to Steam OS. We will see what the future holds... I may change my mind as more games are released. But for now, its Wii U games this holiday.
