Hold Off The Zombie Horde Until Late September
Zombie killing fiends will have to wait until late September to play Dead Rising 2, as the game was delayed today by Capcom. No specific reason was mentioned other than Capcom stating, “We are happy to confirm today that Dead Rising 2 is set for release across North America on September 28th, 2010”.
It is undetermined whether or not this will affect the Xbox 360 downloadable prologue “Case Zero”.
Dead Rising 2 will be released on the PC, Xbox 360, and the PS3 on September 28th in North America and October 1st in Euroupe.
Red Faction Downloadable Game To Hit Before Armageddon
THQ’s VP of core games Danny Bilson said to expect a Red Faction Downloadable title due for the XBLA and PSN release 3-4 months before Armageddon hits store shelves in March.
There’s going to be a Red Faction Arcade game that ships about three or four months before Armageddon. “What’s interesting is that we will sell it to the fans, it will have content you can download that is TV show-related, it will build up to the new game and also we can use it to drive pre-orders, too; we can give codes and aspects of it, we can give the whole thing away.”
Bilson also says to expect the same treatment for other upcoming titles like Saints Row 2 and a couple of others.
Sony Planning To Release More PS2 HD Collections
With the popularity of the God Of War Collection, Sony has revealed that they are in fact looking into other PS2 titles to give an HD makeover. As we already know from E3, The Sly Collection is already in the works, and both Ico and the Shadow of the Colossus has been rumored for quite some time now for a possible release in Q1 of 2011.
It’s nice to see Sony working on HD versions for some of the classic games from the PS2 era, especially if you have a PS3 that’s not backward compatible.
