    In a bit of interesting game news not coming out of E3, it seems the new issue of Famitsu has pages detailing Capcom's Dead Rising coming out for Wii. From what little is known at this point this isn't a new version of the series just for Wii, but a port of the 360 version.

    Well it's not the first time Capcom has ported down an "exclusive" title to a less powerful system then the original. Interested in seeing how this goes.

    Dead Rising: Dead Rising...For The Wii!

    Don't you know! It's impossible! Nintendo can't possibly have Dead Rising! It's and HD Game! the Wii is not powerfull enough to run a calculator!
    </sarcasm>

    Seriously... Glad to see it even if I do have the 360 version.

    And for those of you who try to say the Wii can't have 100 or so characters on screen at once.. I'd like to point out the Cube did it.. Three Times. The Mario 128 Demo. Pikman 1 and 2.

    Mario 128 was a globe on a white background.

    Pikmin are hardly as detailed as Frank, survivors, and a fifty five thousand zombies hungry for brains.

    If you think it's gonna do similar numbers you're most likely kidding yourself.

    Lots.

    Driving through the zombies in the parking garage = insane. Wall to wall zombies in every direction.

    You can get the same core gameplay using a lot less zombies, clever uses of environment and sleight of hand, but you aren't gonna get "Holy shit that's a lotta zombies" like you did on the 360.

    53,594 to be exact.

    Good news :
    Similar to RE5 this version has a coop feature.

    Bad News:
    Unfortunately the second player is relegated to the role of Otis and all you get to do is call Frank. Your score is awarded based on how many times you chastise Frank for not paying attention to you merely because zombies are trying to devour his flesh.

    If at any point in the conversation Frank disconnects, your OCD requires you to start your tale from the beginning.

    (The above statements are probably just my imagination at work. Probably...)

    Capcom just shot themselves in the foot.

    I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get ri d of that shame is repentance.

    What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase Dead Rising for either system, nor will they purchase any of Capcom's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Capcom has alienated an entire market with this move.

    Capcom, publicly apologize and cancel Dead Rising for Wii or you can kiss your business goodbye.

    I will admit it took me a moment to reconize that as a joke.


    Sad thing is I've heard people say such things seriously so many times...
