Dead Rising 2: Case 0 Shambles Past LIVE Records

Developer Capcom is overjoyed today as they announced that their Xbox LIVE exclusive game-let prologue for Dead Rising 2- Case 0 -has broken all records for LIVE downloads, thus proving the old adage that quality counts.

For what it's worth I have yet to even fire my DLC'd copy up but the game looks great. I'm thinking it must say something that I downloaded a game that I knew I wouldn't have time to actually play and probably won't until just before DR2 drops at the end of the month.

Take a victory lap Capcom, the rest of you might as well jump for the pressy-

Capcom is happy to announce that its recently released downloadable title, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, has broken all records on Xbox LIVE with the best week one unit sales in the history of all content distributed through Xbox LIVE Arcade. The prologue to the highly-anticipated Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, launched last week as a unique piece of downloadable content exclusively for Xbox LIVE Arcade. A standalone title that helps bridge the gap between the original Dead Rising and the soon-to-be-released Dead Rising 2, it allows fans a taste of the new Dead Rising world on Xbox 360. 
The unique prologue experience gives gamers a glimpse of what’s to come in Dead Rising 2 as it includes new combo weapons; your first look at survivors and a psycho; an introduction to new protagonist, Chuck Greene and his daughter Katey and a system that allows you to carry your character attributes collected in Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO into the main game. 
Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO is now available exclusively to download on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Dead Rising 2 will launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on September 28, 2010. For the latest assets and information, check out the Capcom press center at  For more information and to check out the latest recap of editorial reviews on Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, see the full story at Capcom Unity at
