PlayStation Network Flash Sale Brings Discounts On AAA Titles

Posted on April 14, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sony has surprised fans with an Easter Weekend flash sale across all three platforms on the PlayStation Network. Several AAA tittles including multiple collections of remastered games are discounted up to 80%. If you missed out on playing the Uncharted Collection, the Prototype remasters or last years BioShock collection then you can snag them up while they’re all heavily discounted. If you are more of a portable fan there are far less deals that seem appealing, at least to me – the three exceptions being Crypt of the Necro-Dancer, Geometry Wars 3 and Shiren The Wanderer.

Over 100+ items have been discounted so I neglected to list them all in this post. Below are the deals that stood out to me but you can always wade through the multiple pages over on the PlayStation store.

Original Dead Rising Heading To PC / PS4 / Xbox, Off The Record To PS4 + Xbox One

Posted on July 18, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Dead Rising 1

Great news for photo journalists who happen to have a knack for taking selfies with the undead, Capcom has announced that the original Dead Rising will be slashing its way onto Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. Alongside the release of the original Capcom will also bring Dead Rising 2 and it’s spin-off Dead Rising 2: Off The Record to PS4 and Xbox One as well.

Here is a brief statement that Capcom issued to Eurogamer about the upcoming ports:

“Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4. We will have more news to share soon.”

All of these announcements were made ahead of the upcoming Christmas release for Dead Rising 4, which for a full year will be an Xbox One + Windows 10 exclusive following its release. We got the chance to check out over six minutes of extended gameplay at E3 with a developer walkthrough. If you want to see what we saw, head on over to our video preview from last month.

The original Dead Rising was released for the Xbox 360 in the summer of 2006 and pretty much stayed an exclusive on that platform save for a down-scaled motion controlled port released for the Wii in February 2009.


Dead Rising 2 marked a shift in development from an in-house Japanese Capcom team to the Vancouver, BC based Capcom Vancouver (formally Blue Castle Games) in 2010. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record a retelling of the events of Dead Rising 2 but staring Frank West from the original title was released a year later on PS3/360 and PC. Dead Rising 3 was an Xbox One / PC exclusive and never made the jump to the PlayStation 4.

It sounds like Capcom has some big plans for its undead series in 2016. Speaking of the undead, this year also marked the release of several ports of Resident Evil games on Xbox One and PS4 a head of the surprise reveal of Resident Evil 7.


Dead Rising 3’s Launch Trailer

Posted on November 19, 2013 by Joshua Rust

What better way to kick on the Xbox One system release than to get a look at one the launch trailers for the exclusive Dead Rising 3?  For continuum junkies, this game takes place almost 12 years after the events in Dead Rising 2. New added features is a “simpler” mode that won’t rush people into completing missions within a certain time frame (but don’t worry, there is a Nightmare mode for hardcore gamers that is just like the previous two sequels).

Other features include a complete open world where the are no loading times, if a user is implementing a second screen experience (through SmartGlass) they will find new interactive features throughout the game – for example, a government phone that can call in an airstrike, and though Kinect 2.0 you will be able to order your posse to attack the zombie hordes.

But, enough of that, if you want to see the launch trailer…continue after the jump!
