I am really excited about this game, it looks like a lot of fun. The zombies in the first games to me weren't really THAT menacing, just more like zone fodder to mess with, these look to be a bit more dangerous (still fodder) and yet still allowing me the ability to do something silly and stupid in the world (hopefully with little or no load times). Personally as a franchise fan it looks to be more of what I like, and being on a more powerful platform delivering a larger fantastic open world is what I believe gamers want.

This game is a waste of time and money.

Totally looks doable on the PS3 and 360 as well, all they need to work on is fixing the game mechanics to be compatible and toning down the graphics for the current gens. Profit is something to look forward to right?!

Game looks better and better every time I see it. I don't see the weakness in this console that everyone claims it has. Can't wait to play it. :)

This is the only game that looks fun in the launch to me other than Knack and Lego Marvel Super Heroes.

I honestly don't see a difference in graphics between this and any PS3 game released in the last year. Sorry.

I won't go out and buy a Xbox because of this game but it does look fun. Too bad money rules when it comes to games that at one time were on Pc,Sony and Microsoft. I can understand Gears of War or Halo but Dead Rising snubbing there fan base stinks of greed.

I can't wait to get this on launch day. Since Watch Dogs dumped out, this is the game I'm most looking forward to. 

I'm glad that they got rid of most of the silly, campy humor shit. Imo, it was too stupid, like Saints Rows 2-4, that it just came off as bad taste. The zombie apocalypse deserves a serious tone. Huge props for comin through on that Capcom. The time factor also drove me crazy in the other games. I hated that I couldn't explore much because of the clock counting down hanging over your head. Why design a big and detailed environment if you don't have time to explore it? So I'm happy there's no mandatory clock. Also, the controls were doo-doo. The characters were jerky to control and it was very tough to shoot accurately in a fast paced boss battle. So hopefully they fixed that problem. 

This looks like a proper zombie game the likes of which we console gamers have never seen before. THIS is what The Walking Dead game should've been like!

I don't want to buy the Xbox One just to play this game, it's more like a matter of principle to me not to support Microsoft anymore. And besides that I don't think I can afford buying a next gen system anyway. Dead Rising is one of the few franchises I care about. This is going to hurt.

I feel like the Dead Rising series could really benefit from some ragdoll physics.

This looks great. I'm getting a PS4 first but if this never comes to PS4 I'll definitely play it on X1 when I get one.

It's a damn shame this is exclusive to the Xbox One.  I've always been a fan of the series and was looking forward to another game.  As much as I'd like to play this, there is no way in hell I'm buying a Xbox One (at least not for a few years).  Let's hope they release it on PC at some point.

All in the glorious ultra high res 720p upscaled to 1080p.  Welcome to next gen!?

This game would look better on the more powerful PS4.

Damn the game looks awesome. Good thing they made two mode one with timers and one without so no one is left behind. I'll probably play non-timeout open mode first.

Also I think anybody should worry when 30 minute vids like this get put out for a game. Usually it means they are a little worried and are trying to really sell it.

Am I the only one who feels in 1-2 years this will just come on the PS4 anyway.

@graym4tt3r The beauty of the world is that you don't have to play it. You are entitled to your opinion whether you like the game or not but you really should learn to keep negative comments with NO point to yourself. Simply because, as you point out and describe this game as a waste of time, you waste peoples time who might think that a comment is worth a read, even if its a one line junk comment with no real value.

@graym4tt3r Well it's a good thing you haven't spent any money on it nor any time, because the game isn't even out yet.

But at least you have your time machine which seems to be working just fine.

@Zepthire95 I share the same feeling.

I am getting a ps4... if I ever get an xbox one, I will definitely buy this... otherwise I will only play it if it comes to ps4.

@niknokseyer Your off by a month. See what happens when you get too excited?  ;^)

@aci808 this game is a timed exclusive and will surely be released on PS4, remember Mass Effect how it was supposed to be Xbox exclusive....few years later and PS3 version had more features than original game.

@aci808  All PS4 and X1 games would look better still on the even more powerful Steambox.  So......  =p

@aci808 And your face would look better on a zombie.

@imrangr1 The non-timer mode is the main game mode. Nightmare mode is with the timer. I'll be playing it without the clock myself. Such a huge and incredibly detailed city and you'd miss out on being able to explore it with the timer.

@punisher1 Gamespot interviewed the devs for the entire length of the video. Gamespot put it out and made it 30 mins., not Capcom.

@punisher1 They do this for a lot of games. Assassins Creed IV had a lot of videos like this. I don't think they were worried about that game.

@Karmazyn @aci808 A few years later and nobody will care. This isn't a timed exclusive either. Microsoft started a new philosophy with the 360... instead of having internal studios make games, they just sign exclusivity deals with 3rd parties. Everybody talked shit that Titan Fall would be a timed exclusive and they just ate their words.

@Karmazyn @aci808 Unlike those games, DR3 is actually developed by Microsoft Studios and not Capcom.  So it isn't a Timed exclusive and even if it was, MS would simply be making money off it since this one is actually their game

@PosiTVEMinD355 Are you an idiot? Did you even watch the video above?? Its being developed at Capcom Vancouver and published by MS. smh...
