$90 Dead Rising 2: High Stakes edition ups the ante

Super premium edition of Capcom's zombie game packs in poker set, game map, DLC token; exclusive to publishers' online store.


While Call of Duty: Black Ops, Halo: Reach, and Crysis 2 all have $150 premium bundles arriving this holiday, Capcom is charging fans just $90 to walk away with the top-tier limited version of its forthcoming zombie game, Dead Rising 2.

Capcom today announced the Dead Rising 2: High Stakes edition. Currently available for preorder exclusively at the Capcom online store, the $90 bundle for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 comes with a copy of the game and a two-deck, 100-chip poker set.

Additionally, the set includes a Fortune City visitor map and a Terror is Reality XVII admission ticket good for the Psycho costume and skills. Further, one lucky buyer will find a ticket for a six-foot "Burt the Zombie" replica statue inside the package.

While the High Stakes edition is available only through its publisher's store, those looking to pick up a limited-edition bundle at retail also have an option. An $80 Dead Rising 2 Zombrex edition is currently available for preorder at GameStop and Amazon. The Xbox 360 collector's edition packs in the game, as well as a 24-minute making-of featurette, an art book, various Zombrex items, the 83-minute Zombrex Dead Rising Sun film (Xbox 360), and XMB dynamic theme (PS3).

Unlike its predecessor, Dead Rising 2 will ship for all major consoles. It was originally pegged to be released on August 31 but was later pushed to September 28.

Fans won't need to wait until that date to play the game, however. Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, a downloadable prequel to the events of Dead Rising 2, is due out exclusively on Xbox Live on August 31 priced at $5, or 400 Microsoft points.
