Zombie lovers rejoice! Dead Rising 2 is here! Now all I hope is that this one has readable text and a better save system that doesn’t leave you screwed if you save at the wrong time such as I did. Now onto the special editions!
Outbreak Edition – This looks to be a European or maybe just Australian special edition which includes the game (PAL Version), 12” Fully Articulated Zombie Figurine, Sports Fan Theme Pack (whatever that is), Tape It Or Die Catalogue (your very own guide to making household objects into zombie killing combo weapons), Dead Rising Sun (full length Zombie movie, set in the world of Dead Rising) and The making of Dead Rising 2. Seems like a pretty sweet collection, but not for the price. Not even close.
High Stakes Edition – This one is for the High Rollers out there, the big daddy of collectors editions! The High Stakes Edition is pretty damn sick looking and comes with the following: Dead Rising 2 game (of course), Poker Set in a black high-impact case sporting the Fortune City Logo, Fortune City Visitor Map, Terror Is Reality XVII admission ticket with redemption code for the unique ‘Psycho’ costume, and The chance at discovering the ‘Golden’ Terror Is Reality XVII admission ticket which only ONE of the DR2 High Stakes Edition will have this which is redeemable for a 6 inch figure. Why this doesn’t include the video like the AUS version is beyond me.
Zombrex Edition – Here is the regular collectors edition. Typical metal case but this has a few extras: DR2 game, steel case, Making of disc, Zombrex syringe pen (the coolest item in the set), Zombrex prescription notepad, Zombrex safety card, Zombrex sales brochure, XMB dynamic theme, and DR2 Hardcover art book. Pretty decent for the “low end” collectors edition.
And as a “bonus” item, I thought I would throw this one up. It is an auction for the jacket as seen on the main character in the game. This one is listed as a “Private Auction” for one person so I wouldn’t suggest bidding, but still a cool item to check out.
