Capcom’s downloadable prequel Dead Rising 2: Case Zero now holds the Xbox Live record for best week one sales of any title ever released on Microsoft’s digital platform.
No specific figures have been released, but Gamasutra reported yesterday that over 300,000 players have posted scores on the game’s official leaderboards just in its first week of release. Solid.
The 400 Microsoft Point ($5) title follows Dead Rising 2 star Chuck Greene and his daughter, Katey, as they fight their way through the infected town of Still Creek, bridging the gap between the original Dead Rising and the upcoming Dead Rising 2. Like the scores of people who've downloaded the game so far, we had a blast with it. Check out our review for more on why you might like it too.
How many of you have downloaded Case Zero? Do you think you’ll pick up Dead Rising 2 because of it, or do you think you’ll stick with the downloadable title for a while?
