I thought you were confused about a non-existent free demo as opposed to the just announced $5 Case 0 delay.

Perhaps you meant


Fundamental reading is hard when you're reading something that's written wrong. My bad.
So wait, Case Zero won't be released this week? Or will?

You sir are correct... reading is fundamental. Case in point from the article:

It won't be making that date in Japan.

They're checking with Capcom to see if it'll be delayed in the other regions.

But that's not what the article said. At least as it was posted here:

Xbox 360 exclusive download Dead Rising 2: Case 0 was slated for download release on August 31. It won't be making that date.

In an official statement, Capcom's Japanese headquarters has stated that the game is going to be delayed. The reason for the delay is elements were discovered in the trial version that are not appropriate for a free demo.

That's right, Kotaku added "in Japan" after I posted the article here.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

Oh. That makes more sense. Also the article is confusing because they keep refering to "the game" possibly being delayed without making it clear if they are referring to the downloadable demo Dead Rising 2 : Case 0 or the full retail game Dead Rising 2. I wouldn't refer to Case 0 as "the game", as it's more of a demo, but I think that was their intention here.

Hell yeah! (I can't believe I'm psyched to buy what is basically a demo).

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

Looks like Case Zero is free? I thought it was going to be 400points.

Nope. There are both trial and full versions. That link above was just the demo of the demo.

Re: Dead Rising 2: Vegas Zombies!

so, basically, if you liked dead rising, you'll like this. controls are still a bit awkward. the graphics are nothing to write home about. the combo things are cool, where you add weapons together, although i only got to try one (bat with nails).
