The original Dead Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive, which made sense as the PlayStation 3 hadn't even launched yet. However, Capcom have continued to support the Xbox 360 with exclusive content despite Dead Rising 2 being multiplatform.
Both Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 2: Case West are exclusive to the Xbox 360 as downloadable titles, but Capcom has denied that they are completely alienating PS3 gamers by doing this.
"I think Inafune [Keiji, head of global R&D] said that we're sorry that it seems like you're getting a little bit less of the Dead Rising 2 universe, but you'll still be able to enjoy the full game," said co-producer Shinsaku Ohara when speaking to Eurogamer.
"You'll just miss a little bit of extra. We haven't completely alienated PS3 gamers because Dead Rising 2 is a standalone boxed product," he added.
When Dead Rising 2: Case Zero launched, it shattered Xbox Live records for sales.
