Dead Rising Headed To PlayStation 3?

Early in this generation, Capcom was behind the Xbox 360 100%. They issued several high-profile exclusives for Microsoft's system, including Dead Rising and Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. However, once the PlayStation 3 got going, Capcom decided to bring over the latter, and Devil May Cry 4 launched simultaneously for the PS3 and 360. Furthermore, Resident Evil 5 should also receive a simultaneous worldwide release for both systems.

So shouldn't it stand to reason that Dead Rising should eventually come to the PS3 as well? It may be too late for the original, but if Capcom is planning a sequel - and we believe they are - than it would make perfect sense for Dead Rising 2 to be on Sony's platform. On top of which, Capcom's John Diamonon make a comment over at the official PlayStation blog that garnered plenty of attention: "You haven't seen the last of Dead Rising." A Wii version is coming, so maybe the original for the PS3 isn't out of the question, although we'd almost prefer the sequel at this point. With just about every third-party developer taking a multiplatform approach these days, we'd actually find it extremely curious if some form of Dead Rising didn't appear for the PS3.

Hopefully, we'll get an official confirmation on this in due time, but we'll be happy with speculation for now. We could always use a crazy zombie-slashin' game, with even more of an all-out action flavor than RE. Those of you who played the original know what I'm talking about.

Well if a Wii versions coming, surely they'll release it on the PS3. Dead Rising is the XBOX 360's best title in my opinion. like Bioshock, ill welcome a PS3 release.

BUT! If they do there needs to be a different saving system, it was awful on the XBOX 360 version.

Dead Rising was pretty much the first good title on the 360. It'd be a great addition to have on the PS3

These devs only supported the 360 first because it was the only next-gen console out there in the first year. Now devs are seeing encouraging sales of the PS3 and I imagine they have all made prediction of the world wide sales for PS3 and 360, placing the PS3 ahead of 360 in 2009, possibly the end of 2008? They are bound to support the PS3 much more now and the tide wil turn when 3rd party devs will make the PS3 the lead platform, which we are already seeing evidence for. Who knows maybe more 3rd party will make exclusive games for PS3 like in the PS2 days?
