Here's What Passes For A Dead Rising 2 Special Edition In North America

Exclusive to North America, the Dead Rising 2 Zombrex edition promises to delve deeper into the story of Dead Rising, with the Xbox 360 version containing the 83-minute Zombrex Dead Rising Sun film. That's nice, where's our action figure?

It might not contain an undead tourist like the European special edition, but the North American exclusive Zombrex edition of Dead Rising 2 is actually rather nice. The collection delves deeper into the fiction behind the game, with a focus on Zombrex, an extremely expensive zombification prevention drug - the only cure for an undead infection.

What does $US79.99 buy PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players?

Packed inside the two-disc steelbook case is the game, of course, a Zombrex syringe pen, prescription notepad, prospectus sales brochure, safety card, and a 48-page hardback Dead Rising 2 art book.

PlayStation 3 owners will also enjoy a Blu-Ray disc featuring a high definition making-of featurette, along with a voucher for a downloadable XMB theme.

Xbox 360 owners will score the featurette on a regular DVD, along with the 83-minute Zombrex Dead Rising Sun movie, directed by Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune.

And that's $US80 worth of North American Dead Rising 2 special edition! Who's buying?

    What?!

    That special edition is way better than the Australian one!

    JB HI-FI have listed the Dead Rising CE at $99 BUX !!
    Way cheaper than Game and EB.
    I don't see why I should pay an extra 40-50 bux more just to get an extra figurine...although a ninja figurine, would be kinda cool...but still.

    $99 is actually for the standard edition there's a little boxout saying the CE is $169

      F&%$ ur right !
      In my giddy squeels of exscitement I totally missed that boxout (despite it being mere cm's away from original price)damn...that's just crap then...
