The downloadable PlayStation 3 game Dead Nation tracks every PlayStation-enabled nation's statistics for the feat of slaying virtual zombies. The US now trails Finland somehow despite killing many more zombies. Can you guess which country the game's developers live in?
The video I captured from my PlayStation 3 this morning shows the new rankings. I last checked the rankings 19 days ago. Back then, Dead Nation wasn't even officially out in Europe. Now it is, and now I see the US killing some 246 million zombies to Finland's 15 million.
What gives? The head of Housemarque, the team that developed this fun game (I liked it), says all will be explained in an upcoming post on the PlayStation blog. For now, he can tell us that a system is being used that prevents big countries from having an unfair advantage.
What could the real system be? Man, America never gets to win at anything!
