Capcom Goes All-In with the Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition


As if the Zombrex Edition wasn’t over-the-top enough, Capcom has gone and outdone itself with the Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition. This new limited edition is available for pre-order exclusively at the Capcom Online Store, and, priced at $90, comes with the following bonus items:

* Dead Rising 2 Game (Xbox 360 or PS3)

* Poker set in a black high-impact case sporting the Fortune City logo and including:
– 100 poker chips- 4 different colors featuring the Fortune City logo
– 2 decks of ‘blood-stained’ custom playing cards featuring character art
– 5 green dice
– 1 ‘blood-stained’ dealer chip

* Fortune City Visitor Map featuring the game map and ads for Fortune City locations and attractions

* Terror is Reality XVII admission ticket with redemption code for the unique Psycho costume and skills downloadable content

* One Dead Rising 2 High Stakes Edition will contain the ‘Golden’ Terror Is Reality XVII admission ticket, which is redeemable for Burt the Zombie, a 6’ Dead Rising 2 zombie replica

Now THAT is a special edition. I’d take a functional poker set over a pack of pens, notepads and other useless collectibles any day of the week. Shit, the case of poker chips I got years back with that poker game Stacked is still one of the nicest collectibles I’ve ever received with a game — and this poker set is even better!
