9 Out of 10 Zombies Prefer the Wii
As I noted last November, the Wii is the console of choice for zombie games. Now it will be getting yet another: Dead Rising.

After the ugly Lost Planet port and no Dead Rising for the PS3, I feel a bit burned by Capcom. On the other hand, I can now kill about a dozen zombie birds with one stone:
  • Resident Evil 4
  • Umbrella Chronicles
  • House of the Dead 2 & 3
  • Dead Rising
  • My older son's undying desire to play Mario Kart, Smash Bros., and/or Super Mario Galaxy.
I guess I'll just start saving my pennies now and plan for a Wii this fall sometime.

Don't forget Fatal Frame 4 is a Wii exclusive (much to my chagrin.) While not zombies, it is horror.

I'm still not sold on the Wii as anything other than a gimmick.

While I do see the potential in the Wii, and even argue it's been lived up to in places (many of them being Wii Sports), Wii Dead Rising looks like it's been basically ruined in the process of porting. Not only does it have a reduced zombie count (which would be understandable), but they've even abandoned the real-time nature of the game. Sigh.
