Dead Rising 4

I do kinda want a power suit for Christmas.

When Dead Rising 4 was announced during the Microsoft E3 show, it was presented like it was an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive. Well now that the snow has settled, it seems like we should add the word ‘timed’ to that exclusivity. In a statement issued to GameSpot, Microsoft clarified that DR4 would come to Steam 90 days after the December 6th Xbox One/Win 10 release. It will be another 12 months until Santa sticks this game down the PS4’s stocking. These exclusivity deals have been difficult to figure out on good days as was the case with Rise of the Tomb Raider last year.

We’ll be sure to update you if and when Sony announces a release date for Dead Rising 4 on the PlayStation. I guess Christmas 2017 seems like a good bet with the whole setting of the game and everything.

At least Frank is taking all this exclusivity stuff in stride.

    A year? Oof. I hated that about the last Tomb Raider. Btw, has there any news when that is finally coming out on PS4?

    • No. Unfortunately Sony hasn’t announced anything about the new Tomb Raider coming to PS4 yet even though I think the exclusivity period has passed. It seems crazy not to port it over considering how popular it was.

      That would be crazy. It sucks, though I guess I could play it on 360. I haven’t decided on an Xbox One just yet
