Dead Rising and Lost Planet Almost Never Came to Be

In a recent lecture at a Kyoto University, former Capcom studio head and game design legend Keiji Inafune revealed just how close we came to missing out on the Dead Rising and Lost Planet franchises.  Apparently, Capcom's sequel-itis wasn't due to a lack of creativity, it had to do with banking on a sure thing.  Everyone knows we are actually on the 14th or 15th installment of Street Fighter.  Resident Evil has been around forever, and no mortal knows how many Mega Man's exist.  Dead Rising and Lost Planet were rejected outright in the prototype stage.  One would assume that if Inafune would have titled the games "Dead Rising X4" or "Lost Planet Alpha 3: The New Challengers" they would have been green-lit for a dozen games each.

Brink Launch Trailer and PS3 Info

Brink is out today on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and we've got the launch trailer to prove it.  If you've picked the game up on the PlayStation 3 you might be feeling a bit lonely, mostly because, the PlayStation Network is still down.  Eurogamer asked Bethesda about the game's launch, to which they responded, there was no plans to delay the PS3 version.  While Brink is an online multiplayer game at its core - it can still function as a single player title thanks to the support of bots.
