The Xbox One is a sleek machine looking to replace your current-gen console, your DVD player, your CD sound system and maybe even your set top box. And you know what? It might just do it.
Just north of the bars and strip clubs of Kings Cross in Sydney, Microsoft held an exclusive hands-on preview of the Xbox One to showcase upcoming titles ahead of Australia’s 22 November launch date. I got to put my hands on the trigger-rumbling controller and dance about in front of the Kinect 2.0 camera with titles like Forza 5 and Kinect Sports Rivals but before we get into that, let’s talk about Dead Rising.
Capcom were there to show off Dead Rising 3 – a game that developers have been hard at work on for three years re-writing the game’s engine specifically for the Xbox One hardware. Dead Rising 3 is the first installment of the zombie survival horror series to feature an open-world environment, larger than that of Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 put together.
