Dead Rising 2: High Stakes Edition is packed with swag, chance to win a life-size zombie

Feeling lucky? Then prepare yourself for the most roulette-balls-out version of Dead Rising 2, it really… drives home the setting. There’s no ambiguity here - the limited High Stakes Edition of the upcoming zombie massacre game is all poker and blood.

All this bling is only available if you pre-order through Capcom's official online store - the edition isn’t being sold anywhere else. So what all comes in this basket of goodies?

- 100 poker chips in four different colors, imprinted with the Fortune City logo
- Two decks of "blood-stained" playing cards
- Five green dice
- A "blood-stained" dealer button
- A Fortune City map
- A downloadable code for the "Psycho" DLC pack
- A black case with the Fortune City logo
- Of course, the Dead Rising 2 game

Where else are you gonna find a blood-stained dealer button? Use that for your next friendly poker game as a symbol for what happens if anyone tries to renege on their bet.

There's one more thing. One lucky customer will also receive a golden ticket in their bundle, which can be redeemed for a six-foot-tall zombie statue - Burt the Zombie.

So now the only decision you have is whether to buy the High Stakes Edition or the previously announced Zombrex Edition. The glitzy Vega-style bundle is priced at $90, a 50% premium over the standalone $60 game.

Capcom promises that all orders for the High Stakes Edition of Dead Rising 2 will be delivered on the day of the game's release, September 28. We shall await the story of the guy who ends up scaring the crap out of his roommates with Burt.

    I'm sensing a pattern here...Dead rising, Fallout, Red Dead Redemption, all have had poker-themed limited editions. Have gaming industries partnered up with casinos? What is going on!! I don't mind in the least, though. I love poker, so I'm not complaining. They make awesome, and useful, collectors items.

  • Kyffe - August 28, 2010 12:49 p.m.

    It looks way more interesting than the Zombrex edition, and besides, who wouldnt wanna have a six ft. zombie in their room?
  • UnoMikeo - August 28, 2010 10:52 a.m.

  • Onepersonwithnoopinion - August 28, 2010 1:37 a.m.

    Well it would give a good opportunity to hone my poker skills. Two games in one. I'll go with this pack.

  • ssj4raditz - August 27, 2010 11:22 p.m.

    I'm totally getting this edition. I want the chance to win Burt, and it looks far more appealing to me than the Zombrex Ed.
  • Cyberninja - August 27, 2010 11:02 p.m.

    i want to know what happens if the copy with the golden ticket is lost in the mail or no one redeems it.
  • batmanboy11 - August 27, 2010 11:02 p.m.

    I don;t want a zombie in my house...
