Dead Rising: Watchtower comes to Xbox a week early

Despite it being on Sony's streaming service Crackle.

Dead Rising: Watchtower, the live-action film based on Capcom's popular open-world zombie series, is coming to Xbox consoles a week early, Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has announced.

Anyone with the Crackle app will be able to start watching the movie on 20th March. Those without a Microsoft console will have to wait until 27th March.

It's an odd exclusive given that Crackle is Sony Pictures Television's streaming service, but there you have it. Dead Rising: Watchtower stars funnyman Rob Riggle along with Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Dennis Haysbert, Keegan Connor and Virginia Madsen, who was once nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Sideways.
