Dead Rising star Frank West is finally coming to the PlayStation 3 after five years of Xbox 360 exclusivity Ė and Off the Record developer Capcom Vancouver predicts Sony fans will welcome him with open arms.
Capcom will release a "fan's version" of zombie kill-em-up Dead Rising 2 this autumn as a full retail disc release.

It presents a what if? scenario that re-imagines the Fortune City outbreak as if West experienced it.
Did you play zombie kill-em-up Dead Rising 2? If so, Capcom wants to know what you thought of it.
Frank it up.
Dead Rising 2ís playable prologue, Case Zero, was released at the end of August for 400 Microsoft Points, selling half a million copies by the end of September. Just four months later, its epilogue, Case West, arrives exclusively on 360 for double that cost. Austerity be damned: thatís the price of progress, folks.
Iím only half-joking Ė because, while at roughly three hours for a single playthrough, Case West may only be the same size as Zero, itís also a step forward for the series; an add-on whose improvements to the zombie-splatting formula might well have bumped up its predecessorís Metacritic rating a few notches.
It starts with a surprise Ė at least for those who got the Ďbestí ending for Dead Rising 2, as evidently Capcom is treating that gameís Ending A (rather than the proper Overtime denouement) as canon. Professional Thomas Jane impersonator Chuck Greene is rescued from a future of moaning, shuffling and unusually protein-heavy dietary requirements by original protagonist Frank West, and the two set out to infiltrate a facility belonging to evil pharmaceutical nutjobs Umbrell- sorry, Phenotrans.
Let's be Frank.
The next Dead Rising 2 expansion, Case West, will be available from 27th December, publisher Capcom has announced.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero has been a resounding success, breaking Xbox Live Arcade sales records - and all along it was just half of a two-part Capcom experiment.
Capcom easily won the unofficial award for the publisher of the show in Tokyo this year. Not content to sit back and watch people come flooding in to see Monster Hunter Portable 3rd - which they did, of course, in their thousands - the publisher made three major new announcements. At Capcom's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, Keiji Inafune told the world that as long as Capcom's around, the Japanese games industry is alive and kicking.
Break out the Zombrex, Frank West is back.
A glimpse of the zombified future.
