This game wouldn’t have the initials D.N. would it? :D

Tyrsis said:

May 7th, 9:06 am

Haha, a ten hour, un-paid day, and you might not even be in the commercial?

Funny enough, I bet people are clamoring for this.


May 7th, 9:07 am

Lunch at least?

I’m vegetarian so make sure you have Graaaaaaaains! available.

You should at least give away a 5 pack of games of choice to the participants.

I think I’d make a good zombine, too bad I live 3,120 miles away.

Dead Nation for the win?

I’m assuming I would have to live in the San Francisco area. You could have had a great zombie.

KwietStorm said:

Is Dead Nation finally coming soon?

Gunwing said:

May 7th, 9:25 am

Please may it be a PS3 only game! We need more Exclusive games! What we got this year was great! Now finish it up with Resistance 3, A new Zombie horror game, and last but not least some more IPs!

Even though it’s a non-paid opportunity, it’s a pretty cool opportunity to be in a game trailer and have your zombied-out face seen by millions haha.

Would lunch be provided? Coz parking ain’t cheap & MUNI prices are climbing these days… and 10 hours straight will make me hungryyyyy like a zombie.

What about my first born child while you’re at it! LoL! Cool opportunity but not in my neighborhood here in lil old Rhode Island. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out though! :)

Shin-Ra said:

May 7th, 10:48 am

The only thing more exciting than Dead Nation would be the next game from Japan Studio’s Siren team.

djpenny1 said:

May 7th, 10:54 am

i hope its like dead rising or L4D

Bilouze said:

May 7th, 11:23 am

I sure hope this won’t be a humoristic game…

Will any zombies be harmed during the making of this trailer? Zombies have rights, too!

bigdaddykraven said:

May 7th, 1:08 pm

@JetSetFuture The right to have their head blown off with a sawed-off shotty :)

crazyredhead1432 said:

May 7th, 1:25 pm

Please tell me it’s a full-fledged, $60, blue-ray bad ass zombie game!

nem0905 said:

May 7th, 1:46 pm

omg id LOVE to do this :/ to bad they arent taking care of ur way there, if they did ID SOOO LOOOOOVE doing this!!! WHO CARES BOUT THE MONEY!!!!!!! ITS A GAME TRAILER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD~~~!!! T____T damn me for not being able to go :/

ynp7 said:

May 7th, 2:05 pm

Wait, you’re not even going to hook up your extras with a copy of the game? Cheap, cheap, cheap.

LouVelvet said:

May 7th, 2:28 pm

This is a pretty smart way to get a bunch of free labor from fanatic gamers who don’t know any better. Extras on sets are usually paid around $100 a day — you’re definitely going to save a bunch of money on the making of this trailer. I feel a little sorry for the suckers who actually do it though.

Moti_D said:

May 7th, 2:43 pm

Just to clarify – Is this a new, disc based game or “Dead Nation” for PSN?

    I can’t divulge that information just yet, Moti_D. You’ll have to keep your eyes on the blog to find out.

Cool but too bad I don’t live in San Fransico.


May 7th, 2:57 pm


Look up the definition of ‘fan’

ClearClover said:

May 7th, 3:05 pm

I hope it’s a full retail game and not a PSN release.

Also I hope it’s a serious game, not humoristic, it can have it’s fair share of comic relief but please let it be actually scary and with a dark atmosphere, something like RE: Outbreak but much better.

But right now, all I’d like to know is, is it a full retail game or a PSN game?

Dude, if this is a full retail game then I’m all for it.
But if its a PSN title, I’m guessing its Dead Nation, then I’ll be disappointed just because it’ll be top down shooter like recent zombie games on PSN such as burn, zombie, burn or Zombie Apocalypse.

letherclad said:

Crap, I live on the east coast.

I’m excited to see what the trailer is for though…

ClearClover said:

May 7th, 5:19 pm


I agree, if it’s a retail game, I’ll more than likely get it. If it’s a PSN game, I’m sorry but I’ll probably pass on it.

Thats cool.Playstation need more zombie games.

wikichu said:

I have a feeling this is going to be a commercial for Dead Rising 2. As it’s going to be emphasised on the PS3 more so than the Xbox 360. I mean let’s face it Microsoft whored the crap out of FFXIII for the 360. Dead Rising 2 comes out this year, so it’s only natural that it’s the first time DR will appear on a Sony platform. I’m going to sit on this and make DR2 my prediction.

DeforMAKulizer said:

Dare i say… Is this game Until Dawn?
I remember i read your trademark on a game that requires a community or a big network, and from the name “Until Dawn” i got a vibe that its a zombie game… I sure hope!!
