Dead Rising 2 movie, collector's edition coming next month

Capcom is doing its best to get gamers excited about the September due Dead Rising 2, announcing the debut of the full-length feature film Zombrex Dead Rising Sun on Xbox Live and the game's official website in August. When the game debuts in August, it will come with a bonus-filled "Zombrex Edition" that will retail for $80.

Above is a look at the PS3 version of the Dead Rising 2 Zombrex Edition. Both versions will include the game, a steelbook case, a syringe-styled pen, a 25-page prescription notepad, a small safety poster, a mock sales brochure for the zombie-fighting drug, and an hardback art book. The Xbox 360 version will include a second disc with an HD version of the Dead Rising feature film, entitled Zombrex Dead Rising Sun, as well as a making-of featurette for what we presume is the game, since it will stand alone on the PS3's second Blu-ray disc. To ease the pain of going film-free, PS3 owners will get a redemption code to download a Dead Rising-themed Cross Media Bar theme.

Gamers interested in checking out Zombrex Dead Rising Sun but unwilling to spend extra money will be able to download the film from various sources. The first three chapter of the movie will premiere on Xbox Live on August 4, with the additional five chapters coming out over the next three weeks of the month. The chapters will debut on the movie's official website a week after they premiere on Xbox Live. An image from Zombrex Dead Rising Sun is shown at the bottom of the article.

In addition to being the only console that will show Zombrex Dead Rising Sun, the Xbox 360 will also be the exclusive home of the Dead Rising 2 prologue, Case Zero. Which, if any version are you planning on getting? Will you buy the colle... er, "Zombrex" edition or go standard?

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
