Downtown Vancouver overrun by zombies

      Has the apocalypse begun? 

      Moments ago in downtown Vancouver, zombies flooded the streets near the giant Xbox One replica at the corner of Nelson and Seymour streets.

      Thankfully, citizens armed with foam weapons immediately began battling the undead creatures. Not unlike what video gamers will be doing when they play Dead Rising 3.

      The game, developed at Capcom Vancouver, is exclusive to the Xbox One and will be available when the new system releases on November 22. 

      The “dead rising” experience is part of the publicity campaign for the Xbox One from Microsoft and is an attempt to re-create the game in real life. 

      Now that the giant Xbox One has opened, fans will be able to get hands-on with Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct, and Ryse, which are playable on 14 Xbox One stations.

      You’ll also be able to get zombified by special effects makeup artists and get green screen photos taken with you holding custom weapons from Dead Rising 3. 

      The replica Xbox One will be in Vancouver for about another 12 hours before it gets packed up and departs for other locations in Canada.
