That's the tits! Zombies eat brains, admire boobs

This is totally legit confirmation that while zombies love to eat brains and limbs, they prefer to admire boobs.

At least, according to the Dead Island: Riptide Collector's Edition.

The limited edition comes with a fairly busty severed torso in the remains of an American stars and stripes bikini.

The statue "would make a striking conversation piece on any discerning zombie gamer’s mantel" according to Deep Silver sales and marketing director Paul Nicholls.

As you would expect, it has created a shit-storm on Twitter, prompting an apology from publisher Deep Silver.

"We sincerely regret this choice," the company said. "We are collecting feedback continuously from the Dead Island community, as well as the international gaming community at large, for ongoing internal meetings with Deep Silver's entire international team today. For now, we want to reiterate to the community, fans and industry how deeply sorry we are, and that we are committed to making sure this will never happen again."

That's gotta be the most retarded collectors edition I have seen.
A headless, armless zombie chick? really? game must suck real hard if they need this sort of publicity. Game has avoid written all over it for me now.
Wouldn't be a problem if it was a buff, manly chest. Just sayin'.

I'm all for unique items in collectors editions but this thing is just too weird to have in any normal persons collection.
soo what's the issue here... duke nukem collectors came with a similar kind of statue.

It would be a problem, because there'd be less boobs.

EDIT: bewbs

Well it's just weird, be alright if it had a head and maybe one arm so basically a statue of the top half of a zombie but headless and armless? it's neither a person or a zombie but a statue of a corpse I guess, you don't see that as weird? and the devs would have known this and wanted the attention, probably to hide a crap game.

nothing wrong with admiring boobs!!
I don't understand the problem? It's weird and I don't think many people would want it in their collection but i don't get why it warrants an apology. So it sexualises zombie women ... it's not like they exist to be offended by it.

I just think it's creepy to mix gore with something sexual, but whatever.
I want it but then I saw "dead island" and thought nup. Bought the last collectors edition and it let me down :S
so this is why ive been seeing torso tweets today
the hell is wrong with people?! that thing would be the only reason i'd buy this game (im still not going to, DI was terrible)
when did bewbs become uncool? that's it, im leaving the internet
if it were a complete statue of a zombie would be a different story all together, this thing looks weird!
Yes Please [Derp], Just Dont tell da wife :'( its on its way ;)

The flat chested zombies are not happy about Chesty McBrainseater getting all the attention.
Puts a new meaning to a collectable bust.
Zombies would eat the fleshiest meatiest part of a person.

Science says so
