Is Lost Planet 2 an Xbox 360 Exclusive?

2 min read

We posted recently that Lost Planet 2 had been announced via Xbox Live of all places – Well it seems that Lost Planet 2/Xbox connection runs a little deeper. We’ve received the official Lost Planet 2 press release, and it appears – in loose PR speak – that Lost Planet 2 will be an Xbox 360 exclusive.

According to the release “…Lost Planet® 2 is being developed for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, following an exclusive announcement on Xbox LIVE that happened Monday, February 23.”

This is disparate to statements from Capcom to the contrary – they’ve pledged that “All major titles launched during the next fiscal year or thereafter will be developed as multi-platform games."

I suspect it may be a timed exclusive, although I’m not too sure many PS3 owners really care, considering how badly the original Lost Planet was ported to their system of choice.

What the press release has confirmed is that Lost Planet 2 – the first game developed using Capcom’s 2nd generation of their MT Framework – will indeed have 4 player co-op, which puts it very close to the top of my “must have” list.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    I never played the original… I hated the demo and kinda avoided it. A do have access to it though.. is the first one worth a play through or not?

  • RivaZA

    It is still one of my favourite games. I actually preferred it to Gears of War.

  • ocelot

    The original only sold well because the Xbox 360 hardly had any good games back in early 2007.

    True true. I still have game manauls stating the game is an exclusive to xbox 360 😛 Well you cant argue. 4 player co-op is quite tempting

    4 player coop might make it a must buy …. :ninja:

  • DarthPenguin

    So the answer is yes but only if I pretend there aren’t any other games?
