Lost Planet 2 May Miss The PS3

Even though Capcom typically has a multiplatform approach to this generation, it doesn't appear as if they want to bring Lost Planet 2 to the PlayStation 3.

This may seem odd, as Dead Rising 2 is certainly PS3-bound, but perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Extreme Condition likely didn't sell so well when it finally emerged on Sony's machine. Now, the game's producer, Jun Takeuchi, says they're "only working on the 360 version of Lost Planet 2 right now." He made the unfortunate statement during Capcom's Captivate 09 event last week, and when pressed about other platforms, he would only say that they're "not ready to announce anything...at this time." Because the new series debuted on the 360, there's every indication that Capcom may just want to focus on the platform that most of the Lost Planet fans identify with. The publisher may not think it's worth the time and money to produce a PS3 version of the sequel, and we probably can't blame them for this outlook. On the other hand, there's a chance that Lost Planet 2 could just be another timed exclusive for the 360, even though many PS3 owners just shrug their shoulders and say, "eh, they can keep it."

From our point of view, if the game is good, it'd make for a worthy addition to the PS3's library. At the same time, there are plenty of PS3 exclusives that will occupy our time, so...

I won't be crying if I can't play Lost Planet 2. I didn't care for the demo of the original game on the Xbox 360.

It's Capcom's fault for the less than lukewarm reception of the first Lost Planet on the PS3. If it were on par qualitywise if not better than the 360 version, then PS3 gamers might have bad more reasons to buy it. This would have given them more reason for a sequel on the PS3.

Oh....Boo-Hoo...I guess I'll have to live with Uncharted 2 and GT5.

The first one was so-so at best. I liked the concept but the gameplay was lacking. 360 can keep it.

I played the first one in the 360, but since I sold my 360, I had thought to buy the sequel on PS3.

Shame on them. Let's play U2:AT

Not really bothered if PS3 doesn't get LP2 as wasn't really a fan of the first. What I don't understand though is why release MvC2 demo exclusive to PSN (but for how long??) and Bionic Commando demo exclusive to 360??. Why not just release both demos on both networks?

Here's a crazy logic trail: Capcom offers us a delayed, half-baked version of the first LP, so PS3 players naturally don't buy it, and now, we don't get a crack at the second title. Kinda pointless for Capcom to even bring it up, no?

That's the sound of people going about their business as if they didn't care. Mostly because they don't.

On a related note how did this game sell enough copies to get a sequel?

It was a fairly big release for the Xbox 360. In fact, I'm pretty sure Lost Planet hit high on sales charts for a little while.

The PS3 version, on the other hand...it barely registered.

honestly, they shouldn't have expected sales to be good on the ps3, they released the game a "a day late and a dollar short"

In fact, with timed exclusives like this, it often messes with sales later down the road for whoever gets it later.

And, honestly, the game was ok at best, nothing really worth bragging about, it came out in a time on the 360 when the pickings were a lil slim imo which might be the reason why it did decent sales on the 360. The capcom name on it didnt hurt either

I tend to think it did well on the 360 due to the fact that it was one of the early releases with online deathmatch. As PS3 owners had many better options when the PS3 version came out, people just didnt care.

Had the original Lost Planet on Xbox, it was fun but I won't be crying about missing the 2nd one. Now Dead Rising on the other hand is another story. I still have the original on Xbox and am glad the 2nd is going multiplat.

Never played the first one, and judging from these comments, I didn't miss much. If that's the case, I'm over it.

I really don't understand how the PS3 version of Lost Planet was inferior?? I played Lost Planet originally on the 360, then eventually finished it on the PS3, because my friend bought me a copy as a gift.

I'm not seeing that there is this huge quality difference - if at all. Can someone enlighten me? Or is this just another "bash the multiplatform PS3 version at any opportunity" stab?

For the record, I actually like Lost Planet. I thought it was fun, and the graphics were great. No complaints here.

i dont recall it being inferior in any way, its just that by the time the game came out, most ps3 users who wanted it...didn't. Anyone who wanted to pay it already did, kinda the same reason why bioshock didnt move as many copies on the ps3. Its why i think "timed exclusivity" is becoming a bad idea nowadays

wont be shedding a single tear on this one. I thought the first one was really bad anyway. Why they are even making a second one after pretty moderate sales is beyond me. I am more willing to say that with MS's lack of exsclusives this year it may have been a backroom type of deal.. hint money, money and after the dismall software results this past NPD post may have pushed the deal even more either way I could care less seeing I really hated the first one on either system anyway.

I picked up Lost Planet for PS3 when it came out. It was fun. Nothing spectacular but still fun. Controls felt "ok", aside from the limited viewing/aiming area.

I love the snow and idea of a snow covered planet (see: Hoth). Now that it looks like it takes place in Uncharted territory (add giant bugs), no thanks.

The first one was imo a 7.2-10. Seeing the trailers for the 2nd one where multiple people are fighting a giant bug actually had my interest a little peaked. That being said, with this news though it isn't a great loss with all the PS3 exclusives coming, not to mention some of the multiplats like, Bayonetta, Dantes Inferno, Bioshock 2, Mafia 2.

although the first game was a bit boring, it would be a shame for this game to miss the ps3 even if it is just timed exclusive. You would think that capcom would have learned by now, bring it out at the same time to maximize their profits.

If the ps3 can get Dead Rising 2 without even having the first game, then there is no reason for them to skip over this game for the ps3 players

It's all good and well and you guys guys can either love it or hate Lost Planet but the fact is we're (PS3) is getting shafted again. This time by Capcom AGAIN! They went on their all multiplatform quest and that is fine by me... But now they give a Capcom game exclusive to M$...

Sorry but that's is just F***** up.

I only played a little bit of LP on the PS3 as it was at my buddies house and I would say it was such a horrible game. Maybe it did suffer from the bad port syndrome around that time. But if they actually developed it on both consoles for a simultaneous release then it might actually have turned out to be a good game.

Okay fair enough we have more than enough proper exclusives that we will without a doubt choose over any other 3rd party games but still.... I don't like it when people (Capcom,S-E) say one thing but does something else.

As for timed exclusives I think it will always hurt sales on the console that gets it last. Because face it the people who own both consoles couldn't care less about which platform they own it on. So if it comes out first on that console they will buy it. It's better to play a game when it's fresh and new than playing it 1 year down he line when everyone else has already played it. No wonder it sold badly on the PS3.

I guess Capcom doesn't realize that the main reason for lackluster Lost Planet sales on the PS3 is directly attributed to the fact that the game was released on the PS3 a year later than its Xbox counterpart. Even I lost interest in the game by the time it came out.

People are not going to jump to play a game that's been available on other platforms a year ago unless it's incredibly good and has custom extras that makes the purchase worthwhile. Also the game tech and graphics will be old news in comparison to new games coming out that year, the story will be spoiled, and the extras won't be enough to sell the game to us at full price.

It sounds like they're making the same mistake here with the sequel. Capcom, don't bother giving us LP2 in 2011 if it hits other platforms in 2009/2010.

Release it on time or don't waste our time.
