Lost Planet 2 PS3 Possible After All?
Okay, we're getting a little tired of these stories, even though we know it qualifies as news that will appeal to some PlayStation 3 owners.
It's the growing saga surrounding a possible PS3 version of Lost Planet 2. When Capcom's Keiji Inafune first dropped the hint that it was coming, he said it would be released for the PS3 and 360 in 2009. But when the official announcement came, there was no mention of the PS3 and when pressed, Capcom vice-president Christian Svensson would only say the situation is "complicated" and "confusing." This doesn't really help and to add more fuel to the fire, Capcom has just released the list of games they plan to bring to E3. You will notice the glaring inclusion of the word "currently" next to Lost Planet 2; no other game on that list carries such a clarification or justification or whatever. Now, recent articles we've posted on this site have revealed the pulse of the readers: they really don't seem to care if Lost Planet 2 comes to the PS3 or not; it may be due to the fact that the original took so long to release on Sony's machine. Hence, sales were low - a good reason for Capcom's reluctance - and interest in a sequel is likely low as well.
But anyway, we'll be keeping an eye on things. At this point, it may only be a matter of time before Lost Planet 2 shows up on the PS3, but, well...how many people care?
