Capcom Clarifies Deleted Content In Lost Planet 2
Last week, several sources reported that Capcom was forced to cut plenty of content from Lost Planet 2 due to size and space constraints. The game's producer, Jun Takeuchi, said the eliminated content might eventually arrive in the form of downloadable content.
Since that time, everyone was wondering if this only applies to the Xbox 360 version, as the Blu-Ray disc for the PlayStation 3 version can hold a great deal more in the way of data and information. And as Meodia points out, it would hardly be the first time a PS3 version of a multiplatform game featured extra content. However, according to the previously linked article, Capcom's Brian Keltner has clarified the situation:
"The major content for both versions will be identical and ensure an enjoyable experience for consumers of either platform.” Going on further to say “the development team has kept the most important elements of the game and we are confident that consumers will not be disappointed with Lost Planet 2 and the variety of massive Akrid, powerful vital suits, beautiful environments and deep level of customization included in the final product."
It would make little sense for Capcom to release a PS3 version that is superior to the 360 version in terms of available content; the majority of Lost Planet fans own a 360, as it debuted first on that system and didn't arrive on the PS3 until a year later (and it didn't sell very well, either). Furthermore, this is a simultaneous launch, so to have one version one-up the other is akin to shooting yourself in the foot...'cough' Bayonetta 'cough' But anyway, just so you know, both versions of Lost Planet 2 will have the same stuff.
