'Lost Planet 3' developers are 'flattered' at use of ice planet in 'Dead Space 3'

The developers of the upcoming installment in the Lost Planet series, Lost Planet 3, are flattered at the use of an ice planet environment in the Visceral Games-developed Dead Space 3, Capcom producer Andrew Szymanski told Polygon.

Despite numerous comparisons being made between both titles, Szymanski stated the similarities were simply a comparison; however, he emphasized that the Capcom-developed series had staked its claim on the setting years before.

I'm not sure if they are trying to copy your ice planet LP3 devs. It's not like you created and patented the idea.

SSKILLZ1943d ago

lol actually Mario bros developers are flattered at LP3 for using and ice planet, haha.

Lol wut?

Only about a thousand games used an "ice planet" setting before Lost Planet was even an ill-fated twinkle in someone's eye.

This reminds me of Facebook patenting the word "face".

Glad I could start my Friday with a laugh!

I'm so flattered that you started your Friday off with a laugh because I did that earlier.

Someone needs to be politely smacked upside the head I see.

And they're from Capcom. What. A. Surprise.

@karlowma:
You never heard of Lucas Arts trademarking the word "Nazi" have you.

@Metal-X:
Pretty sure they've sued over it.

Metal-X1943d ago (Edited 1943d ago )

Didn't Bethesda trademark "scrolls" too? Or they tried to, at least.

karlowma1943d ago (Edited 1943d ago )

No, but ZeniMax hit Notch with a lawsuit over it.

ugh it's been done before, Crapcom.
