Lost Planet Colonies confirmed for $30, online not backwards-compatible

Joystiq writes: "Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition -- known around these parts as Lost Planet: Colonies or Lost Planet 1.5 -- has finally been officially announced. The game is a repackaging of the full Lost Planet title, plus a bunch of additional multiplayer and single-player extras. The good news: It'll cost about $30. The bad news: Colonies Edition multiplayer will be incompatible with current Lost Planet games.

Scheduled for a May 27 release on 360 and PC, Colonies mainly adds new, creative multiplayer modes to the original game. Several are based on holding checkpoints and CTF variants. Our favorite, however, lets one gamer control an Akrid, with the others teaming up to try to take down the alien. Different creatures are available, and we recently saw a demo showing how a spindly, player-controlled giant can make quick kills with its swiping legs."

I'll pass on this garbage. Capcom bring on SF4 & RE5.

Why did Capcom port a subpar version to the PS3 just a month ago when this was coming? What was the point?

Really, even though we still got Lost Planet, which was nice at first, it came out with like 3 upgrades. Now there's a new edition that's cheaper 2 months later with more stuff?

Great news, LP was big a year ago in Xbox 360, i really enjoy it and now i will enjoy Colonies. Bad news for the people with the ctappy port.

I remember really liking the Xbox360 demo, but for some reason I never got around to buy the game.
I'm certainly going to buy this version.

And yeah, it sucks for the Ps3 brothers and sisters (the ones that like Lost Planet, anyway) that they won't get this version. Capcom definitely screwed up there, they should have waited a couple of months and released "Colonies" for both consoles.

Why do they announce a new better version 1 month after selling a regular version to ps3? They SHOULD RELEASE THIS ON PS3 TOO, I dont CARE, THEY SAID THEY WANTED Multiplatform games, Then give us Dead Rising, this one and more
