sigh...360 needs this. Looks like it shall be timed and PS3 will get it later with some new feature. Good move by microsoft to get it timed though. Timed exclusives better than no exclusives

CaseyRyback_CPO3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

The first one coming out on ps3.. and capcom being a multiplatform developer.

My only problem with lost planet, is that the first one sucked on 360/pc/and sucked most on the ps3. I'm glad that i'm not relying on a LP2 announcement/footage at e3 for any of my consoles/computer. Capcom is in the business of making money. If you want some real exclusives, look to your first party devs folks. Not ones on the console/pc.

When Lp2 hits the ps3 it will of course run slightly worse than the 360 arcade version which it was optimized to run on, which always come in far behind any ps3 exclusive when it comes to performance, what ps3 owners are going to buy LP2 once it hits in the sea that is PSE3? The first one performed terribly as well. Capcom is giong to have to prove that its running well before they fool the 34 people that bought the ps3 version into buying it again instead of exclusives.

And why the hell do you invest in a timed exclusive of LP2? This is all wrong. SF4, yes. RE5, yes. LP2? ... Its like buyingn exclusive wheelman dlc..

oh wait.

The way things are with Capcom games... we'll have another 5gb install... get ready for a sandwich spree.

JokesOnYou3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

because I thought they actually had "more evidence", damm was I wrong.


sonarus3359d ago

yup 5Gb install is pretty much Guaranteed.

Godmars2903359d ago

Why? Not like they went to any extra effort with the last one.

snipermk03359d ago

I will simply get it for the PC and problem solved.

Ninver3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

This whole timed exclusive thing is utter nonsense if you ask me. If you(the scum company) end up having the game released for a substantial amount of time before the rest, then you're basically beta testing the game for the ps3 and vise versa.

Regardless how much people try to deny it, third party exclusives are gone out the window. This is the sole reason why Sony will forever have the upper hand when it comes to games and momentum. They always have something new and groundbreaking to offer on a monthly basis.

A true gamer knows that moves like this are pathetic and M$ has lead in this department. I never thought i'd see the day when such a large corporations like Micro would be riding on third party games and false advertise them like they where exclusives. Truly and utterly pathetic. So are fools who follow such a underwhelming corporation.

s8anicslayer3359d ago

unless MS can pay capcom what they would make on the ps3 it will not be exclusive to the 360, but then again it's ms so that is very possible

Bnet3433359d ago

No one is denying that it's not coming to PS3 so I don't see why this is being dragged out like this. It's going to come out on PS3 and PC just like every other Capcom game this generation. For some people, "common sense isn't so common"

Adolf Hitler3359d ago

Sweet more games to play.:)

I did not murder him3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

This is based on some of the same speculations we have already heard. The info isn't even accurate. No one ever said the game is in development for "PC" and the 360. I fail to see any new "evidence" you say?

IdleLeeSiuLung3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

I personally thoroughly enjoyed the first one. I'm looking forward to the second one that so far looks amazing.

It will come to the PS3 with some extra content though.... I prefer not to have timed exclusives because it basically steals the early adopters of extra content while excluding other gamers.

It is a lose-lose situation for gamers in general, but the practice is here to stay.

edit: Obviously this won't happen, but I would laugh hard if it came out on the Wii instead of PS3.

Traveler3359d ago

I played the first one on my 360 and thought it was fairly mediocre. This one does look more interesting though, so we'll see.

Adolf Hitler3359d ago

It doesn't make sense to keep the T-eng system.If it's warm enough for plant life to grow why do they need thermal energy?

7ero H3LL3358d ago (Edited 3358d ago )

the MT engine works better with 360, and even more so when the project is xbox 360 lead.

if capcom wants to make it exclusive to 360 or make it a multiplatform that's up to them, but it's most def that ps3's version won't be worth paying attention to or worth buying.

Sarcasm3358d ago

meh, I'm going to at least rent the 360 version. The first one was 7/10. It could have been better, but man it was annoying when you fell, it had a 3-5 second animation for you to get back up just for you to get knocked down again.

Jun Takeuchi eat a D*** with your crappy character controls (RE5 too)

Beast_Master3358d ago

I would be lying if I said I didn't want to play this game.. I love me some Co-op games though. Get your rocks ready because... I actually want this and Army of Two: 40th day. I have a blast playing co-op games with my little Bro and buddies that come over to the house, to bad all I have to play is Army of 2, RE5 and Resistance 2 at the moment.

Either come out and say yes, no or we're still unfamiliar with the PS3. At this point timed exclusives are only hurting publishers. Same applies to Sony and Ghostbusters.

locos853358d ago

Why all this commotion for this game. The 1st one was sh!t. This is as irrelevant as the stupid Ghostbusters timed exclusivity.

Lfmesquite3359d ago

think it is. It's probably a timed exclusive because they've said that right now they're only working on the 360 version.

OGharryjoysticks3359d ago

But since they are only working on the 360 version, it won't translate well when time comes to make the PS3 version. Regardless of what Capcom or any other publisher PR says about how they develop games and how the engines are supposedly built for multiplatform it's just PR talk. To build perfection for the PS3 you need to start ground up on that platform.

Lost Planet 2 on PS3 will be inferior.

mastiffchild3358d ago

Yeah, there's absolutely no point in them releasing the PS3 version at all under these circumstances. Most games would lose out on PS3 sales purely with the later release but with the example of how a very mundane first game on 360 translated into an even worse experience on PS3 this one's properly dead in the water.

I'll rent it for 360 but after being stung by the first one it'll have to be incredibly different to make me buy it this time around. I dunno when I last really enjoyed a Capcom game, and I know people think they're on good form but , for me, DMC4 and LP were bad and everything else since has been pretty "meh" as well(possible exceptions of MM9 anmd SF2THDR)plus after ruining the SP of RE5 to add insult to injury with the Vs content fiasco means I just don't trust them anymore.

chasegamez23359d ago

it just doesn't work
which console gets it last
it sells poorly

Narutone663359d ago

beta testing it for the other console.

II Necroplasm II3359d ago

Just hope the port will be much better than the port of the first game.

gauntletpython3359d ago

i dont know who Capcom thinks they are fooling. Just announce timed exclusive and get it over with.

GiantEnemyCrab3359d ago

Yes, it doesn't make much sense to be so vague about it.

If it's timed or an exclusive just say it. Then we won't have to listen to the hacks of the internet basically talking out of their arse like they know what is going to happen or going on with this game.

Polluted3359d ago

Yeah, but they get a lot of free publicity out of fanatics arguing over whether their game will appear on their console of choice. This article is a good example.

JD_Shadow3359d ago

I think you should say this to Bioware, as well, about Mass Effect 2.

Sarcasm3358d ago

crab summed it up nicely with massive damage.

"It's not coming out for PS3... or is it?" "Is it?" "No... not right now. Exclusive to the 360." "Not right now?" "No, not ever!!! Maybe." "Maybe?" "No not maybe. Never. for now." "FOR NOW???"
