Lost Planet Colonies Finally Announced PC/360 Only

Kotaku Writes:

Capcom (may) have, via leaked mag scans, had the wraps taken off Lost Planet Colonies, the successor to snowy bug-killing simulator Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. What's new? There's a new playable character (that girl in snow gear) and in online play you'll get the option of playing as the bugs against the humans. That online play will feature cross-platform play between PCs and 360s. There's all-new weapons and all-new monsters to fight (including their eggs), and it'll be out in Japan on May 29. Oh, and no word of a PS3 release as of yet. Bear in mind: all this info comes courtesy of a leaked magazine scan that's been...modified to include super-awesome Xbox Japan boss Takashi Sensui, so until we get some more concrete info, take it all with a grain of salt.

Sweet I hope this one has even more mech but what I find a bummer is that if the leaked achievements are true we are looking at a game with almost ALL of them being multiplayer focused :(

mighty_douche3901d ago

Yeah i agree. Seem's fan's of a good single player experience are being taken for a rough ride by the developer's lately.

KidMakeshift3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

This isn't official

I'm confused. Is this a sequel with a new single player campaign or just an extension of the multiplayer?

otherZinc3901d ago

if it is an extension of the multiplayer I'll pass, as much as I love this game if its multi heavy they can keep it.

If not its a day 1 purchase for me, I loved Lost Planet.

KidMakeshift3901d ago

It's hard for me to believe that it's coming out in 2 months

The release date makes things awfully fishy

The Lazy One3901d ago

Don't count out the fact that it might be a $25 game if it's just multiplayer. For that price it might be worth it.

playing as the bugs is a pretty awesome idea.

just read on joystiq this is going to be a redux if the first, described as "Lost Planet 1.5." meh : (

IF and I do say IF, this is true...great way for Capcom to screw their potential PS3 sales.

mighty_douche3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

True, but there's only 2 Capcom game's i want this year (RE5, SF4), ok I'm interested in a few others (bionic commando and the like) but not releasing Lost Planet Colonies on the PS3 wont lose them a penny from me, I personally dont care for this game.

Guwapo773901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

I'm not interested in this game either. But if people were going to buy the PS3 version of this game they won't now being they can't get the expansion. What is the use? Get the X360/PC version to get the expansion.

Those that disagree...maybe you know something I don't...share it with me.

*in the future I'll explain exactly what I mean in the original post*

The Lazy One3901d ago

Given the low software sales of the PS3, and the extra cost of development, it might balance out in the end.

Then you have the fact that they might just have a deal with M$ for LP.

fenderputty3901d ago

be making their decision based off of LP1 sales on the PS3. The game is garbage though. I've heard many xbox fans say this when the game was announced for the PS3. I also heard many PS3 fans say the same thing. The way I look at it, who cares ... I mean really ... there are plenty of exclusive titles coming to the PS3 this year. Who cares about LP2?

NinjaRyu3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

The way PS3 fans were saying 'WE DON'T WANT NO LOST PLANET' when capcon said they were going to bring to the PS3. After that I'm not surprised capcon wouldn't bring the next Lost Planet to the PS3.

Lost Planet was one of the worst games I've ever played in my life. I wish they would simply pretend this franchise wasn't created and never look back.

skitzoid3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

I didn't think Lost Planet was a really bad game. It was just something to play and pass time while waiting for top tier games (filler title). It was very vibrant and it had some really good visuals but ho hum game play. It was one of those games that I was just hoping would end so I could say I got my moneys worth from it.

Online it was boring.

The only games I am looking forward to from Capcom are RE5 and SFIV.

Ju3901d ago

I think its a pretty OK game. A PS3 version of the sequel would be welcome. But well, if not, then not.

poopface13900d ago

I just rented(along time ago) it and thought the last boss was retardedly hard to beat but the game wasn't that bad, as long as you didnt buy it. some things I really liked was the explosions, grappling hook, and the killing of starship trooper like bugs. It wasnt the greatest game(slow ass guy getting up after falling down) but it wasnt crap either.

ps360s3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

Well I'm 1 of them who did'nt like this game aswell same with my friend lol

But with X play I might consider it...just might...naw who am I kidding lol
