Well people , I think there wont be any Capcom Exclusive games no more unless they are on the Nintendo wii.

"with some exclusive content for the Xbox 360 version"

I love how Capcom claims to be an unbiased game dev, now making all their games multi-plat, yet they pull crap like that. Bu-bu.. we gave you a s**tty Lost Planet port with s**tty extras! It's all a load of crap IMO. If you want everyone to get the most for their money, then GIVE EVERYONE A FAIR SHARE.

And if you think it's only because Lost Planet is a franchise that started on 360, then where was the PS3 gamers' exclusive content with DMC4, or even RE5 for that matter?

GameGambits3704d ago

I don't care which console it comes out for, because I own both. ;)

I'm just so excited to hear they are finally working on the sequel. This is the best news for 2009 since Killzone 2. Wooh! Cannot wait. :D

Well to be fair Capcom has a history of screwing people over.

-They ported over Street Fighter II on the SNES to the Genesis.In the old days that was a huge exclusive lost to Nintendo.

-Capcom ditched both Nintendo and Sega when the PS1 came to the top with Resident Evil

-Capcom ignored the PS2 for the Gamecube by promising 5 exclusive games including Resident Evil 4 for Nintendo and giving Sony the cold shoulder.

-Capcom then turned around and gave up all the GC exclusives to Sony even though RE4 sold millions on the GC

-Capcom gave 2 exclusives to 360:Dead Rising and Lost Planet.Capcom the turns around and gives up Dead Rising to the Wii and Lost Planet to PS3.

-MS has payed millions for exclusive deals with Capcom like DLC and console bundles only to have Capcom make new deals with Sony on PSN and then the online director for Capcom insults MS in a recent interview.

Completely agree with you. Can't wait for the game to come out later this year!

What you are saying is indeed true. However, having the game released on multiple platforms never hurt the consumers so I don't care!

"Lost Planet sequel in development"

Yuck. Why?

"With news over the weekend that the Lost Planet film would be backed by a huge $150-$200 million budget"

YUCK. Why?!

Megaton3703d ago

That's the first thing I thought. The first one was terrible. I guess it must be really popular in Japan for them to invest so much into this title's future.

edhe3703d ago

It actually sold really well.

It looked much better than it was tbh, could've done with better 'cheves tho - and mechs that didn't feel like they were coal powered.

Apparently was popular online for a while.

2m+ estimation's enough for a sequel. I just hope that they get rid of the timed gameplay [use orbs for RPG style skills] actually use some proper voice actors and maybe put some more structure into the levels, and more checkpoints, speed up the mechs and make the controls more elegant.

Ah yeah, make the running speed faster and the MP more accessable - dropping into a warzone isn't fun when all the other guys have mechs and you're dead.

bu bu but Killzone1 was crap too and is getting a sequel

NickIni3703d ago (Edited 3703d ago )

Many people disagree. There is no "crap game". Just because you didn't like it, doesn't make it 'crap'.

EDIT: Wow! I guess GTA IV is a 'crap game' then because I didn't like it! According to some people anyway...

Why dis3703d ago

How is PS3 center getting this news when the whole media is clueless?

TheColbertinator3703d ago

Simple.The original news is from Famitsu.PS3center has a copy of the Japanese mag or a contact in Japan who has the new issue

Why dis3703d ago

Been looking for other sources for hours here and there lol.

I just keep getting quotes of the info provided by PS3 center in all no name underground PS3 sites.

Firstkn1ghT3703d ago

Dead Rising 2 and Lost Planet 2 coming out? WOW! Love me Capcom games.

Why dis3703d ago

Lost planet is a very cool concept. Can't wait to see what they have in store.

Hope it isn't downgraded.

Firstkn1ghT3703d ago

They're probably going to use the ps3 as lead since the 360 can easily handle their ports like the recent DMC. The ps3 on the other hand has a hard time handling the 360's ports.

Why dis3703d ago

Why would they waste their time? they didn't even bother with the collectors edition. Outside of Japan PS3 owners hate LP.

I don't think capcom will lead on PS3 they rather get attacked than not try to make a game as good as can be(will be fine with games of different qualities)

Why dis3703d ago (Edited 3703d ago )

This PS3 site is running around saying these games are confirmed to be coming to PS3.

They are simply announcing the new LP and DR2 and saying they are thinking about a multi platform focus.

Here is the original supposed text while PS3 center says confirmed for PS3, they only mention that they are "thinking about" multi platform allegiance.

Going Multi platform could mean anything from these games going to Wii, PC and PS3 to other games in the future. lol

EDIT Below:

So says the person that didn't even mention the topic but goes on to personal attack. The Irony

Omegasyde3703d ago

Wow, I bet you two couldn't go into a 360 only thread without trolling against Sony.

GJ you two. Thanks for making the open zone, absolutely pointless.

Sez 3703d ago

either way i will still be getting these games on the 360.
