One million downloads in two weeks for Lost Planet

Who's that hottie?If the performance of the downloadable version of a title is any indication of how it will be received by the consumers once it officially hits the retail stores, then Capcom, as early as now, starts counting their chicks even before the eggs hatch.

That’s because since Lost Planet: Extreme Condition‘s release in the Xbox Live just a couple of weeks ago, it has already been downloaded one million times by the global Xbox community. According to their numbers, 30,000 hours have already been spent by players worldwide locked in intense combat against those giant bugs in Lost Planet.

Said Hiroshi Tobisawa, Capcom president for Europe, “[This] is a great testament to the quality of Lost Planet. This latest demo has completely energized the Xbox community, giving them something to look forward to in the New Year, when the next big hit Xbox 360 title hits retail.”

Smug. But hey, you can’t really blame the guy if he turns out rather cocky and confident at this point with the future performance of the title. After all, the numbers do tell a lot. And the reviews, so far, have been nothing but raving. Apart from that, it isn’t really surprising that gamers would be drawn dramatically to the demo, especially when you know that Capcom really lends out their listening ear and actually takes into serious consideration your comments and suggestions for the improvement of the game.

Now, that’s mutual commitment.

Game comes out January next year.
