Some Famitsu scans have started speculation that Capcom‘s Lost Planet 2 will be an Xbox 360-only title. Nothing official yet on this issue, but even if you don’t care about the game’s possible console exclusivity, check out the full article. There are new scans and even a handful of game details there.
They’ve said it again and again: “We like multiplatform”. So why is Capcom‘s Lost Planet sequel listed only as an Xbox 360 game in the latest Famitsu preview as seen in the scan below?
The first thing that comes to mind is timed exclusivity. Yeah, Capcom has committed to going multi-platform on all of their new releases, but that doesn’t mean they can’t do timed exclusives. The announcement was made on Live, after all. So the game could come out first on the Xbox 360 while the PS3 gets Lost Planet 2: Extremer Conditions sometime down the road. Just like the original.
Another possible reason is even simpler: the build Famitsu previewed was for the Xbox 360 version. I don’t know a thing about the Japanese language, but the Kotaku report on the scans says that the game’s already 40% done and features online multiplayer and four-player co-op. No mention was made on which console build the preview was based on. Check out more scans below.
