Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Lost Planet 2 Confirmed as Xbox360 Exclusive

So this means that Lost Planet 2 will come to the Wii right?

Still poor logic on Capcom's part, IMO. I mean, all timed exclusivity does is ensure that the eventual PS3 version will have abysmal sales yet again... in exchange for moneys nao!!!, of course. But they're gimping the growth of their own franchise, and aren't they trying to make a theatrical release movie of this thing?

 

I disagree. I don't think the staggered launch kills total sales, just one console's. I mean, if you launch both systems at once, it gives people the chance to opt for the PS3 version, true. But chances are they're just taking from the 360's sales. If only say 200k people that want it have ONLY a PS3, and the rest have both... they can just as easily slash the budget to focus on the 360 version, and make the same amount with less effort.

But then is there really a purpose in making a PS3 version later, as they did with the original Lost Planet? The whole idea behind going multiplatform, whether simultaneous or not, is that being on more platforms = more sales.

But what happens if Lost Planet 2 is a full 360 exclusive? Dead Rising 1 is still 360 exclusive because the sales were good so MS and Capcom both agreed to keep it exclusive (some money were involved ) so Capcom received some money and MS kept DR1 exclusive and cashed in on the software side.

I`m betting things will be the same here(US loves shooters plus L4D is somehow similar to Dead Rising 2). MS will keep LP2 exclusive and enjoy a cash comeback from software sales.

My 2 cents

I am continuously glad to be a 360 owner:)

 

 

Likewise mate Xbox 360 FTW yet again. Continued support of the Xbox 360 by 3rd party devlopers years into the future isn't even in question. Xbox 360 cannot lose no matter how things go from here.



Stupid move by Capcom. If anything should be exclusive it will be DR2.

LOL I hope they make this exclusive to 360 then make DMC 5 as ps3 exclusive.

Why make DMC 5 an exclusive?  Is it some belief in cosmic justice, so there can be spite back at XBox fans?

Even after reading all this, AT MOST, I can say is MAYBE it is a time exclusive.  MAYBE it is a timed ANNOUNCEMENT exclusive (see Assassin's Creed and PS3).  Maybe the only thing is that the 360 is Capcom's lead console for development.  I don't see exclusive here.  And if what they are developing it on is multiplatform, then it could go PS3.  This being said, I see some of these possibilities:

1. Moneyhatting by Microsoft.

2. Development studio/Capcom doesn't feel it will sell on the PS3.

3. Delayed release.  This, for a B-level title like Lost Planet, would be fatal to PS3 sales.  It was fatal for a game like Bioshock.  It would be here also.

I have a 360 and don't have a PS3,
but my opinion still hasn't changed on the game.
I played the first one and I really don't care for it.
This news does not excite me at all and I could care less what platform it is on.

360 IS OPERATIONAL AFTER 37 DAYS!

This will be a game that I'll buy or ignore based on word of mouth and reviews.

1) No doubt about that. Capcom has enough knowledge and experience about all platforms to go multiplat. Ignoring the Japanese userbase as a Japanese studio doesn't make sense.

2) That's their mistake then, look at Biohazard / Resident Evil 5

3) True, unless the game turns out to be A-level, or they are able to improve it to A-level. Guess we have to wait how this one turns out.



no its not a xbox exclusive lol.xbox fans take things the wrong way always and say things without thinking.it never said it was exclusive.capcom released an exclusive video announching on xbox live during a res evil 5 video that they were developing lost planet 2 for the xbox.but heres were it comes in,not once did they say it was exclusive.all they said was an xbox version was in development.

capcom aint stupid,they wont release a game on 1 consol especially after announching exclusivitys with them is over and they definitly wont starve the ps3 anymore wat with ps3 owners buying more games than xbox



To be fair the US was the bulk of those sales and it's completely crushing the PS3 here in the States
