Lost Planet 2 on Xbox360 Trimmed

Capcom has revealed that they had no alternative but to cut the Xbox 360 version of Lost Planet 2 due to the limitation of DVD space. Since the PS3 is using Blu Ray discs the upcoming game for that system will remain in its entirity un-edited.

Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi said in an interview with Kotaku that the DVD dics used for the Xbox360 required a portion of the game to be trimmed. He further stated that edited content on Xbox 360 was “way too much” and that dealing with the problem was “more difficult than anything” in the development because the content cut was significant. The development team was almost in tears while having to cut swathes of the game to fit with the available DVD disc space.

The only little bit of hope for Xbox360 players was that lost content could come later as a download on the Xbox Live Marketplace - at what cost is too early to predict!

The edited, significantly cut down version of Lost Planet 2 will be released for the Xbox 360 in May.

That’s just pure garbage.
They could’ve released two DVDs as everybody else is doing nowadays.
I’m not a fanboy or anything. I just don’t understand why there can’t be a installation dvd oder something similar.

It’s called “paid DLC”.

Bullshit, what a bunch of crap. Just make it a special edition with the extra disc and charge an extra 10 bucks. People who play LP are hardcore gamers and would have no problem with that. Lost planet Multi-Player is still very active even after 3 years since it came out. I played some last weekend and had a blast. There was still a ton of people online. I’m still ranked 30th in post grab and in the top 300 on the world leaderboard. Xbox 360 is what made Lost Plannet in the first place. Without Xbox Live that game would never have had sold even close to to a million copy’s, let alone 2 million. Come on Capcom, Pull your head out of your Ass. Time to pony up to the fan base that made Lost Planet a success in the first place.

If FinalFantasy XIII can come out on 3 discs - I’m sure this could have come out on two… if they really wanted it too.

Yeah, I agree. Lost Odyssey for the 360 was like a 4 disc game AND had DLC and it still kicked ass. This is jut being lazy. But no, XBoxic hit the nail on the head: “The only little bit of hope for Xbox360 players was that lost content could come later as a download on the Xbox Live Marketplace - at what cost is too early to predict!” They don’t want to eat the cost of selling the game at the same price and having to expand the game to multiple discs but will gladly charge you for it online!

see the big issue here is microsoft not wanted to adopt blu-ray.
so 360 owners are stuck with having to pay forDLC when the ps3 gets it alltogether.
to be honest i dont blame capcom i blame microsoft because they are just going to charge more for xtra discs..they’ve done it before. so i think ill wait for the ps3 version and see how that goes.
