Yakuza: Of The End and Lost Planet 2 are PlayStation 3 games
But that doesn't stop them running on Sony's latest portable device, the NGP. During Sony's PlayStation Meeting press conference in Japan, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi took to the stage to demonstrate Lost Planet 2 running on the new handheld. Takeuchi said the demo was running MT Framework Mobile and was put together in just two weeks. Takeuchi..
Capcom's been hit by another hard quarter in which major releases did not perform to expectations
In their latest quarterly financial report - dating April through June - Capcom blamed the slow growth of Lost Planet 2 which put their net sales down 2.4% year over year. Net income dropped an astounding 90% from last year to around 213 million yen ($2.5 million US). Capcom cited that titles such as..
The UK software charts are in, and there's very little surprise as far as number one goes
Yep, apparently British people still like to kick balls around a field, as FIFA World Cup 2010's still in pole position. Uh-huh. XBOX 360 exclusive Alan Wake managed to place in second whilst Capcom's Lost Planet 2 entered in a respectable third. There's little else to talk about elsewhere as the usual mix of..
3D Dot Game Heroes and Modnation Racers: two Playstation 3 exclusives
The Playstation Store: a revolutionary online service dedicated to delivering sub-$15 experiences direct to our hard-drive. The knot in the middle: "These games look like they should be PSN downloads," forum posts complain, "$60 retail release. Not worth it. I'm not...
How unusual - this is the second post in just as many days that we've discussed a cameo appearance from Killzone's Helghast
Taking a break from from fighting their own war and playing tennis, the Helghan warriors are set to embark upon Capcom's Lost Planet 2. It's probably a more fitting hang-out for the orange-eyed soldiers, as many of Lost Planet 2's environments look vaguely similar to Killzone..
We have done one of these for a couple of weeks
Mainly because we've been mad, mad busy. Like, broom up our backside busy. And because, well, there's not been that much coming out. Brace yourself for the next three weeks though. It's going to be mental on the Playstation front. We'll try and keep you up-to-date with everything that happens, yo...

They may not be on store shelves just yet, but Capcom's already announced that there's DLC headed to both Super Street Fighter IV and Lost Planet 2
The former will get a new online tournament mode on June 15th allowing (presumably advanced players) to fight for control of persistent championship titles that prove youre the best in the world...
As promised, Capcom has started sending Lost Planet 2 demos to fans
In order to redeem a free code, you'll need to register for the Lost Planet community site, which in turn will require a Capcom Unity Membership. If you've got all that though, all you'll need to do is head to this site and wait for your code to arrive. Note that the code won't work until March 31st.
Capcom's released a new multiplayer trailer for Lost Planet 2
It looks pretty bonkers to be perfectly honest. The video shows off explosions, new v-suits, weapon upgrades and some more explosions. The game's out May 11th. Lucky folk will get into an early demo this week. Yeah, we're starting to be tempted.
If you're waiting for Lost Planet 2 then
.. Prepare to wait a little less. It seems strange even typing it, but Lost Planet 2's release date has been moved forward a week to May 11th. In addition to that surprisingly pleasant news, Capcom has announced the game'll get a new multiplayer demo next week, accessible via community distributed voucher...
We've not been sure about Lost Planet 2
The original wasn't particularly brilliant, and the demo (beta?) to the sequel didn't do much to inspire us with confidence. However, this epic trailer featuring trains, massive enemies, character customisation and ridiculously polished production has our attention again. Here's hoping the final game's as good as this trailer.
This is going to cause a huge backlash. Capcom's producer for Lost Planet 2, Jun Takeuchi, has essentially admitted that content has been cut from the sequel because of limitations on the XBOX 360 disc. Limitations that, yo, aren't really relevant to Playstation 3's blu-ray."There wasn't especially any big trouble [with the development of the game]. More than those kind of..
In an attempt to make our jobs a little easier (read: probably something to do with fiscal years and business jargon), Capcom has pulled two major Playstation 3 games out of Q1, 2010
An investor document published by Capcom Japan today indicates that Super Street Fighter IV and Lost Planet 2 are due to be released across the "four quarters" of Fiscal 2011. That's like, April 2010 - March..

Lost Planet 2 - now officially confirmed for the Playstation 3 - is going to have some massive monsters and four-play co-op
All of which is demonstrated in the impressive showcase above. Capcom seem to be obsessed with co-op these days. It must be part of the whole "Western" approach. Still, it looks rather fun. Those bosses are enormous.
Given our irritation over a Japanese page yesterday that seemed to hint Lost Planet 2 timed exclusivity, it seems Capcom have finally thought it apt to put the record straight
"Day and Date launch on both platforms is the plan," Capcom PR director Chris Kramer told Joystiq. "Might ship a bit earlier in Japan (like RE5), but US/European releases will be..
The debate on Lost Planet 2 rages on
A Japanese site for the game has estimated release dates for both versions of the game - the XBOX 360 version listed as winter and the PS3 version TBA. While this is no confirmation of timed exclusivity by any stretch, it's certainly looking likely. To be perfectly honest we wish Capcom would just say what's going on with the game and be done with it.
Were you being kept up at night not knowing when Lost Planet 2 would launch? Don't worry valued reader, we've got your back
According to the official website, the game will launch "this winter" in Japan. Note: winter leads anywhere up to February 2010, and given Capcom's endeavours earlier this year, we'd expect them to skip on the Christmas rush. The game was announced for PS3 by Jack..
Sneaked into Jack Tretton's briefing, he announced that Capcom's Lost Planet 2 would be coming to the Playstation 3 this year
There had been some confusion as to whether the game was an XBOX 360 exclusive; apparently not.
Eagle-eyed website GamingFront
net</a> have found an interesting little tid-bit in the new Official Playstation Magazine regarding Lost Planet 2. The game, which Capcom have refused to comment on a Playstation 3 version, has previously been thought to be an XBOX 360 - something which goes against the new found "multiplatform" Capcom strategy."...Capcom has confusingly refused..
Capcom have announced Lost Planet 2 through an exclusive teaser on XBOX Live
Despite the nature of the announcement, we expect the game to be multiplatform due to the original Lost Planet getting an eventual PS3 port and Capcom's current multiplatform stance. GameZine are reporting a potential online co-op component for the sequel.
