We better hope that Capcom's vow to be a multiplatform publisher in the new generation holds fast, because Lost Planet 2 has just been announced…and we're not entirely sure if it's coming to the PlayStation 3.  It should be, but…

This highly anticipated sequel was revealed in a special trailer, exclusive to Xbox Live (which you can view here ), and we have to admit, the game looks great. It took a little while for Capcom to bring Lost Planet: Extreme Condition to the PS3, but since then, everything the publisher has done has included both Sony and Microsoft's machines (DMC4, SFIV, and RE5 are good examples). Therefore, we have to assume Lost Planet 2 is headed to the PS3 as well, but we can't seem to locate any confirmation. For the time being, we'll just have to revel in that announcement trailer, which should excite fans of the original. While the first one had a few problems, it was still a fairly solid action game that featured plenty of kick-ass mechs; you can expect more of the same in the sequel. Based on what we see and hear in that trailer, it appears that Capcom is embracing the "bigger and better" philosophy for LP2, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Let's just hope the game gets confirmed for both consoles some time soon.  They won't leave PS3 owners out in the cold (pun intended), right?

We know Dead Rising 2 is scheduled to be a multiplatform release, too, so why should Lost Planet 2 receive any special treatment?

I thought this seemed a bit crap compared to some of the other FPS games on PS3, although I did only play the demo so I can't be sure. Is anyone else looking forward to the sequel if it does reach PS3?

If it's on Xbox Live surely an Playstation or Wii logo won't appear I just pray that Microsoft hasn't gained exclusively by the usual $$$

I thought it was a terrible game also. If the sequel gets a major overhaul, I might check it out. I like the premise and the snow.

Honestly, I thought Fracture was a better game and that's not saying much.

No biggy even if its only for the 360. I didn't like the first LP just not my type of game plus i found it glitchy. The trailer looks good though. We'll see, probably a renter for me.

I enjoyed the demo of the first one though found some parts incredibly difficult. I thought Lost Planet PS3 didn't sell too well but that would have been because of the release delay. Capcom are taking a risk if it's an exclusive as they are stamping out what could have been a good revenue stream from PS3 owners.
I do expect this to not be the case and we'll see a PS3 trailer in the near future. I wouldn't hold my breath for a tv advert but then we don't get those anyway right?

II can read and II can type and II didn't like the demo, so therefore II didn't buy the game. So II think II won't be getting the sequel either.

I hated the first one. Hopefully this one is better. It was one of those games that didn't say "next-gen" to me at all.

I actually really enjoyed the first Lost Planet. The graphics were great, and played really well. Not sure where the complaints are, to be honest…
I like that it's a 3rd-person game, rather than the all-too-common FPS type.

After finishing the first one, I wasn't exactly waiting with bated breathe for a sequel, so I'm not too excited here…

Yeah, LP 1 was terrible…my 360 friends said so, the PC vers said so, and the inevitable PS3 flop said so also. Never bothered with the first (didn't even pirate it on my PC). Not going to bother with the 2nd. Highly doubtful they can clean up that game to make it any more interesting to me between 1 and 2. Besides, I'm playing Crysis: Warhead, WoW, Stalker: Clear Skies, and GTAIV on my PC, and Street Fighter IV on my PS3. As of Friday, I'm adding Killzone 2 to that. And sometime down the road, hopefully Diablo 3 and SC 2. Nah, I'll pass on the generic fps.

I noticed you also post on the Kotaku boards.

I check the site out daily, but most of the bloggers/reporters are a bit too pro 360 for my tastes.

your comment makes yourself sound like u are not a fanboy. but i clearly see a '360' in your user name, which… probably means u are a major fanboy.

anyone with the names xbox,360,halo,gears,master chief, in their user name are all fanboys of the xbox/microsoft.

by the way… i saw a crapload of xbots standing in line in the bitter cold to pick up a copy of the halo3 on its midnight release. now that's flocking!

I liked the first LP to some extent. Still haven't finished it – but the concepts were fresh compared to most shooters available at the time. (mechs, frozen planet, grapple hook, the health system etc.)

I seriously doubt it will be 360 exclusive. Capcom stated recently that all major titles would be multi-platform.

So why dump money into a sequel to a game that only a handful of people seemed to like? I won't even be renting this.

Have u guys seen the vid to lp2.shit awsome its lyk a cross between gears/lp & monster hunter.shit smells like its going 2 b delayed exclusive. Lp1 was good but had a lot of fault like graphic,animation,difficulty issues, uninspired levels,poor presentation. The final boss fight sucked it was the worst part of the game & the second last boss

If it is exclusive it will probably just be a timed exclusive.
Never even played the first so I wouldn't care.

I liked the trailer. Looks like a good sequel. Lost Planet is what the 360 had b4 Halo and Gears, so its only right that Capcom drop a sequel.

Yikes, so much hate for poor Lost Planet. Well I for one loved the original, enough to play it twice on 360 and then again on PS3 (though the PS3 version was a bad port). Still everyone here should relax because there is no way PS3 is not getting this day and date with 360.

Jun Takeuchi or Inafune (I forget which) said so in a translated interview posted 1up.com about a month ago. Capcom tried to discredit the translation because it messed with their marketing plans.

The reason it's only on Live is because much like RE5(hense why the 360 logo is always printed first in ads), Microsoft has a advertising deal with Capcom for this. In the interview Takeuchi said that they might do something extra for 360 users because thats where Lost planet and Dead Rising got their start.

The trailer itself looks pretty damn good with a considerable amount of things happening on screen at the same time.

I think the bad PS3 port of the first game has left a sour taste with many PS3 gamers. There was a stark difference between the 360 and PS3 reviews of the game.

I agree, this is definitely gonna come out for PS3. It would just go against Capcom's initiative of multi console support.

I don't care what anyone says about the game, I mean this game has improved so much by seeing the trailer. It looks great man, quit hating and for me the first game was great, I played it on my friend's Xbox and it was fantastic but it sucked that Capcom made a crappy port for the PS3 version, so I didn't get the game but still this game looks amazing and I think you guys shouldn't be so bitchy towards this game, hell at least we are getting it. It's better than nothing right?
