Lost Planet to launch at discounted price

Frustrated PlayStation fans have been angry with Capcom recently. First, Devil May Cry 4 goes multiplatform. While that was understandable (as more and more titles go multi nowadays in order to turn a profit), when Monster Hunter 3 went to the Wii, PS3-owning Capcom fans shed a tear or two.
Hoping to put an end to their stream on bad news, they unveiled their "big" announcement. Capcom revealed that their previously Xbox 360 exclusive title, Lost Planet, would be arriving on PS3 in early 2008.
While this news certainly didn't hurt the PlayStation community, it didn't set it aflame either. Now though, it appears Capcom has made a smart decision in launching their year-old title at a discounted price for Sony's system. Instead of the usual $60 standard, Capcom will release Lost Planet at a reasonable $39.99. Considering that Lost Planet on the PS3 comes with all the downloadable content the 360 version at a reduced price, it seems that Capcom may finally have something to please their PlayStation fans with.
More on Lost Planet soon.

Capcom had to be insane if they thought people were going $59 for this. Good move C becuz I'm definitely picking this up along with your DMC4.

Lost Planet sucks but good move on the cheap price.
Hint for the game - If there is a cliff and your running low on bullets propel down the side and the enemies will walk right off and die every time. but they might fix this on the ps3 version

Meh I don't think a majority of the PS3 fanbase really cares about this game. It didn't do as well on the 360 when it was released as everyone hoped it would.

played it didnt like it but ill buy it just so that capcom will see that there is still a market in the playstation corner.
- 7:45pm EST - December 8th, 2007
i dont think im getting it anyway, but thats a good move actually... something good from capcom, at least for once.

I understand everyones hate for capcom as of right now but at this price this game is about worth it for the multiplayer. Playstation users not buying games just proves the point that we wont buy there games at least give the game a try......i personally always felt like its was a playstaion game with the controls so alward on 360,,
- 9:10pm EST - December 8th, 2007
im not pleased i never got why people liked this game
- 9:38pm EST - December 8th, 2007
sure capcom keep making exclusives for xbox and take the few the ps3 has and just port lost planet for a cheaper price.

I just hope Capcom doesn't say something like "We are very sorry for the mistake,the price of the game is $59.99"

I`m defo picking this game up, at a reduced price and all the downloadable content from the PC and 360 version, why would anyone want to miss this great deal? I`m not angry at Capcom at all, I don`t like Devil May Cry, or Monster Hunter, so I`m fine with them...
