Speaking in an interview with GameDaily, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi revealed that the publisher is currently investigating other platforms for Lost Planet 2.
The game was officially revealed a few weeks ago via Xbox Live for the PC and Xbox 360, but it was thought that a PlayStation 3 version would be confirmed shortly after.
Takeuchi was then asked about the current economic climate, saying he's confident that the industry is less susceptible to the downturn.
“I agree with the theory that the game industry is far less susceptible to the current economic downturn, and the market appears to have proven the theory,” said Takeuchi.
Hopefully an announcement regarding a PS3 version of Lost Planet 2 isn’t far off.

What a load of bull
This isn't a crime scene people!
you either say "We are developing a PS3 version" or you aren't
there is no real heavy thinking here

Who cares? Capcom is obviously trying to get an incintive from sony to bring the game to the PS3 with this noise.
If ya feel more secure with Microsoft, Capcom, then stay with them like Enix.

no its a Wii version , otherwise they will say it loud and clear " for the Play Station 3 " ... we saw how the PS3 verion of RE5 did an outstanding job in japan ... but they also side that they'r trying to reach to more western gamers ... means maybe Wii, DSi or PSP version of the game .. but i dont think they are doing a PS3 version

First one sucked, second one is a pass at best.
- 5:14am EDT - March 20th, 2009
U don't make games for ps3 then we don't want u either. but lost planet it not a lost so keep it. we know u like to suck up to xcrap360 anyway.

Agreed solid squirrel...Capcom is just full of it. I 've lost respect for them....the only game I'm willing to buy from them now is DMC. They can keep all of their other tittle (INCLUDING RE5...I mean 4.5)lol

Come on Capcom you can see clearly with SFIV and RE5 that the PS3 is your main source of income .....just announce the damn game for the PS3 and stop playing hide games with MS money.
- 7:38am EDT - March 20th, 2009
Didn't like the first one, if this one is anything close to the previous one, no thanks!
- 7:56am EDT - March 20th, 2009
"i hatez capcom with you xcrap360 and RE5 lololz" Capcom is a premier developer, that makes outstanding games most of the time. Go cry about market competition and DLC pricing structure to someone else. Fanboys suck

I thought it was already confirmed that Lost PLanet 2 was coming out for the PS3. WTF? Hey, btw anybody know if Mass Effect 2 is coming out for PS3 for sure or not?
- 8:54am EDT - March 20th, 2009
It's coming out for ps3 maybe another one for DS or psp but its coming for psp this is all a crock.
The first one was amazing.
This whole 360 exclusive is to make us think it wont come out for ps3 so we go buy a 360.
Ninja Gaiden 2?
- 10:00am EDT - March 20th, 2009
haha lost planet 2 will not make any PS3 owners buy a 360, thats a joke. btw the first one sucked.
- 10:53am EDT - March 20th, 2009
the first one was crap imo and what the h e ll does that statement he made about the industry have to do with a ps3 version of lost planet 2??? Not only that but didn't capcom say when dmc4 was released that they were a multiplat company??? this article is all kinds of messed up lol
- 11:22am EDT - March 20th, 2009
Just bring the game !
- 4:03pm EDT - March 20th, 2009
investigating other platforms... Wii? PSP? Spit it out already it's not as if there's any other console/machine out there other than the PS3 so you don't 'investigate' to hard... idiot!
- 4:16pm EDT - March 20th, 2009
Wasn't Capcom telling everyone last year that all new games would be multi-platform?
- 4:53am EDT - March 23rd, 2009
I wouldn't believe anything Capcom says they cleary but not said it out loud said we are not making a ps3 version Capcom is all about money now a days so they think going with the 360 will be the right move even through they clearly lied about all their games being mutiplat theirjust like sucking on microsoft balls
