Capcom has pulled the demo for the PS3 version of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition in the US as, for some as yet unexplained reason, it refused to connect to multiplayer servers.

“The multiplayer demo for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is temporarily being removed from the PlayStation Network in order to address issues that have come to light,” said a post on the US PlayStation blog. “We will be working overtime to correct the issue and expect to upload a new version to the PlayStation Network as soon as possible that accurately reflects the incredible online features of the game.”
