Capcom confirms cut content from Lost Planet 2 360, doesn’t rule it out as DLC

Thursday, 18 February 2010 11:47 GMT By Johnny Cullen

lostplanet2

Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi has confirmed that content was cut from the shooter on Xbox 360.

“There wasn’t especially any big trouble. More than those kind of difficulties, the edited content was way too much and dealing with that was more difficult than anything,” he said in an interview with Livedoor.

“This time, truly, the content that was cut was significant.”

He did say the content could make a comeback as DLC, however.

“I think we could be able to add that content at a later date as downloadable content.”

Lost Planet 2 releases worldwide on May 18 for PS3 and 360.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Sounds like it was cut BECAUSE of the 360 rather just FROM the 360 version. Because no doubt the PS3 version will also be lacking this content to. Well done MS, putting a dampener on everyones game.

    #2 5 years ago
  3. Freek

    I’m willing to bet that 9 out of 10 games suffer some kind of cutts during development. Why this is suddenly becomming news is a bitt odd. But then again, it’s the devs themselfs that started to talk about it.

    Its Capcom they will probably lock content on the Disc and make us pay for it as if its “DLC” This is them trying to save face me thinks.

    I’m confused, does that mean the PS3 version will have this content or not?

    They could have done a second disc if it was such a problem. The fact that they decided to flog it as DLC instead speaks volumes.

  8. zoopdeloop

    Blerk If they could have done a second disc it will just be marketing more towards Ps3′s favour.I mean look at FFXIII Microsoft advertising the shit out of it while the ps3 version advertises itself(cause of 1disc than 3) without Sony doing a thing.

    Truth be told both consoles are equal but Dvd’s are holding some developers back this gen as long as there is the alternative blu ray which gives to them more freedom.
    I realy hope the next Xbox will implement the Blu ray format or something more “flexible” so that there won’t be any issues like this gen for some games

  9. NiceFellow

    @7 spot on.

    There’s no doubt that for certain games the DVD will becoming limiting for content, and yes if you want to throw blame around the 360 represents the smaller capacity standard, but it’s pretty clear they didn’t go ’2 DVDs and 1 BR should see us alright’ but ‘hey, let’s cut it down to a standard DVD for content and charge for the cut stuff as DLC’.

    For an all out multiplayer game it would be ridiculously inconvenient:

    -”Hey buddy! I’ll invite you into my game.”
    -”Sure!” *Please Insert Disc 2* “:S”

    Later On:

    -”Lets go and to that other mission again, i think we could get a better rank.”
    -”You mean the last one on disc 1… Seriously?”
    -”Ok, lets just play some pvp.”

    I’m with Blerk on this one. If I were you, I’d argue that publishing costs could have swayed them towards making it a one disc game, more than disc-change inconvenience, but even that is a moot point, as they have already made up their minds.

    There’s no reason this couldn’t have been released on two disks ala ME2 or Forza 3, especially if the content cut was ‘significant’.

    Sounds like excuses to me.

    #20 5 years ago

    @ NGCes26294BIV

    It’s difficult in some games to split content based on the game’s structure. What could become come place if the XBox 360′s life cycle extends beyond this year and the next, which I’m highly doubtful it will, you may see more games being released on 2 disc with the single player and coop on one disc and multiplayer on another.

    #24 5 years ago
  25. NGCes26294BIV

    @Goliath

    You see what you’ve done there is mistaken fiction for fact.

    While it is entirely true that the structure of some games (i.e. open world) mean that multiple disks aren’t very practical, this does not apply to a game which is packaging a single, co-op and multiplayer experience all on one disk.

    - If there is no more room, then move the multiplayer portion to disk 2 – i.e. Halo: ODST.

    - If it’s a content issue, then have a second disk which provides the assets to the HD, much like a PS3 mandatory install.

    I get the feeling that while DVD is a limiting medium, it’s not yet as ‘old’ as people will have you believe. The main issue is development. The same game that takes up 9gb on a 360 disc will take up 22gb on a PS3 disc. Why? Because it can. It allows them to be less efficient with code. Not worry so much about optimisation. The lack of space makes them work harder at compressing the required data, and in this case they’ve not found a suitable way around it and decided against multiple discs.

    Perhaps they’re worried about their sales forecast?

    #25 5 years ago
  26. Dannybuoy

    Hang on, didn’t capcom come under fire for leaving DLC on the Resident evil 5 disc that was simply unlocked online? Maybe they have decided to remove it completely this time so they don’t get criticised again. Or it could be disc size. Either way. Can’t say I’m really that bothered

    #26 5 years ago
  27. No_PUDding

    Doesn’t matter, if they had to cut it, it wouldn’t have been fully developed anyway. Tons of thigns get cut in games, just not everyone says it.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. theevilaires

    @ 24…its M$ you know they pay devs to under develop so the PS3 won’t come off as better….first it was GTA4, then FFXIII, now this. Get use to it cause Sony won’t counter stuff like this often cause they have dignity.

    #28 5 years ago
  29. Goliath

    @ NGCes26294BIV

    As long as Microsoft continues to sell the arcade model of its console as it’s entry level investment, mandatory installs wont happen as you’ll alienate a large part of your install base so that’s not going to happen. With regards to Halo 3: ODST, I think you reiterated my point as to what may become a common model.

    To be quite honest, Capcom is being ridiculous. If they’re really this conflicted about having to cut content then they could have easily done what they have done with Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, which is provide PS3 gamers all the content on a blu ray disc and give XBox 360 gamers a token to download the additional content for free. What they want is a scape goat for their DLC structure. No company is indifferent to making money and DLC makes money. If you’re so conflicted give gamers the content for free then.

    Does Sony do these tactics often? So how is it hard for you to realize that my comment makes perfect sense. You really believe devs want to only release Day 1 content for 1 console if they aren’t offered money under the table?

    Microsoft is a business, doing the most to generate interest in their version of a software product readily available on another platform. How is that wrong or bad business? You act like Sony has a choice to not do the same, they don’t. For a long time, Sony had the greater part of market share so publishers came to them, not the other way around. This generation there is parity. Microsoft has greater market share and its console sells software. If publishers and developers feel so strongly about disc limitations fine, release your game only on the PS3, let’s see how well it does and how soon they go out of business! You think Microsoft can force companies to make these decisions? What’s holding Sony back is pride, they wont pander to publishers and kudos to them but it has nothing to do with dignity but more to do with politics and pride, plain and simple. You’re an idiot or maybe you’re just naive, either way, you’re a bit of a simpleton.

  39. theevilaires

    oh boy should i really respond to you…ok i’ll give it a shot…and here we go…Just because you love your precious xbox360 doesn’t mean it’s the platform devs should really be pushing game development on. They could easily make different versions of a game by not scrapping some of the stuff they have to get rid of because they can’t fit it all on one dvd….

    example, The FFXIII stuff that was scrapped. If they made all that stuff and could fit it on a blu-ray for PS3 then why not do it only for PS3 and cut the stuff from the 360 version. Because M$ pays them under the table to make sure the game is identical as the PS3 version and since the 360 has limited space capacity the PS3 has to suffer.

    Does that sound like a reasonable or do you think M$ are little angels. Whatever you think I’m done on the topic and the title of the article speaks for itself.

    Microsoft is the reason you will be paying for scraped content as DLC because they have the inferior product. Uncharted 2, God of War3, Gran Turismo5, and Killzone2 Says Hi.

    Nobody can deny the MS marketing machine is second to none.

    Right or wrong does not matter to the developer really if it means there game is going to get up there.

  43. zoopdeloop

    Goliath TEA has some point here and there so do you.
    Microsoft pays for exclusivity third party developers for games,DLC taking away the experience from other gamers.Off course they are doing business to compete and to draw attention but sometimes there are much more better and creative ways to compete than the easy solution “money” and sometimes when you hear Microsoft reps talking like trying to compete not only Sony but the userbase as well isn’t “healthy” and then some people see it that Sony cares a little bit about the industry, they want to expand it, they already have expanded it to some degree, already which is true at some point

    While Microsoft’s attitude seems to be “Win win win, money money money”. They throw money at every problem instead of working on themselves for solutions that will benefit themselves and the consumer. Sony and Nintendo do things differently while Microsoft shows that only cares about winning at whatever cost.

    Off course that doesn’t mean this is entirely the case but hope we see Microsoft throwing the loads of money to try and expand the industry instead of “holding” it and gamers back.Maybe Natal is their real solution…only time will tell

I’d hate to share such a shallow view of things like you do. And I have no idea who Glen Beck is but I’ll google him just to humor you.

  • GTA 5 car gun mod is ridiculous, awesome
