Lost Planet 360 exclusive
Reversing previous statements, Lost Planet producer Jun Takeuchi confirms that the game will remain a 360 exclusive for the forseeable future. "Typically when the [Capcom] development team sets out to create a game," he says, "we focus development of the title on a single platform and for Lost Planet that platform is the Xbox 360. We have no plans at this time of porting to or developing for another console as this would potentially dilute the final product." He also has thoughts regarding the Microsoft-resistant Japanese market. "Of course we wish there was a larger installed user base domestically in Japan, as do all Japanese developers and publishers. But the success of Dead Rising in America is proof that a Japanese developer/publisher can succeed globally with an Xbox 360 title."
