Xbox 360 Lost Planet 2 content due to space limitations

Fact: There's more space on a Blu-ray disc than a standard DVD. So there's that.

According to Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi, this fact became a bit of an issue when developing Lost Planet 2 for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. According to Takeuchi, "significant" content was cut, and the team had to "wrestle with disc space." It was so hard for the team, says Takeuchi, that it was on the "verge of crying."

When contacted about the cut content, Capcom issued us this statement:

Capcom’s development teams have a reputation for creating some of the highest quality titles in the industry such as Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV. Editing the amount of content released with the final version of any game is a standard practice during game development. Edits to the initial concept of a game can come from a number of sources including the amount of time given to develop the title, hardware constraints, story elements, or other factors that can detract from the experience.

We are confident that consumers will not be disappointed with Lost Planet 2 and the variety of massive Akrid, powerful vital suits, beautiful environments and deep level of customization included in the final product.

What's unclear is if both versions of the game will feature the same content, or if Xbox 360 gamers will get less Lost Planet 2 content on their discs. If the latter is the case, will it be available as downloadable content somewhere down the line?

We've contacted Capcom for a follow up, and we'll let you know when we know more. In the meantime, feel free to pull out your PS3/Blu-ray flags and let 'em fly.
